The sports chattering class has now called for the dismissal of Commissioner Roger Goodell. That may happen if facts keep appearing out of the blogosphere that point to duplicity on the part of the leader of the National Football League. He has apologized for “getting it wrong” when he at first administered only a lenient two-game suspension to Ravens’ running back Ray Rice. That mea culpa proved inadequate when the elevator videotape revealed Rice’s quick left hook landed on the face of his fianceé. Goodell has repeatedly insisted that he and his people had not previously seen the smoking tape, although there is evidence to the contrary.
