During the interview that Roger Goodell did with CBS yesterday, the NFL Commissioner said that he does not expect to lose his job because of the Ray Rice scandal and the NFL's botched reaction to it. And he's probably right. While the NFL clearly didn't do a good job of investigating Rice's assault of his then-fiancée Janay back in February, Goodell isn't likely to lose his job over it. But at least one big organization thinks he should resign as a result of what's gone on with Rice and the NFL in recent months.
The National Organization for Women is calling for Goodell to resign immediately in light of the Ray Rice scandal and all of the other domestic violence cases involving NFL players that have popped up in the last year or so. Terry O'Neill, the president of the NOW, released a statement asking Goodell to resign earlier today.
"The NFL has lost its way," O'Neill said in the statement. "It doesn't have a Ray Rice problem; it has a violence against women problem. The only workable solution is for Roger Goodell to resign, and for his successor to appoint an independent investigator with full authority to gather factual data about domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking with the NFL community, and to recommend real and lasting reforms."
