NFL indefinitely suspends Ray Rice, but is it enough?

The NFL continues to come under fire from critics for their handling of the domestic violence case surrounding Baltimore Ravens. The NFL quickly moved to suspend Rice indefinitely after the video of the crime surfaced on TMZ. Now, The National Organization of Women is calling for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s resignation. The NFL has been on a publicity blitz to let their fans know that they are taking the issue of domestic violence seriously. But some, like the Edge of Sports Dave Zirin, aren’t convinced. In his latest column, Zirin says “the NFL has about as much of a commitment to do something about violence against women as BP has to cleaning up the environment. “ He joins us on the phone.
