NEW YORK (WFAN) — In an exclusive interview with CBS News’ Norah O’Donnell on Tuesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was adamant that the second video of Ray Rice assaulting his then-fiance was “new evidence” that no one within the NFL had seen before Monday.
Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Irvin, who joined WFAN co-hosts Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts in his weekly spot on Wednesday, believes him.
“Oh, God no,” Irvin told Joe & Evan when asked if he believes that Goodell is lying about having never seen the second video. “God no. God no, I don’t think he’s lying. There’s no way anyone saw that tape … When you see that video, it’s just gruesome. And there’s no way anyone saw that tape and said, ‘Oh, well we’re only going to do this and no one ever say anything.’ It’s impossible. It’s impossible. It’s impossible.”
