The NFL's Roger Goodell gets embarrassed again in the Ray Rice Fiasco as a federal judge overturns indefinite suspension
Roger Goodell suffered another blow to his authority, judgment and his handling of the Ray Rice domestic violence case when a judge threw out his indefinite suspension of Ray Rice.

Fox's Media Buzz portrays Roger Goodell as a victim of a liberal double standard. But the excessive scrutiny hasn't changed viewership habits one bit because we don't care 'all that much' about character.
