Roger Goodell defends NFL's 2-game suspension of Ray Rice Published: August 1, 2014

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell defended the league on Friday against criticism that it was too lenient in suspending Ray Rice two games for his "horrible mistake."

"We just can't make up the discipline," Goodell said. "It has to be consistent with other cases. And it was in this matter.
