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.
"What I want to see is success stories. I want to see people, when they make a mistake, I want to see them take responsibility, be accountable for it and make a difference going forward. I hope that's what Ray Rice is going to do."
