Support is growing for former secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to take over as NFL commissioner following criticism of how the league dropped the ball on former Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice.

The Ravens swiftly canceled Rice’s five-year contract and the NFL suspended him indefinitely on Tuesday, one day after video surfaced on TMZ.com showing the running back knocking out his now-wife in an Atlantic City, N.J., elevator.

Before the video was made public, Rice had been suspended by the league for two games. The current NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, later called the original punishment a mistake, writing in a letter last month to owners, “I didn’t get it right.”

The NFL said it had only seen the new video on Monday.

Now, some are saying Condoleezza Rice — who expressed an interest in the NFL job before — should replace Goodell. A Tuesday editorial in The Washington Post wrote that the NFL is “an institution in dire need” of Rice’s help, with a blaring headline: “Condi Rice: The one person who could save the NFL.”

According to a 2002 story in The New York Times, “[Rice] wants to be commissioner of the National Football League. She is serious. ‘That’s absolutely right,’ she said, ‘though not immediately and not before Paul Tagliabue is ready to step down. I want to say that for the record.’”

Social media has also been buzzing with calls for Goodell, the son of the late Sen. Charles Goodell (R-N.Y.), to step down in favor of Rice.

  1. excellent post, very informative. I wonder why
    the opposite experts of this sector do not realize this.
    You must proceed your writing. I am confident, you’ve a huge readers’ base
    already!

    • As far as that WMD overplayed and played out liberal parroting Both Bill and Hill (the Clintons) as well as John Kerry who ran against him believed in the same intelligence info. So just like the NSA, the IRS, Fast & Furious, Bengasi, the VA with this administration all become old news of the past so has WMD’s get over it

        I apologize for my sarcasm to your original post. I feel very strongly about my negative feelings toward Ms.Rice. I don’t think she is fit for any office especially one of such high visibility and popularity.
        Nothing will change that, and I believe in her own way would be just as polarizing. that having been said, I should have allowed your statement to stand on it’s own. Although I strongly disagree with anyone who thinks she is okay, I respect your feelings on her.

      • I feel you every right to deem her unfit and I respect that,
        not everyone agrees with my opinions so I can either accept that or not voice them

  2. I believe that would be an outstanding choice the first female AA Secretary of State
    She’s highly educated served on B of D for many major corporations
    one thing about it in and organization dominated by males she would defiantly
    quell some of the perception that a Ray Rice incident would just be swept under
    the rug

    I have heard women speaking of role models for their daughters for a long time now. and not one of them has ever included Condi rice in the conversation. At one time maybe perhaps. One thing people look for in a role model is integrity and morals of which we have all found out, she has neither.
    When you lie to 300 million people, over and over, and then, after being exposed refuse to accept responsibility or fess up, role model or even good woman simply isn’t in the cards. This isn’t about hate, it’s about life. Life that she has taken away from so many.

    Wow, A great choice!!! Ray Rice punches his wife and he gets banned indefinitely. She is responsible for killing and maiming over 8,000 soldiers and she is supposed to get a promotion?!
    Why would you replace a man who mishandles a domestic violence and replace him with a person who almost singlehandedly ruin America’s place in the entire Arab world. I despise Ray Rice’s actions, they are deplorable. However, if Football is supposed to be somehow cleansed by Condaleeza Rice, that is like replacing a baby’s wet diaper for a SH—Ty one.
