NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has suspended running back Ray Rice indefinitely and the Baltimore Ravens have terminated him after video surfaced of him punching his then-fiancee in an elevator in January.[su_center_ad]

Rice had been suspended by the league for the first two games of the season, a controversial move that led to widespread criticism and to the league re-evaluating the punishment for domestic violence cases.

The new video shows Rice punching Janay Palmer, who is now his wife, inside an elevator at a hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey, seven months ago.

TMZ Sports posted the video Monday showing Rice and Palmer entering an elevator. Inside the elevator, Rice punches Palmer. Palmer lunges after Rice, and then Rice hits her back and she falls to the floor.

Previously, TMZ Sports had released hotel surveillance video of Rice dragging an unconscious Palmer out of the elevator. This is the first time video has been released that shows Rice punching her.[su_csky_ad]

    About time this POS gets kicked out, and as a Steelers fan, I hope we lay into those dirty Ratbirds on Thursday!

    Also disgraceful: Fox “News” Kilmeade jokes about it, and Anna Kooiman giggles.

    We’ve finally found something even the NFL doesn’t tolerate, sort of.

      After they realized how everyone was going to see the video of the fight in the elevator, if that video never made it to national tv, you can bet he would never have been fired even if the NFL executives seen the tape themselves.

        Watch Olbermann tear these idiots apart:

        I miss Keith! He really needs to be back on a news program instead of this sports crap.

          I always loved Olbermann, I heard something about contract talks, I am hoping MSNBC is considering having him back.

    I doubt, if this was the first time, that she was assaulted by him. I doubt, it would be the last time.

    I don’t agree with indefinite suspension. People make mistakes and can change if they get help but to basically ban him for life is taking away his livelihood.
