That Ray Rice told him that he slapped his that his then fiancee and that Ray Rice said that he. Hit his fiancee but that's a the small distinction for a lot of people who believe that whether it slapped or hit or whatever you saw those videos even the aftermath. And that should've told you a lot about what happened that elevator I think what this memo really is is a bit of a PR campaign for Roger Goodell saying that. Hey she didn't necessarily say that he was dishonest. She just said that she did agree with his version of events may be a small nuance there but. Roger Goodell the key is he's hired and fired by the thirty some owners that own NFL teams so he have to put up there's something that says look. I wasn't untruthful and she didn't say that I didn't do my job right that's the message he wants to send to NFL owners complicated situation still develop.
