Hannah Storm delivered this powerful segment on ESPN yesterday morning summing up the horrific past week for the NFL.
“Fighting back tears, she spoke about how her excitement for the football season was destroyed Monday morning with the release of the Ray Rice video, and everything that came after it. She discussed the unanswerable questions from her young daughter.” – Sports Center
UPDATE: NBC News just reported that the NFL has tapped one of its female executives to run a “social responsibility” team and hired three domestic violence and sex crimes experts — including a former New York City prosecutor — as advisers.
The initiative will be headed by Anna Isaacson, a community affairs vice president. She will be assisted by three outsiders: Lisa Friel, former head of sex-crimes prosecution for the Manhattan district attorney; Jane Randel, co-founder of NO MORE, an advocacy group focusing on domestic violence and sexual assault; and Rita Smith, the former executive director of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
