Dave Zirin jumped on the phone with The Dan Patrick Show to discuss Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti and the allegations that he pressured NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to give Ray Rice a light punishment. Zirin argues that it almost doesn’t matter whether they tried to cover that up or not: “What’s so crazy is that there are two ways to look at it. I mean, either we look at the ESPN story as fact…. [but] even if we believe everything that Steve Bisciotti says, then basically what he said was, ‘Look, we didn’t cover anything up, we just treated this case like the NFL has always treated domestic violence: we didn’t care.’” Making a connection with the former Clippers owner Donald Sterling, Zirin wonders whether Bisciotti is even fit to own the Ravens.
