>> the situation with ray rice is so wrong on so many levels. the level now nfl commissioner roger goodell. commissioner spoke tonight but did not do so at what should have been a news conference with reporters but instead roger goodell did it the easy way with cbs which was clearly a controlled interview from one person. it protects him from the real questions. now, here's an excerpt from what he said. >> we had not seen any video tape of what occurred in the elevator. we assumed that there was a video. we asked for video. we asked for anything that was pertinent but we were never granted that opportunity. >> he assumed is lost.
10:55 pm
i don't believe the commissioner is telling us the full truth. now, you knew something happened and he's trying to tell us his people could not find out. the nfl has some of the top security people in the country. former nbi people. i'm told by nfl people they get what they want when they investigate. they have their ways. many other people have the video but roger goodell says he couldn't get it or see it? i'm also told by nfl people that people in the commissioner's office saw that tape. i got word from an executive at revel that they cooperated with the nfl and the ravens. they gave the video of the punch to ray rice's attorney and told the nfl and the ravens with rice as an employee his attorney was required to give the ravens and the nfl the tape. i always believe the truth will set you free. but in the case of the nfl, i think they will lie and try to make it the truth. >> all right. the eagles confirmed their injury problems today on the offensive line evan mathis ought for at least eight weeks with an

mcl sprain he suffered on sund sunday. and out for the season are the right tackle allen barbre. lane johnson back not for three weeks with high ankle sprain and linebacker naji good. they signed pro bowl offensive lineman wade smith formerly with seattle. phillies trying to play the role of spoiler gets pittsburgh. pirates in last play off spot. let's go to the ballpark. spoiler is not a fun time for the fans. but it may be for the phillies. that's freddie galvis playing short stop for the injured jimmy rollins. three hits tonight including this homerun which tied it up in the fifth at three-three. after galvis stole a base, miguel franco playing third base gives the phils the lead. they win it and the score there four to three. i will say this. i don't think people in america believe roger goodell is telling the truth and also there are more tapes i'm told that will come out. the truth is going to kill him. in the end it truth is going to kill him. >> the police report actually says that there was punch and
10:57 pm
she was rendered unconscious. that was in the police report. >> so --ing. >> i knew this. i know people that saw the tape and he can't see the tape. the reality is he did see the tape. the inform fl did see the tape and ravens owner who issued a letter to his season ticket holders did see the tape as well. that's what i'm told. i'm standing by that. >> thank you, howard. >> all right. >> thanks for watchin watch (vo) ours is a world of passengers. the red-eyes.
