The scandal over the release of a video showing Baltimore Ravens star Ray Rice brutally punching his ex-fiancee/now-wife continues to build, with the NFL currently scrambling to deal with reports that a league rep received a copy of the clip in April despite claims that no one in the office had seen it.
