Keith Olbermann demands everyone involved in Ray Rice cover-up resign

Olbermann also called for a fan boycott.

It's becoming more clear that someone along the chain of command covered up video evidence of Ray Rice assaulting his then-fiancee Janay Palmer. The Ravens cut Rice and the NFL suspended him only after the full video of the in-elevator incident surfaced Monday. In the wake of this fiasco's latest turn, ESPN's Keith Olbermann recorded a spot demanding that every party responsible for the drawn-out, covered-up aftermath of the attack -- prosecutors, Ravens officials, Roger Goodell, and Rice himself --  resign.

Olbermann specifically insisted that Rice be banned for life and extended the blame to all everyone -- fans included -- for failing to respond to the incident, calling for a universal boycott until all involved are gone from the NFL.
