SNL channels NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell: 'We fight women'

Saturday Night Live returned last night just in time to skewer the NFL for its poor handling of a spate of domestic violence cases. And in the segment, a faux-commissioner Roger Goodell made a telling verbal slip in announcing how the league would respond to future cases of domestic abuse.

"What this says is we fight women," he added. "Oh, excuse me: We fight for women." --Jon Terbush
