  • NSFW Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott suspension decision expected today, 4 games?

    I read this week there were 5 or so domestic incidents in a July 2016 week so talking heads feel you have to give him at least the same 4 games that Brady got.

    Then the PC world press will demand a game suspension for the whole boob exposing thing.

    Accusations, he hasn't been convicted of anything. I find this a bit extreme.

        Under the terms of the NFL's personal conduct policy, players found by the league to have committed domestic violence are subject to "a baseline suspension without pay of six games" regardless of whether "the conduct does not result in a criminal conviction."

          It cracks me up that Jerry Jones felt there was no evidence to support any suspension. Fucking delusional idiot is approaching Trump levels.

            The major good news for them is it sounds like his family has reigned him in a little.

            Otherwise they probably would have had Manziel on that team.

              I suspect the suspension will be cut but even 4 games is larger than most expected a month ago.

              Rams, Eagles and Bill had a pretty massive trade for this time of the year. Rams trade a 2nd round pick and a starting CB for an oft injured, excellent WR who is about to be a free agent. Higher risk move than most Rams fans are recognizing right now. Bills now have:
              2 first rounders in 2018
              2 second rounders and
              2 third rounders.

              That's a major rebuilding step. There was zero chance Watkins was going to be resigned by the Bills with all his injuries.

                  Editor's note: The following is a statement released by the NFL announcing a six-game suspension for Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

                  Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys was notified today by the NFL that he will be suspended without pay for the team's first six 2017 regular-season games for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy.

                  Over the course of the last year, the league conducted an extensive investigation. League investigators interviewed more than a dozen witnesses, including Ms. Tiffany Thompson, who had alleged multiple instances of physical violence in July 2016, and Mr. Elliott. The league also consulted with medical experts. League investigators examined all available evidence, including photographic and digital evidence, thousands of text messages and other records of electronic communications.

                  Pursuant to the Personal Conduct Policy, Commissioner Goodell sought the views of four external advisors (see below) to assist him in evaluating potential violations. These experts range in experience from law enforcement, judicial and public service, and other specialized subject areas.

                  The advisors participated in a meeting on June 26, 2017 in New York City with Elliott, who was represented by his legal team and the NFL Players Association. The group also reviewed the league's investigative reports and materials, the expert medical reports, and multiple NFL Players Association submissions on Elliott's behalf.

                  In a letter to Elliott advising him of the decision, Todd Jones, the NFL's Special Counsel for Conduct, said these advisors "were of the view that there is substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that [Elliott] engaged in physical violence against Ms. Thompson on multiple occasions during the week of July 16, 2016."

                  After reviewing the record, and having considered the views of the independent advisors, the commissioner determined that the credible evidence established that Elliott engaged in conduct that violated NFL policy.

                  Elliott may appeal this decision within three days. If he does not appeal, Elliott's suspension will begin September 2, the day of final roster reductions for NFL teams. He is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games. Elliott will be eligible to return to the team's active roster on Monday, October 23 following the Cowboys' Sunday, October 22 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

                    I like how they had to include a "people of
                    color" reference.

                    oh, and on topic, this dude is guilty and should serve the whole penalty. Even if it means missing the niner game.

                      Or Hillary levels? Hillary seems to think there was no evidence. And there was evidence.

                      There is no Trump evidence, dumbass. Maybe it should be on Hawkfan levels?

                            The princess is threatening to release a sex tape of her and Zeke. In my opinion, if you are a guy do you give a shit about a sex tape that you are in? Unless youre hung like a peanut, who care.

                              He's probably dressed in women's lingerie and makeup.
