Growing sense Ezekiel Elliott faces short suspension- Adam Schefter, ESPN!  So why does someone get suspended for a game, maybe two for allegations?  To this point nothing has been proven otherwise.  Was he not cleared by law enforcement?  I suppose that in the NFL everyone is guilty till proven innocent!   ESPN is FAKE News!  FSPN "Fake Sports Programming Network"  Ridiculous!

I think when the regular season starts everyone starts in the same place. #1 or #32 depending on your life outlook. (so #32 for you.)

I hope Zeke sues the NFL if a suspension is given to him.  Even if he appeals and he misses no games.  IMO Zeke not only has to fight for his own reputation but for the reputation of others who may find themselves in a similar situation in the NFL.  This young lady asked witnesses to lie and then lied herself to law enforcement agents on legal documents.  I hate that Zeke will have to be the face of this fight against the NFL but someone needs to stand up against Goodell and his god like perception of himself.

What's he getting suspended for?  Maybe for picking loser girlfriends.  She asked her friend to lie.  Case closed.  Domestic abuse is serious and a man should never hit a women.  Throw the book at him.  However, in this case, throw her ghetto "you know what" in jail.

I think once he signed on and joined the NFLPA, that option was gone.  Part of the CBA is well crafted by the suits to keep the NFL from getting sued by it's own employees.  I think his best move is to get the NFLPA involved in this because nothing has been proven.  They will have to run interference for him.

 

But then again, we have to ask ourselves this.  What is there about this that we are unaware of that would cause them to suspend him?  Isn't it in the best interest of the NFL to not suspend a rising young star on the most watched sports team on the planet?  Unless there is something they're afraid of popping up and bringing up another Ray Rice fiasco.

 

For this to have a dragged on for this amount of time, I am assuming there are things we don't know.

Maybe, but I've also heard that the lead investigator is a giant giants fan, Mara is friends with Goodell, and the nfl is desperate to look tough on DV. Suspending Zeke for one game they probably feel is the 'best' of both worlds

The idea that Goodell would take his ques from Mara is kind of far fetched when you consider that Kraft and Goodell used to be buddy-buddy as well. Goodell marches to Goodell's drum. Love him or hate him, agree or disagree with him, I don't think he's listening to anyone but the crazy, power-hungry little voices in his head. He reminds me of someone. Just can't put my finger on it...

This is BS, he shoulda been suspended a long time ago if this was a real deal type thing. I see no proof that he is guilty. Everything goes the way that she is a liar and crazy.

I miss read the title of the article at first... I thought that it said Zeke asked his GF to lie about what happened.

 

If this article is true WTF could they suspend him for??

True, although I'd bet the farm that forces "sympathetic to the cause" have been lobbying discreetly to influence opinions. Conduct unbecoming would allow for suspension that would A)make the league look better concerning DV, and B)weaken the Cowboys enough for rivals to gain advantage (nudge nudge wink wink). Of course that second point appears speculative....

Can't wait to read all the whining about the Cowboys being 0-1 because of suspended players.

But what happens when Morris and Dunbar light it up? Everyone knows Zeke is only good because of his O-line.
