    If you make it necessary to see video or have eye witnesses, then you give the players the ability to buy their way out of these suspensions by offering the victim a payday. It works both ways. The thing here is that the league, as an employer (and under the CBA) doesn't need to have enough proof to garner a criminal conviction to punish these players, and they shouldn't need that much. They just need enough to make it reasonable to believe that the morality clause was broken.

    From what is publically available and what the lead investigator has stated I don't agree that this exists in this case.

    "NFL lead investigator Kia Roberts testified this week that she recommended that Elliott not be suspended for his alleged domestic violence incidence. "

    she was the only NFL employee who spoke to Elliott's accuser, Tiffany Thompson, during the 13-month investigation

    Why does speaking to the victim automatically qualify her as the most qualified to make the judgement. You yourself have said how money can play a part in this, and it's pretty simple to jump to the conclusion that if the victims can be motivated to come forward looking for money, then they can be just as motivated to keep their mouth shut or even outright lie for money as well.

    The whole Elliott issue easily passes the eye test for me. In my opinion, he's done plenty enough with or without this exact incident to warrant the suspension, and the fact that the victim won't corroborate anything after the fact is pretty meaningless especially since charges were already off the table in the criminal investigation. It's just too easy for rich athletes to just pay off their accusers. Even under a rookie deal he's still looking at missing out on $600,000 in earnings (not including the fact that it's a first strike). Put yourself in her shoes....would you take say half of that to shut up? I probably would for less knowing he wasn't going to be charged criminally.

    1) It doesn't in itself classify as the most qualified person because she spoke with the victim. The fact that the LEAD investigator spoke to the victim then recommend something and is not included in the sentencing hearing as the lead investigator is what combined speaks volumes

    2) I completely agree and stated it before if he was suspended for other items then it would strengthen the NFLs case and I frankly don't understand how he is not suspended for the sexual assault that is on freaking video tape. HOWEVER the NFL has stated clearly that those items are not part of this suspension.

    I agree that NFL investigating is fine and should be done to avoid them buying people, but on the flip side it has to hold up to some reasonable expectation and we disagree if this does. I am not the only one believing this. If you look at Bill Reiters history on condemning players and then his stance on this then you would get one more vocal voice in the media that has looked at this enough to really question the NFLs decision here.

    So in the end we disagree - don't know that we can get it any further.

    We can definitely agree to disagree, but this isn't a matter of what we think should be done, it's a matter of what the league can legally do. From all appearances it seems as the league is well within it's rights on this issue. It's just a matter of time before he will lose his appeals. Ironically, if he gets this pushed back until next year, he stands to lose about $400,000 more than he would lose this season

  • NFL asked for this to be expedited but the court said no. He will be eligible to play week 8

    A federal judge denied the NFL's request for an expedited preliminary injunction hearing in the Ezekiel Elliott case, ensuring the Dallas Cowboys running back will be allowed to play against the Washington Redskins this coming Sunday.

    U.S. District Court Judge Katherine P. Failla confirmed Monday the hearing will take place on Oct. 30 at 5 p.m. ET. If the judge does not grant the NFL Players Association and Elliott a preliminary injunction, he will be suspended again. If she does, his suspension will continue to be on hold as the case makes its way through court.

    Judge denied NFLPA motion with a 24 hour stay for appeals. If none are requested or granted then his suspension begins this week. This would have him back the week before they play us

    I hope they keep on appealing this until next year. They won’t be going anywhere with that crap defense this year anyhow.
    According to the “internet lawyers” on a couple of *allas forums there was no way that Kessler (NFLPA lawyer) and Jerruh Jones with his “influence” would lose this case. Oopsie! 8)

    So let's hope it succeeds for another week. Not that we will need it if we're actually in the race given the Rams aren't fooling around.

    Meh, most owners see right thru Jerruh’s self serving agenda. I’m not a “Rog fanboy” by any stretch but if I’m Rog and Jerruh continues to piss me off, I start popping “random” drug tests on the Cowboys best players and Zeke when he returns.

    This is probably a good topic to start a new thread but I read today that jerry has the ear of 16 other owners on not renewing Goodell's contract. They may not necessarily follow through but they are listening. Of course I also read that it takes 24 owners to remove Goodell so it's just a lot of talk for now

  • Eventually he's going to have to serve the suspension, it was collectively bargained and there is nothing any court can do in the end. At this point they are flirting with the possibility of not having Elliot for playoff games (if they bump it again). He needs to just do the time, but I get the feeling this has gotten personal, on both sides, and that they are thinking emotionally and not logically.

  • http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000870468/article/nflpa-elliott-file-appeal-on-district-court-ruling

    Lawyers for the NFL Players Association filed an appeal to the Second Circuit on Tuesday in the Ezekiel Elliott case on Tuesday in an effort to get the Dallas Cowboys running back on the field as soon as possible.

    The motion comes a day after U.S. District Court Judge Katherine P. Failla denied the NFLPA's request for a preliminary injunction in its case against the NFL, reinstating Elliott's six-game suspension.

    The NFLPA earlier Tuesday filed a request for an emergency stay in the U.S. Southern District of New York on the ruling, but Failla quickly denied the motion.

    Although the Second Circuit offers Elliott the best chance to return to the Cowboys this season, his odds of success are growing smaller. The Second Circuit ruled against Tom Brady during the Deflategate case and Failla repeatedly cited precedents established by the Second Circuit in that case in her decision to not grant the union's preliminary injunction request.

    24 to remove but this would not be a removal. It would just be a non-renewal so all he needs is 16

    This delay is good for Seattle - this seals it. IF he gets suspended the 6 games then he will miss the Seattle game

    Of course could be reduced could be delayed further etc

    Just so it continues until right before week 16. Hey, if the Rams get to dodge a bullet with Houston it's only fair we do the same with Dallas.

    This week doesn't seal it. If his suspension begins week 10, he'll be back for week 16. He needs to play next week then have the suspension kick in at 6 weeks for him to miss our game.

    Exactly. The Cowturds fan at my work happy, and shocked I was happy about this. I told him the longer this goes on the worse it gets for *allas. He thinks it’s going to be be thrown out or reduced. I asked him to bet on that, of course he chickened out. He’s sitting out 6, it’s just a matter of when.

  • If he can play just one more game after this weekend, the 6 game suspension would have him out for the Hawks game. Come Jerry Jones, pay off more judges and make it happen.

  • I don't the need to worry, we typically not always are at our best with big name backs on defense, it's no name RB's and QB's that have a tendency to look like HOF players against us.

    This week doesn't seal it. If his suspension begins week 10, he'll be back for week 16. He needs to play next week then have the suspension kick in at 6 weeks for him to miss our game.


    Sorry I missed their Atlanta game when I looked at it on google - thanks

    Paying off witnesses/victims is what Jerruh does best, wouldn’t surprise me if he has a few judges in his pocket as well.

  • NFL should tack on two more weeks to that d-bag for not manning up and taking his punishment and wasting so much damn time.

  • Better yet, I hope he is forced to start serving it so that his first week back would be the second round of the playoffs, and Dallas BARELY loses in the wild card round largely due to an abysmal rushing performance. That way some of his teammates will blame him for being selfish, and rightfully so.

    Agreed. I see a lot of “random” drug tests in his future.

    I wouldn’t surprised if he is out of football in 2 years. Likes to party too much, thinks he is invincible, has little self control, and throw in the fact he appears to be dumber than a bag of hammers, that’s not a good combo.

  • Anybody else think that Rod Smith will be the next running back that we lament over no longer being in Seattle? I thought he was very impressive in his short stint with the Hawks. He seemed to be very versatile and the type of RB that they are now sorely lacking. I think Rod Smith will perform better than AC (Alex Collins duh) over the next 6 games (provided Zeke suspension sticks).

    Or he gets out of shape, and his beer belly gets bigger becuase he is smoking pot non stop. 8)

    After all of the dust Jerruh is stirring up with the other owners and the commish, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Zeke get “random” drug tested, kind of like the ginger ninja Jon Ryan got tested after being on the American ninja warrior show all hulked out.

  • Looks like it's officially over. I saw on my phone that he's withdrawing his appeal of the suspension and will serve his suspension. This means he'll be has a lot of downtime to either spend getting ready to play us or to get himself in trouble again

    Makes you wonder if the NFL had MORE evidence he was guilty and threatened to go public with it, if he didn’t throw in the towel. One would think if you were truly innocent, you’d still be fighting to save your reputation.

    I think it's more of a publicity issue. He wants it to sound like he is choosing to take the suspension instead of losing the court battle. Although he could have had another hearing in December, he'd have already taken 4 games of his suspension by then, so he really is better off now just to go with it and "drop the appeal" as if it was ever going to get him anywhere.

    Plausible, but I think anyone with half a brain that wasn’t a cowboys homer or have him on their fantasy team, knew how this would end as the commish has the power thru the CBA, see the Brady case. The NFLPA knew this, Jerruh knew this, the lawyers knew this.

    Maybe I’m off my rocker but I think the NFL had a mystery Trump card to play and that was more evidence against EE, that the cops either didn’t find or was found after they decided not to charge him criminally, or at least more to this than we are being told. There is something missing to the story IMHO.
