    If much of this is true, he shouldn't not only be banned forever from playing in the NFL, but in jail.


    Sorta reminds me of a mini-Seattle Times/Jerramy Stevens novel of an article from so many moons ago. Stevens by the way (I think) only served a one time one game league suspension for all of his heinousness.


    You won't find many people here defending him

    Please understand I wasn't saying anyone would and was not trying to change the course of the thread, but I did think about it while reading is all, so I thought there was relevance. Things are definitely different than they were 10 years ago.

    No worries, he'll have so much free time on his hands, he'll probably get himself in trouble again long before that :twisted:

    Vegas would take that bet off the board. He has that Aldon Smith mentality when it comes to trouble. It's not a matter of if but when. The guy likes his booze and drugs and has been told his shit don't stink all of his life, not a good

    Are you down there....I will take 2 weeks or under at the strat if you are there......LMAO.

    I know you are trying to semi-troll here but I actually agree. Stevens would have been in jail many times if he wasn't a star player @ UW and the Hawks. The guy was/is a dirtbag, through and through, and I'm saying that as a huge UW/Hawks fan.

    Sorry if it came off as semi-troll. Zero troll intent. The article at the time was unreal, regardless of the ethics or lack thereof of the Times (which I do not read on the regular). Thanks for agreeing.

    Ezekiel Elliott's suspension appeal hearing in New York will stretch into a second day, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Tuesday.

    Although the appeal hearing was still in progress after 5 p.m. ET Tuesday, it will resume on Wednesday, per Rapoport. The Dallas Cowboys running back is attending the appeal, which is being heard by arbitrator Harold Henderson. Elliott is scheduled to testify under oath at the hearing, Rapoport reported.

    So when he perjures himself under oath does he get suspended for more games???

  • His suspension was upheld, but the late decision means the NFL will let him play this Sunday's game. The NFLPA has already filed to get an order halting the suspension until it can be heard in court. That will be decided next week.

    An arbitrator has upheld Ezekiel Elliott's entire six-game suspension after denying his appeal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

    Although the suspension was upheld, due to timing the NFL is allowing Elliott to play Sunday, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.

    Last week, the NFL Players Association filed a petition with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas last week seeking to void the suspension. It also filed a temporary restraining order motion against Henderson’s appeal decision. U.S. District Court Judge Amos Mazzant III will determine at Tuesday’s TRO hearing if the suspension can be postponed while he reviews the petition. Mazzant will make a ruling by 5 p.m. CT Friday.

    Agreed, makes the defense look desperate. The league doesn't spend over year investigating this and then suspend EE who plays for one of teams with the biggest fanbase to not have the evidence and not have it's ducks in a row.

    Not only that but I believe the Brady case even further cemented the CBA's authority and subsequently Goodel's authority? They may get a partisan judge to initially agree, but would near undoubtedly be overturned on appeal.

  • Judge granted the TRO, so Elliott suspension is temporarily on hold until the case can be heard

    A U.S. District Court judge granted the NFL Players Association's preliminary injunction request on the behalf of Ezekiel Elliott on Friday, meaning the Dallas Cowboys running back's suspension is on hold -- for now.

    Judge Amos Mazzant III's decision allows Elliott to play as the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas reviews the NFLPA's petition to void his six-game suspension. There's no timeline for Mazzant III to make a decision on whether to allow the petition to move forward to trial, according to Gabe Feldman, director of the Tulane Sports Law Program.

    This is good news. The six games he was going to be suspended were mostly against other teams I'd like to see lose, including the rest of our division and GB.

    Week 1 - vs NYG (was probably playing this week anyways)
    Week 2 - at DEN
    Week 3 - at ARI
    Week 4 - vs LAR
    Week 5 - vs GB
    Week 7 - at SF

    It also opens up the possibility that he could be suspended later in the season, perhaps when we play them.

    The Seahawks will beat the Cowboys whether Elliott plays or not. Personally, I'd rather Elliott play so the Cowboy fans don't have that for an excuse when they get beat.

    I hope it ends up that Elliott gets his suspension right around playoff times and screws his team over.
