    Would it be legal for tech firms, for example, to ban together and refuse to hire someone? I would think that would be a cartel. What makes the NFL not an anti competitive entity?

    I wish someone would ban Roger Goodell for life from this league.

    This could apply to any NFL player.

    So a player can rape a girl, beat her or even murder someone and still play in the NFL. But if a girl lies (and be proven a lie) causes a player to be ban.......hmm something doesn't seem right.

    From the calls against the Packers 2 years in the playoffs to this should finally show the league (Goodell) dislikes Dallas

    Priests who abused children in Boston were routinely reassigned and for the high profile ones - moved to the Vatican.

    Yet the NFL would ban Elliott because of immature decision making.

    What in the world is happening?

    They are making him out to be a monster. He's far from it. I've seen plenty of players that have done a lost worse than Elliott and they get a slap on the wrist. The guy is immature and until I see more than he said she said I'm going to believe him.

    The league just wanted to send a strong message to Zeke, It would take an awful lot to get banished from the NFL, if a player was a huge drug dealer, rapist, murderer, or child molestation....

    The NFL is sending a message that they are trying to get it right ( the handling and punishment for DV and DV allegations). They have conceded that they handled things wrong and are starting fresh - with Zeke

    I'd keep trying then..theyre no closer to "getting it right" with this outcome.

    They will eventually....it's a work in process. I don't like it either, but I understand their point of view. They wanna crack down hard and send a message to all players. We messed up in the past, but we are gonna be tough from now on. Starting today.

    Anyone can get completely banished from the NFL. The NFL is just trying to put fear in the Elliot / Cowboys. If I were Jerry and Elliot (and all Cowboys fans), I would declare war on the NFL.

    I hope Zeke heeds Goodells warning. No more trouble or interactions with the law.
    He needs to hangout with Sean Lee, Dan Bailey, Jason Witten, and Cole Beasley

    I think the league may have given him legitimate grounds for a lawsuit seeking an immediate injunction claiming irreparable harm. The league is threatening him with banishment based on behavior they only speculate he did but cannot prove conclusively. If they are claiming he is now only one step away from banishment, he should be able to argue they have errored and are placing him in a position that is unjustified. There are so many places his legal team could go if he is willing to fight it.

    They have an anti-trust exemption.
