I expect him to be suspended for the whole season, anything less is gravy...
Allegedly destroyed. There is no evidence, ergo he must have destroyed it!
Thats the problem. Double jeoporady. The NFL putting itself above the law.
FS1 in this case.
I'm sure ESPN has picked it up by now. lol Not turning either channel on.
Like the Giants kicker who only got 1 game?
Don't think for a second the league is not purposely leaking this info.
They better have hard proof-- or Zeke's likely to win an appeal which would set a new precedent for the NFLPA with Goodell and make the NFL look even worse than not issuing a suspension.
It'd be funny if it wasn't so damn tragic... they get egg on their face with the way they handled Ray Rice-- and now they have overcompensated so far the other way they are likely to get egg on their face for backing a potential witch hunt against Zeke.
Regardless-- looks like we are in for some entertainment this week
I think I read some where that if is suspended for the first two games,he can appeal which might take some time and would still be eligible for the games until his appeal goes thru.
13 months to investigate a simple domestic violence accusation that the police/courts dropped a long time ago is ridiculous. That club incident proved to be a farce. All it did was tell us how stories break these days and spread like wildfire over blatant lies. A few tweets from random nobodies saying Zeke was involved and it was headline news all day long. Until it was finally proved to be b.s. It's the day we live in today. Jarvis Landry of the Dolphins went through the same thing this weekend. Supposedly he was on tape beating his baby momma. Some janky Instagram account posted it and other sites ran with it. Then it came out all he did was block her entrance from the car so she couldn't get into his residence.
Yet these sites and sources have zero consequences when spreading lies and slander on a player's name. We all know those stories stick with them even if it was later proved to be false. Just as many think of Zeke as a woman beater and someone who goes to clubs and assaults guys. You even had many on here that morning trashing Zeke's name all because they ready some story that had zero substance.
What committee hears the appeal? I know Goodell has the final say in all punishments handed down. If one is handed down, it's from him. Who can overrule his decision in the NFL?
I believe he hears the appeal unless they changed it. What a farce.
Cris Carter is a Fox analyst not ESPN
Yeah that was handled horribly. Repeat offender there too. Now they will suspend zeke for something that's speculative. Punishing zeke for their past mistakes.
Wow haha. Usually in the legal system, a different panel of whatever sort hears the appeal. Not the same exact people who heard the case the first time. Doesn't surprise me, though.
Of course no decision has been made yet. That would take all the fun out of waiting for the right moment to implode the team's season.
