    Per Schefter- the NFL will take no action since there was no criminal investigation. NFL will continue its own investigation.

    The whole thing should be suspect since there is no criminal investigation.

    They've taken action against other players without there being a criminal investigation.. what makes this different?

    There hasn't been a sworn complaint filed in this case. It's solely a civil suit. That, and the NFL hasn't conducted its own investigation yet.

    They could still suspend him based on the results of their own investigation. They're meeting with the woman next week.

    Normally the league's punishment is after either a) an arrest or b) the league's own investigation is done. Neither of those things has happened yet.

    Goodell's powers are so broad that he could probably take action anyway, but that's probably inviting a fight with the NFLPA that's not worth it to him vs. just waiting a week so they can interview AB and the accuser.

    I'm shocked.
    Do you really need to ask? Even though so many won't admit it, the league has favored status teams.

    Or they could suspend him
    Or Roger could ignore their own investigation and suspend him anyway. Oh wait, he's on the Patriots so that won't happen.

    The action often comes after a long NFL investigation. I don't see this as particularly different.

    Were you not watching football in 2016? Allegedly slightly softened balls got Brady a 4 game suspension.

    exactly. ANSWER? Because its the Pats. One standard for certain teams in the NFL...and a set of OTHER standards for all the rest. Good ole boys network is what it is.

    NFL wants to see the Pats score 100 points against Miami first.

    I actually feel for the Raiders in the AB situation. Not only do they get screwed royally by not having the services of AB at all, but NOW THE PATRIOTS get the player THEY wanted and had...and to make matters worse, said player disrespected his last 2 teams and got a free pass so far by the league & now the Patriots get to victimize the Raiders once again. See the history between those two teams. Gruden has a very real beef with the powers that be in the NFL. If he wants to pursue it. Patriots CLEARLY were talkin to AB and or his slimeball agent Drew Rosenhaus the entire time...its an obvious case of tampering and collusion... The player should not be playing in the NFL. Hes a nut case and represents the worse of the worse as far as human beings go. This goes beyond football. I didn't even mention the rape case. AGAIN.. he gets a free pass from the league. "NOTHING TO SEE HERE." lol..

    Robert Kraft, Goodell and AB are now tied at the hip DEEP in this. This could end up being the undoing of all involved. You reap what you sew.

    The Raiders traded for the nutcase, so I don’t feel much empathy for them. NE took advantage of the situation whether or not they knew of his plan beforehand.

    But, Antonio should not be allowed to play until 2020 for purposely getting out of Oakland. I would consider that conduct detrimental to the league. He should not go unpunished yet Goodell won’t do anything about it unless these accusations turn out to be something bigger.

    actually...I THINK your correct somewhat on the empathy..but look at it from a business perspective from the Raiders side of it. They secured the services of a supremely talented player for a ton of money, and got had. The guy not only was "flighty" and mental...he turned his back on his new team. Don't think for 1 minute that NE wasn't constantly undermining this from the start. I think NE wanted him at any cost,even if it meant breaking the rules. I would love for the NFL to look into this matter. Do you trust Drew Rosenhaus? If you do, I bet he has some ocean front property for you in Nebraska. This entire fiasco stinks to high Heaven. I don't even like the Raiders...but I do like Chuckie..hes good for the NFL...a good dude. I hate it that he and Mike Mayock got treated the way they did. Seems like a handful of NFL owners and teams are playing by a undisclosed set of rules,and everyone else gets the heavy handed treatment.

    The Raiders got screwed for sure but you can’t give them back the draft picks, what’s done is done in that regard. They took the gamble on that diva. I feel worse for the fans and the players who welcomed him with open arms.

    I don’t know if Drew was conspiring with the Patriots from the get go, so I won’t speculate on that but it appears like a high possibility.

    Again, Antonio should not be able to benefit from any of this, should have to sit out the season.

    Why are there so many on this forum that think any player should be be suspended immediately upon accusation? So many seem to be upset about Elliott being screwed, that they don't care if others get screwed as well, they just want to see everyone punished. And for some reason, they think that should happen immediately, even though it was well over a year before Zeke faced punishment. If they aren't suspended immediately, it's somehow because of their bias.

    These people make no sense.

    If you are referring to me......

    I never mentioned the accusations for his suspension. It has nothing to do with that. He should be ineligible to play strictly for his antics to get out of Oakland. That is conduct detrimental and is a bad precedent to set. IMO, if you don’t want to play for a team, then take a year off.
