    On ESPN this morning. ""Growing sense in NFL circles Zeke will have a short suspension." 1-2 games. No particulars, take it for what you will.

    I just don't understand what you can suspend for even being at the leagues discretion.

    There was nothing there.

    I would get a fine or even a 1 game suspension for pulling the girls top down, he actually did that.

    This all day long. If he is suspended (of course for a game against the Giants) I would fight it tooth and nail. I don't understand how a police investigation into a possible criminal matter turns up that the supposed "victim" was lying and attempting possible extortion and the league could in any way justify suspending the other party.

    I have a growing sense that Schefter is a dumb ***.

    Clearly, we aren't privy to everything prior to or after the event in question. If the NFL has evidence that his behavior needs correction, there will be a suspension, regardless of criminal charges. If it's BS, Zeke will fight it. If he knows he did something wrong, he will serve the suspension in hopes of keeping his actions out of public information.

    I won't be surprised either way with him. Great player; lots of maturing to do if he wants to be a franchise player.

    Rumor is that it is for weed, not the girl. But, I thought a 1st substance offense was 4 games :huh:

    Don't you have to test positive for marijuana? I hope Zeke is smarter than that.

    Yes, no clue what is fact or fiction anymore regarding our Cowboys actions these days :(. It would not surprise me if he failed a test though.

    That's what I was thinking. If it is weed... then it should be more than 1 or 2 games.

    Maybe they've realized it is just second hand smoke from living in the same city as Gregory.

    And if Zeke fights it, the NFL will reduce the suspension to one game so that he misses the opening game.

    Against the Giants, by an amazing coinky-dink.

    Weed? He would have to fail multiple times. I bet it is a cover your butt suspension to keep the women groups away.

    If Zeke is found guilty of anything then I'm on board for whatever punishment that is leveled. However, if he's found innocent or even charges dropped and the league suspends him, someone needs to finally take the league to court as it's complete BS.

    As much as I'm morally opposed to what Zeke did, I don't see how you can suspend him for that. The woman didn't complain, and she didn't file any charges against him.
    This is REALLY a fishing expedition and an exercise in arbitrary rulership. I've pretty much been on Goodell's side. But if he suspends Zeke based on something as relative as "perception" without any hard evidence, I'm going to be among the last people to jump off his bandwagon.
