    I wish this would all go away with no penalty, but frankly, I'd almost be happy to see the suspension just to know it's over.....UGH!

    There wasn't the exculpatory evidence in their cases. There is in Zeke's.

    It will not shock anyone if he gets 2 games. Ugh this gets me so angry how dumb this kid has been. If he wants to be great than grow up

    That's correct, my main point was they were never found guilty in the court of law. As I've said, most cases aren't exactly the same and nor are the punishments. I've said 1,000 times I think this is bs based on what we know. Once everything comes out, if it ever does, then we can whine and complain.

    Like everyone I just want to see this over with ASAP and move on but absolutely nothing will surprise me with the NFL. The officiating sucks, the way they handle personnel issues sucks, a lot of their penalties/rules suck. Why would I expect anything different?

    If the players don't dig their heels in on Goodell and the insane amount of power he wields over them, they are absolute idiots. When it's time to negotiate this next cba, that's going to be their only chance to get something done with this sham that is a suspension/appeals/investigation process. They better take it.

    Unfortunately, we live in a world where too many people believe that if you tell a lie
    enough times, it will eventually become the truth... and sadly, it happens often.

    Try learning the facts.......Goodell can't just do whatever he wants.......the is a very clearly defined CBA ....he routinely loses in Federal Court...... if he suspends EE for bs he should take it to court for as long as it takes

    If Zeke is suspended based on the evidence that is out there, the NFLPA should be foaming at the mouth to respond quickly, decisively, and with extreme prejudice.

    There's a part of me that feels like that's the play. Keep releasing info to keep it in the news. Make a big show of suspending him. Take it to court. Quietly acquiesce next offseason. That'd be my hope at least

    You seem to think people are entitled to employment unless they do something wrong, and provably so. Newsflash: They are not.

    This is an organization determining what is best for them. That doesn't mean they need some conviction or even evidence. They can just think you did something, or that somehow you are bad for their image.

    Do you honestly think your employer can't discipline you unless they could prove something in a court of law?

    They would have a field day with this case. Nothing says we need to tear up the old Collective Bargaining Agreement quite like completely ignoring evidence with Zeke so that Goodell can somehow make up for bad decisions that he's made in the past.

    Why on earth would the league respond to a NOTHING issue that "allegedly" happened....before he was in the NFL?
    And why would it take THIS long?

    This would add to my growing list of things about the NFL that completely turn me off. The NFL better be careful. The youth (20 - 30 year olds)....are not nearly in love with this game like us 40+ year olds. And if they continue to tick off the 40+ year olds....this league won't be left with much.

    As a Cowboys fan...I am MORE than convinced that there are people in high places that have it out for us....and as the NFL continues to allow these "people" to jerk us around....it will continue to strengthen my feeling that this is no longer a completive sport...but one big entertainment conglomerate! And once I stop caring about the "competitive sport".....I'm out!

    I am 46 and Fantasy Football and parlay cards are the main reasons I stay active

    The politics of the NFL has gone WWF and PC a long time ago..... too many fake storylines and drama and too much over-reacting to the crime of the week

    Schefter references the domestic violence case. So there is nothing to suggest that this is about weed or pulling the girl's top down.

    Police closed their investigation long ago convinced that there wasn't enough to consider charges. There are supposedly witnesses that confirm Zeke didn't do anything and supposedly evidence that the girl told people she was going to try setting him up. As we have seen in the past with these NFL investigations that drag out forever, there almost always seems to be some punishment. And then we will find out that the NFL never even talked to a lot of the witnesses. It's a joke. Completely arbitrary and capricious.

    Let's put this in perspective:

    Zeke was 20yo last year..

    I'm sure glad my life wasn't under a microscope at that age

    Elliott has done nothing the Police can charge him for!! No doubt the BS owners do far worse everyday they do business. Its disgusting. Goodell needs to be gotten rid of like the dose of clap he really is. The NFL front office makes me sick.
