    Why would the women's groups be involved in this?

    Adam Schefter is hearing that while the investigation is still ongoing, Ezekiel Elliott is bracing for a short suspension stemming back to his alleged domestic violence incident in 2016.

    If EE was cleared of those charges, and the league suspends him, I hope he sues the league.

    The NFL is becoming an embarrassment, as far as I'm concerned Goodell being giving the power he has is why ratings are dropping, people tune into sports to watch star players...

    People are running with Rappaport's "weed" tweet, which was very likely made in jest. I actually like the guy but a C level actor is not breaking NFL league office news, gals and gals. If EE is suspended, its for the DV issue.

    I agree. This is a calculated move by the league office to float the rumor a possibility of punishment through "sources". Gotta believe an official ruling will be released before training camp in 2 weeks.

    It's not going to happen.

    Which will make this the best off-season ever.

    If he is suspended, no matter the number of games, the only legal avenue he really has is to appeal the suspension through normal channels. The NFLPA, via the CBA, gave Goodell the authority he has. There really is no legal basis to take it to court. He would lose. That said...Goodell is a douchebag...

    The only "smoke" is what the media is blowing and the fact that the league hasn't closed the investigation.

    The hints we have that are real are that Zeke has texts from the girl saying she'd ruin him if he broke up with her and the text her friend has where she asked her to lie to the police.

    Other than that it is random guessing on twitter by media (and not even media) every couple of weeks during the off season.

    This is how whole villages used to end up with torches and pitch-forks burning a woman they thought was a witch. People work themselves up into a frenzy when there is no tangible evidence.

    This post is really dumb. That whole case has been made public and no, the NFL does not have some top secret information on that case no one else has seen. We know what they know. Seems like you support a witch hunt from Goodell, which is exactly what this is. You support Goodell just making up stuff as he goes because in your words, "behavior that needs correction". So yes, let's suspend a player when it was proven the woman was coerced to lie and made up the entire incident. Hence why no charges were filed and the case was dropped.
