Go ahead Jerry and defend that fool Roger Goodell now....
Let's see if Jerry really has a set now
Hardy wasn't suspended until 2016. In 2015, he was put on the inactive list after week 1.
I am so mad at this,this is true witchhunt.Jerry should go ballistic on this.
Can't wait to see the evidence in this for comparison to past suspensions.
It would be so poetic to see Dak tear it up. A big f-u to the league and haters.
Team looks stupid insisting he won't be suspended at all.
6 games seems excessive and unprecedented.
The worst part is that Zeke can't even be around the facility during that time I don't think.
Zeke and idle time is a bad mix.
Pandora's box is now open.
Would you be shocked when the NFL refuses to disclose said "evidence?"
I wonder how long will the appeals process take. I don't think it will go as long as the Brady suspension because now there's precedent for courts to rule that Goodell can do whatever he wants. I think Goodell will complete his appeal hearing rather quickly. After that, I'm not even sure if any court will even hear an appeal because of the Brady precedent.
I tried to bring something very similar up in the Hardy deal with the NFL but it kinda fell on def ears. I mean, the circumstances are obviously different in certain respects but the actual premise, is the same to me. How can you take action against a player when there is no proof of wrong doing, in a matter?
The NFL did it to Hardy and they are going to follow on that precedence. Sucks but that's what we are seeing now. As to Elliott, learn and understand that the NFL is not Columbus and it's not a bunch of young kids from University protesting moral platitudes. This is the NFL and it is worth somewhere in the area of 75 Billion Dollars. They have been here for almost 100 years and they will be here a long time after you have come and gone Zeke. You play for them under a Personal Services Contract. You get paid a great deal of money in exchange. It's not a situation where you do things they way you want, when you want. You don't call the shots and you are responsible for adhering to the terms of your contract with the NFL. That means staying off TMZ.
I love watching you play and I think you could be a generational talent but your not the best I've ever seen. I would hate to not watch you play but the reality is that if the NFL takes you off on Sundays, I won't have any choice in the matter. Please stop making it harder for yourself.
That's it, that's what I think.
Just gonna sit back and see what happens erod. What else can we do?
While I am upset, I would really like to see the actual evidence before drawing any final conclusion.
