If he gets 6, I see an appeal coming. If that gets denied and he ends up with anything more than one, I might seriously consider boycotting as well. 

For me it's the larger issue.  Police and prosecutors investigated and said case closed.  This is a vendetta.  There is no rhyme or reason as to how the NFL doles out punishment.  I'm hoping Jerry takes the league on.

To play devils advocate, Zeke being found not guilty, doesn't necessarily mean he's innocent. There's a lot grey area in cases like these that legal loop holes keep the authorities for diving into, so it's quite possible the league's investigators were able to uncover something two separate DA's were not. If that's the  case, then I highly doubt Jerry or Zeke, or the league for that matter, want that aired out publicly. 

 

I'm not assuming any of this to be true, just presenting a hypothetical for the sake of discussion.

I find it highly unlikely the NFL found something the police/DA did not. I believe it boils down to the NFL acting on hearsay and a culmination incidents.

Suspended 6 games for an incident that was lied about by the supposed victim, prosecutor refused to seek charges against. Goodell went the Ben Rothlisberger route on his one. Smfh

Can't say I'm surprised after this morning's posts around Twittersphere, but Goodell and NFL quickly becoming the punchline to a joke. 

 

Suspended on pure hearsay. Unreal.

I'm boycotting.  I can live without the NFL.  Their arbitrary application of "justice" is laughable.

Jerry act like you have a pair.  Defend your player, team, and fans and fight the dictator Goodell

Sick 'em Jerry.

If he legitimately has any influence, it's time to use it.

If Jerry fights the league over this I'm in his corner.  Cmon Jerry go full on Al Davis in his prime on that horse's arse Goodell!
