That goes without saying.  His PK gets a game for admitting to being a serial abuser of his wife, and Elliott gets 6 when the authorities cleared him.  It's nuts.  Defies logic and reason

If there is in fact photographic evidence, then he deserves 6 games. How it was handled is another story, but yikes it doesn't sound good...

Outsider, chiming in.

This is crap. Really hope Jerry and his team out together one hell of an appeal.

The level of inconsistency is the maddening part of all of this. But, again, this is par for the course with Goodell and NFL

Yea inconsistency always sucks..but it went from an issue they didn't care about to an issue they are very sensitive about now.

As it's continued to be a problem for the NFL, they've pushed it further to get the amount of time right...I think 4 games is where they are at for the most part, and probably be where Elliot is at when it's all said and done

 

 

It'll be interesting how this affects the offense and Dak specifically

This is the part I find maddening. Someone simply saying one negative thing about him, or any other player for that matter, now may end their career?

If I were an NFL player, I'd go on strike. Screw Goodell and anyone else who was in favor of this suspension.

I am dumbfounded by this. The NFL is claiming there are pictures with expert testimonies claiming he abused her. If thats true - why would the police dismiss it? It makes no sense at all. Zeke, obviously, has proof that she is lying about the whole thing.... yet that doesnt matter?

Why would players go on strike because Elliot is a woman beater?  That makes no sense.

According to the NFL's letter to Elliot, there is photo evidence, thousands of text messages and a dozen witnesses.  This investigation took nearly a year.  If nothing else it was thorough.  If this was all a rouse for extortion money, this girl did one heck of a job covering it up.  I mean, to not only doctor some bruises for photos and not leave tracks in a thousand text messages, but to also find fake witnesses to corroborate the story?  That's organized crime level class A extortion and cover up right there.  Quite frankly, I don't think she's capable of it.  

What I find fascinating is how despite this evidence there is such denial among the Cowboys fanbase.  I don't blame you because he is your star player and you want to root for him on Sundays with a clear conscience, but you really are kidding yourselves.  The reactions are eerily reminiscent though.  Fake news.  Witch hunt.  Unfair.  ... Sad.

Photo evidence that police and the DA didn't discover and/or use in a legal case? Yeah, okay. ¬¬

Don't be naive about how the legal system works.  Many a guilty people have walked in this legal system.  With limited time and resources the DA will pursue the big fish and the easy fish.  A DV case that might get the first time offender some probation, and at the same time bring a media circus, is not worth it.

And many innocent people have been wrongly convicted.
