What a farce. I can't imagine how furious Cowboys fans must be, and they should be.

Someone posts the texts from the alleged victim where she basically admits to lying.

I thought that all these were at the current point in time were allegations? Has something concrete been found?

We're going to have to see the details, but as I understand it:

-Elliott destroyed his cellphone.  That was a moron move, Brady's suspension was due to that as a huge component.

-No criminal charges were laid, unless there is new info, it's he-said / she-said.

-Zeke's St. Patty's Day incident and pics with a weed shop in SEA don't help him, but it's hard to see how those would up the ante this much.

 

There has to be some other info I'm missing - I don't see how you can go 6 games with the above info alone.   Guess we'll find out soon enough.   There's a window to appeal in the next 3 days, and then 10 days for the hearing to be held.  There likely won't be a court appeal given Brady precedent.  So I guess we'll find out in 2 weeks how long it actually will be, but it's hard to see any reduction more than down to 4 weeks.  Which is a huge blow for the Cowboys.  Man.

After reviewing the totality of the evidence, the City Attorney's Office, Prosecutor Division is declining to approve criminal charges in this matter for any of the (five) alleged incidents. This is primarily due to conflicting and inconsistent information across all incidents resulting in concern regarding the sufficiency of evidence to support the filing of criminal charges.

She also alleged previous counts of domestic violence but did not report them. The woman did not file charges in Florida after police were unable to arrest Elliott because of conflicting stories and a lack of evidence.

Oh my. I haven't been following the situation that much and admit I am out of the loop. But from what I have heard from posters and general fans is he shouldn't be suspended whatsoever. Can someone give me the quick lowdown?

He needs to appeal this. I get that there is a pattern of some concerning behavior in there, but I don't know that there's anything that warrants a 6 game suspension.

Literally all the NFL had to do a few years ago was set a precedent by choosing to defer to the courts. They could've easily deflected any criticisms from fans about playing alleged perpetrators towards the court system.

He'll appeal and get it reduced to 4 games which sets up a return vs Green Bay. It's in the NFL's best interests match-up wise and storyline wise. Well played by Goodell
