Owners Pressuring Roger Goodell For Ezekiel Elliott Suspension

Owners Pressuring Roger Goodell For Ezekiel Elliott Suspension

Per the NFL's website, the league has concluded the investigative portion of their look into domestic violence accusations against Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott. It's far too early in this process to predict what will happen, but needless to say, Elliott better clean up his act, before investigations and suspensions will become typical affairs.

If the league does suspend him, it could open a Pandora's box for NFL players as the league would essentially be siding with the word of an accuser over a player, despite the case being dropped by legal authorities because of a lack of evidence. The running back was never arrested and the Columbus City Attorney's Office declined to file charges, per the report.

Elliott faces a potential suspension from the league, but as of this report no official ruling has been made.

According to the report, "The NFL Players Association recently filed to the NFL what the union, Ezekiel Elliott and his representatives hope is a final response that answers any lingering questions remaining in the league's year-long investigation". But the OH allegation wasn't the only matter investigators looked into.

Elliott was seen in videos and photos pulling down a woman's shirt and exposing her breast on the roof of a Dallas bar during a St. Patrick's Day parade in March.

Dallas police have suspended their investigation into the bar fight that Elliott allegedly participated.

It seems as though a suspension is nearly inevitable for Ezekiel Elliott at this point. Any discipline would be subject to appeal by Elliott.
