This thread is proof that the NFL can't win no matter what they do.

And let's not say Zeke paid anybody off. That's a lawsuit.

Imo, good for the NFL for doing this. Let him sit hopefully without pay and learn a lesson as to just how fragile your career is when you batter a fragile women.
Aren't you a Bears fan

Seems that the complainers cry about "nothing happened cus the pigs couldn't find ****".

Seems most people ignore that many entities have their own parallel system that allows such accusations to be dealt with on an administrative level. Military, government, police, and high profile corporations have one form or another of this system.

Getting suspended or fined may tick off people here, but its better than being imprisoned or fired.

Too bad Jerry thinks he's above the rest, but going after Roger now would be rather counterproductive. Especially with regards to Jerry's history.

With the appeal it'll probably get reduced to 3 or 4 IMO.

Its very disturbing to me that Zekes statement does not explicitly deny ever hitting a woman

full disclosure as Many know I am a REdskins fan but this just seems like overkill. They were going to suspend him based on an allegation that was later proven false. And the NFL code of conduct basically says "You don't need a fair trial or anything to defend yourself. If you get ACCUSED you are going to get suspended."

Also someone been pointing out Brown (Giants Kicker) got 1 game but Zeke got 6. Highly inconsistent.

Yeah. He can recuse himself though if there's enough pressure. Only time I know that it's happened (could be more) is bountygate.

Ray Lewis got away with murder so....

Even when he recuses himself it makes no difference. he just gets one of his puppets to handle it like Troy Vincent.

People shouldn't be shocked by the suspension. This is the same league that gave Brady 4 games without any actual evidence.

It will be reduced by a game or two. No way the league won't let him run all over the niners.

Another nail in Goodell's cofin.

His contract expires in 2019. Look for him to "retire" then.

Nothing about this was "proven false." That you and other people keep repeating such blatantly wrong language is tragic.

Did the police have access to that video?

And you'd think that after winning Deflategate in court everyone would know the standard of evidence for NFL suspension is not an actual conviction (as if he were gonna get convicted in Columbus without an ironclad case) but that insipid phrase more probable than not.

Stephen a was initially apoplectic but changed his stance when he read the NFL statement. Basically said the cops were incompetent.

Who knows for sure unless we get more information. But it's not like the police force there had a year to investigate it like the NFL did. They don't have those resources to launch an investigation of that scale on a crime that is really tough to prove without a shadow of doubt in general.

You don't want to make an enemy out of me.

Speaking of worthless commentators, I'd love to hear more before I make any firm opinions on this matter. While I don't doubt Elliott is, at the very least, a king of *************, I also know this is the NFL we're talking about here. Their word is as solid as chocolate pudding.
