Whether The NFL Had Definitive Proof Or Not, Ezekiel Elliott Did Everything Possible To Earn His Six Game Suspension
Look, I don't know if Ezekiel Elliott is actually guilty of domestic abuse. If you ask local law enforcement then he was wrongfully accused, but you ask the always trustworthy Commissioner's office of the league that acts as it's own judge, jury, and executioner then he literally rules his relationships with an iron fist that would make Ray Rice cower in fear.
Whatever the case may be, Ezekiel Elliott has earned a lengthy, unpaid vacation from professional football. I have my doubts that the NFL somehow has conclusive evidence that even those that are sworn to serve and protect weren't privy to. However, the person who is seemingly always under investigation has repeatedly given them the only thing they have ever needed to exact punishments...skepticism. By the law of the land of the free, a six game suspension for a crime that never got a conviction most definitely can't be considered justice, but the NFL has long made it clear that they only go to the Constitution when they run out of toilet paper.
Therefore, Ezekiel Elliott has no one to blame but the high profile running back that couldn't go more than a few weeks at a time without making himself the subject of another new controversy. When your career has come under scrutiny from the person whose gavel has been known to get slammed on a whim, then maybe it's best not to startpulling out titties without asking and knocking out DJ's because they skipped your favorite song. The way I see it, Ezekiel Elliott was basically taunting Roger Goodell by refusing to stay out of trouble, and you simply don't test a superiority complex that strong without being given a six game slap on the wrist for something that - if true - should land you behind bars. I don't know whether this particular professional athlete put his hands on a woman, but I do know that he did his best to check off every frowned upon box on the NFL's 'Personal Conduct Policy' before getting sent to a month and a half long timeout for it.
I suppose Jerry Jones has every right to vehemently disagree...with the power structure that was put in place for his benefit...
