Ezekiel Elliott Suspended By NFL
Welp. We suspected it was coming, but now it’s official.
The Dallas Cowboys have suspended Ezekiel Elliott for six games for violating its personal conduct policy.
Via the Washington Post:
The NFL had been investigating Elliott for more than a year, with league officials looking into an “accumulation of behaviors” involving Elliott, who led the NFL in rushing yards and attempts during his rookie season in 2016. Elliott’s ex-girlfriend accused him of five incidents of domestic violence over a six-day period in July 2016, though prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, declined to press charges because of “conflicting and inconsistent information” from witnesses. The woman, Tiffany Thompson, also had accused Elliott of pushing her against a wall during a February 2016 incident in Florida. No charges were brought in that case, as well.
Then, in March, Elliott was filmed pulling down a woman’s shirt, exposing one of her breasts, while watching a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dallas. And in July, he was involved in an altercation at a Dallas nightclub during which a DJ’s nose was broken. Dallas police eventually suspended the investigation after they were unable to locate the victim.
Do you agree with this decision?
