Former NBA Star Trashes NFL Over Ezekiel Elliott Suspension

Rush Adding to the Cowboys Backup Quarterback Debate

It was rumoured in recent weeks that Elliott could receive a short suspension prior to the start of the season, after allegations he assaulted a former girfriend. Accordingly, we are fully aware of the full body of evidence that exists in connection with this matter. The NFL looked into the case, but couldn't come to any conclusions.

Ezekiel Elliott posted a statement Friday evening in which he apologized for causing "distraction and disruption". Elliott will forfeit $559,192 in 2017 salary, according to salary cap website Spotrac.

National Football League officials said in a statement Friday that it investigated Elliott's case thoroughly and determined that he violated the personal conduct policy. Sources have described him as "upset" about commissioner Roger Goodell's decision to suspend Elliott. The decision came after the National Football League investigated a series of alleged domestic violence involving Elliott.

Since then, Elliott has been recorded pulling a woman's shirt down at a St. Patrick's Day Parade and been involved in an incident at a bar that left a man hospitalized. The league also consulted with medical experts.

Americans are drinking a lot - and it's scaring researchers
The authors of the study also said these increases go unnoticed because of other damaging substances. In 2010, excessive drinking cost the USA nearly $250 billion, largely due to health costs.

In a letter to Elliott informing him of the league's decision, NFL special counsel for conduct Todd Jones said advisers brought in by the league "were of the view that there is substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that (Elliott) engaged in physical violence against Ms. Thompson on multiple occasions during the week of July 16, 2016".

Schefter also reported Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is "furious" with the ruling.

"I have reviewed everything, and there is absolutely nothing - not one thing - that had anything to do with domestic violence", Jones said during the team's training camp. In his rookie season, Elliott rushed for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns.
