Now they are saying he might play due to the appeal? Confusing situation.

I refer you to the original meme...

Wished Benson had been younger and more full of piss and vinegar when the Saints Bounty Beatdown went down and we'd fought that thing harder as an organization...

I don't blame Goddell or the NFL offices for it.
Honestly i think Benson was told he was taking ine for the team with the head trauma so much on the agenda.

Wrong time for the tapes of Williams to get public and a chance for the owners to get the league to make a stand

It's amazing, we bring the house down on Brady for under/over inflated footballs...

Guy beats and/or terrorizes a girlfriend and he has the best of the best in legal aid...

And somehow he still gets to play irregardless because he's a running back for Big D...

And the NFL and NFLPA doesn't get why people are losing interests and boycotting the game...

Re: Ezekiel Elliot Suspension Reinstated, again...

Its difficult imo

There needs to be a much quicker process.
On one hand i have no issue with suspending Elliot. But innocent until proven guilty needs to be remembered.

On the other hand I'd likely be suspended until i cleared myself.

In other words i dont know.
Just suspend the Falcons instead

Well, here's the thing, in a court of law he skated because of technicalities; but the NFL was able to see all the evidence including the threatening texts Elliot sent if the victim pressed the issue...

So, by NFL standards and with NFL punishment he was suspended...

Personally, if I were the Commissioner, I'd find a legal way to make the evidence against Elliot public and let that take him down...

Re: Ezekiel Elliot Suspension Reinstated, again...

I fully agree
But its also a dangerous position if the NFL/NBA whatever can act as a higher authority to the law.

It just shows the sad case that a rich man can often find a technical way of getting away with things.

The next CBA is going to be bad. The players better be stashing their money as thevlockout maybe lengthy. Though the players always cave cause most are stuoid with the money
