The hypocrisy league.
Remember when the NFL fined Deebo for his hit on the Cleveland receiver then they were selling pictures of such on their website?


Also this. I remember that and the discussion on Sirius radio one of the hosts (Can't remember which one) was saying how he questioned how in the world the league could fine Harrison when the WR ran right into blatantly misreading the coverage. Fault was solely on the WR, and he asks what the heck was James supposed to do stand there and watch him and go hey you read the wrong coverage and not hit him?

Wait.

He wasn't formally charged? Haven't followed the story.

But I read the NFL investigated it for a while before rendering a decision, which usually means there is "something" there that isn't going to sell well.

Never. Police made the announcement nearly a year ago:

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/17480592/ezekiel-elliott-dallas-cowboys-face-charges-alleged-domestic-incident
"The Columbus (Ohio) City Attorney's Office announced it has declined to pursue charges against Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott in an alleged domestic violence incident from July involving a former girlfriend.

The office said it declined to pursue charges because of "conflicting and inconsistent information." It also said Elliott was cooperative in the investigation and offered up affidavits and photographs to support his case."

That's been a fun inside joke on this board for a few years. Please stop beating it to death.


Oh??? I had no idea. So sorry.

Something fishy going on....
https://deadspin.com/report-ezekiel-ell ... 1797752285
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.

Total BS to be suspended by the league for this when you weren't even arrested. And when the DA doesn't arrest in cases of violence against women, much less indict, then compelling evidence was probably extremely lacking.

It looks to me like like it's really the above two incidents (or in addition), and the league is just saying it was the domestic violence (most likely to avoid some gray areas and precedent issues).

It's biblical. I'm sure Ron would approve.
