For violating the personal conduct policy.

How hard is it to go your entire life without getting charged with domestic violence?

When you hear a guy say, "I would never strike a woman," it's really just saying, "I'm meeting the bare minimum for not being a piece of human garbage."

You hear about it, seemingly, almost every week. How is it so prevalent in the NFL?

I see they've "downgraded" domestic violence to personal conduct violation.

Didn't Ray Rice lose his career for the same thing?

Rice was indicted by a grand jury and plead guilty to a lesser charge. He received a 2 game suspension. Shit hit the fan when video of the incident was leaked online.

Elliott was never formally charged with anything, yet received a 6 game suspension (tell me if that sounds familiar)

It's really no more prevalent in the NFL than in the public at large. The difference is 24/7 media hysterics.

NFL continuing to whore itself out to building an audience of women. Elliott was never charged by police, and there's evidence of his girlfriend asking a witness to lie to the police. Six games and untold millions of millions of future dollars lost. But hey, let's keep all the "Who has the craziest beard?!" and shirtless Gronk segments coming ESPN/NFL.

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."

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.

53 * 32 = 1664 players (not counting practice squad. If 0.5% of players commit domestic violence annually, that would be roughly 8 players. Not sure it is that prevalent...

Perhaps unpopular opinion, but it seems odd to me the extreme hatred for D/V over other crimes committed -- some of them which seem to my mind much worse.

I agree for the same reason you stated, but if I cared to look deeper into this it seems that the young man was never charged with anything, that the injuries were look at by an examiner and could not have been in the time frame she accused him of as they were at least a week older and the person that was with her, not him said she was a liar and was trying to get money. Again not making an argument for or against, but I do wonder if over -reaction in the media is unfair to both the accused and persons that are actually victims of domestic violence.
