Why has The NFL drawn out an investigation that is over a year old?
We know that in the past, when dealing with players domestic violence violations, the NFL has had some questionable inconsistencies. We also know that violation of the NFL Domestic policy is grounds for a minimum six game suspension. Two players by the names of Jermaine Cunningham and Rodney Austin are the only two players in the history of the league to ever be suspended for the NFL minimum six games. In the past the NFL has suffered great public embarrassment after not following through with the minimum six game suspension for players such as DE Greg Hardy, and Giants kicker Josh Brown.
Coming off an exceptional rookie campaign, Dallas Cowboys Running Back Ezekial Elliott finds himself in a year long investigation with the NFL over his alleged domestic incident with a woman named Tiffany Thompson while living in Columbus Ohio during his college career. Although the City Attorney’s office did not press charges, and the police report states an eye witness stated they did not see an assault, the NFL is still trying to investigate Elliott. For what? Is it the misfortune of being a high profile player on a high profile team? Is the NFL trying to make Ezekiel out of an example to make up from the other inconsistencies from the previous domestic cases?
No one knows for sure exactly what went on between Tiffany Thompson and Ezekiel Elliott, but the fact that the Ohio DA couldn’t find the evidence needed to prosecute, and there is an eye witness stating no alleged assault took place, then why must the NFL use this case to try to save face from their other mismanaged domestic cases. One must wonder why?
