Something is up so Police said ain't no evidence because they have text messages the accuser said of telling her friends to lie but NFL says she is credible interesting....

I ain't no cowboy fan but this is pure PR move from the NFL six games have him appeal and get it dropped to 2 games because Zeke has been a pure dumbass this past yr and needs to start moving smarter.
Don't know if this is a great PR move by the NFL the police gave them an out  and  they could have suspended him 2 games for the ST patty day and the weed and car issues but making it clear about the domestic violence and saying he abused her that will follow him forever and as the star runningback on the biggest NFL team idk

Maybe the League is pissed that he keeps doing dumber shit, while the League keeps letting things slide. Dude, we keep giving you second chances and pretending this shit didn't happen, and you keep upping the anti.

Yeah he has been a pure dumbass like the ST Patty day one was so stupid i just didn't understand like he should be suspended two games just for being flagrantly idiotic for doing that with all the cameras around him and he is 22 so it ain't like he grew up in an era where you can getaway with stuff like that.

No chance it's dropped to any less than four. And maybe no less than five.

And this will be why the Cowboys don't make it out of the first round of the playoffs this year.

If he is suspended the whole 6 games...

Giants
@ Broncos
@ Cardinals
Rams
Packers
@ 49ers

I say they go 3-3 with losses to the Giants, Broncos, and Packers and they may even beat the Giants and go 4-2.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been granted a temporary restraining order by a Texas district court and will be able to play during the 2017 season, The MMQB's Albert Breer reports.
Elliott was suspended for six games due to a violation of the NFL's personal conduct policy.
As per the injunction, the NFL is not allowed to impose his suspension for the duration of the lawsuit, according to Daniel L. Wallach of Becker and Poliakoff.

FRISCO, Texas -- Federal judge Amos Mazzant on Friday granted a request by the NFL Players Association for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction to prevent the implementation of the six-game suspension for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.

Elliott was already eligible to play in Sunday's season opener against the New York Giants, but his suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy was set to begin Monday. With the injunction granted, Elliott will likely be able to continue playing as the legal process plays out.

If the request had been denied, Elliott would have appealed to the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to ask for an immediate stay.

On Tuesday, appeals officer Harold Henderson upheld the suspension handed down from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as Mazzant was hearing Elliott's request at the Paul Brown District Court in Sherman, Texas.

On Aug. 11, Goodell announced Elliott's six-game suspension after the league found that he inflicted physical harm on former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson in July 2016 in Columbus, Ohio. Elliott has denied the claims.

Columbus authorities did not pursue charges against Elliott, but the league's personal conduct policy has a lower burden of proof threshold than criminal convictions. Goodell worked with a four-person advisory committee to determine whether Elliott deserved to be punished. However, it was revealed during the appeal process that Kia Roberts, the NFL's lead investigator, had issues with Thompson's credibility and that she would not have recommended discipline for Elliott based on what she'd found.

"The question before the Court is merely whether Elliott received a fundamentally fair hearing before the arbitrator. The answer is he did not," Mazzant wrote in his ruling. "The Court finds, based upon the injunction standard, that Elliott was denied a fundamentally fair hearing by Henderson's refusal to allow Thompson and Goodell to testify at the arbitration hearing."

Mazzant also wrote that "the NFL's breach of the [collective bargaining agreement] is only compounded by Henderson's breach of the CBA. Specifically, Henderson denied access to certain procedural requirements, which were necessary to be able to present all relevant evidence at the hearing."

In his ruling, Mazzant noted that the court was not ruling on whether there was credible evidence that Elliott committed domestic abuse.

At the heart of the NFLPA's case is what it believes is a lack of "fundamental fairness," in the appeals process, noting Henderson was not an independent arbitrator and they were not allowed to question Thompson about the series of events two summers ago.

"Commissioner discipline will continue to be a distraction from our game for one reason: because NFL owners have refused to collectively bargain a fair and transparent process that exists in other sports," the NFLPA said in a statement on Friday. "This 'imposed' system remains problematic for players and the game, but as the honest and honorable testimony of a few NFL employees recently revealed, it also demonstrates the continued lack of integrity within their own League office."

The NFL stiffened penalties in domestic cases three years after the league was sharply criticized for its handling of the domestic case involving former Baltimore running back Ray Rice.

Elliott rushed for 1,631 yards as a rookie to help the Cowboys to the best record in the NFC at 13-3. He was a full practice participant throughout training camp but played in just one preseason game, same as a year ago when Elliott missed significant time at camp because of a hamstring injury.

Chris Andrews, an oddsmaker from The South Point, told ESPN's Ben Fawkes that the Cowboys' odds to win Super Bowl LII moved from 15-1 to 12-1 after the ruling was announced. The odds for the Cowboys winning the NFC title moved from 8-1 to 6-1, Andrews said.
