Cowboys' Elliott officially submits appeal to six-game suspension

17 August 2017

Ezekiel Elliott just can't seem to get out of his own way nowadays - a complete 180-degree reversal of fortune from his recent celebrated gridiron feats.

As expected, #dallas cowboys running back #Ezekiel Elliott submitted his appeal to the six-game suspension that the #NFL slapped on him for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

An hour later, the league released a statement accusing the NFLPA of a smear campaign over the incident.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, this appeal's focal point will revolve around a testimony given by his former girlfriend to the NFL. After a year's work of examining the matter the league slapped him with the suspension saying it has viewed digital and photo evidence to support Thompson's claims that Elliott "engaged in physical violence against Ms. Thompson on multiple occasions". In its statement, the N.F.L., which has been loudly criticized in recent years of not understanding the needs of the victims in domestic violence cases, called the tactic "shameful".

Last Friday the National Football League suspended Elliott - a consensus all-pro running back last season with the Dallas Cowboys - for the first six games of the coming regular season, without pay. He has arbitrated player appeals since 2008.

The Columbus City Attorney's Office announced in September it would not press charges against Elliott in this case because of "conflicting and inconsistent information".

"A long-time NFL Executive and current legal consultant can not, by definition, be a neutral arbitrator", the union said in a statement released to PFT three years ago, in connection with the decision to appoint Henderson to handle Adrian Peterson's Personal Conduct Policy appeal.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said Elliott's legal team will show that the NFL finding did not give weight to Thompson's credibility while considering its decision.

The NFL Players Association made the announcement on Tuesday, and ESPN has reported that the hearing will be held before NFL commissioner Roger Goodell or a person designated by him on August 29.

After being told she couldn't come Elliott's 21st birthday party, Thompson told him "that's worst decision you made in your life". The running back has denied the accusation. "They should be ashamed for stooping to new lows".

"I'm best going to comment on this thing when I have all of our thoughts and plans in place", Jones said.

The NFL launched its own investigation and concluded that Elliott was at fault.
