On Friday, August 11, 2017, Dallas Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended for 6 games of the regular season by the NFL for allegedly abusing his girlfriend on multiple occasions.

To no one’s surprise, Elliott is making plans to appeal the ruling. Here’s his response:

“Mr. Elliott and his team of representatives are extremely disappointed with the NFL’s decision,” the Dallas Cowboys star’s camp said in a statement.

“The NFL’s findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions and it ‘cherry picks’ so called evidence to support its conclusion while ignoring other critical evidence.”

“For example, both the Columbus Prosecutor’s office as well as the NFL investigators expressly concluded and conveyed to our office (and others) that the accuser was lying about an alleged July 22, 2016 incident whereby she accused Mr. Elliott of pulling her out of her car and assaulting her. An allegation that was ultimately undermined by her false allegation of assault.”

“In addition, the NFL’s own medical experts concluded that many of her injuries predated the week in question and likely occurred during a period of time when Mr. Elliott was not in contact with the accuser.”

“During the upcoming weeks and through the appeal, a slew of additional credible and controverting evidence will come to light.”

    The prosecutor in this case ruled that this woman fabricated her story of assault. In other words, she lied. This man is being railroaded

    If it is true the Zeke did what he say he did. That my friends is not a good thing. Violence against women for no reason whatsoever even for Twitter reason there’s no need to Resort to the type of stupidity. One would think that after the highly publicized cases were NFL players have been thrown out of the NFL that these guys equipped and start behaving by professionals. This is a case where this man if it is true what they say he did that he has no self-control and requires anger management when dealing with women

      sorry for my typos it all comes from my voice typing that’s not doing a very good job for me. Getting back to our brother Zeke with all that Talent to face expulsion from the NFL and worse yet end up in jail they cuz he doesn’t understand how to control his emotions. A big dog walking on the streets doesn’t bark back every time she Wawa’s by Black Box on it and the same case should apply to Zeke he’s a big dog walking on the street just keep walking go away stay away from trouble and you’ll be fine

    If the legal authorities investigated and exonerated Ezekiel Elliott, what gives the NFL the right to overrule that decision
