Good news Cowboy fans, Ezekiel Elliott will avoid suspension until his case is heard in court. This means Ezekiel Elliott will probably be able to play the entire season unless by some minor miracle the US court system does something quickly for the first time ever. Essentially, this is what Tom Brady did when he was suspended for deflating footballs back in 2015. It allowed him to play all of the 2015 season, however he still ended up having to serve his suspension the following year. All Ezekiel Elliott is doing is postponing the inevitable. I guess this is the right course of action, especially if he's actually innocent, but judging by what happened last time, Elliott won't get off scotch free.
The Cowboys must be going for it this year if they don't want to lose Zeke this badly. I mean Dak and Zeke are going to be better players next year, barring any collapse in talent, so why not just take it on the chin now, and next year when both players are a little more experienced and ready for a championship run have the whole band together. Instead, Elliott will miss 6 games next season, effecting the chances of the Cowboys making the playoffs drastically. I guess it's not really the Cowboys decision, it's the NFLPA's and Elliott's, however I'm sure Jerry Jones could've made things happen if he wanted to. What am I saying, Jerry Jones believes the Cowboys are going to win the Super Bowl every year, so he definitley wants Elliott to play this year despite the fact he'll just end up having to serve the suspension next year. Jerry wants another ring ASAP, in his head he thinks that's happening this year, I guess clueless to the fact that he has no defense.
I don't know if Zeke is actually guilty or not, no one really does, besides him and the female involved, obviously. The thing I don't get is why we have the commissioner make these rulings, which he was given full power to do so by the players when they agreed to the CBA, if the players can just bring it to court every time, and drag the whole thing out for months if not years. Honestly, it's total bullshit in my opinion, the US court system shouldn't even waste their time hearing these cases. Nonsense that they have to, but that's the nature of the situation. I'm glad Zeke is playing because now I won't hear the excuses that Zeke missed games and that's why the Cowboys didn't win the division. You're lucky Cowboy fans, Zeke is free for now, that still isn't going to save you from the can of whoop-ass the Giants are going to unleash on you Sunday night.
