Ezekiel Elliott Reportedly Likely to Appeal Suspension

Ezekiel Elliott Reportedly Likely to Appeal Suspension”

Ezekiel Elliott's appeal of his six-game suspension will focus on testimony given by the Dallas Cowboys star's former girlfriend to the National Football League, according to documents obtained by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Elliott's father, Stacy Elliott, tweeted out an itinerary of the points Elliott's legal team plans to outline and said his son is "ready to fight". "Let's deal! You will know the set up and POLT!" However, one of them could paint an even bigger picture of the key to Elliott's appeal. Police did not arrest or press charges against Elliott, thanks in large part to the testimony of four witnesses disputing the alleged victim's account. Elliott received the suspension stemming from domestic-violence allegations levied by former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson, who apparently threatened to "ruin his career", according to documents obtained by the Dallas Star-Telegram.

On Monday, Stacy Elliott provided some more details about how things will play out, now that the National Football League has suspended his son for six games. "They are not going to believe you", after she called the police on him.

The Columbus (Ohio) City Attorney's office announced in September that it would not pursue charges against Elliott because of "conflicting and inconsistent information", but the National Football League can penalize a player even without legal charges. In the call, Thompson said Elliott assaulted her in a parked auto.

"Even when a player is not charged with a crime, "'he may still be found to have violated the policy if the credible evidence establishes that he engaged in conduct prohibited by this Personal Conduct Policy, '" the statement reads.

Elliott now has until Wednesday to file his appeal which he will most certainly do.
