I think they just need to just let the kid finish the season as I mean hes played half of it already and then just handle this bs off season and if it comes to suspension just get it done next year. Because this on and off again makes me feel like Daniel son. Elliot on, elliot off, elliot on, elliot off

Rooting for Zeke like crazy in recent months for the sake of my fantasy team, and now rooting against him. Really need him for weeks 15-16. If he gets to play week 9, I may not even make it through week 15 since my RBs other than Zeke suck.

You contrasted it with things like rape and said he’s only getting suspended 6 games as if a 6 game suspension isn’t a big deal or indicating that what he’s accused of isn’t a big deal. 

 

I agree that impact on HoF is going too far. It’s only one of the many things I listed. 

 

No s--- stats are quantifiable. But they aren’t monetarily quantifiable. He can’t be repaid the stats (either in actual stats or monetarily) should it be determined after he serves his suspension that the suspension was actually incorrectly handed out. 

 

Brand value - how are you going to determine how many endorsements he misses out on as a result of the suspension (not just endorsements he loses now, but how many don’t endorse him throughout the remainder of his career)?

 

you miss the context, because i was specifically addressing someone's mention of molestation.

 

yes it is monetarily quantifiable.  if by some stroke of luck he actually wins the appeal, they will be going for his back pay, as far as i know he isn't getting paid by the yard or by the carry.  as for his next contract, it won't be his performance on the field that keeps him from getting top dollar, it will be the fact  that he gets himself into these situations.  not that he was suspended and missed 6 games but that he makes bad decisions and puts himself in jeapordy.  but even that may not be the case because he is such an elite talent.  and as far as just damages go, a lawyer can easily make the argument that here is the amount of money he lost out on, but simply extrapolating this season, projected stats, past performance and come up with a number. 

 

brand value - i don't know how the lawyers are going to do it, but i'm sure they have their formulas to come up with a number.

I'm finally at peace with him being out 6 games and coming back for playoffs. (FWIW: 6-2 with Kamara, Hunt, Woodhead, yadda, yadda, yadda at RB)

I just want him to do the 6 and bring some resolution. It's selfish.

Zeke, I'm guessing, would rather fight to defend his rep and I can't blame him for that.

BTW, Papa John pulled advertising and blamed "bad leadership" on conference call with NFL. Repeatedly stressed importance of leadership and clearly implied Roger was the reason (specifically his handling of the kneeling situation). Roger looks likely to get canned

Never realized Papa was the one pulling all the NFL’s strings. Guess you learn something new every day. :lol:

BIG sponsor.

How many commercials do you see every game? Like 20?

And apparently they have deals with 23/32 teams

Not just the NFL either - a lot of MLB teams have deals where if the team wins a game, you get 50% off any regular menu items the next day. They're huge in the sports world.

 

They're also terrible as far as pizza is concerned.

Wouldnt be bad to serve a week suspension before a reinstatement, atleast ud get a sneak peak if its team alf or team dmc with no zeke, or team smith too, or team all

 

As a Chiefs fan, I would be fine with this.

I'm 7-1 and recently traded some depth for Zeke to load up for the playoff run.

 

Didn't take much either honestly - low risk move for those who are shoe-ins for the playoff hunt/bye week.

Waiting for the "final" ruling before I make any moves like that.

Their pizza is a disgusting sloppy mess just like their owner.

 

Really hope that Zeke doesn't play just one more week, if his 1st week back is week 16 he won't help much unless you get to the championship/semis without him.

Kinda pissing me off that he can possibly miss the fantasy playoffs after possibly taking my team there but i’ll take the 20 points... 
Ezekiel Elliott is back for this week. 2nd Cir just granted request for administrative stay.
