NFL has no comment on Ezekiel Elliott video

Getty Images

There’s a new video showing Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott pulling down a woman’s top during a St. Patrick’s Day parade. Given that Elliott remains under investigation for a separate potential violation of the Personal Conduct Policy, the incident could make that situation worse and/or subject him to other scrutiny.

For now, the NFL has no comment about the video.

It wouldn’t be the first time the NFL has no initial comment on a situation before eventually having something to say. Right out of the gates, the league often hasn’t decided on a course of action. Once it does, it often supplements “no comment” with comment.

Although plenty of Cowboys fans and some in the media are arguing that it’s a non-story, Elliott is the last NFL player who should be doing something like this, given the still-unresolved (by the league) domestic violence allegations from a year ago. And while St. Patrick’s Day parades and similar events (like Mardi Gras) routinely consist of women pulling their own tops down (or up), it’s slightly different to say the least when a man does the pulling for them.

Regardless of what fans or the media think, the NFL’s reaction to the video is all that will matter. And it’s hard to imagine the NFL shrugging and saying “boys will be boys” in response to Elliott’s behavior — especially in light of its reaction to the Justin Timberlake-Janet Jackson escapade from halftime of Super Bowl XXXVIII.

    Thanks Zeke!

    This guy…

  3. Della Street says: Mar 13, 2017 3:57 PM

    What a tool. Class act you are, Zeke.

  4. possumsauce says: Mar 13, 2017 3:57 PM

    Also especially in light of his boss Jerruah’s photos with those, ahem, “ladies” playing their avocation…

  5. beavertonsteve says: Mar 13, 2017 3:58 PM

    Regardless of the outcome, Elliott was one bad reaction away from being caught sexually assaulting a woman on video.

    That’s a career ender.

  6. 52crabcakes says: Mar 13, 2017 3:59 PM

    of course they don’t. He is a “golden child”.

  7. liontuss says: Mar 13, 2017 4:03 PM

    Reports confirm that same woman was in the Salvation Army kettle.

  8. joe400e says: Mar 13, 2017 4:04 PM

    Kind of odd that Goodell has nothing to say. Usually he has a fit when people even think about tarnishing the shield.

  9. emphraser says: Mar 13, 2017 4:06 PM

    Whereas ‘Boys fans have a storied history of trying to reduce this sort of thing to ‘boys being boys , ‘boys doing blow, ‘boys ostensibly being douches.

    They’re lead the way they follow.

    Shocking.

  10. bassplucker says: Mar 13, 2017 4:11 PM

    Leader.

  11. exodus316 says: Mar 13, 2017 4:13 PM

    Really making it hard for Jerry Jones to lean on Uncle Roger and make this all go away.

  12. ak185 says: Mar 13, 2017 4:15 PM

    I’m guessing you white knights didn’t see the second video in the TMZ article…

  13. lionsandvikingsandbearsohmy says: Mar 13, 2017 4:17 PM

    The Cowboys already have enough to worry about with their salary cap being completely screwed the next 8 years minimum. Just wait until they have to pay Prescott and Elliont. May as well just cut this troublemaker now..

  14. dmca12 says: Mar 13, 2017 4:18 PM

    Perhaps the offseason is the best defense against Zeke.

  15. j huber says: Mar 13, 2017 4:20 PM

    As usual the NFL is full of crap. They say the have a domestic abuse program, but just about everyone get a free pass. Greed is their main objective, back up by double speak, and double standards standards. Make him a great role model, so he can become rookie of year, and teach next generation to be psychological liars and abusers. No integrity!

  16. bannedfromchoirpractice says: Mar 13, 2017 4:27 PM

    When criminal sexual abuse is promoted and bragged about by the same person who is now the President of the United States, don’t be surprised when a low-life football player thinks it’s okay, too.

  17. elmerbrownelmerbrown says: Mar 13, 2017 4:29 PM

    It’s only skin !

  18. correctingerrors says: Mar 13, 2017 4:30 PM

    He tried to expose her a second time and she slapped his hand away. She then exposed to the crowd while EE desperately tried to get a view. She was freely showing the public, yet EE can’t control himself and comes across as a arrogant perv.

  19. sidepull says: Mar 13, 2017 4:31 PM

    Entitlement.

  20. annapterp says: Mar 13, 2017 4:31 PM

    Trying to create something from nothing. Move along now.

  21. mackcarrington says: Mar 13, 2017 4:31 PM

    Perhaps Roger didn’t see the video.
    Hey, Roger! It’s available over at TMZ!
    You’re welcome!

  22. ptm014100 says: Mar 13, 2017 4:42 PM

    are we holding nfl players to a higher standard than the POTUS now?

  23. citizenstrange says: Mar 13, 2017 4:44 PM

    But … but … but … we all wear pink in October! What more can we possibly do???

  24. chunga85 says: Mar 13, 2017 4:47 PM

    The video is on youtube and it looks like the girl was having fun showing off her muscles. No big deal, unless somebody from the Patriots did this.

  25. redsea1111 says: Mar 13, 2017 4:49 PM

    Reading the many comments in the initial article and a few in this one, I simply had no idea that guys thought it was acceptable – and even normal – behavior to pull girls’ tops down in public. Really. I had no idea!

  26. spreadems says: Mar 13, 2017 4:50 PM

    He was having a good time, and so was the lady he was with. She was cool with it all, stop making it bigger than it actually is.

    You people are so sensitive.

  27. styro1 says: Mar 13, 2017 4:53 PM

    1st Goodall needs to see how it plays out in the media and public opinion then he’ll issue a wishy washy comment about how there will be a full and complete investigation to the charges. Then in a year or so Elliot will get a $500 fine.

  28. steeelfann0155 says: Mar 13, 2017 4:53 PM

    Aside from not being surprised, hey “Zeke”, how are you going to feel when some young “cool guy” does that to your daughter in front of everyone? Can’t wait.

  29. steeelfann0155 says: Mar 13, 2017 4:55 PM

    But yet the NFL speaks to states about their gender bathroom issues.

  30. trainwrecksryan says: Mar 13, 2017 5:03 PM

    The Pats are gonna lose a draft pick for this, somehow.

  31. primemundo says: Mar 13, 2017 5:10 PM

    He was trying to get her leftover Mardi Gras beads or he was trying to see was at proper psi. 🙂

  32. joetoronto says: Mar 13, 2017 5:12 PM

    Yet another Cowboy leader!

  33. linemanguy74 says: Mar 13, 2017 5:35 PM

    Next time he jumps into the kettle put the lid on it !!! and lock it

  34. emmeftrom says: Mar 13, 2017 5:42 PM

    Not surprising. Just another athlete who thinks he is above the law. And since Jerry Jones owns Roger, the NFL will continue to “investigate” until Elliott retires. Gee, I wonder if Roger would drag this out if this was a New England Patriot star!! GROW A PAIR ROGER!!

  35. ricko1112 says: Mar 13, 2017 5:53 PM

    What can Goodell say? He tried to hide what Ray Rice did by lying about not seeing the video. Then he conspired with Mara to suspend Josh Brown just a single game instead of the mandatory 6. We now know Mara and Goodell knew all about Josh Brown.

  36. tajuara says: Mar 13, 2017 5:58 PM

    Did Blandino film the video? Maybe Dean, Zeke, and Jerrah were together at the parade.

  37. gurnblanstonreturns says: Mar 13, 2017 5:58 PM

    It’s just a matter of time with this guy.

  38. redlikethepig says: Mar 13, 2017 5:59 PM

    Ladies, he’s single.

  39. tajuara says: Mar 13, 2017 6:00 PM

    This is the NFL guys, players, like politicians and rich people, are above the law. Everyone else, well suck to be us…

  40. GenXJ says: Mar 13, 2017 6:01 PM

    Oh no. Wait ’til Gronk hears about this.

  41. youknowiknowitall says: Mar 13, 2017 6:35 PM

    IF it is NE = Full scale, multi-million dollar inconclusive investigation ending in over-the-top penalties based on NFL HQ lies.

    it IS DAL = No comment from the NFL.

    NFL HQ’s “integrity” at it’s finest.

  42. charger383 says: Mar 13, 2017 6:40 PM

    Bet she could make Dallas Cheerleaders now

  43. rhd366 says: Mar 13, 2017 7:25 PM

    Pervert!!!!!

  44. tylawspick6 says: Mar 13, 2017 7:45 PM

    if this was gronk doing this, there would be a
    1st rd pick stolen

  45. officialgame says: Mar 13, 2017 8:17 PM

    No problem, Jerry asked to make a video for his home collection.

  46. thegreatgabbert says: Mar 13, 2017 8:25 PM

    They’ve watched it dozens of times, but haven’t come to a conclusion as yet.

  47. clayjtitan66 says: Mar 13, 2017 10:15 PM

    A sad day for all Ewoks.

  48. bigbluefan1 says: Mar 13, 2017 11:29 PM

    Cowboys stay classless

  49. whispersd says: Mar 14, 2017 1:01 AM

    Based on Goodell’s lack of interest in Greg Hardy’s shenanigans, I wouldn’t count on anything from his office anytime soon on this matter.

  50. 1phillyphan says: Mar 14, 2017 2:48 AM

    Roger is going to find Jerry Jones 1 million, take a 1rst and 4th draft pick and suspend him 4 games…Oops, sorry He plays in Dallas not New England..No fine. He will be told to not do again.

  51. ltapltap says: Mar 14, 2017 12:07 PM

    Just look at Zeke’s face. The expression says it all. It’s completely devoid of any understanding. The same guy who is under investigation for sexual assault thinks its just fine to pull a woman’s top down in public. It’s hard to understand that level of stupidity and completely lack of self awareness.

  52. realitylooms says: Mar 14, 2017 12:34 PM

    Goodell is going to come down hard and protect the shield and………oh, the cowboys and Jerryworld? The NFL will shove this under the rug and Goodell will just act like this is fake news. In Jerryworld, a player can rape and murder a nun and nothing will happen. If Zeke was in New England, he would be suspended for the year.
