Zeke’s dad is “ready for the show down”

With the league office apparently leaking to Cris Carter inflammatory details about the looming suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, the father of Ezekiel Elliott has chimed in.

Apparently.

In a tweet posted to his unverified Twitter account, Stacy Elliott seems to confirm that something is coming — and that whatever it is will be followed by some sort of a fight. Here’s the tweet.

It’s unclear whether Stacy Elliott is referring to a “show down” with the league or with Elliott’s accuser or both. Regardless, there’s a prevailing thought that something is coming soon regarding Ezekiel Elliott. If he’s suspended, he’ll have appeal rights — and he could try to block the implementation of a suspension through the courts.

Elliott likely will have a vocal ally in owner Jerry Jones, who has made it clear that he won’t be happy if/when Elliott is suspended. However it goes, chances are it will be going down very soon.

  1. The Fuhrer’s lies and plots, schemes with the other Owners, etc., don’t fail. Get ready for the suspension.

  2. Uh oh, the multibillion dollar NFL machine vs. a guy’s dad on twitter. WONDER HOW THIS WILL SHAKE OUT?

  3. Anyone who has been paying attention to the NFL knows that it matters less to the league what Elliott did than how fully he confessed and cooperated with them in their investigation. If you look like you’re possibly hiding something they’ll bring the hammer down. It isn’t right but it’s the rules as they currently stand. The league can punish a player at will; federal court has said so.

  4. I hope Jones and Elliott sue the NFL (and not back down) if a suspension is issued. I’m tired of the NFL playing police/judge/jury, especially after the legal system has taken its course. They need to go back to issuing suspensions after being found guilty in a court of law.

  5. If Tom Brady got railroaded by Goodell and his cronies… everyone will get railroaded by Goodell and his cronies.

    Goodell has modified the tag line Drew Carey used on Whose Line is it Anyway… The place where everything’s made up and the facts don’t matter.

    Problem is the players union granted them this power, so there is not much you can do about it now….

  7. A short suspension is what this guy needs since he needs a wake up call before he does something really…really stupid. 2-4 games fine, but anything more than that they should appeal for a reduced suspension.

  8. Yes Elliot is pretty sleazy just based on what he’s known to have done in public, and yes Jones makes your skin crawl every time he opens that crooked little mouth. BUT nobody and I mean nobody is as corrupt and sleazy as Goodell and his stooges.

  9. If I were Zeke I wouldn’t go after the NFL, I’d do my time.

    I’d ruin the lying woman in court though by suing for the last wages. No way she can cover that cost, so ruin her financially since that was her intention by lying in the first place.

  10. “The league can punish a player at will; federal court has said so.”

    Because … for the 100th time … it’s a workplace issue, NOT a civil rights one. Zeke is an employee who is violating company policy. The NFL … like GE or GM … can take steps to enforce their rules. We’re not in criminal or civil court.

  11. .
    I know none of the facts of this case. However, the leaking of information about the situation to test the waters is just plain weak.

    Watch out Dallas,John Mara has your number.
    .

  12. Guess he should have settled with the accuser. The damage to his image is expensive. Not to mention the game checks, and future microscope the NFL will have on him.

  13. For cripes sake, the union and players agreed to this process. In other words, the Gestapo, fortunately or unfortunately, has every right to discipline it’s enlisted men.

  14. All the teams except the Steelers ratified this CBA that gives the Commissioner autocratic powers. In a couple of years, the players get another chance. It will be interesting then to see how it goes. In the meantime, does anyone really think Tom Brady sat for 4 games for doing what he did, and then this guy should just walk?

  15. Since when do grown men’s fathers have any say in anything. It was bad enough when the Great Gimmick with the Redskins had his daddy in tow like a five year old. It is time that men act like men and stop having their daddies fighting their battle.

    The more I read about this the more disgusting I find the Bearded Woman Abuser.

    I think daddy dearest should have taught his manchild to keep his hands off women.

  16. What everyone fails to recognize is that the NFL and the players have a collective bargaining agreement. Within the confines of the agreement, the NFL has latitude to be police, judge and jury of the players. (They don’t need no stinkin badges) The players agreed to this…. So I have no sympathy for the suspensions that come down that the players and fans don’t agree with. Every time they go to the bargaining table they could fight for a system that they deem more fair. The problem is every time they sit down what they care about is how many more dollars they can put in their pockets. I don’t condemn them for that, I would do the same, but I am savvy enough to understand that they are at fault for ceding all the power to the commish. So the players, fans, owners can run around in circles all they want complaining about how arbitrary the system is… At the end of the day he will be suspended, he will appeal (by the way who fields the appeal?), the appeal will be denied and he will sit out however many games the Commish says he will.

    BTW I know who ultimately gets the appeal (wink)
