NFL report shows Tiffany Thompson suggested blackmailing Elliott over sex videos

Getty Images

The NFL won’t be releasing the 160-page investigative report generated in the Ezekiel Elliott case. And maybe we’re starting to see why.

Via Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, the report contains a text-message exchange in which Thompson discusses with a friend the idea of selling sex tapes of herself and Elliott. At one point, the friend says, “[W]e could blackmail him w[ith] that.”

Says Thompson in response: “I want to bro.”

Thompson also admitted to registering an email address with the title “ezekielelliot sex vids.”

Here’s the full text exchange, from the NFL’s report as obtained by Robinson:

[Thompson]: What if I sold mine and Ezekiel’s sex videos

[Friend]: We’d all be millionaires

[Friend]: We could black mail him w that

[Thompson]: I want to bro

[Friend]: Let’s do it

[Thompson]: Scared

[Friend]: Sh-t

[Friend]: Id be like look give me 10k or I’ll just sell our sex videos for the same amount flat

[Friend]: Me and my friends tryna go on vacation and get boob jobs . . . .

[Thompson]: 10k Bitch I want 20k

[Thompson]: Go big or go home

[Friend]: That’s fine too

None of this means that Elliott didn’t commit domestic violence. But these kinds of schemes go directly to Thompson’s credibility. As PFT previously has explained, Commissioner Roger Goodell met in person with neither Elliott nor Thompson to assess their credibility before deciding that Elliott was guilty as charged.

  1. She’s probably a very bad person. But Zeke still hit her. And that’s why he’s getting suspended. This changes nothing …

  2. Amazing so did he do wrong or not? Obviously she is shady so now who knows

    Could the NFL fk up another investigation? Really is amazing who knows until all details come out

  3. I don’t get the meeting in person importance. Goodell isn’t a lawyer, not an expert at reading people to see if they are lying. That’s why he hired people to do that for him. I’m guessing he will hear the appeal and meet with Elliott then.

  4. Goodell is finished. I don’t know how he escapes this time. I really don’t.

    His own employee is a victim and he instead suspends the guy for 6 games for being a victim of a blackmail scheme.

    Wow.

    I would sue immediately.

  5. all of this evidence that the accuser is a P.O.S. is one thing but at the end of the day do any of us know if he did hit her? No.

  6. convicted on conjecture without ever meeting the judge for the sake of public relations. I’m not saying he didn’t do it, I am saying it is unfair the manner in which he has been globally branded a woman beater. #Murrica

  7. An early story said she had been in a bar fight (I think it was with another female)resulting in the bruises. Wanna bet that is about to come out? If Elliott’s people have video of the bar fight, this becomes another NFL debacle. This screams for an independent arbitrator.

  8. Wow, so a private business tries to impart justice and struggles doing so?

    Who the heck could ever see this coming???

  9. Yeah if a guy beat you up for 3 out of 4 days you would probably want some revenge too. She talked about it yeah, but she didn’t do it. I mean if we all were convicted for bad thoughts we all would be inmates. A lot of self righteousness towards a beaten woman in here.

  10. The smear campaign going on against this fine young woman is very disturbing. Zeke, please stop hitting women.

  11. Don’t forget the NFL’s many lies, leaks and contortions in bountygate and deflategate. The worst was their baselessly refusing to accept the testimony of referee Walt Anderson on just one of his statements – crucially which gauge he used – but accepted all his other statements. They then faked a photo of the two gauges (removed a sticker from one and hid the much longer, bent needle of the other) in their report so as to make the gauges look similar and make it more plausible that Walt was mistaken. That is what Jerrah was hoot-&-a-half happy about then and what he is up against now.

  12. If “credibility” and “we believe her over you” was the NFL’s primary reason for the suspension…then the NFL needs to reevaluate their investigation process if this story is true. So far in less than a week of the suspension I’ve heard nothing about this woman that is synonymous with CREDIBLE. And the NFL had a full year? Not saying he did or didn’t hit her, but her credibility should be highly questioned as “evidence”!

  13. “It’s not “guilty as charged”… HE WAS NEVER CHARGED!!!!”

    Because it’s a workplace issue … not a criminal or civil one.

  14. I have no clue if he did or didn’t do this. but right now he is branded a women beater. Every show i see says he needs to apologize for what he did but what if he didn’t do this? Remember what happened with Duke lacrosse players. Something does seem off with this case too? I am still not ready to say he is innocent but I am also not any closer to saying he did. There are way to many things that are off right now.

    Listen to yourself.

  16. What a fine upstanding young female….NOT…This war is just beginning!! I’ve got my popcorn ready!!!!! Hell hath no fury like a HOF Jerry Jones scorned 🙂

  17. In the findings released by the Colombus DA staying why he wasn’t charged is the line that reads: Miss Thompson was in a physical altercation with another female a few days prior to the incident with Mr Elliott. It is believed this is where the bruising occured.

    I would like to see Goodell’s credentials in forensics that make him so much smarter than people that do it for a living. He needs to stop playing detective and go back to ruining the game we love

  18. This drama is not done. That 140 pages includes lots of “surprises” I’d bet. Zeke and his father would be wise to stop trashing this lady. The NFL did not take a year to penalize him for a he said she said BS.

  19. Given that the only fact supporting the “he hit her” line is apparently no more than her word that he did so, and given that her credibility is at just about zero right now, it’s a bit surprising that so many people still are so sure he did it.

    Yeah, there’s a picture of her bruises, and that was real – but at this point does anyone not think it just as possible that she had someone else inflict those on her to accuse and extort him?

    Evidence, please.

    Full disclosure: I can’t stand the Cowboys.

  20. See, the problem is this comes down to a he said, she said, situation and in that case credibility matters, ALOT. Unless the NFL has video of him hitting her this text message exchange would make me doubt her story.

  21. Derek Wolfe knocked someone unconscious in a bar where it’s on video and nothing happened.

    Zeke Elliott gets blackmailed and he gets suspended for it. LOL

  22. Now you know why it took a year to investigate.

    How many more little additional tidbits will leak out?

    So far she is a “jilted lover”, liar, and stalker…

    I wouldn’t believe a word she said. She has NO credibility.

    Roger has ruined the NFL.

    This will only get worse…

  23. It will be reduced to 4 games and Elliot could still get paid for those 4 games if they put him on the exempt list like they did with AP.
    I hope Elliot learns a few lessons from this, like:
    1) If a gal starts beating on you, RUN AWAY, and don’t “defend” yourself unless it’s really life threatening as you’ll just look like the bad guy!
    2) Screen your gfs better. Yes, crazy in the head = crazy in bed but it’s just not worth it when you have so much to lose. Choose a woman who has career goals unrelated to landing a star football player.
    3) When your agent says “Lay low until the NFL makes a decision”, STAY HOME! Train, work out, and maybe go to a low key tropical island somewhere where nobody knows you, but definitely stay away from nightclubs!

  24. The NFL has to get out of Public Relations Morality Game. It’s way more trouble than its worth. The pseudo-legal Law & Order style trial-by-media.

    Core fans who actually watch football are sick of this SJW crap.

  25. At the very least this casts a reasonable doubt. too bad for Zeke he is being judged by the public and the NFL and not a court of law. My take the NFL is punishing him not because they believe he assaulted Thompson but because they are afraid of bad publicity.

  26. The next CBA negotiations are going to be a DOOZY over arbitrary power, suspensions, and the usefulness of Goofball Roger. Can not WAIT for September 7th at One Pateiot Place Foxborough MA.

    ALL TEAMS deserve fairness. That idiot has botched more Investigations than I have fantasy teams.

    You need to start realizing that these are not “investigations”. They’re strategic framejobs to cheat, authorized and administered by the commissioner of the NFL.

    Pats fans have been trying to explain this for 10 years now.

    If John Mara or other owners want something done to cheat, they get it done.

    Note how the Pats have been cheated when it appears like there is no stopping them. But, when they were rebuilding on the fly from 2009-2012, no one cared about trying to cheat them because they weren’t the juggernaut they were or are now.

    Unfortunately the same sheep who bought bountygate, capgate, bullygate and deflategate don’t have the reading comprehension to understand that or care that that was the case. All they see is he was initially arrested for DV and doesn’t matter that he wasn’t charged.

    Don’t forget the lies and leaks about Spygate, too. People have bad or short memories. I knew something smelled in Sept of 2007, and it’s only been proven to be true for the following 10 years.

    The Pats have never cheated.

    Fact.

  31. True, none of it means whether or not domestic violence occurred, but how in the world could the NFL investigators believe what she was saying ? It’s pretty clear that she was out to get Elliott. Yet, they believed her more than Elliott, on what justification, a lie detector test ? It seems to paint the narrative that the NFL was out to make Zeke an example for all its previous mishandling of domestic violence cases because it’s just hard to gloss over this. The NFL really needs to explain why they felt her credibility was taken into account more than Zeke’s. Don’t want to hear about when the photos of her bruises were taken because it doesn’t explain anything about WHEN she received her bruises, she was reportedly involved in a bar fight and she delayed calling the police.

    And Spygate.

    Don’t force me to post Bill Cowher’s 12.3.10 interview where he admits that Goodell cheated.

    Don’t you realize that these framejobs are all the same manifestations of one another?

    In the internet age, anyone can say anything and it can be positioned in such a way where Goodell can then dupe the NFL customer, cheat and punish based on which owner or owners want it done.

  36. Here’s what will happen if this goes to court. Elliott will ask the court to unseal the 160 pages of NFL report. The league will fight tooth and nail just as it did to prevent the release of the Brady proceedings that showed Goodell lying multiple times about things Brady did that he in fact did not.

    Its “more likely than not” this report on Elliott will show that Goodell is also lying about this situation and railroading Elliott. Goodell will then invoke article 46 and it won’t matter because under that scenario the lies and corruption of Goodell’s National Integrity League don’t matter, only the power that article in the CBA gives him.

  37. If this is the type of girl she is, isn’t it within the realm of possibility that Zeke lost his cool and hit her? In fact, it may make it more likely now that we may see the motivation behind it.

  38. This is unfortunate.. It’s really tough to know what’s really transpired with this kid and what a just punishment ought to be due to some of the league’s past credibility issues

    ——————————————————————
    You base this comment on what? Do you know the timing of this exchange? Perhaps it was in response to having been hit and the likelihood that he would avoid prosecution because of his status. Is the motivation a mitigating factor? Neanderthal thinking.

  41. This is the sort of thing that would keep a DA from pursuing the case, clearly. Even if Zeke hurt her, any halfway decent Cowboys-funded defense attorney would use this to cast doubt.

    The whole case is really sordid, and I have no idea how to feel. Everyone looks bad.

  42. Jerry Jones will not stay as quiet and “in line” as Kraft did during Deflategate. All charges dropped, zero witness credibility and an owner that loves the spotlight? Grab your popcorn….

  43. It is hard to find out what happened. In ray rice we have a video. Josh brown admitted to the domestic violence. Rothlisburg settled out of court on his situation. but still all got less then Elliott. I haven’t read anywhere or seen anything that forces me to believe her. Again i can’t be a 100% correct but if the NFL decision comes down to credibility then i am not sure how they got this right.

    Alos while the nfl did investigate a year i am pretty sure no one is under oath or obligated to tell the truth. So i find it hard to believe they thought she was more credible then Elliott.

    A real judge won’t give a hoot about Article 46, once Goodell and the NFL is sued, and all of their phones and computers are up on an overhead projector for all to see.

    It will show consumer fraud, cheating, lying, framing and whatever else we don’t even know about with his corrupt regime.

    Goodell can’t win in a real court, out from under the shield.

    BB should have sued with Kraft for Spygate and none of this would be happening right now.

    Brady made a huge error as he had every opportunity in the world to sue for defamation as a union member, and he let Goodell win there.

    I said it all along…Those were mistakes. I sort of understand how Kraft and BB are tied to the good ol boys club and were told to take it, but this cannot continue.

  45. Goodell was given the power of judge and jury by the NFL PA. This shows very poorly for the commissioner, but the players have to be reminded they gave him this power in the CBA…

  46. The pats fired the ball boy who let the air out of the balls. They flat out cheated and got caught. Roger had it right. I don’t agree with everything he does, but he is not stupid. They spent a year investigating this. He didn’t suspend him based solely on what she said.

    Do you read anything for yourself?

    My goodness.

    Children should not be able to post here.

    Article 46 has been in the CBA since 1969 as the NFL and AFL merged. Article 46 is not tied to doling out punishments. It’s an emergency clause that is meant for emergencies only.

    It’s not meant to frame people, steal their money and defame them.

    Article 46 is only actionable IF there is proof of wrongdoing.

    What does it matter what the players may or may not have given Goodell? He should still be expected to work within the confines of truth and integrity, which has so far been unable to do.

    Goodell doesn’t care about anything else but his massively overinflated ego.

  54. Goodell’s credibility when it comes to player discipline is shot. Maybe there is enough evidence against Elliott — we don’t know since the details of the investigation are withheld — but especially since Ray Rice it seems Goodell is only concerned with how he appears in making these decisions.

  55. “Just gives you a deeper look into Elliot’s character based on his choice of girlfriend. Shocking right?”

    Zeke was trying to get away from her and end the relationship. I’d bet 90 percent of the guys posting here have at least 1 legit crazy ex-girlfriend.

    Why the hell does any pro athlete in 2017 allow his sexual encounters to be filmed?

  57. “They took a year to investigate Josh Brown, the Giants knew that he beat his wife, and they still screwed that one up.”

    Nothing was screwed up. Goodell intentionally did everything he could to conceal and bury Brown’s domestic abuse at the express orders of the Maras.

    Exactly correct. It’s what Judges Doty, Jones and Berman all said to him when they essentially called him a liar in different NFL cases where he tried to cheat.

    I believe Doty said “I don’t think you understand what a Collective Bargaining Agreement means, Mr. Goodell.”

    He doesn’t.

    Rozelle and Tagbliaue, at no time since 1969 ever referneced Article 46 when doling it any discipline.

    Another lie being regurgigtated out of 345 Park Ave.

  63. I find it hilarious that there are fans who are stating that Elliot should sue because he’ll win this in court. What part of Deflategate don’t you understand? The court can only rule on whether or not Goodell has the authority to make unilateral punishment decisions, and thanks to the judges who were Jets and Giants fans, those judges ruled that he could during Deflategate. The NFL stated in Federal court that they had no evidence that Tom Brady was involved in a scheme, but he was still suspended because of article 46.

    What exactly do you think Elliot will be suing for, that he’s innocent? This isn’t a criminal matter – it’s an issue about article 46 and as all Pats and Saints fans will tell you, that gives him absolute power to do as he pleases.

    And to the folks who think the next CBA is going to change that – ask yourself this, do you think that the players in the NFLPA are going to be ok with making LESS money by giving up a concession on their side (most likely % of revenue they earn) to take away article 46 when it doesn’t affect 99% of them? Good luck with that.

  64. Newsflash folks, most groupies are looking for a come up whether they blackmail you with photos, videos, texts, or get pregnant and trap you for a child support. That’s not a revelation. Pro athletes should be smart enough to know they are a target. But that doesn’t mean Zeke didn’t put hands on her (allegedly). This smear campaign of the girl will backfire.

    If “credibility” and “we believe her over you” was the NFL’s primary reason for the suspension…then the NFL needs to reevaluate their investigation process if this story is true. So far in less than a week of the suspension I’ve heard nothing about this woman that is synonymous with CREDIBLE. And the NFL had a full year? Not saying he did or didn’t hit her, but her credibility should be highly questioned as “evidence”!

    You need to start realizing that these are not “investigations”. They’re strategic framejobs to cheat, authorized and administered by the commissioner of the NFL.

    Pats fans have been trying to explain this for 10 years now.

    If John Mara or other owners want something done to cheat, they get it done.

    Note how the Pats have been cheated when it appears like there is no stopping them. But, when they were rebuilding on the fly from 2009-2012, no one cared about trying to cheat them because they weren’t the juggernaut they were or are now.

    A Pats fan complaining about being cheated. Thats rich.

    The pats fired the ball boy who let the air out of the balls.
    **************************
    The Pats didn’t fire anyone. You need new lies to spew, that one is old.

    Oh hey! Patriots fans bringing the discussion of an unrelated topic back to them! You never see that!

    It does not change the fact that he beat her up.

    What do you know that everyone else doesn’t?

    “They took a year to investigate Josh Brown, the Giants knew that he beat his wife, and they still screwed that one up.”

    Nothing was screwed up. Goodell intentionally did everything he could to conceal and bury Brown’s domestic abuse at the express orders of the Maras.
    ————————–

    When you have Mara and McAdoo both say that there will be zero tolerance for domestic violence, and they go right ahead and resign Josh Brown, that is a screw up.

    When you have the commissioner enact a mandatory 6-game suspension for domestic violence, and then suspend Josh Brown for only one game, that is a screw up.

    There are no secrets anymore. Everything is public and searchable.

  69. There is WAY TOO MUCH EVIDENCE supporting Elliott’s claims for the NFL to apply their ridiculous “51% burden” when deciding Zeke’s guilt. I’m not saying he is innocent, but there is evidence that supports his side of the story.

    It’s one thing when it’s obvious, such as having a Ray Rice-like video evidence, but there is clearly a large amount of evidence supporting Zeke’s case that the NFL has to be sure a DV happened, not just 51-49% sure a DV happened.

    This is so ridiculous.

  70. When you have the commissioner enact a mandatory 6-game suspension for domestic violence, and then suspend Josh Brown for only one game, that is a screw up.

    He’ll never play in the League again. Get over it.

    At least Brown didn’t violate the integrity of the game with a Championship in the balance.

  71. Doesn’t erase a physical assault. Is is a crime to discuss criminal activity? Unless she actually DID blackmail him, I don’t see how they could possibly prosecute her, even if she is an evil you-know-what. If he beat her, he has to be punished. Period. No qualifiers.

    The NFL did not take a year to penalize him for a he said she said BS
    ========================
    BWA HA HA HA That is EXACTLY what happened.

  73. Yet another case of who do you believe more. The NFL are proven liars yet people STILL believe them no matter what. The Elliot side has everything to gain by lying even though they cooperated from the very beginning. The NFL is going to lose the PR battle again.

    Well, first we have to establish that fact, don’t we? Have we?

    If this is the type of girl she is, isn’t it within the realm of possibility that Zeke lost his cool and hit her? In fact, it may make it more likely now that we may see the motivation behind it.
    ====================
    Based on what? He doesn’t have a prior history of beating woman so why would you think he would hit a woman? What has he done to make you think that?

    OMFG – deflated balls and signals available to the naked eye hardly violate the integrity of the game. Get over it indeed.

  77. The text exchange has no context or vocal tone to provide any evidence of any significance. Check your own exchanges and see how many times you’ve said stupid stuff that wasn’t going beyond that exchange. If there was evidence that she actually acted in that effort then that’s one thing, but a text exchange, really? Hardly a smoking gun of anything nefarious. The problem is that article 46 pretty much allows the NFL to do what ever they want relative to a players behavior off the field. The results will be arbitrary and inconsistent until they can add language to provide framework to how the NFL can respond to these issues. Unfortunately for Elliot, the league couldn’t not respond after blowing the Brown and Rice cases. If she wasn’t a victim of his actions then he’s a victim of the pressures from society. A lot of posters said it best, when you’re an athlete you better keep your head on a swivel and do your best to avoid the situation.

    He’s been suspended 6 games. There should be no “IF”. The fact there is says everything you need to know.

  79. Seems to me the friend suggested blackmail and she was just going along with no actual plans too. NFL release all relevant info on this, the psi and everything else before you get called before the Senate.

  80. When I saw pictures of her for the first time, I looked in those eyes and knew instantly, this woman was trash. They deserve each other.

  81. if I were a star NFL player…you know you have only so many years to make big $$$. So stay away from the bars and nightclubs, from the seedy characters – get as big and strong and fast as possible, make as much as you can get in the likely 7-8 years your earning window is open…then you can go nuts once you’re done. (then you just have to worry about getting sued for all your millions at that point)
