Good recovery, but that end to the half and beginning of the third was rough

I thought for sure we'd find a way to lose this game after the way the 1st half ended... Glad we didn't squander having Zeke around for another week!

Emergency injunction denied. Elliot to start serving suspension.

Good thing I'm not really invested in the NFL because I can't imagine anyone liking that joke of a commissioner. He makes David Stern look likable in comparison.

Yeah this is the first year I'm not waiting around Sunday morning waiting on football. Still watching redzone but it's really hard not to be annoyed with the NFL with everything going on with it.

Yeah, I don't know if this is a strong negotiating tactic to get the owners to settle on the original deal, or if this is going to push them into Jerry's corner.

@AdamSchefter: Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is withdrawing his appeal, per a source. Elliott will serve his six-game suspension and return to the Cowboys on Christmas Eve against Seattle.

@AdamSchefter: Ezekiel Elliott withdrew his appeal because, legally speaking, the case was unlikely to be resolved before the six games were served. So now he will take them and return Dec. 24.

@AdamSchefter: Roger Goodell told Jerry Jones that he would not suspend Ezekiel Elliott - one more reason this is where it is.


Roger Goodell has a Jerry Jones problem and nobody knows how it will end

What's funny is I do think Zeke deserved a game or two for being screw up. He clearly did things that aren't aligned with the NFL's image. I think most people would agree with that.

But no, they slapped 6 games specifically nailing him for supposedly assaulting a woman who blatantly lied during the whole process. If they clearly had hard evidence against Zeke, then it would have leaked by now. But they don't. They really screwed up on this and it might be damaged beyond repair.

The NFL thinks two wrongs make a right -- Zeke is basically serving what should have been Ray Rice's suspension.

That was not my takeaway from the piece. The segment did not say that Goodell told Jones that Elliott would not be suspended; rather, Jones came away from a phonecall "with the impression" that Elliott wouldn't be punished with a suspension.

Then, later, after considering the evidence, Goodell determined that a suspsension was appropriate, and informed Jones thusly.

There is a big difference in saying Jones' interpretation was X; or that Goodell informed Jones of one thing, and then changed his mind (a la Stephen Smith's reporting).

Even so, Goodell might rightly change his mind after re-considering the evidence, or considering additional evidence.

Pretty obvious that Jones is pissed about having his stud-headbasher taken out for the season, and that he's hell-bent on taking Goodell down for wrecking his season.

Jones has been channeling Al Davis for years now, and it will be interesting to see if he has the juice to run the league from Dallas, or if he will cement the franchise's prospects in eternal mediocrity by taking on the league and failing.

Good read. The NFL really couldn't have screwed this up anymore than they did. A lot of this blame falls at the feet of Goodell and his hand picked staff. He had an image problem after so many hits to the face when he took over. So he did everything he could to rectify that by hiring people to help with those issues or at least boost the public image of the league and send a message that "we are trying to get it right". Then the league screwed up again with Brown. Then Friel leaves out the investigator's findings and doesn't invite her to the final meeting that presents the case for disciplinary action. The only reason to leave the investigator's findings and or the investigator herself out of that meeting was because her voice could sway the vote and thus have the league seem soft for yet another time by not suspending Zeke. Then there's the obvious pressure from other owners who would raise objection if Zeke, and really Jerry, be punished. So Zeke is the victim of a league office trying to make up for several cases of inaction during a time it's never faced more scrutiny, and he's also the victim of the bigger problem boiling for the NFL, a power struggle between owners and other owners and owners and league office, which has basically empowered itself under Goodell.

Messy as hell... and it's basically killed my football interest this year. Thank God for DSJ.

Yeah, a majority of the football I watch is RedZone, sometimes even when the Cowboys are playing... Aside from fantasy, the only things keeping me interested are Dak, Zeke, and oracle-mode Romo.

Of course, fantasy kind of hurts my interest as well by making me far more aware of major injuries that I never used to pay attention to unless they happened on the Cowboys... Every torn ACL makes me wonder why anyone would want to play the sport for a living, every story of CTE makes me wonder why the hell I keep supporting it... Then toss in the regularity of domestic violence, ridiculous career-killing weed bans, Goodell's spin-control kangaroo courts, and the dumbass "controversy" over kneeling, and yeah, the NFL just isn't worth my time, energy, or money these days.

Go Mavs.

Just to add to my last post, even the Cowboys making the playoffs would be far less interesting to me right now than the Mavs getting a top-5 pick in this draft... It feels like all the horrible basketball I sit through is still more rewarding than the anything going on in the NFL, and that just SHOULDN'T be the case.
