NFL vs NFLPA: Let The Battle Begin

If the official appeal put in by Ezekiel Elliott didn’t kick off things initially, you can guarantee things have started now. Earlier this morning the NFL released another statement regarding the case surrounding Elliott: 

NFL Statement

Ezekiel’s father Stacey tweeted a few days ago that they were ready to fight and there would be additional evidence brought to light to prove his son’s innocence. According to documents collected by Yahoo Sports, there was a text exchange between Elliott’s girlfriend and a friend of hers discussing the selling of sex videos of herself and Elliott. 

There was also the mentioning of her threats to “ruin his career” and witnesses even heard her say, “You’re a black male athlete. I’m a white girl. They are not going to believe you.”

Just shortly after the NFL released their statement, the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) fired back: 

Roger Goodell has already brought former league executive, Harold Henderson, on board to listen in on the appeal, which will take place on August 29th. One thing is for sure. This thing is just getting started, and we have no idea how it will conclude.
