Repeal Ezekiel Elliott's 6-game Suspension (He's Innocent)
After the judicial system (nearly a year ago) ruled Ezekiel Elliott not guilty of domestic violence against ex-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (in attempts to spur controversy after receiving pressure from other NFL owners to suspend Elliott) suspended Dallas Cowboys All-Pro RB Ezekiel Elliott 6 games nearly 13 months after a false domestic violence report was made on Elliott on July 22, 2016. Thompson has made threats to Elliott to ruin his career, and Elliott's defense team has provided substantial evidence of texts made to Elliott from Thompson wishing to falsely accuse him of domestic violence against her. While many fans (particularly of the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins) will laugh at this petition, I firmly believe that this was an effort made by Goodell that was extremely incorrect and unjust. Something needs to be done about it. Commissioner Goodell, I wish that you consider other suspensions you have issued (such as a 1-game suspension to Josh Brown) and realize that you were extremely pressured into making a significant mistake in suspending an innocent player.
Repeal Ezekiel Elliott's 6-game Suspension (He's Innocent). I understand that there needs to be an "example made out of the situation" for future events, but in a case where a player has been dismissed by the legal system, it's been done about the wrong way.
