Overturn the Suspension of Ezekiel Elliott from the Dallas Cowboys and change the policy.

A decision to suspend Ezekiel Elliott, for an astonishing 6 games, has been given today August 11, 2017. This suspension is based on weak allegations made by a former girlfriend of Elliott. The prosecutors that have a sworn duty to uphold the law in this specific case have found and established that due to conflicting and inconsistent information, there was no need arrest, let alone charge Elliott. Regardless if you are a Cowboys fan or not, this is an injustice that needs to be rectified. "Under the NFL's personal conduct policy, players found by the league to have committed domestic violence are subject to "a baseline suspension without pay of six games" regardless of whether "the conduct does not result in a criminal conviction."" It DID not even come close to a conviction because Elliott was never even charged!
"In cases where a player is not charged with a crime, or is charged but not convicted, he may still be found to have violated the policy if the credible evidence establishes that he engaged in conduct prohibited by this Personal Conduct Policy." So, a person's life and livelihood can be impacted by something less than a preponderance of the evidence. Roger Goodell needs to reverse this suspension and change the policy in regards to this type of situation. Sign because if this can happen to one player, it can happen to all!
