If CTE doesn't doom the league first, their compulsive desire to protect their image will. They covered up the findings by the investigator of the Elliot domestic abuse accusations with the sole intention to show us that they are tough on domestic assault, even when no evidence is present. The League used to be so smart, now they react to social media pressure and have become so dumb. Just like our society today. Fuck them and that bitch VP of investigations. http://deadspin.com/report-nfl-may-have-screwed-up-its-ezekiel-elliott-inv-1798685944 It’s those failures of the process that Elliott and the NFLPA attacked during the appeal hearing and plan to exploit if they have to go to federal court to seek a temporary injunction. That Roberts’ recommendation didn’t make it into the report and Roberts not being involved in the decision making, even though she ran point on the fact finding with the accuser, are trap doors that could come back to haunt the NFL if this goes to federal court. Lisa Friel, the league’s senior vice president for investigations, was reportedly the person to recommend a six-game suspension and the person to bar Roberts from the meeting with Goodell. Last fall, an ESPN reporter had reportedly witnessed Cowboys owner Jerry Jones angrily confronting Friel about the league’s investigation into Elliott.
