Elliott’s six-game suspension is scheduled to start Sunday should it hold up in the New York court.
The strategy works so well because the NFL’s actions are often viewed unkindly by the courts, in particular actions against its players and especially when its disciplinary policies are at issue. Thus, Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension is back on hold as of Tuesday night, thanks to a second temporary restraining order preventing the start of the Cowboys running back’s six-game ban.
Elliott gets to play this weekend against the 49ers and, likely, the week after that against Washington. Well past a year since the NFL began investigating him over a domestic violence allegation, the fact that he’s eligible to play is still all everybody knows for certain.
What was not addressed in detail, per Jenkins, was whether the NFL and team owners will move to make standing during the anthem mandatory in the future with repercussions for franchises and players who don’t follow protocol.
Very, very, very little was about the actual anthem, Jenkins said. We’re really talking more about solutions and how we get the results that we want to get.
Division rivals are meeting to gain an early edge, teams are facing make-or-break games trying to stop losing streaks and presumed powers are beginning new realities without their star players. In Week 7, all of that manages to take a back seat to the Super Bowl rematch … and more references to 28-3 than a franchise, a city and a fan base will be able to stand.
So, you don’t have to skip the entire schedule and save your energy for Falcons-Patriots on Sunday night, but you’d be forgiven if you did. To make things even spicier, both teams are staggering a little bit, more than they expected at this point. The loser will be leaning further toward crisis than they were before.
