    The league is still putting its head in the sand on this issue and it will end up being the downfall of the NFL either through financial losses in lawsuits or just the decrease in the talent pool as less and less people let their kids play football.

    In terms of lawsuits, they settled with former players on financial compensation. Going forward, you can bet that there's going to be language in every player contract that states players are at high risk of CTE and turning into vegetables later in life and if that happens the NFL is not responsible and if you don't agree don't sign, otherwise initial every single one of these points in front of a notary

    Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended 6 games for domestic violence accusations dating back to last year. Elliott has never been arrested in connection with the accusations, but the league found "that there is substantial and persuasive evidence supporting a finding that [Elliott] engaged in physical violence against Ms. Thompson on multiple occasions during the week of July 16, 2016". He's expected to appeal (he has 3 days to file). Presumably Jerry Jones is already prepping motions to the Supreme Court, The Hague, and the United Federation of Planets.

    The Buffalo Bills did some dealing.

    Bills traded WR Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams for CB E.J. Gaines; also acquired WR Jordan Matthews from the Philadelphia Eagles for CB Ronald Darby

    Yeah the rest of the league is really shedding bucket of tears for the Patriots offense. Cooks is still going to have a monster year, Gronk is healthy and Hogan will pick up all of Edleman's stats. Can you be a more entitled fan?

    I doubt Gronk can last an entire NFL season, let alone be healthy for the playoffs. Still, not many teams can hang with the Patriots, they will still get 12+ wins and we'll see if Brady runs out of gas

    Even as a life-threatening hurricane barreled toward Texas, Houstonians refused to purchase Dallas Cowboys coolers.

    A photo posted to Twitter by Amjad Ismail showed the cooler section in a Walmart completely emptied except for Dallas Cowboys coolers.

    "Even in a hurricane no one is taking the Cowboys coolers," Ismail wrote.

    Re: 2017 NFL Season Thread

    So Ezekiel Elliot's 6 game suspension was upheld, but he can play this week vs the Giants?? That's not fair.

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...ll-play-sunday

    An arbitrator has upheld Ezekiel Elliott's entire six-game NFL suspension after denying his appeal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday.

    Although the suspension was upheld, the NFL is allowing the Dallas Cowboys running back to play Sunday against the New York Giants due to the timing of the decision, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.
    They've known for weeks he was suspended and should have game planned for him to not be there. Now 4 days out they get him back? BS.
