It’s hard to say. Elliott’s injunction temporarily blocked his suspension and gave him the chance to play out the season. The suspension was then reinstated, then temporarily halted, then reinstated aggain. We don’t yet know if he’ll serve the suspension this season.
There’s clearly a big difference between domestic violence and deflating footballs, but because these are actually labor law matters, the federal court process would be the same for Tom Brady and Elliott.
It’s already been longer than two months since Elliott’s suspension was first announced. Although it is back on for now, this battle isn’t over.
We reviewed just hundreds — a couple hundred pages of statements and information, and we reviewed extensively submissions offered by Mr. Elliott’s representatives as well as the information that the NFL gathered,” Lovelace told SB Nation.
We started our series (in partnership with State Farm) examining all levels of football—youth, high school, college and pro—last week with a visit to the Bay Area. This week, Jonathan Jones, Kalyn Kahler and videographer Steve Raum take us to Charlotte to explore its young football culture.
Jones writes about a Clemson-bound senior kicker at 12-year-old Charlotte South Pointe High, B.T. Potter, who booted a 71-yard field goal in practice and is being trolled by Clemson fans after the Tigers’ regular kicker was lost for the season. Jones writes: “Potter’s Twitter account got blown up by Clemson fans asking if he was eligible to graduate high school early and join the Tigers immediately. One fan told him they called his guidance counselor to check.” Big-time football in the south, folks.
