The outlook of the 2017 Dallas Cowboys season changed dramatically over the weekend.
The NFL dropped the hammer on Elliott on Friday by suspending him six games for violating the league's personal conduct policy, citing "substantial and persuasive evidence" that he used "physical force" against a woman over multiple days in July 2016 in Columbus, Ohio.

Serby: "Enough with these entitled thugs who think they are Above the Law ... Thankfully, we no longer require an elevator video or the outraged court of public opinion to determine the punishment of laying hands on a woman. Any woman.
