It was only a matter of time before Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott started trending on Monday.
Judge Sue L. Robinson suspended Deshaun Watson for six games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy and he immediately drew comparisons to Elliott’s suspension.
Elliott was suspended for six games in 2017 for also violating the league’s personal conduct policy. It came after an ex-girlfriend accused Elliott of domestic abuse in Columbus, Ohio.
He initially appealed the suspension, but eventually ended up serving it after withdrawing his appeal.
Fans aren’t happy with the move since Watson has been accused by over 20 different women and still hasn’t gotten a longer suspension than Elliott.
The NFL will only have three days to decide whether to appeal Robinson’s decision. If the league decides to go ahead with the appeal, it will be heard by Roger Goodell or someone appointed by him.
