I am certainly not a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. You might even say I’m an anti-fan of the so-called “America’s Team.” And early on I had my mind made up about their star running back Ezekiel Elliot. Frankly I thought he appeared to be an arrogant chump.
Well, evidently looks can be deceiving. I have new-found respect for Elliot, although I will never become a Cowboys fan.
from The Daily Caller:
STAR COWBOYS RUNNING BACK CALLS THE NFL ‘RIDICULOUS’ AFTER BEING HIT WITH RIDICULOUS FINE
Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliot isn’t holding back his criticism of the NFL anymore.
The star running back, 23, was hit with a $13,369 fine this week for “unsportsmanlike conduct,” which seems pretty reasonable, except he only received the fine because he dropped a $21 donation into a giant red Salvation Army pot after to celebrate a touchdown.
Hey NFL (@NFL) why do you have to be the No Fun League and fine Zeke (@EzekielElliott) for donating $21 dollars of money💰to the Salvation Army (@SalvationArmyUS) in the kettle he was doing it for charity? 🤔 🤦🏾♂️ #FreeZekeNoFunLeagueFines pic.twitter.com/1WdnOIXISX

Yeah. The NFL somehow found something wrong with that. Like $13,369 worth of wrongdoing.
And Ezekiel Elliot isn’t exactly happy about it.
