(VIDEO) Response to Ezekiel Elliott may push NFL to take harsh action

WWGD? What will Goodell do? That's the question before the NFL now that women's groups and outcry from the public has gotten louder about Ezekiel Elliott. When a video was released showing Elliott pulling down a woman's shirt and exposing her breasts to a crowd at a St. Patrick's Day parade, it was only a matter of time before women's groups would weigh in. And they did. Shaunna Thomas, co-founder of UltraViolet, an organization dedicated to fighting sexism and promoting women's rights says Elliott committed a crime and is calling on the NFL to suspend him.
The reality is that what happened in that video was sexual assault, period."
This will be a telling moment. With just about half of the NFL fanbase compromised of women, it's important that the NFL send out a consistent message with its response. Given the fact that Zeke is also being investigated for an alleged case of domestic violence, this action couldn't have come at a worse time. What do you think?
