I was going to post that as "Ezekiel Elliott getting prepared to appeal a suspension that will be reduced to 4 games".

The sequence of events as they happened:

1) Jerry Jones says he doesn't expect Elliott to get suspended.

2) Jones gets inducted into Pro Football HOF the following day

3) Vince Wilfork leaves Texas, heads to Foxboro, retires as a Patriot

3) Goodell makes his first appearance in Foxboro since the deflate game the following day. Spends time with Kraft up in the owner's box.

4) Elliott gets suspended the following day

It's all there. We just have to dive deeper, find the patterns, and connect the dots.

No one has even begun to figure out how Umbrella Man and Babushka Lady figure into all this.
