And away we go.
If you haven't figured it out by now, all roads in this messed-up world lead to Twitter in the year 2017, and the NFL Players Association wasted no time in following the trend.
A statement from the NFL was put out by Brian McCarthy, the league's main P.R. man, explaining that the NFLPA is using "common tactic(s) to attempt to prove the innocence of the accused by discrediting the victim..." in regards to the domestic violence case of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.
Fairly brutal. That's their statement and they're sticking to it, but the NFL Players Association was apparently having absolutely none of it. Their response was direct, but as petty as it gets.
This is an actual response to a legal matter:
Yeah, that one was deleted within minutes.
The *receipts*? Like...bruises on the victim or something? Just too callous to be real.
The battle over Zeke Elliott's case has really just begun despite the six-game suspension handed down to him by the NFL.
The Players Association put out a legitimate statement following the beefy tweet:
The public statement issued on behalf of every NFL owner is a lie. The NFLPA categorically denies the accusations made in this statement. pic.twitter.com/OFOGQY91Ai— NFLPA (@NFLPA) August 16, 2017
Here we go again. Get your popcorn ready, folks.
