The NFL's controversial decision to suspend Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott after a yearlong investigation into domestic violence allegations has spurred debate about whether the punishment is too severe.

But domestic violence experts said the NFL took a necessary and crucial stand Friday.

a professor of social policy at the University of Pennsylvania who has consulted with the NFL regarding domestic violence sanctions and written several books on the subject,Richard Gelles, said he believes the league did what Jerry Jones should have done.

'" Gelles said. "History doesn't give you any confidence that Dallas will handle these issues when they arise.", 'You're supposed to take care of your own problems and that if you don't,"The message the NFL sent to Jerry Jones is, we will

especially when it comes to domestic violence. , the NFL can make disciplinary decisions based on probable cause rather than proof beyond a reasonable doubt, Gelles said,No criminal charges have been filed against Elliott. Unlike in a court of law,Womens DeVante Parker Jersey, adding that it needs to be this way

Punishment needs to be expected and consistent,Authentic Laquon Treadwell Jersey, he said.

the punishment has to be certain,Authentic Mackensie Alexander Jersey,"The point of all of this is if you want to deter behavior that you believe to be unacceptable," Gelles said. "It's less important that it be severe and most important that it be certain.

and it sends a message to players like Ezekiel Elliott that their careers are on the line. If you want domestic violence to decline,Womens Trae Waynes Jersey,"It sends a message that they're not going to tolerate domestic violence,Authentic Jordan Phillip Jersey, you have to send this message."

senior director of fund and community development for Genesis Women's Shelter,Bianca Jackson, said the NFL's decision to suspend Elliott is an example of a new trend in how domestic violence is treated and discussed in the public arena.

it shows us that there is now a social consequence regarding domestic violence. Now there's this public court of opinion that puts on pressure,"To me," she said.

Domestic violence, setting a precedent that it's not worth it. , often comes with a pattern of abuse and control that escalates. In order to break that pattern for abusers, Jackson said, Jackson said it seems as though that's exactly what the NFL is doing, "it has to be worth it to stop and it has to be very uncomfortable for them to do it," she said.

which explains its investigation and findings,Womens Laquon Treadwell Jersey,,Gates said Friday that the NFL's recent letter to Elliott, suggests that the league is moving in the right direction when it comes to taking a stand against domestic violence.

Gates said from the outside looking in, Womens Mackensie Alexander Jerseyit appears that the NFL's investigation was very fair. "I think the NFL has stood up and said we're going to do the right thing. I would hope the Cowboys will follow."

The criticism that inevitably follows a decision like this is misplaced, Gates said.

"He made a really bad choice. It's not the choice of the NFL. … It was Zeke's choice to engage in that conduct. Let's make the question … 'Why did this person do that?' vs. making excuses for the consequence or questioning the consequence.

but we lift them up to a different standard. And that's the reality. Kids look up to them,"They're regular human beings, and so they should be held to a different standard."
