Ryen Russillo / ESPN Radio host - suspension

This is probably a little thin for a topic, but I thought it may be worthy.

Ryen Russillo, an ESPN personality and radio talk show host, was arrested a few weeks ago in Colorado. He was on vacation, got drunk one night and stumbled into the wrong condo - half naked and fell asleep. Russillo was suspended by ESPN for two weeks and returned today.

Here is my point on the whole case. He came on today's show, gave a heartfelt 5-6 minute apology and basically threw himself on the mercy of his listeners. Many obviously had killed him the last two weeks on social media and many questioned ESPN for even bringing him back.

I think this is a great teaching point. Russillo is a public figure and owned the entire incident, which he should. I just wish our other pro athletes / coaches/ hollywood stars would take a cue and just own up to your mistakes! One going on right now is Zeke Elliott. If he'd have just came out and owned this from the jump, it would be long done and over with.

I think most of us can relate to Russillo because many of us have been there before. We've had a few too many and have not made the smartest of decisions following that. What Zeke allegedly did is way different. That's not something the common person has dealt with. At least I hope not.

My two cents.

While in college I passed out in weird places with no recollection of the night before many times. Now, it's a bit different with Russillo since he's in his 40's and works for a nationally known tv station. But nonetheless, it's more of an understanding thing than what a lot highly known ppl do.

Now, yes. But in college it's fair game. I'm actually the one now that is like the big brother of all my friends. I kind of take them under my wing when things get out of hand.

I remember one time waking up in a bathroom in college by a toilet. No idea how I even got there, and then I had to walk home because I didn't know where my car was. I only found out where it was once it got towed.

No doubt about that, my point is I'd like to see our athletes just own their mistakes, instead of fighting them.

Well considering Elliot's case would involve him going to jail if guilty, and that there's a good amount of evidence he actually is innocent, that would seem a pretty stupid thing to do.

Agreed.

Even the NFL's investigator (a woman in fact) recommended no suspension for Elliott because the case against him is weak.

I'm almost sure that Elliott would not go to jail, he's got too much money and access to good lawyers. Why not just take the suspension, get it over with and by mid season, he's playing again and this is all just a memory.

He loses roughly 1/3 of his salary this year plus having to pay back some of his $16.35 million signing bonus. Not fighting this makes it look like he knows he's guilty of beating up a woman, why would someone who thinks he is innocent want that image out there?

Elliott makes millions, with an "s", he'll have bigger paydays. He's calling the NFL's bluff and they aren't blinking.

Unless he blows out his knee this year. He does not make millions. He makes $1.5 million this year and just lost 1/3 of that. If he blows his knee out, he won't make another dime playing football. That doesn't even mention you didn't touch on the fact that if he doesn't fight this it's the PR equivalent of saying "hey, I beat her up."

What if he didn't beat up that woman, should he just admit it because he has good lawyers? I'm sure you'd have all kinds of respect for him then, right?

C'mon EP, you don't think there is some guilt here at all?? Look, we've seen this bozo's act for 5 years now, he's a bad apple, he got away with all kinds of crap in Cbus because he's a Buckeye football player. Now that he's out of the Buckeye shield, he gets nabbed. Just own it and move on.

Agreed, Ohio State is to blame.

Maybe if he didn't in fact beat a woman, which is what the evidence suggests, then he isn't cool with being accused of doing so and losing 33% of his salary because of it?

Just a guess.

This isn't just specifically about Elliott, it's about the NFL's personal conduct policy, which the players union agreed upon. Goddell has a responsibility to protect the image of the NFL. If you make the NFL look bad, you can be disciplined. Elliott is a multi time offender, and has a history of poor decisions, I see nothing wrong with sitting him for part of a season to straighten the kid out.

Who is it about then? Elliot is the one suspended and the one we're discussing.

By that standard, Goodell should have been suspended/fired long ago.

While I realize that "14" may signify the wattage of a symbolic light bulb that appears when an idea pops into 14Red's noggin, he has got to be trolling. No one is that dumb

I have been saying that for awhile. Just look at the reds thread for the best examples. Literally every post he makes just makes you shake your head

I don't think 14Red has followed the story closely enough to give a valid opinion. He clearly doesn't understand all the facts presented thus far.

Of course, even if he did his opinion still wouldn't be valid.
