Roy Ellison

It appears there was some truth to what Redskins Trent Williams was saying. He accused ref Roy Ellison for verbally abusing him on the field and now the NFL has suspended Ellison.

The NFL suspended umpire Roy Ellison without pay for one game for allegedly making a profane and derogatory statement to offensive lineman Trent Williams during the Washington Redskins‘ game Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, the league announced Friday.

The NFL issued a statement on its code of conduct for officials.

“NFL game officials are expected to avoid personal confrontations with players and be respectful of players and coaches at all times. The NFL-NFLRA collective bargaining agreement states that ‘at no time will a game official engage in any conduct which adversely affects or reflects on the NFL or which results in the impairment of public confidence in the honest and orderly conduct of league games or the integrity or good character of its game officials.'”
