It's so dumb! How is suspending guys for smoking pot protecting the image of the shield? Bah, it's so stupid. The product the NFL puts out this year will be worse because Gordon won't be on the field. THAT is tarnishing the shield in my eyes.

Averaged 19 yards a catch last season. I cannot even comprehend that.

Good for the Steelers, but the League fucking sucks and is stupid. Ray Rice is laughing in between wife beatings...

Wallace averaged 21.0 in 2010 :D

I think it's kind of dumb to have a separate policy for rec drugs - just let law enforcement deal with that.

Otherwise Josh Gordon is why PIT would take action with Bell & Blount...It's not so much that you care what they did but that you need the message to be received so they don't end-up getting suspended for a year at some point. Not to mention it's never acceptable to be drunk/stoned at an organized team activity, even if it's just a short flight.

If Josh Gordon was an owner instead of a player, he'd be in the clear.

I hate the personal conduct arbitrary bullshit.

But I think the disconnect here is that many don't understand substance abuse. I do understand that this situation could likely exist exclusively for Marijuana...but for Gordon that isn't the case as he has also failed for opiates. Most of these guys are poly addicted and have problems with alcohol and other substances. And if guys blowing a third and fourth test for weed with this type of money on the line...it's really quite amazing that some haven't rethought there position that weed is entirely harmless. Anything that can enhance baser pleasures like food and sex to the degree weed does...add to that the lack of toxicity and no hang over price...it's abuse potential is huge. God knows I've been abusing it for nearly 30 years...

I did think he had a chance of getting off...it seems the NFLPA signed off on an amount of weed in the system positive that very well could be second hand smoke...and Gordons levels were low enough that if the samples would have been tested in a different order there would have been no positive...but dating back to college it's like his fifth offense.

GGoodel is hiding behind its a negoatiated policy.

Yep, some guys just don't get it. Gordon has a long list of substance arrests and suspensions going back through several colleges and his brief NFL career. He was so dumb as to get clanged for another issue with one hanging over his head. Then to top it off, his statement today pretty much pushed the blame on the league and it's system. Right! Second hand smoke! :roll:
One would hope that a one season ban would not only wake him up, but also grow him up. This clown is taking "boneheaded" to the next level!
