Exactly the message the NFL has decided is palatable to their market. Probably correctly, but I don't think it says very good things about us as fans.

He def has a track record. But I really think the reason the NFL takes such a hard stance on weed is because it's still a Schedule 1 CSA drug and the NFL gets such preferential treatment from the Feds that the NFL is asked, behind the scenes, to model their policy accordingly.

I'll take my tinfoil hat off now.


I'm going to try to dance around a delicate topic, but if you do any digging into the ownership of all 32 teams, one can understand why "drugs" is more important to keep under control than domestic violence. Or at least be more punitive towards recreational drug use. Wife beating doesn't happen nearly as often as firing up a spliff. Drug use is just morally corrupt, where as slapping your wife around is just "anger management."

Think Nancy Reagan and "the war on drugs."

If he had been picked up with a DUI for drinking too much the punishment would have been the same. It can not be all that hard to avoid doing things that your contract says you can not do. Any DUI is flat out stupid for these men. Hire a driver. Call a cab.
