Personally, I don't understand why pot is such a big deal in the overall scheme of the subsatnce abuse policy. It is more of a performance inhibitor than an enhancer. If Ricky played of the Jailblazers he could grow it in his locker. Barry Bonds could possibly taint one of the most sacred records in all of sports in a few years, but it is going to take Congress threatening Fehr with CIA cancer to try to implement testing for steroids in MLB, and it may or may not include HGH. With all of this, what is wrong with a little herb?

A "little" (loose term, because little is relative to exposure to the drug) herb on gameday could cause a player to loose focus during the game. It could the difference between a 4-yard loss and a 40-yard TD.

It could also be the difference in blowing an assignment that gets another teammate hurt. One of the most beautiful things about sports, and football most of all, is how it teaches discipline responsibility and how to work together. All three things you need in the real world.

Sports has and never should have any room for drugs.

what you fail to realize, is that pot (THC) metabolizes in fat cells. basically, it stays in you system for nearly 30-40 days from usage. Different metabolisms dissapate it at different rates, but you cannot tell if someone got blunted in his car before a game, or smoked at a concert 20 days prior from a U/A. Cocaine, opiates, methamphetamines, and barbituates dissapate in 2-7 days to undectable amounts. If you take 2 200lb men and one smokes 1 joint, and the other does 12 grams of blow, in 14 days the guy who smoked pot will fail a U/A and the coke user will pass, even on a Texas DOT U/A. Not a single one of you could credibly tell if Ricky was blazing on his way to a mini camp, or it is residual from weeks prior unless you take a follow up to determine the rate of dissapation. (23 nanograms at initial failure;19 two weeks subsequently;12 two weeks after that...etc.) you are ignorant to assume that Ricky was getting twisted right before an important game or practice. Put your autographed "Playmakers" DVDs away!!!

My only question is, why wasn't I invited to the party Ricky? Just kidding. The Dolphins are a perfect example of why Casserly goes for character guys. Look how much talent that Phins have had and the production. It just doesn't match.

My point was really quite simple. If he does get high before a game, then the results COULD be bad. BTW there is also no way of knowing when he smokes. You may suggest that he does not smoke before the game, but I am sure you are not around him 2 hours before a game. Somebody with his type of money should not be taking these chances. I would never encourage somebody to smoke; however, I don't hold against the people who do. I just think he should just hold off until he retires.

The problems keep coming for the 'phins. They havent been pleased with David Boston, QB controversey, and they better hope that their O-line is better for Williams this year (which it should be).
