Default Browns receiver Josh Gordon suspended 2 games

Violating league substance abuse policy

Can someone please explain to me why the NFL does not release what they tested positive for? Pretty much letting the athletes make up whatever BS story they want.

NFLPA negotiated that.

Of note generally...
Quote:
Absent a violation of the law, a suspension under the substance-abuse policy happens only if a player commits multiple violations. For players like Josh Gordon...thats a lot of violations to rack up in only one year.

Once a player is in the substance-abuse program, he knows hes going to be tested. To end up getting suspended means that he has continued to test positive even when he knows hes going to be tested unless, of course, the subsequent violations come from failing to comply with the testing requirements.

That would be revealing private medical information. Can't do it without player consent.

Speaking of which, PFT reports Josh Gordon says he took cough medicine containing Codeine.
Quote:
In February, I was diagnosed with strep throat for which a doctor prescribed antibiotics and cough medicine. Apparently, the medicine I took contained codeine, which is prohibited by the NFL policy, Gordon said in the statement.

Josh Gordon faces season long suspension
Updated: May 9, 2014, 6:05 PM ET
By T.J. Quinn and Don Van Natta Jr. | ESPN.com
Quote:
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon could face a season-long suspension after a second failed drug test months ago, this time for marijuana, sources told "Outside the Lines" on Friday.

Reached by phone Friday afternoon, Gordon said: "That's something you're going to have to talk to [agent] Drew Rosenhaus about. I really don't know anything about it."

Josh Gordon could face a season-long suspension after a second failed drug test months ago, this time for marijuana, sources told "Outside the Lines."

Asked whether he planned an appeal of his suspension and test, Gordon said, "I'm going to have to find out about that later. You need to call Drew," before hanging up.

Gordon's had the habit forever now. Don't know if he'll ever be able to can it.

I'm surprised we haven't had suggestions that we trade for Gordon yet. Bad behavior seems to excite some of our posters for some reason.

This is true, but damn weed should obviously be legal. Can sell destructive alcohol at games... We are reaching that point though. By 2020 I say.

damn weed caused stupid decision probably costing millions so spread it to others? I think it should be legal also but things like this make me wonder about people. Guess it depends on the people.

I'd totally take a flyer on this guy. Get him for a box of rocks and you haven't really risked anything. Mcnair would never do it though.

There are plenty of legal substances that are banned by professional sports. Legality is no excuse

It's not about the pot. It's about the fact that it's illegal in the NFL and he keeps getting busted for it. He's stupid. He's got all the talent in the world and he's wasting it for drugs. He's a loser. He's dumb as hell. He's a liability.

Millions of people would kill to have what he has and he's throwing it away repeatedly. He's a ****ing IDIOT.

I understand, but if weed became legal, I doubt the NFL would ban it. It would be treated like alcohol imo.

In spite of dire consequences -- extreme financial harm and potential loss of all of his "high earnings years" that would set him up for life -- Gordon continues smoking marijuana when he knows he's going to be tested...

Now this isn't some college kid doing something stupid, this is a grown man who has been multply warned in very clear terms that his life-long financial future is at stake, yet he lights up. Maybe he has a problem.
