Default Re: Texans waive Players

If this is for having hookers in the hotel I just don't get it.

Ok so it'd be a breach of team rules and require some internal discipline etc, but Kubiak goes and shoots himself in the foot, can't help but feel having wood suited up might have been the finite factor needed once our first two rbs went down and we lost by a single point.

Everything I see about this team this season is pointing to needing to move on from smithiak.

Our QB imploding I could forgive him for.

However I feel he's lost his locker room, made a number of shocking offseason moves, stuck by failing players too long, made poor gameday active roster decisions, made poor disciplinary descisions, failed to recognise terrible deficiencies in his oline, and gone on a ridiculous losing streak.

There is so much we don't know about this. We don't know the story from the Texans side, we just have sources from a player who likely wants to ensure he gets picked up by another team. Moreover, we don't know how many violations these guys have had so far.

At least let the story develop before we use it to fit our pre-defined narratives of organizational ineptitude. We don't need this story to prove that point.

NFL players are not cut for smoking tobacco. This is directed to any of you who think players should be given more leniency, why? They know the rules and for two days cannot stay away from girls, booze, or other things that violate team rules? Give me a break. These are not teenagers but young men.

If you are going to have hookers in your room, you have to send one to Kubiak's room too.

Default Re: Texans waive Players

I would've cut them too just on the dumbass factor alone.. I'm a pothead who's not allowed to smoke and feel like there's nothing wrong with marijuana use and it's hypocritical for it to be illegal while Alcohol is.. however the "man" won't allow me to smoke and I have to be able to pass the whiz quiz whenever asked, so I don't and haven't for years, but if I could.. I would, I love pot and miss the hell out of it.

but back to the "dumbass factor", while you're blowing your "smoke" please refrain from trying to blow smoke up my ass too, I refuse to believe three grown men had to go into a hotel bathroom to smoke a "cigar".. You were smoking a freaking sweat, trees, or whatever the hell the kids call them now. You probably got cut on the simple fact that you couldn't man up to begin with. "Me and two other guys went in the bathroom to smoke cigars"... In the old NFL weekend update skit... REALLY?!

Fine them. Suspend them. Cutting them completely from the team is utterly excessive. Especially players with potential upside.

I find your draconian zero tolerance policy just ironic,

badboy.
You don't want your players getting high before gameday though.

I suspect they weren't that great to see the field...I mean two of them were UDFAs...

Wade and Kubiak aren't that bad to miss talent and if Jefferson/Montogomery were any good in the first place they would have been in the rotation by now, especially Sam.

As for Wood, that's just his loss.

If they are being accused of smoking weed test them on the spot, marijuana stays in your system for 28 days so if they were smoking they would flunk a drug test.

See my post above. If I smoked pot I wouldn't submit to a test. You might not get another chance to play in the NFL if you get suspended for drugs as a first year player.
