I can't find it anywhere online. Where did you hear this? If it's true, then that monster year he had last year is in question.

If it's true, then a lot of people need to take him off their "we should of......" list.

Thats interesting its Merriman. I remember right around Draft time it was Luis Castillo(also picked by the Chargers in the first round) who had the roid incident. Interesting...

Default Re: Shawne Merriman suspended (roids)

I don't like the policy. 1st time offense should be out for a year, 2nd time offense out for life. Heres the link:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2635475

Chargers linebacker Shawne Merriman has been notified he will be suspended for four games for violating the NFL's steroids policy, league and team sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Merriman's positive test was "definitely for steroids … not one of those supplement deals" said a source with knowledge of Merriman's suspension.

Merriman's suspension originally was to be announced last Tuesday when two other players -- the Falcons' Mark Lehr and the Lions' Shaun Rogers -- were suspended for violating the policy. But Merriman reserved the right to appeal his suspension, so it was not announced.

Neither the Chargers, nor Merriman, could be reached for comment Sunday night.

Earlier Sunday the Chargers lost to the Chiefs 30-27 in Kansas City.

I think that's too harsh. I would have them be out a whole season the first time. Two season's the second time and then out for life.

It depends on which ones you take. Some can stay in your system for more than a year, while others can be gone completely in about 6 weeks.

Steroids are illegal, so I would consider this a "legal issue."

Don't steroids cause permanent changes in muscle mass?

Once you take steroids for years and work out intensively, the muscle you gain is there fore life, right? Just because you stop taking steroids isn't going to cause it to atrophy away.

So because it causes some permanent changes, and a player is shown as being too careless to avoid the penalties, I am changing my opinion. I think steroids should be a no tolerance life time ban.

Thats right. If you're caught EVEN ONCE, you should be out for life. Thats the only way to really get the message home. Otherwise people will use until their caught, wait 4 games, and then do it again.
