Default AP Doing A Re-Vote

With The re-vote now taking place, cushing will likely lose his DROY award. IMO this is dumb. they will obviously vote some one else DROY so why not just give it to the 2nd place guy. I guess stripping the award straight up sets a bad precedent. Thoughts?

Brian Cushing is dumb for getting caught, but lets not mince words here. This isn't the first time busted player won an award. I think the AP wanted to make some news themselves and are inserting themselves into the limelight because they know that it's an incredible waste of time.

Classic overreation - Let's re-vote without knowing all the facts involved

What if it turns out that Brian challenges and reverses the suspension in court?

Will the AP re-vote again? How many times can a re-vote occur?

So where were the jack offs in 2006 when Merriman tested positive for roids. He had just won the DROY award in 2005, yet did he get stripped? This is some bull ****.

Great, but how about we reserve the judgment until we know what he actually took? If he loses this award for taking Sudafed, then I don't think it is warranted. If it's HGH, Roids or similar stuff, then fine, I can understand it. Doing the re-vote now before the whole story is public is a joke and it sets a bad precedent. The voters will not have all the information and it will only lead to more controversy in the long-run.

Cushing deserves to be punished and hopefully will be a man and learn from it.
With that said, this has got to be a joke right? Some sort of 'mock' re-vote? They can't really take that from him. One of the dumbest things i've ever heard.

I think he deserves to be stripped of the award but where was this outcry in 2002 when Peppers actually served a 4 game suspension during his rookie year? I think its a combination of an example being made of Cushing and the new age media where all the sportswriters etc. are probably all tweeting amongst themselves.

EDIT: I wonder if Justice would have written that article on how all this was pretty much a non-story had he known the AP would do a re-vote. That's a pretty solid amount of pie in his face.

I don't care what happened in the past with other players......that has nothing to do with Cushing. When you put banned substances into your body, you take the risk of public humiliation and shame. Cushing has to deal with the repercussions and I don't really care if he's stripped of every award and accolade. Hopefully he's shamed so bad that nothing like this will EVER happen again.

Cushing making a mistake in NO WAY precludes sportwriters from being Id*o*s themselves. The AP has had precedent to do this before, but only now, THIS time decided to pull the trigger.

It's not like Cush has to give back his Pro Bowl bonus, so what's the point?

So now that they are re-voting.... who is the new favorite for 2010 DROY? I'm fairly confident its not gonna be Cushing so between Byrd, Orakpo and Matthews who gets it? Personally I think I'd have to go Orakpo.

Who cares if they haven't pulled the trigger before? Sports Writers are growing more and more intolerant of athletes who use HGH and other steroids. Cushing put himself in this situation and he has nobody to blame, but himself. The only reason why people are getting upset with the decision of the AP or even care is, because it's happening to "their" guy. Frankly I'd rather he lose the award then having to listen to people everywhere constantly say how he doesn't deserve it, because he cheated.

Uhm, no. I'm upset that they just now decided to pull the trigger because it isn't one of their big markets in CA or NY that they'll be pi**ing off. I blame Cushing for what he did. His punishment is a 4-game suspension. Cushing, however, didn't call for this silly re-vote, the AP did. I'm blaming THEM for THEIR actions.

Here is the thing I have heard and seen reports of many NFL players using steroids without getting caught. If true, how do we know who is cheating and who is not? We don't. I have heard he is not the only one by any means. So, are they just going to give the award from one cheater to the next? Well, without any testing to these new front runners that seems to be the case IMO. I say these guys should be tested before hand it is only fair but even that does not mean they were not on anything at some point and time. Does it? Just saying.
