Default Cushing's 4-game suspension remains in place

#NickScurfield

Texans just released a statement from the NFL that LB Brian Cushing's 4-game suspension has been upheld after a review by the commissioner

#Adam_Schefter

Commissioner Goodell found no basis for changing Brian Cushing’s suspension. Four game suspension remains in place.

Not surprising, hopefully this is the last time we will have to hear about the suspension until it actually gets lifted in week 5. Getting more and more confident that we can survive those first 4 without him as well.

Default Re: Cushing's 4-game suspension remains in place

I had very little hope that this would be overturned. I'm glad they tried though.
I still think that it is unfair to suspend someone for 4 games when there's even the remotest possibility that the lab test could be false. Cushing did test positive once and negative twice. On top of that, the agent he test positive for isn't a performance enhancing drug but a masking agent. Maybe he was just taking the masking agent for the hell of it. It seems to me though, that the NFL is acting on circumstantial evidence, which bothers me.

Of course it remains in place. I would have actually lost all respect for the commish if he had done anything but scoffed at the Texans.

Overtraining. Yeah, because in a league full of people who have dedicated their entire lives to working out and getting big, you're the one guy that ends up with an excess of female hormone. Uh huh.

From the NOLA Times-Picayune....


# The Saints' second-string offense fared even worse in the two-minute drill. Quarterback Patrick Ramsey threw an interception to Houston linebacker Darryl Sharpton on his second pass attempt.

God, it's about time someone stopped with this nonsense. I'm glad that goodell didn't overturn it either. Cushing tested positive so he should be suspended just like any other player who would have. Amazing how people try to twist this into Cush being some type of victim here. This is his fault and no one else's fault. Hopefully he learns from this and this doesn't ever happen again.

Well, it isn't his fault if he wasn't taking an illegal substance. I have no problem with the suspension being upheld. After all, Goodell has more information on the subject than I do. However, I'm not going to condemn a player and assume that he is a liar and a cheat unless he has a track record to prove him untrustworthy. Until then, I view this as an unfortunate situation and I am hopeful that Cushing is being honest about it.

Agreed. Sounds like the players have his back but have hinted at the same

"Cushing's going to be missed, he's a great piece to this puzzle, but they are not going to stop the games because he's not playing," Pollard said. " . . . We have to back him at whatever he does. That's out teammate, we love our teammate.

"He knows and understands for every decision you make, there are consequences. He has to understand that for everything you do, we have to hold each other accountable. Cush is a great man, he's a great player. And when he comes back we're going to be ready to play ball."

****ing right. RAPE is different than steroid use. RAPE is much different than steroid use. RAPE is entirely different. Especially since this is BR's 2nd RAPE...and only Cush's 1st negative test ever.

I heard a few effects that hcG has, one being increased production of natural testosterone (let's all guess how that would be beneficial to an athlete) and two being increased metabolism (another enormous benefit to an athlete). It wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility to think he loaded up on hcG without a roid cycle just to get those small benefits. However, too much is too much and he got popped. I really doubt he was roiding, just my gut feeling. I honestly believe he values his body too much to do that. I'm probably wrong but hey, time will tell.
