    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.

    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.

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

    You can't take the stupid out of some people. How long is the NFL window?. You seriously can't wait until your mid 30s to do all this crap?.

    amazing isnt it? guys would break their bodies and live the next 15 years on tofu and water if that's what it took to even have a chance of making it in the NFL. and yet, guys like gordon are poised to go bigtime and cant put the pipe down long enough to make millions playing the biggest sport in america.

    you cant fix stupid.

    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.

    Hope he never plays another down in the league. Dumb people should never be rewarded.

    I think you could use some of that by the way.

    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.
