Schefter: Seahawks CBs Browner and Sherman likely 4-game suspension

Seems like they are playing the system and the NFL is just letting them.

If he is innocent as he claims have the appeal, win and be done with it. The fact they are postponing until after Browner shows he is guilty to me.
If Rogers and Brown or Culliver or Smith and Smith were suspended at the same time I would hope the front office would try to get it delayed as long as possible and appeal as many times as possible.
And nobody here can truthfully say that they wouldnt want them to.

Debating using this technique shows absolutely zero intelligence. You just say "If the shoe was on the other foot you would do the same" and if someone says no you say well now you just aren't being honest with yourself.

The simple fact is, if they are guilty then they should be suspended. They shouldn't allow the team to indefinitely postpone one of the appeals so that they aren't both our at the same time.

I agree that the system is broken, and that most fans would want their team to navigate the system in a the most advantageous manner. It should not be a surprise that Cheatin' Pete found a loophole.

Goodell came hard down on the saints...

How does it look to not suspend/ keep delaying the appeal for a player on drugs after every thing earlier in season.

And, the NFL already gave the seahawks a gift on MNF, no need to give them more.

You said it yourself and yet you still don't get it. It's called DUE PROCESS genius. Sherman called on witnesses to defend his argument, therefore changing the format and protocol of the appeal process. As a result, the NFL pushed it back until after the postseason. The NFL, not Pete Carroll, Richard Sherman or anyone on the Seahawks staff/team have anything to do with how it is structured, rather they are just smart enough to know how to navigate it to their advantage.
Jesus, you guys keep this up and Raiders fans will be in danger of losing the "NFL's dumbest fans" title.

We're not the dumbest, just the most liberal.

Wait, maybe you're right.

His piss had a banned substance in it. If he is really drinking random water bottles, then he should be sterilized so his particular breed of stupid dies when he does. If his unnamed team mate really crushes up his Aderall to mix it into a drink (which is a stupid thing to do with a time-release drug), then he was probably misusing the drug, too. This should be a slam dunk, floowed by a sever peepee slap.

Theyre postponing the appeals because there isnt total proof that hes guilty. And its true that about what I said. No one would want our top 2 players out and would defend them to the end.

If you believe that fine. Fact is when the appeal is over he will be suspended. I am fine with the league letting them play the rules just doesn't look good on them.
