a persons inability to follow the rules after getting caught the 1st time. that shows a trend and a disregard for your privilaged position as a pro athlete. he also got dui while this was under appeal. not too bright.
I have to disagree. Ray Rice knocked his then girlfriend out drunkenly. If you read into Josh Gordon's actual weed "levels" they were literally miniscule. I get that the NFL sends a message that you shouldn't be a repeat offender... but for a drug that is being legalized across America and in small dosages.. it's ludicrous. If the guy is Rob Ford'ing this b***h then I totally agree with a YEAR suspension.
This does not bode well for Aldon Smith IMO.
which time? the guy has been failing tests since college, theres a reason he was a supplemental draft pick. i dont buy the notion that everytime he failed a test he had miniscule amounts in his system. i'm not against weed at all, i smoke it and have a card to get it. i'm am however against people who cant follow the rules in order to maintain employment. we all make mistakes but only a select few continue doing them after being caught because they think the rules dont apply to them. as far as rice goes, first time offender who got a 2 game suspension. should he get more? that can be debated, but i do know under tagliabue he wouldnt even be suspended.
