There's nothing worse than wasted TALENT. With a PUFF of smoke he's gone.

I thought he was a long shot to return regardless.

What a dummy.

With marijuana becoming more and more acceptable (not legal yet) it's a shame to see the NFL ban a talented player for something like this. Yeah, I know, its illegal, and there is a whole thread on this topic in the [URL="http://www.thewarpath.net/debating-with-the-enemy/42514-war-drugs-cant-won-according-global-11.html"]debating with the enemies [/URL] section. But so many lives have been wasted over such a meaningless prohibition. The NFL should tacitly acknowledge the changing world, and just offer rehab and help, not extreme punishments.

Further, I think this lowers his cost, keep him, and let him get back on track with a new coaching staff.

I agree on the vet minimum but he is gonna miss 6 games.

I thought he was one suspension away from being done for a while after the last time he got trouble?

What makes you think he'll be any different going into his 7th season with his 3rd coaching staff?

If he hasn't gotten it by now maybe it's time to just move on.

Yeah, I'm noticing a trend. Get rid of him.

7th season? God good time to cut this dude loose. I had not realized he been here so long.

You do any job for 7 years and still can't get it then time to move on.

Yeah, exactly. He's already cost us 4 games on a suspension, why give him another 6? It handicaps the roster to keep him around at this point.

I'm surprised it's only 6, I thought he was facing a year long suspension for his next failed test.

It's still illegal in most places. So should the league also ignore players with DUIs, Giants players who shoot themselves in the leg in NYC clubs, QBs who rape and those who kill animals, and players getting in altercations with cops, wives, baby mommas and random strangers?

Sure, there's a degree of how many people those crimes effect but they're still crimes and the league probably is within its rights to suspend and try to control their employees as they wish. The game has to be kept somewhat family-friendly as much as possible to remain profitable. Take a look at the NBA, who has far less of a grasp on its players' behavior than the NFL.

I know the pot fanatics think it's all innocent and harmless, but at this point it's still a primarily illegal activity no matter how many people want to change the law.
