Finding either very low urine specific gravity or urine osmolality indicates a diluted urine sample. Excess water consumption could do this but not milk or Gatorade. Washington seems to imply that drinking too much water may be his problem. That doesn't strike me as a good way to mask steroid use.

Re: Marcus Washington Had a Urine Test "Flagged" Last Year

I really hope that the silver lining of all this is that Marcus plays with a chip on his shoulder. He seems a bit pissed that the skins didn't do anything to contest his situation, but I can understand, given all the hype against roids at present, why they kept quiet. I really hope that no permanent harm was done to their relationship--I very much doubt there will be any trouble, due to Marcus's character and personality.

So, in a league full of felons and druggies, they come down on one of the few genuinely nice and honest guys out there? Pretty weak. But that's the nature of blind testing.

Re: Marcus Washington Had a Urine Test "Flagged" Last Year

I just hope he plays without a (bone) chip on his hip. Really, I think this must have such a non-issue shortly afterwards that nothing could have been made from it. He didn't lose any respect, money or playing time as a result. I give him a pass on this one due to his hard-work and quiet demeanor off the field.

Re: Marcus Washington Had a Urine Test "Flagged" Last Year

so there is a lot of water in an athletes sample. Well that would seem to make sense. HE never tested positive even after lots of testing. So it seems marcus was clean but drank a lot of water the day before the test. So what, he is an athlete and probably drank a lot of water while training.

I could care less about this. If MW can take something to help him get on the field than do it.

Maybe this was part of the reason they were pursuing Briggs?

Re: Marcus Washington Had a Urine Test "Flagged" Last Year

Why even bother with this story? He didn't even get to step 2? Did they let this come out now to try and justify his subpar season( I don't think it was so bad) last year? Who cares!!!!! Last season is over and done with. It is a slow time for info I guess.

Re: Marcus Washington Had a Urine Test "Flagged" Last Year

I think something like this could ruin a guys season, but lets not jump to conclusions and assume that this explains everything. There are a lot of reasons as to why MWs play fell last year, including the question to whether it actually did at all. Maybe we are just associating him with the rest of the defense.

Still, something to keep ones eye on. Good find Schneed.

Not a big deal, Shawn Merriman was actually busted and suspended and you've hardly heard about the incident since.

Man, the media and everyone else squashed that story pretty well. It was upsetting to see him go to the Pro Bowl even though he got suspended for 4 games.

this is one of the first flags, to who ever is giving the sample. it doesnt work. just sends up a different type of warning.

The truth of the matter is there are probably at least a half dozen "Marcus Washington" type stories a year we never hear about.

But yeah, they swept the Merriman thing under the rug pretty quickly. I think he sorta brings that excitement on defense since LT left the game.

I wish, born 10/17/1977, so by my precise calculations that would make Marcus 29 turning 30 on or about 10/17/2007
