Although I can see how maybe it indicates that he does not take his job seriously enough if he is not willing to give it up for a multi-million dollar job.

Well, the big deal is for one thing, it's illegal. I work in a substance abuse facility full of clients who have lost their jobs, family, and other loved ones because of the addiction. But, aside from that, legal or not, it's against the drug policy of not only the team, but the league. So, if one is an NFL player, he's held at a very high standard. He's a role model whether if he likes it or not. Young kids and other fans are going to look up to him. These players need to keep their noses clean.

Yeah, big deal or not, weed is still illegal. So until that changes, everyone needs to play by the rules. No excuse for these guys getting nailed 3 times. Pathetic.

I personally don't care about the legality issue. Weed is illegal but its safer and healthier than any meds, booze or cigarettes. Stupid NFL rule, sure. NBA is much more lax on it I think.

Nevertheless, the NFL rules are very clear. Morality and scientific arguments don't matter here. Rules are clear and smoking risks loss of millions of dollars for these guys. It is terribly stupid and irrational to continue a habit with that on the line. Especially since NFL players only have a few years to peak and make their money.

Redskins Sale Jerseys at RedskinsTeamStore.com.


Looks like Fred Davis jersey just hit the market for $9.95. If you notice all the jerseys of former players are reduced to that amount.


Is Shanny trying to tell us something here? :cool-smil




j/k.....it's his old number.

Re: Report: Fred Davis, Trent Williams suspended four games

I really hope so. But if either gets busted again i think most of us would think theres a bigger issue here. Hopefully the Redskins take a deep look into it.



Id like to see Shanahan or Allen ask Davis and TW to submit to voluntary regular weekly drug tests that would be "off the record", as a form of hand holding. Sometimes just being able to say "i cant man, i got to take a drug test on Monday" can help you say no. And if either of them skip or fail then the Redskins can help them with what is likely a much bigger issue.

I'm not sure the players union would allow something like that... either way they are going to be subjected to random testing.

Yeah its prob not allowed, i think Ricky Williams did something like that though. If i was Davis and wanted the best contract i would tell them that im doing it on my own and here are the results.
