Re: (Merged Thread) Michael Irvin Arrested on Drug Charges

I'm upsed about this because this will surelly hurt his HOF chances and as you all said if he went back to drugs thats no laughing matter your talking about a person screwing his life.

The easiest way to end this is putting him in to a drug test so we can find out if he really puffed the magic dragon.

He seems a little too hyped up all the time to just be smokin' the chronic.

I agree 100% Matty. It too bad he has this problem that he will likely never beat, and I feel bad for the guy. I liked him on ESPN because he was outspoken and made the show entertaining. I hope he is able to get some help and beat this addiction before it kills him.

True, despite how I felt about him during his playing days, I did hope he turned his life around. He could have easily retired, sat at home in his mansion, and do all the drugs he feels like, but chose to continue to keep himself busy and productive, whether it was arena football commentating or ESPN. Hopefully this is just a minor setback.

Re: (Merged Thread) Michael Irvin Arrested on Drug Charges

I like Irvin now that he's retired, but c'mon dude, it's obviously your pipe, this blaming it on your friend is ridiculous. I mean it seems like he would have had to been jacked for the cop to search his vehicle in the first place. I mean was the pipe in plain view? How did he not know it was there? Irresponsible, is all I can say.

Couldn't have said it better. I actually like Irvin on Espn and the radio. Why would a cop search your car unless something was in plain view or he was doing something wrong? For a guy that has had his history you don't dispose of a "friend's" pipe, do you? Come on...I thought he had gotten his life together.

Re: (Merged Thread) Michael Irvin Arrested on Drug Charges

You know the police didn't find any drugs in the car? And given his past, I would like to believe he does all he can to help people who have drug problems. I am inclined to believe Michael Irvin.

Re: (Merged Thread) Michael Irvin Arrested on Drug Charges

dan patrick asked him if he was going to take a drug test, and he said he'd talk to his lawyers and then went off about how his calling in life is to help everyone with drug problems.

in other words, I refuse to answer on the grounds that i'm GUILTY. dan patrick told him his excuse sucked and that drug users tend to be good liars, and irvin instead of getting defensive said "are they?" the whole interview came off as damage control, but without saying he was in any way considering taking a drug test, it just came off as meaningless.

seriously, if he wanted to toss the pipe, he could stmp it and toss the pieces down a storm drain in under 2 minutes. In under 1 minute he could call up espn and say "i'll take a drug test". He didn't do either, the first caused the problem, and until he does the 2nd, it'll continue to dog him.

Re: (Merged Thread) Michael Irvin Arrested on Drug Charges

he was talking about it on the show for about 2 minutes, well i can say he sounds a lot more convincing than TO did in his appology. He says he talked to his lawyer and he will do everything that is neccassary to clear his name, is that taking a drug test???

Re: (Merged Thread) Michael Irvin Arrested on Drug Charges

There are a lot of lawyers who would advise against that for whatever reason. Most people involved in cases don't even talk about them, I'm not surprised he didn't say that he flat out would take a drug test. Then, it didn't even come up on NFL Countdown. Not surprised by anything he said, I just want to believe him more.
