  • NFL penalty box thread



    Arrests, game play suspensions, accusations, performance enhancing drug violations, other suspensions, and anything else that speaks to somebody in the NFL getting in trouble with the league or with the authorities...

    News that might not deserve its own thread but is noteworthy nonetheless.

      This will be bigger than the David Carr thread in no time.
      Depression eh? I'll bet he's got it bad. Living up there in all that cold weather. Rooting for the Pirates. What Pittsburgonian isn't depressed? I hear the zoo there is depressing too.

      I wish the NFL would say what they tested positive for instead of the blanket broke the substance rule announcement on these things.

          Why can't the NFL report what they tested positive for?

          They can't expect us to guess from the 60+ pages of rules as to which one was broken. A year suspension says to me it is way more than marijuana this time. I just think it is shady not to give out the facts in these cases.
          It's a urine test. Just tell the media what came back positive. How hard is that?

            Isn't medical information confidentiality protected by law? I think it's illegal to disclose that information.

              That figures. I guess it's only when the player says what it was, that we get to know.

              Okay so I am going to say it was heroine then since we are forced to take an uneducated guess.

                              Number of N.F.L. players arrested, cited or charged with a crime, by calendar year 2000-2014. Blocks are 10. So 60+ incidents in 2007.
                              http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/13/up...ests.html?_r=0







                              Lower numbers in the early 2000s could be an artifact of less intensive press coverage that meant more arrests went unreported.
