Josh Gordon Facing One-Year Ban

Josh Gordon of the Cleveland Browns has failed an alcohol test and is now facing a likely one-year ban from the NFL. Yes, alcohol. Because of Gordon's previous positive drug tests and DUI arrests, he was not even allowed to drink alcohol. My response to stories like this used to be anger about how guys were wasting their talents, but I've learned over the last couple years that alcohol abuse is a lot more complicated than that. So now my reaction is just sadness. It's sadness that Josh Gordon can't beat these disease. I hope he can get the help he needs.
