Is it me or the media, or maybe there are actually more suspensions to start 2010 than most years...? Maybe my memory's going but I think of about 2-3 as typical yet it's just June (three more suspension months left! Get it while it's hot!) and for various reasons, we're already past that, with Vince Young looking likely to add to the total.

Yeah it seems like more to me.

Is VY's visit to the strip club going to warrant a suspension?

I imagine it would, but nothing official yet I think.

You'd think that if someone can get suspended without being charged, some sort of suspension for a charge w/videotape would be forthcoming. But seeing as how ESPN isn't screaming for swift action, it's likely Goodell will pretend this never happened.

"tainted substances"?

Is that the new name for roids?

by tuluse :: Tue, 06/15/2010 - 7:23pm

No, it's the name for a banned substance which include many things that aren't steroids. In fact I would bet most banned substances aren't steroids.

Bingo!...I just figured it out! They don't use hops in brewing Sierra Nevada. But it's a close relative that is medicinally popular in California.

Sierra Nevada uses hops. Lots of them.

Nah. They just have really bad glaucoma. And a distribution network established by Nate Newton.

Mr. Joe -

I always knew you was alright, despite what the others may say, and your B&B reference has proven it in a way few other comments could.

My brother.

Misread McRath as MacRaney, I was wondering why Major Dad was suspended at first. I claim the RaiderJoe defense.
