damn that isn't even factoring in the DWI yet either...very probable that he is suspended a good amount even after this year.

not even sure he is capable of staying out of trouble while suspended that long either...

And it's a calender year, not just the 16 games.

Considering it's a calender year, it's absurd that the NFL took so long to announce this. Now Gordon will be forced to miss all of training camp next season as well.

They may claim the DWI wasn't a factor but I don't believe it.

I think he is going to miss at least half of next season anyway for the DWI

The NFL can go **** itself. This is surprising to me... I thought they'd use better discretion in light of domestic abuse cases -- serious crimes -- resulting in a relative slap on the wrist and the facts that have leaked about this case (one sample was just barely over the threshold and the second would have tested clean), but they chose to stick to the antiquated drug policy that seems to indicate smoking and just being in the presence of marijuana (albeit multiple times) is far, far worse than knocking your spouse unconscious and dragging her around by her hair.

The NFL certainly has their priorities in order. Does the NBA even test for marijuana, btw? Does anyone actually give a f#ck if Josh Gordon smokes an occasional bowl or joint or blunt?

What a joke.

a fair punishment for what gordon did would have been a small fine

I agree that its bull****.

What's wrong with having a few tokes now and then? You're not hurting anybody, unless you get in your car. But if it's just you and some buddies relaxing after a taxing day? I don't see the problem. It's also not like their PED's.

yep thats the problem the NFL has...they just see everything as a "failed the substance abuse policy"

every drug is lumped together...pot is treated the same as PEDs



I think that is going to change soon though...pot will be given special treatment

Exactly. It's a farce.

But hey, they can have 100 times more potent opiates in their test for painkillers and be cool. It's a fuccin joke.

Unfortunately, that change will come too late for one of the most talented players in the league whose career may have ended today because the NFL thinks there's no difference between marijuana and HGH. This is sickening.
