Josh Gordon Hearing Continues Monday

03 August 2014 - 03:15 PM

Yeah- I thought I'd bring it up- we haven't had a formal place to discuss in about a month. 

 

My viewpoints and thoughts.

 

As a laboratory professional "Medical Laboratory Scientists must recognize anomalies in their test results and know how to correct problems with the instrumentation". Josh's test results should be thrown out- (and I'd say the same even if it was Ben Rotlisberger.)

 

Standard deviation is too high, and way to close to the cutoff to be kicking a guy out of the league for a year over. As was pointed out, the NFL standard is 1\10 of the Olympic Committee's. It was pointed out on another board- Josh wouldn't even be in stage 3 if he hadn't agreed to it after the codeine episode, you normally get 2 strikes in stage 2.

 

Secondly- the meeting with the arbitrator went on for 10 hours- and they're still not done. I know lawyers can get paid by the hour, but geeze, this is turning into an OJ type deal. I have a feeling Goodell wanted to be there in person too. Something more than just Josh Gordon going on behind the scenes is being speculated by a lot of observers. 

 

My guess (hope) is Gordon's drug test gets tossed, then Goodell is going to have a long talk with him, and give him a two game suspension under the personal conduct policy to save face.  You can't suspend Ray rice 2 games for domestic violence, and then kick Gordon out for a year for smoking weed- and FWIW, I'll buy his he was getting second hand smoke from his pals argument- that was an incredibly low level. It would be like a person's blood alcohol after drinking one near beer.

Yes, Manziel is taking over Cleveland, but that other thread had gotten FAR too long. Post away, from your Friendly Moderator team.  :)

More perspective on the Chud Firing

03 January 2014 - 01:25 PM

Yes, I'm still not happy about it- BTW, scratch Lovie Smith off the list- signed on as Tampa's coach. An NO NO NO to McDaniels. Anyone can look like an offensive genius if they have Tom Brady as quarterback. 

 

 

From Don Banks, SI  "-- Cleveland's sacking of Rob Chudzinski after a mere year in the big corner office reportedly had several root causes, and just fed into the perception of the Browns organization as Chaos Central in the NFL. But if Cleveland could have gotten more production (or health) out of the three-headed quarterback combination of Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell, Chudzinski probably would have received the Browns' more standard two-year coaching commitment (see Chris Palmer, Eric Mangini and Pat Shurmur)."
