In Topic: If gordon comes back and does well...do you deal him?

08 September 2014 - 06:01 PM

After watching this team for 40+ years I have seen receivers that are big,

receivers that are fast, receivers that can catch, but I have never seen

one that could do all three until I saw Josh Gordon. This kid is only 23 

and has just scratched the surface on what he can do The issue will

not be if he should be traded but if the Browns can pay him what 

he will demand in the future is he says straight.

In Topic: Gordon Suspended for a Year

27 August 2014 - 09:37 PM

I don't think it's an issue that Gordon got suspended. He is an idiot and reaps what

he sows. The issue here is the severity of the punishment as opposed to leniency 

shown to Ray Rice even though it is an entirely different situation. 

Not only is Ray Rice's punishment an issue but remember the New Orleans Saints

a few years ago? Sean Payton and Greg Williams were rewarding guys for 

purposely hurting or maiming a player on the field. They encouraged it and 

rewarded it. They were only suspended for one year also the same as Gordon.

 

Somehow the punishment doesn't fit the crime.

If its from Mary Kay it will be anything but 8 games. If I had to

bet I would put the over/under at 4-.

Browns receiver Josh Gordon is facing a year-long suspension for reportedly testing positive for marijuana.

The NFL’s new drug policy could be in for some major changes.

The new policy, which has been in the renegotiation process since 2011, will substantially raise the threshold for a positive marijuana test and reduce punishments for failing the test, sources told ESPN.com on Tuesday.

The source noted that the NFL’s policy on marijuana is outdated, citing that the World Anti-Doping Agency — which has been adopted by nearly 600 sports organizations — has a higher threshold than the NFL’s current testing system.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon could face a one-year suspension, reportedly after being accused of testing positive for marijuana. While a new drug policy wouldn’t affect Gordon’s pending suspension, it could significantly alter the discipline process and potentially reduce future punishments for players.

Under the current system, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has the final say over all discipline matters. This has been a point of contention among members of the NFL Players Association, who want discipline appeals to go through an independent arbitrator under the new policy.

“(Goodell) wants to hold all the cards and he wants to be the judge, jury and executioner, and we’re not going to go for an un-American system like that,” NFLPA president Eric Winston told reporters last week.

According the report, the NFLPA has also expressed interest in studying the merits of the use of medical marijuana but hopes the two sides can reach a deal in the meantime to make changes to the league’s outdated policy.
