    There is no way there are no PEDs in the nfl (all sports really). The NFL players are chiseled and ridiculously large, Brady is 45 and a superstar…. 


    you have poor drug testers being bribed tons of money tO fake a test? This has to happen all the time. The NFL doesn’t need this getting out there and ugly. Not a shocker that they only slapped him with five games. 

    Oh, there's PEDs all over, even in college. I personally think it should all be fair game, but it's really more about the bribery. Might seem innocuous and not a big deal to some, but I'd personally ban him for life to set an example. The NFL has a lot of work to do to be able to claim a high ground on integrity, but this would be a step in the right direction.

  2. Just saw this on ESPN. Suspended 5 games, NFLPA trying to get it reduced to 2. Crazy to me how he was only suspended 5 games. Bribery is a pretty serious crime. I'd ban him for life.

    Dallas Cowboys right tackle La'el Collins was suspended after trying to bribe the league's drug-test collector, sources told ESPN.

    Players cannot be suspended for positive marijuana tests under the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, but Collins' issue was multiple missed tests and trying to bribe the test collector, sources said.

    The NFL initially was preparing to suspend Collins five games for his actions, but the NFL Players Association -- aware of the intended five-game suspension -- helped negotiate a reduction to what would have been a two-game ban.

    Collins, however, appealed the suspension, and the appeal was heard by an arbitrator appointed jointly by the league and the NFLPA. The arbitrator not only rejected Collins' appeal but also ruled that, based on the evidence, the suspension should be increased back to the original five games.

    Collins' lawyer is attempting an appeal of the arbitrator's decision, but league sources believe the suspension, which was announced Sept. 10, will not be reduced.

    EDITOR'S PICKS

    Both the NFL and NFLPA declined comment this weekend when contacted by ESPN.

    Collins served the first game of his suspension in last Sunday's victory over the Los Angeles Chargers and will also miss Monday night's matchup against the rival Philadelphia Eagles.

    He believed he had legitimate reasons for missing seven drug tests, one of which was scheduled for the day that Cowboys strength and conditioning coach Markus Paul died in November. Collins missed another drug test the day of his uncle's funeral.

    Collins is not the first NFL player to attempt to circumvent the league's drug-test policy. In 2013, the NFL suspended Denver Broncos star Von Miller six games after he was caught attempting to corrupt the drug-test program with the help of a urine collector.

    If his suspension is not reduced or overturned, Collins will be eligible to return to the roster Oct. 18, the day after the Cowboys play the New England Patriots.

    The suspension will cost Collins roughly $2 million and, per the CBA, voids the injury guarantee worth $6.48 million in his 2022 salary.

    Collins has started 62 of the 63 games he has played for the Cowboys since 2015 at left guard or right tackle. He missed 13 games in 2016 because of a toe injury and all of last season because of hip surgery.

    It’s a good trade- not great. We didn’t gain a draft pick , a better one but not an additional one. From Minnesota’s perspective they gained a “prospect “ and still have the same number of draft picks albeit a couple of rounds later.

    Terrible take. Herndon is an absolute scrub, and we moved up 2 rounds to get rid of him while saving cap space.

    i think our DL with the addition of Rankins (assume healthy) is stacked with or without Saleh. we have at least 3 and maybe 4 pro-bowl type players on the DL. 

    Put down the crack pipe.

    Love the quotes around “skill” lol.

    However I believe the lack of perceived skill on the 2020 squad was due to the worst QB/HC combo in modern NFL history. This offense will surprise people if Wilson is at or above the Dalton-line.

    Our defense though... scary (to Jets fans, not opponents).

    Ehh, I dunno. Perhaps we can have okay WRs, but I would've liked to have pursued another in FA or in a trade. We don't truly have a #1 WR, and our #2 is kinda lackluster, regardless of who it ends up being.

    Wesco, Smith, Austin. Maybe we can snatch up Will Greer, and see if Jerry west is a two-sport athlete. 

     

    Has a football player from WVU ever been successful? I mean, Owen Schmidt opened up Schmidt's Saloon, but that's closed now...

    Not all college production is created equal (I'd argue production in SEC is as good of an indicator that were gonna find, if any are of relevance).

    Also, you made me Google Colt Brennan, that is one scary Wiki. Background checks are a good idea!

    Jesus, this comment didn't age well. Colt Brennan dead at 37.

    Elijah did that stuff against Bama as the primary weapon on his team. I have higher hopes for him than Clowney - though, to be fair, Clowney was Mr. August and there is no denying it.

    Ehh, college production doesn't really mean much either. Otherwise, Colt Brennan would be a surefire Hall of Famer.
