Sounds like its 10 games fellas. Lock it up.

Really? Lock it up? This is just getting started.

what if the new policy gives him room to appeal again based on margin of error?

So he's either playing this Sunday or selling cars for the rest of his life. This is the conclusion I can accurately draw from the information readily available.

Jay Feely said players weren't going to get hosed by some arbitrary date. He would actually know. Gordon gets 0.

your source is an out of work kicker, he has less nfl clout than Giselle

i can just see him pounding the table saying "it is not fair" and 30 other player reps telling him S T F U kicker

You have all the major players in this thing now reporting the same ban. Its over. Its 10 games if the deal goes through. /thread

I'm gonna assume and proceed with trades under the assumption that it's 10 games at this point.

bad move

this has not taken its final twist yet I'll wager

If it's 10 games, people are going to drop him. Then he will be sitting out there until some team is close to clinching a playoff spot, then pick him up for the playoffs.

I cant imagine any league > 10 teams is dropping this guy, unless u have 1 bench spot that is. He's easily good enough to stash for 11 weeks

With BYE weeks and injuries, that will be tough. Unless you have a large bench, which we don't.

Ojaays wasn't kidding when his appeal was denied that we were just in the 4th or 5th inning. It's been a complete roller coaster since then. Bottom of the 9th now, though and it looks like the Gordonites are going to win, but it's a shallow victory b/c it entails a ten-game roster albatross.

Still though, on a PPG basis, this guy could be a real difference maker come fantasy playoff weeks. Even with three strong WRs on my squads, I'm going to hold unless someone offers me a wow trade.

Just another reminder of why:

I hate that one person, who knows little to nothing about what is really going on, says 10 games and then all these other bucket heads pick it up and start parroting. The vote hadn't even happened yet. The players could easily reject this iteration and it goes back for more negotiating. If Gordon is facing ten games under this iteration (which I'm not really site that he is) then based on the comments of Feely, an actual negotiator in this, it won't pass.

This is far from done IMO. Players won't approve if Gordon is getting more than 0.

I'm here.

I dont know what to believe.

Said all day could be 0, 8, 16

I just dont fully understand how "we'll punish you under the new policy, but wont let you free under the new policy"

even tho Henry Ford explained it. Just seems like a can of worms

Grossi: Josh Gordon - flawed policy + skewed test results = 8 game suspension? Ridiculous."

Atallah: do either of you know the details of his situation? Or of what we are trying to negotiate? Ok then.

The above seems to support the suggestion that Gordon has an infraction which hasn't been made public.

Salfino suggests that Gordon might have a violation which hasn't been made public.

Maybe Gordon did something else? What are the four offenses? That there were two plus this was very public.

https://twitter.com/MichaelSalfino/status/510529883374895104

Like I said...

Open ended.

Either yes, Gordon did something else

or

He's wondering what that numbskull Cabot is talking about. She's made a career of misinformation

I understand what the NFL is getting out of this (HGH program) but what's in it for the players? A few players get a one time suspension reduction in return for a whole new category of testing that will suspend even more players?

If all of a sudden this is Gooden's fourth violation, I don't know what to say. There could not be more reporting that this was his third.





And also, this violation is now not even a violation. As crazy it is to say, I would fade all these reports because they seem nonsensical.





@MichaelSalfino that article really doesn’t make any sense, on many levels. I’m just waiting. No point in rushing to be wrong.

If it's under the limit, how is it a 4th violation? Were all the violations under the limit?

Million dollar ? right now.

ETA: Mary Kay Cabot is almost always wrong. So who knows where the #### this will go. Regardless, I just want it all to go away. Sick of hearing about it 24/7.

Does anybody know the significance of the new rules starting on March 11, 2014? Is this an arbitrary date or something formal within the league?

Josh Gordon suspension calculation formula just released:

x = 3i(mchammered-v/~)+pi (because Josh prefers pie when he's stoned)

This is from a source close to both Washington State and Colorado so it must be ..... ohhhh, nevermind.
