Josh Gordon Everything Thread

Recommended Posts

so a bit of second hand smoke is worth 10 games, wife beating is worth 6 games, and child endangerment is probably nothing.

Lesson here is that it is better to beat your wife and kids to blow off a little steam, than to hang with the fellas who may be smoking a bit o'weed.

Can you guys afford to stash him for 9 more weeks?

Nope. I don't typically like to hold guys that aren't playing. Jordan Reed is burden enough right now sitting on my team. Traded Gordon. Hope I don't regret it.

Absolutely. Why not?

All my leagues have 6 bench spots, and other than a bye week for my QB, I never carry a backup QB. I don't carry a backup TE, K or backup DST. My K and DST will hit the waiver wire when their bye weeks come up. I can afford to drop a Latimer, Austin, Crowell, etc., to keep Gordon all year.

So what happens if he goes to court in october and is convicted of a DUI. Would it be 10 games suspend, BYE week & 2 for the DUI? Does it look like you can start him 3 games IF you make the playoffs (for those with playoffs weeks 14, 15, 16)? Will the two game suspension for first time offenders be changed under the new rules as well? Also, all of these reporters have mentioned just about every number between 0 and 16 for number of game suspensions. It seems like these nerds are just rolling their polyhedral dice and calling it news.

I think so too

Aren't your end of the bench guys so that by say, week 10 some backup becomes an instant starter and possible upside as you finish the season and head into the playoffs?

If I may (Clevelander here FWIW):

The next story Mary Kay Cabot breaks will be her first - widely regarded throughout Cleveland media as a nincompoop. Frozen out by the team on real news, I believe she is a propaganda machine used by the Browns to do their bidding. The Browns news I get from her is almost always via other sources not named Mary Kay. Doesn't mean she's wrong though, to be fair.

If its 10 games and I am Gordon I sue and get a temporary injunction. The Hail Mary. Believe he can hit the field if judge agrees.

Ps:

If someone can name these 4 apparent violations, thatd be great

3 has been the number by ALL media and ALL personalities up to now.

Magically it's 4 today

Thanks

This is from the 7/9/13 RW & CPD:

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Josh Gordon is already in Stage 3 of the NFL's drug program and is now one failed drug test away from a one-year suspension.

Gordon's February failed drug test for codeine was his "second strike," suggesting he either failed another drug test before that, or entered the NFL already in the league's drug program. The codeine test vaulted Gordon into Stage 3. As Browns beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot writes, "One more failed test and Gordon's storybook NFL career could be in serious jeopardy." Players suspended for one year under the substance policy can apply for reinstatement after the year is up. For now, Gordon is only suspended for Weeks 1 and 2.
I don't have the knowledge on this stuff that others here have. Does Stage 3 mean there were 3 violations by that point?

I wonder if "hmmm.....interesting" is his reaction to immediate reinstatement as Jay Feely assured us unequivocally....You know on account of he's the best source yet and all.

Ian Rapoport@RapSheet 4m

It is RT @JOSH_GORDONXII: Hmm.. Interesting..

Anybody want to take a stab at that and guess it's meaning?

Means he is hearing reports of 10 games before he has been told anything...or he was told something different and is pissed...

either way 10 games is a loss for me...We pay biggest $ to season winner..playoff winner gets money back.

If she's wrong I hope she gets fired.

He goes to court right around the time he'd be getting back from this suspension.

Are there any reports theres a vote going on today? Like a likely chance its not gonna get delayed?

The conference call with the player reps allegedly started at 5:30 PM EST. So I'm assuming we will know something soon.

To make myself feel better, when I find out the terrible news that Gordon is back for the fantasy playoff, I'm gonna go thru the thread, and look up all the trolls they have been proven wrong.

Regarding the DUI, was his first offense for another DUI (I honestly don't know). If not the way I read the report was that the first DUI didn't bring a suspension, just entrance into a program.

Regardless, Gordon can easily delay the DUI date if he decides to. Living in NC, I know a few people who received DUIs years ago that still haven't been resolved.

As for the suspension, if 10 games is the number, that's a tough one. The only leagues I own him in are two dynasty leagues (where I'll keep him for sure) and I a two person keeper, where I have a feeling it will be a battle to make the playoffs. He's a 9th round keeper next year though, so it makes my decision to keep him a little easier. If it was a straight redraft and I was in a battle to make the playoffs, I'd probably sell him now.

Players who will be immediately reinstated upon expected approval of revised drug policy, can play this weekend, per sources. @ESPNNFL










Once player reps vote within hour or so, names of those reinstated players will be made public. In double-digits not expected to exceed 20

@ProFootballTalk 51s

Per source, NFLPA player reps are having a heated discussion about drug policy. No guarantee it passes.

Hahah, this is what I had been predicting today on Twitter. These things ALWAYS look really close, then end up getting stalled over and over again.

He went undrafted in my 10 team shark league. I picked him up on waivers and will look to trade him to someone else to hold onto and wait for his late season return.

I have Calvin and D. Thomas as my 1-2, so I'm leveraging Gordon for a better RB.

I wish it had been more games, but someone will bite :thanks:
