    What's with the one game stuff for substance abuse. The CBA calls for 4 games. Does Goodell have the option to drop it down if it's something minor.

    He (like Watkins) probably violated the rule in a different way. Indirectly.

    Was wondering this as well. What is with all these one game deals. And Fisher was very political about it but you could tell he thought Rok's suspension was bullcrap. Wonder if this is for the same thing? Is Goodell waiving his power around again?

    I wonder if Fish will publicly come-out against this suspension, as he did with Rok's?

    The violation was for substance abuse. Read marijuana or similar drug. PEDS is a 4 game suspension. ROK's was probably for the same reason.

    My daughter is helping with this post. First one on this board. I'm from The Rams Huddle. May it rest in peace.

    I'll try again this weekend. :hehe:

    I'll be trying all these Smileys BTW. We only had a few of them at the Huddle.

    Just got a message about a new post but I don't know how to read it without losing this post. Oh well. :lol:

    GO RAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hope this doesn't have an impact on him emotionally, or if it does it's to the positive.

    I'd imagine it's weed too. Another part of having a very young team. Don't they have a heads up before they get tested for weed and the small crap?

    Is LesBaker the same Leslie from the Huddle? If you're not him then thanks for the welcome new friend. :bg:

    If you are him then it's good to see old friends! :sure:

    So you can't reply to an individual? Neither one of us could find anything but add a reply.

    To username:
    I wouldn't imagine you'd get a heads up before any test. I think they just throw a wide net whenever they take a sample. Pot's a positive for 30 days after use.

    GO RAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not good news at all. I hope we can get further details later on.

    Pead needs to stay focused or he's going wind up behind the rotation again...and possibly find his way off the team eventually. Come on dude!
