  • Well, Sherman played it perfectly, just like everything he does. I still believe that he did not take PED's. He was consistent in his denials, but he knew just denying it was not a winner, and that he he to fight on the 'chain of custody' front.

    Well done Sherm, well done.

    It's not like Sherm is Chancellor. No one is worried about him knocking their head off, so I doubt they are scared for their safety. Though getting open and actually catching a ball will be an issue.

  • Just think. Sherman, a player who thrives off disrespect and doubters (dude took being a 6th rounder like the biggest insult ever), got snubbed for the Pro Bowl, and just got reason to have an EVEN BIGGER chip on his shoulder. LOVE IT!

  • More confirmation..........

    http://blogs.seattletimes.com/seahawks/?from=stnv2

    The NFL does not disclose results of a failed test until the suspension is imposed. As a result, the NFL has no statement currently on the case. But Albert Breer — who works for NFL.com — indicated that flaws in the testing procedure invalidated the result. Washington Post reporter Mark Maske spoke to someone familiar with the case, who called Sherman’s argument “a slam-dunk winner.”

    Me too...especially if any of them were tested at the same time. Either way, I am glad they played it safe and had Browner take his, so we weren't going to be without both for the same period of time.

    Bullshit Schefter. It was a "slam dunk winner". Your tweet makes it sound like a great attorney pulled a rabbit out of her hat. She was a great attorney alright but not in the way I get the feeling you are insinuating. If I'm wrong, so be it but..............

    Sorry this doesn't make sense. The NFL just gets the results from the lab back and if it is positive they suspend the player. Then Sherman appealed outlined what had happened and somehow it was probably collaborated by the lab or the tester and that made it a slam dunk. Like several of us said here if he can prove a broken seal no way that he gets suspended.

    This was handled exactly the way this should be handled EXCEPT for the fact that the positive test shouldn't have leaked to the media

  • I am happy about him finally getting justice. There were some who said he should just admit it, take the suspension or will never win his appeal. I applaud him for standing up and going through this and not let it affect his game. I feel players should not face situations like this, the league should have common sense rules over testing. Being a multi billion dollar industry, I am not sure why they don't have tamper proof testing process?
