  • 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.”

    Makes me question the validity of Browner and Guy's tests too.


    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

    You are probably right, I was forgetting that the testing is handled by an outside entity.

  • 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?

    It's means the NFL is not allowed to talk about it and it should never have been public. We will probably never hear it officially from the NFL that he won.

  • Unfortunately for Richard, there are still plenty of people out there who are assuming that he tested positive, was guilty and simply got off on a technicality. I've already seen one comment saying that Richard admitted taking drugs, when that's not at all factual.

    Despite what anyone says, I think it's highly likely this whole situation is the reason some players and coaches didn't vote Richard into the Pro Bowl. He's an alternate I think, but he should have been the starter.

    I'm very pleased that the NFL was willing to admit the flawed nature of the test and throw out the result. I only hope that at some point they come up with better testing procedures.

  • 1. I am super happy Sherman will be playing.

    2. I still believe that Sherman tested positive and he got off on a technicality. Unless the second cup used to put underneath was a dirty cup of adderall urine, then Sherman's urine still tested positive.
