http://blogs.seattletimes.com/seahawks/?from=stnv2The 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.”
Which makes it a real bitch that they tried to enforce the results to begin with.
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
