  • I love how you guys are arguing about this for the sake of arguing. You are COMPLETELY missing the point.

    Sherman's name was pulled in the random drug testing system MONTHS ago. The test he took was INVALIDATED YESTERDAY

    THEREFORE SHERMAN IS STILL UP TO BAT, STILL NEEDS TO TAKE THE TEST, NEVER TOOK A PROPER TEST THIS YEAR

    not sure what is so complicated with this

    This. The report is probably misleading us to believe it was "random" when actuality it is probably required due to the fact that his last test was mishandled (no pun intended).

    That would be fine. So why is it being stated as "random". Why isn't it being stated as a "make-up" test?

    Those drug tests can and sometimes ARE flawed, and I would testify to that under oath.

    And I said earlier in a post, if that's the case, I completely understand. But as of RIGHT NOW, it seems like its the league trying to get back at Sherman.

  • There was nothing stated anywhere about a re test, I still think Roger wanted a quick test to see if they could shut him down, I'll also bet the results are processed faster then normal. I know you can get them done in 24 hours based on my own expereience.

    Great by your employeer

    Have the NFL players done ANYTHING to show that they deserve to be trusted more than a piss test? Not in my mind and nor has any other athlete.
    If this was an MLB player would you take his word over a test?....

    Don't get me wrong - based on handling of the case Sherman's original test was properly thrown out. But I also think that clearly comes with at least one re-test and a heightened level of checking

  • I wonder if the NFL requires drug testing for the drug testers?

  • Sherman is clean. Even if he wasn't when he took the first test, he had to assume that another one would be coming shortly with all of the issues surrounding him. in fact I was under the impression that once a positive test occurred that the league could take following tests at will.

    In any case, the first test was invalid, so they had the right to complete a valid test on the initial random one.

  • It makes sense if one was nullified that he would be required to take another one.

    Personally, as I said, I think Sherman is clean, so I am not worried.
