    Hate to speculate.....ahhh why not......4 game suspension to me, without anything to proceed it, such as an arrest (that I know of) or something serious on the field, reeks of PED's

  • Four game suspensions are almost always performance enhancement drug related.

    It's a very fair prediction bases on other historical suspensions for exactly 4 games.

    That's really the big question.....was it the simple mistake of having an allergy or a cold and not checking the list before taking something or was this a more serious type of violation?

    I'm hoping it was just a stupid mistake and he learns to check the list from now on.

  • That means we have an open roster spot to add a new player as suspended players don't count against the 53. This doesn't hurt us - Guy has been inactive nearly every week anyway.

    Just spoke with Winston Guy's agent, said it is a PED violation. Said Guy took something over the counter with an ingredient on banned list.

    That was NOT on the banned list? Does that mean that the brand name wasn't on the list, but an ingredient in the drug is on the list? Or did you mean to say that it was an over the counter drug that WAS on the list?

    It wouldn't make sense to ban someone for a drug that isn't on the list....I'm sure there would be an appeal by the players association if that were the case.


    EDIT: Just saw the below post....this makes more sense now

  • I respect the fact that he won't appeal or make excuses. He made a mistake - probably an honest one and will take the punishment.

    There are so many OTC medications/supplements with things like Ephedra (not saying that this was the drug in question - just an example) in it and you wouldn't know.

    Official announcement from the Seahawks...

    Rookie safety Winston Guy has been suspended for four games by the league, it was announced today.

    The suspension was for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, the league said in the release announcing the penalty. Guy will be eligible to rejoin the team on Dec. 17.

    Guy, a sixth-round draft choice, was inactive for eight of the Seahawks’ 10 games. The team has four other safeties and 10 defensive backs total on the active roster.

  • Yet another example of Petes and Johns dumb choices.

    Have they no class or dignity? They're role models. I always tell my daughter; "see those men, ramming their heads into each other? That causes permenant brain damage. And, baby, I want you to have athletes who inflict violence and self-harm, to be who and what you aspire to become."

    Then I put my arm around her, she looks into my eyes, says "I will dad, because I love you".

    He has only been active 2 games anyway, so maybe he thought, "WTF, I might as well get pumped for next year....." :sarcasm_off:
