  • It's not simply just a piss. It's the fact it seems like Goodell is targeting certain players. I'm sure Sherman's perfectly fine with taking another test. It doesn't change the fact that these things are supposed to be random. Goodell feels like he was made to look a fool (he does that on his own), so now he's trying to get him back, so to speak.



    Hey I'm all about freedom and personal liberty and I understand that angle. I don't think it applies in this case. If Sherman doesn't want to take the test he's free to renege on his contract, walk away from his paychecks, and get another job.

    I've made this argument before but think about the kids man. If some get away with it, eventually most will get away with it to keep up, and eventually the pressure will mount on kids to keep up, most of whom will never see an NFL paycheck. THEY are the real reason why PEDs must be banned. If Sherman is clean, and if he's thinking about the kids, he should be more than happy to volunteer to be tested daily. Like I said, what the big deal? A minor inconvenience for what most of us would consider to be a pretty good gig.

    In fact, i couldnt think of a better time for the NFL to test him. Stop being pissed and thank the NFL.



    So your point is it's awesome that he is tested now because it increases his chances of getting away with cheating later. Yeah dude, right on.

    Well to be fair, you don't really care because it's just pee anyways; regardless of the implications. NVM; I fail at making points. I'll leave my initial response as a dunce cap.

  • BTW let me state that I truly presume Sherman is innocent. I'm just objecting to the freak out over him being tested again.

    He didn't say anything about Sherman having the personal liberty to take PEDS, not sure where you are getting that. However, IF Sherms test is a failure, nothing wrong with retesting.

    Again, not sure where you're coming from Clumsy. I don't think anyone in this thread has been talking about the liberty to take PEDs. We're discussing whether it's an infringement of personal liberty to have to submit to the pee test.

    I think you're the only one that thinks that is what this is about.

    it's about Goodell being stupidly transparent and trying to prove a point to the league by having Sherman tested the day his appeal was granted. This thread is basically a big eye-roll in Goodell's direction.

  • If it is part of a work contract, random pee tests are not an infringement of your rights. My husband gets randomly tested all the time at his job. He signed the agreement and he doesn't touch any non prescribed medications. Pretty simple really. He would be livid if a false positive came up though.

    Once again, I'm not talking about having to take a simple piss test. My anger stems from the blatant targeting of certain players. No ones saying they shouldn't ever have to piss test. The timing is just pretty suspicious and definitely NOT random. If the league came out and said they have to test Sherman because his last test was invalid, then fine. That makes sense. But as of right now, it just looks like Goodell's got his feelings hurt and he's going to keep trying to get his man.

    Imagine if someone messed up your piss test at a job that you adamantly claimed you're clean and should've passed. You go through all this trouble of fighting the system and standing up for yourself, and when they lose, they come at you again. And if you pass, what if they ask for another one. I mean its just pee, right. Why not have them take it every day to be sure.

    Re your scenario, if I was clean I'd love to be retested. Random or targeted, no biggie, all the better to exonerate myself at the expense of a very minor inconvenience. In fact I'd be asking for it.

  • It's not the test, it's the insult and having to continually defend yourself and look over your shoulder. I wold be livid if I got hiot with a positive and knew it was wrong, if I managed to get the facts out and clear the results only on that same day have them tell me were testing you again drop your pants I would be pissy but do it, if they came back with anotther test a week later I would be pretty pissed off and know it was not random with as many employees as they have.

    The problem is that it's hard to believe this was a random test given that it was administered the very day that Sherman won his appeal.

    Exactly. No matter what ol' Rog says or doesn't say, it's simply too coincidental to be purely random in my opinion. I see it as a pathetically childish attempt to 'get back' at Richard for what Rog and his cronies feel is him 'beating' the system when in reality it was a failure of the system that was the reason for his exoneration.

    In other words.....


    This whole situation speaks absolute volumes to me as to who Roger Goodell is as a person and a "leader". God what a pathetic, childish, small minded little beeeeotch he apparently is.

    Tin foil hats? Gtfoh. He might not have a hand in all the other piss tests, but this has his name all over it. Sherman's name just randomly popped up on the day he won his appeal. Yeah, right!

  • I do think it's rather coincidental that 3 of our DBs got tested after we spanked the cowturds, after Jerry Jones cried to the commish about our DBs. This is why I can never root for Dallas. I think the commish is in JJ's pocket. It stinks of too much of a coincidence. Just look at how much press the Cowturds get when they win just one game. It's disgusting. Big market team gets spanked by a small market team. Think about it.

  • Of course Goodell hates Sherman. Goodell hates people that can think to themselves, he wants zombies playing for him. Sherm talks too much, he exposed the NFL when talking about how the league rules are set up to allow the league to whatever they want for whatever reason they want, and then for him to threaten to sue the league. Goodell is as afraid of Sherman as he is a hard hit, Sherm is one of the few guys that can wake up all the sheep Goodell has herded to think celebrations are a bad thing, that getting fined for saluting the troops is ok, or that defenseless receivers actually exist.

  • 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

    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?

    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.
