    I say yes, and who to drop would depend on your roster. Honestly drop a kicker it will be announced before the start of the season allowing you to adjust if you don't want to drop the above.

  • Texas_Two_StepTexas_Two_Step Posts: 478Member, Expert Writers ✭✭

    Yes, and here is why.

    Gordon's hearing on a drunken driving charge stemming from a July arrest in North Carolina has been rescheduled for November 18th, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Spin:
    Gordon was granted a waiver that allowed him to miss Tuesday's scheduled appearance in Wake County court on charges of driving while impaired and speeding. While the wideout remained in Cleveland, his attorney was able to get Gordon's case continued until mid-November. With that situation set to unfold later this year, Gordon is currently still awaiting a ruling on his appeal of a pending season-long suspension for violating the league's substance abuse program.

    That was reported today ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  • BlueBlue Posts: 806Member ✭✭

    I a betting on a 4 game suspension, six max.

  • Texas_Two_StepTexas_Two_Step Posts: 478Member, Expert Writers ✭✭

    That is what I'm thinking. Although, what kind of PR move is that? Josh Gordon gets 4-6 games for a test that one bottle passed and the other failed, when Ray Rice knocked his now,wife, out on video.

  • BlueBlue Posts: 806Member ✭✭

    Lol I agree, but I don't mind grabbing a elite WR that late and holding him for a bit. The kid is possibly the best WR in the game right now if he didn't do stupid &%}¥. Look what be did last year with a bottom QB.

  • Texas_Two_StepTexas_Two_Step Posts: 478Member, Expert Writers ✭✭

    I got him in the 13th rd of my "Big Money" league.

  • brandonwerbsbrandonwerbs Posts: 147Member

    hmmm all makes sense. so if I were to drop someone would you drop Stills or CJ Anderson? I only have 1 kicker and Grimes is my least owned player.

  • clatch97clatch97 Posts: 147Member

    I would stash him for sure.im kinda surprised nobody else in your league picked him up off waivers yet.i would drop Anderson

    Nice, I did terrible on my WRs and had to grab him with my 10th as the only other WR I have on my bench is Maclin.

  • Texas_Two_StepTexas_Two_Step Posts: 478Member, Expert Writers ✭✭

    Anderson isn't going to make a difference.

  • brandonwerbsbrandonwerbs Posts: 147Member

    cj anderson has no use being on anybody's roster. definitely go for gordon man

  • devil_docdevil_doc Posts: 199Member, Community Writers

    I've drafted Gordon in all my leagues, and strongly support the others comments in securing him.

  • indeedindeed Posts: 862Member ✭✭

    Anderson. You have to make that happen right now.

  • BlueBlue Posts: 806Member ✭✭

    Banned for the year.... WOW

  • Texas_Two_StepTexas_Two_Step Posts: 478Member, Expert Writers ✭✭

    Can't believe it. I feel really silly.

  • BlueBlue Posts: 806Member ✭✭

    After Prater gets off a year suspension, and Ray only gets 2 games, I am shocked at this one. Seems they want to make an example of him after they botched they RR deal.

  • devil_docdevil_doc Posts: 199Member, Community Writers

    It was his 3rd offense since being in the league, on top of the DUI he got in NC. Not shocked at all.

  • clatch97clatch97 Posts: 147Member

    They said prayer was on his third offense as well I believe,and he got 4 games

  • muskrat21muskrat21 Posts: 349Member

    kinda silly bc in about a year pot will be legal. NFL needs to be ahead of legal substances not behind.

  • devil_docdevil_doc Posts: 199Member, Community Writers

    This was his second all within a year. NFL will never allow marijuana, its a business that markets to all ages. Can you imagine the backlash of that idea vs the minority that want to smoke? Yeah, I wouldn't want any part of that decision.

    Josh Gordon has not gone a calendar year since he was a junior in college without getting arrested for a substance abuse issue. Not stupid at all. He made his bed, time to go lay down in it

    I agree with this totally. However, leaving my own opinions on the issue out of it, I still drafted and held him and will continue to until I see if he files suit. I'm in the league to win it.

    Now, it's time for me to rant a bit. The NFL needs to stop testing for marijuana. It's not a performance enhancer, which is why MLB and NBA do not test for it. Secondly, it's been legalized to some degree in 23 states. Lastly, it's terrible public relations when every time you turn around another NFL player is suspended for smoking a little reefer. It's far better than the players being hooked on pain meds for injuries and such. Just for reference this is all coming from a conservative.

    To rant on my side, I am tired of the NFL taking all the heat for this. It is a COLLECTIVE bargaining agreement and the players and their union signed off on this. Quit feeling sorry for the millionaires who can't stop getting high.

    I'm not feeling sorry for anyone. I'm not sure you are reading this correctly. I'm just saying that it's bad for the league as a whole. I could care less if Gordon ever plays again. In fact, I have said that he may never get it together and have pissed away his whole career. All I was stating is that from a PR stand point it looks horrible. It's not like he knocked his wife out at a casino or anything. Is that in collective bargaining too? What kind of message is the NFL sending? A world where abusing women gets you 2 games and failing drug tests for marijuana gets you a year. Next time you want to accuse me of feeling sorry for someone have some facts in order. Bottom line, I don't care if they use marijuana, I do care if they abuse women or children. I just think the NFL has set a terrible standard. It's not a football issue, it's a societal issue.

  • Texas_Two_StepTexas_Two_Step Posts: 478Member, Expert Writers ✭✭

    Michael Schottey from Bleacher Report wrote a great article on the real drug problem in the NFL. Which condones the use of prescription pain killers as if it were your break room candy jar at the office.

  • murphysxmmurphysxm Posts: 206Member, Moderator mod

    What I was trying to point out is both the NFL and the players union created a collective bargaining agreement that has very black and white rules about drugs and knocking wives out at a casino. The NFL has no flexibility in punishments based on the agreement that was mutually signed. I don't like how the league takes all the heat, when they have no legal options. Not saying it is right, but you can't blame the league for following the rules.

  • Texas_Two_StepTexas_Two_Step Posts: 478Member, Expert Writers ✭✭

    I'm blaming the league for not setting a proper moral standard for the children who idolize these players. It's not the suspension, nor have I ever cared about players being suspended. It's the overt hypocrisy in the way the league is managed at a corporate level.

  • murphysxmmurphysxm Posts: 206Member, Moderator mod

    That is absolutely valid, you just need to equally blame the players union
