    That's what's so unfair about the situation. He's not (as far as I know) even married, so he didn't even have that option available to him.

    The NFL has guidelines bargained with the NFL Players Association setting out penalties for using illegal and performance-enhancing drugs. Roger is following those guidelines in the case of Gordon.

    No one said they advocate for domestic violence. I think league should have a stricter policy on the matter. For years, the league has not given out stiff penalties for domestic violence and no one seemed to care until the Ray Rice incident that included a video (which actually didn't show us anything incriminating). Once there was a video, social media blew up and it became a PR nightmare. Where was everyone during the 85 domestic violence cases that have occurred in the NFL since 2000? Out of the 85 cases, the NFL suspended 6 players for 1 game each and only 2 players for 2 games (Ray Rice and I don't know who the other is). Unfortunately, the league was being consistent with their past domestic violence rulings. They need to publicly outline a new and stricter policy regarding domestic violence and then keep it consistent with stiffer penalties.

    How is Brandon Marshall even still playing in the league?


    3/1/2009 Denver WR Brandon Marshall Arrested in Atlanta on disorderly conduct charge after fight with fiance, spent five hours in jail. Charge dismissed.
    3/6/2008 Denver WR Brandon Marshall Arrested in Atlanta after his longtime girlfriend claimed in an affidavit that Marshall hit her in the mouth and left eye March 4. NFL suspended him one game after this, his third arrest in a year. Acquitted.
    10/22/2007 Denver WR Brandon Marshall Arrested on suspicion of drunken driving in Denver. Pleaded to reduced charge of driving while impaired, sentenced to a year of probation.
    3/26/2007 Denver WR Brandon Marshall Arrested on charges of false imprisonment, domestic violence Dropped

    Brandon Marshall has a legitimate medical condition. Josh Gordon appears to be just be a bit of a dumbass.

    He has a medical condition that causes him to beat up women?

    Maybe Gordon could say he medically needs weed.

    How much are you loving the glimpses of a healthy Percy Harvin? He has looked out of sight so far in the preseason. If he can stay healthy, it will be a game changer for the O.

    +1

    Ever since he was diagnosed and has taken measures to control it, he's been an exemplary player.

    Is it Marshall, Rice, or Gordon who has the border line?

    Brandon Marshall. He wore green cleats last year for mental health awareness day and was fined for it by Darth Gooddell.

    Love him. He made the media rounds too promoting awareness in pretty much every interview he's been a part of.

    He also said that whatever amount Darth Goodell was going to fine him for the cleats he would donate an equal amount to charity for mental health awareness.

    This is true but they only relented on letting him wear them at all because of public pressure. Gooddell is pure evil and don't you forget it.

    @RedLantern - no kidding, we saw a couple glimpses last year like that little kick off return....

    Liking the depth at receiving and rushing this year, unless they lose focus/get cocky his team looks better than last year in many ways.
