    Someone was kind enough to pass this on to me. A hoax site that sounds to me like someone is trying to sabotage a fantasy football draft or selection.

    It claims 16 players were suspended by the league for substance abuse - and NONE were Cowboys! :D

    The page is well done, tho..it might fool a few. I don't think that's the way Seymour spells his name, tho. :rolleyes:

    The NFL has reportedly suspended 16 more players for violation of its substance-abuse policy. The Associated Press reported that of the 16 names 12 are starters on their respective teams. While an official announcement is expected from NFL Commissioner, Paul Tagliabue at a formal press conference Tuesday morning, the respective coaches have already been notified. Players that are rumored to be on the suspension list are: Vikings QB Daunte Culpepper, Raiders WR Randy Moss, Chargers RB Ladainian Tomlinson, Dolphins rookie RB Ronnie Brown and WR David Boston, Browns RB William Green, Denver RBs Tatum Bell and Mike Anderson, Eagles DE Javon Kearse, Colts WR Reggie Wayne, Patriots DE Richard Seymore and Panthers DE Julius Peppers. The others on the suspension list include Patriot LB Dan Klecko, Seahawks DE Joe Tafoya, Buccaneers CB Juran Bolden and Raiders T Chad Slaughter.

    The report states that the players named will be suspended for the first four regular-season games without pay. For Cleveland RB William Green, the penalty may be more severe. He was suspended for violating the same league policy during the 2003 season and was forced to sit out 4 games and enter a diversionary program. Miami WR David Boston falls into the same fate as this would be his second violation.

    The suspended players will be allowed to attend team meetings and work out, but they can't practice with the team during their suspensions. The league changed a rule this season to allow suspended players to participate in some club functions. Under terms of the collective bargaining agreement, all NFL suspensions are confidential. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello would only confirm the suspensions.
