    Dumb question but is he not allowed to play until his appeal has been heard by the league? Due process and all....

    Yes, the sentence has already been handed down, the appeal is just that, an appeal of the conviction. Does a person get to stay out of jail until an appeal of their conviction is heard? Nope. Here's what I've heard -- the reason he is in the NFL's drug program is because he has failed at least two tests, but it sounds like that happened in 2011. This suspension may very well be because he missed a couple of tests, rather than tested positive again. But in the league's eyes, a missed test is the same as a positive one. So, one missed test, four games. If he missed two, that's where the six games is coming from. But I think what the Broncos are arguing is that he was overseas on some USO tour, which caused him to miss one of those.

    Six-game ban likely for Von Miller

    In the test that triggered the suspension, multiple sources say Miller was flagged for a "diluted sample." It happened after Miller was asked to provide a test before an offseason workout/practice and the sample was spilled, by Miller, before it was given to the collector. Miller was then asked at that time to provide another sample and he could not.

    He then participated in the workout, drinking fluids throughout the activity. Miller then provided a sample that was used in the test following the workout.

    At the meeting with NFLPA officials Thursday in Washington, D.C., multiple sources say discussions were held over whether to challenge Miller's positive test in 2011, for marijuana and amphetamines, as part of his appeal. The flagged samples came following the NFL lockout that kept players away from team facilities until training camp opened. Miller has also argued prescribed medication provided the positive result for amphetamines.

    I'd disagree considering it wasn't performance enhancing drugs.

    No, the difference is Merriman was only the player he was because he was 'roided out. Von Miller is the real deal, make no mistake about it. He is twice the player that Merriman ever hoped to be.

    The suspension will be cut to ensure he doesn't miss the Dallas game

    I have no idea how whatt players did in the middle of the 90's has any impact whatsoever on what the players on this current team will do.

    unless you're claiming that because players they play for the cowboys, they therefore will always have players participating in "white house" type events?

    I wasn't "claiming" anything. I was making light of the situation. CALM DOWN buddy, take a deeeeeeep breath. Someone said something about there being a possiblility of a Cowboys guy smoking weed. I was basically saying YEP, then I was reminded of the "white house"......If you want to find something relevant to argue about, fine...Not a joke...LOL

    got no sympathy for any idiot that risks his career doing that stupid junk. Does not matter whether its cool or not; does not matter whether its legal or not. It is against the league policy as agreed in the CBA and any moron that takes anything prohibited deserves suspension.

    Nope, if anything, that happened back in 2011, which is why he is currently in the NFL drug program. Pretty sure his possible suspension is not because of a positive test, but possibly because of missing a couple of tests or counseling sessions.
