Drugs are powders.
Does that go for entertainers, actors, teachers, preachers, politicians, CEO's, etc? They are in that majority, I suppose. We have no idea of how many athletes are on drugs, alcohol, commit domestic violence, steal, commit adultery, etc. We only hear about a select few. Do we condemn all, or do we pick and choose?
It applies to any person who works for a business that requires drug testing. NFL is actually a pretty lenient system, it takes multiple failed drug test to get suspended. I would take issue with the NFL if this was not known before applying for the draft but players know these are the rules. If a time comes where the Union pushes to ban drug testing and owners agree then great until then they know the deal. I think people love to complicate the issue when it is pretty simple and straight forward. It is not a matter if you like the rule it is a matter of this is the rule.
Condemn? Who's condemning?
People who can't stay off drugs and won't show up for work on time get fired. Everyone has a set of rules of employment to follow which they agree to when they take that job.
What are you talking about? I'm seriously not seeing the connection between your post and mine.
Bias never sees a connection. You know that is not altogether true across the board. Our society chooses it's targets.
I don't consider using marijuana to be a 'drug issue'.
The NFL bans the use of marijuana, obvioulsly, but that's a buncha BS. There is NO WAY a player should draw a suspension for smoking/vaping/eating dope, but that's just my opinion. We'll see that change as soon as it's removed from the Schedule 1 list.

Well, in your case, I'd say your bias is incapable of determining truth. Check out your own backyard before attempting to dynamite others.
I have a lot of friends who have ruined their lives w/ it. It might be more detrimental than you're thinking.
These excuses for Irving is getting old.
You might want to go back and read your posts. No dynamite, just being selfaware.
Calling someone biased out of the blue is the height of unawareness. You might want to recheck your name calling skills and apologize. If you're truly self aware, you'll know why.
If you are offended by what I said, I apologize, but I stand by my post. It is unfair to judge anyone based on unsubstantiated evidence.
