    Neither is committed to football. Can't win them which is why we got them cheap.

    A ploy to get the players to approve the CBA like reducing even further the work load in the off season. The problem is the number of players affected are minor to the number of players in the league.

    Irving is clinically psychotic.

    Gregory doesn't want anything to do with playing football.

    Owners sipping scotch hardly care about players smoking mj. Just don't go on social media and make a mockery of it (Irving).

    I'd be very surprised if neither suited up for Dallas this year.

    Drug testing policies are determined at the state level. In the state I live in, testing can only be done pre-employment or if probable cause is established indicating drug use. Random testing is not allowed.

    There are exceptions for certain 'high risk' jobs.

    It’s going to have to be a real stiff fine or there’s going to be a lot of players playing high.

    He never missed off-season workouts and in the two seasons he was available he averaged 13 games played. He was pretty productive garnering 6 sacks in a backup role in 2018.

    Watching him play he likes to compete. He clearly worked on his game.

    I wouldn't be shocked if he came back for the off-season program he would be productive.

    Nonsense. You said-

    Your argument is they shouldn't stop testing for it because they have the right to test for it. The question was why you have a problem with weed, not whether or not people have to follow company policies.

    First of all, just because the courts ruled something to be legal, doesn’t mean it’s a good policy. It’s one thing if your employees are operating heavy machinery or something like that. But in the case of the NFL, I see no benefits to suspending players for marijuana. Also, all anabolic steroids are Schedule III controlled substances, so they are not legal for the public to possess without a valid prescription.

    So if jobs started testing for alcohol in states where pot is legal, you'd be totally ok with that as well?

    lol what. the topic at hand is that the NFL would stop punishing players for smoking weed, you don't have a problem with weed, but you don't think the owners should agree to this because you respect rules?

    if they're willing to concede, and you don't have a problem with weed, why on earth do you have any objection? you sound like you snitch on your coworkers for printing off a recipe at work

    I'd leave that up to the teams to police themselves. No job supports their employees using illegal drugs. But some jobs randomly test due to liability concerns. I don't know who you work for, but I never heard of an employer randomly testing for drugs if there isn't liability concerns.

    When I was a road maintenance employee for the NJ Turnpike I was randomly tested. As a toll collector I am not. As a Verizon employee in the office I was not. As a UPS loader/unloader I was not. Never tested after initial employment. I was never randomly tested as a cashier at Pathmark. All of these employers I mentioned do have a department where they randomly drug test. They are the jobs where you actually drive their vehicles. They don't care how much a toll collector or unloader is drinking or using drugs. Yet if you're high or drunk at any of these jobs you'll get fired. Sports should be no different. There is no need to test. If they're caught using then discipline them.
