    I wonder if Darnold's dad is taking him out for his first legal beer? I did that with my sons, and I called it the Irish Bar Mitzvah.

    I didn't say it was just sports, but athletes - the good ones - get so coddled that they merit special mention. Yes, movie stars and politicians - anyone famous - all get this treatment, but this is a forum about sports, so I focused on that.

    Surely you mean why can't these supposedly intelligent young athletes not do fucking drugs and get pissed up and go for a drive.

    They have a 10 year career if they are lucky and can earn an astronomical amount of cash in that time, enough cash to get fucked on what ever their pleasure is when they retire.

    Are they actually retarded or something, it amazes me they can pass any exams at all tbh

    I don't believe they drug test during the season. Here's the deal

    NFL players are tested for recreational drugs once a year, during a window mandated by the collectively bargained substance-abuse policy. That window opens in the spring (this year, coincidentally, it’s on 4/20) and ends early in the preseason. But largely because of the cost of dispatching drug testers, the vast majority of players are tested during training camp, when they’re all in one place. All a player usually needs to do is make sure he pisses clean by the time he reports to camp, and once he’s tested, he can smoke as much as he wants for the next year.

    I believe most of them smoke weed for pain. I do, it works. Are you a red neck, you sound angry

    Aren't they subjected to random tests throughout the season? Here's a link:

    http://www.espn.com/blog/pittsburgh...-grannys-house-nfl-drug-testers-will-find-you

    A player was tested in December.

    I doubt the NFL cares about the cost of the drug tests

    Erm, not a red neck, you don't get many of those in the UK, yeah you smoke it for pain, as good as excuse as any I guess.

    I also guess the part that smoking weed is banned for pro athletes has alluded your pot addled brain.

    The sad thing is the players have limo service available to them 24/7 365.
    The Jets have an anonymous service called Player Protect and the NFLPA offers PTL (players transportation link) to every player , current or former , also anonymous. Players can request a stretch limo, Hummer, Escalade when a party bus. There really is no excuse.

    I don’t smoke weed. I take a liquid drop that does not have much cannabis but works for pain. I would rather them smoke then drink and drive. Whatever we can agree these guys r stupid and should just stop while they athletes because it goes fast and they can wait till they retire. Weed will not be tested for next bargaining contract. Owners r just using it for next negotiation. It’s all bull shit n they all know it

    We have bigger holes than WR that need to be addressed next offseason.

    That is all my point was to begin with, when they retire they can get stoned/pissed as much as they desire, it just seems silly to me to fuck your career before it has even got going ie Herndon

    This guy is lucky to be alive.

    The State Police should be able to tell from the damage etc. whether Herndon's version of the accident is accurate. I wonder if the State Police took this accident seriously enough to bring out one of their accident-reconstruction guys? The estimated speed (100 mph) is possible but it sounds high. Be careful of speed estimates by laypersons based only on visual observation. I wonder what Herndon blew on the breath tests?.In the end, that's the most important question.
