It’s too bad the Bears released Anthony Adams. They could really use a pump up dance like this for the game tonight.

Props to Mike Rizzo for the video.

#TheReturn

After quite the unexplained and extremely long hiatus, I’ve decided it’s time to start back up with this whole thing. Hopefully we can get our normal followers back in the next couple of weeks. I’ll be putting up multiple posts featuring the usual (videos, sports analysis/opinion and recap).

This first post will be about the NFL, their drug policies, and the bullshit that Roger Goodell is getting away with as commissioner.

As some of you may have heard, Joe Haden, cornerback for the Cleveland Browns, has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the season after his appeal was denied for testing positive for adderall. Bryan McIntyre of Yahoo Sports wrote an article about the money that Haden will be losing for missing these four games. However that really isn’t my issue with this whole ordeal.

Now, anyone of you who have been/are/or taken adderall can understand why it would be considered a ‘Performance Enhancing Drug’, yet he was suspended even though he has had a prescription for years. When he appealed, the NFL came back saying that he should have applied for a “therapeutic use exemption.”

My issue is, why couldn’t Haden just show proof of the prescription and previous prescriptions? It’s not like he was illegally purchasing the drug off of the street. I understand that there is a large grey area with adderall and ADD, but this could have been avoided if the NFL (Goodell) had any sort of understanding in his head.

Commissioner Goodell hasn’t been shy when handing out punishments for players as we all saw with the bounty ordeal in New Orleans, but is it really fair for him to be the one investigating these issues while acting as the judge and jury as well? The answer is no. Well that is the answer of the arbitration panel in charge of the four players who were suspended by Goodell.

An article by Eben Novy-Williams and Aaron Kuriloff of Bloomber.com contained the ruling of the panel, stating,

“The panel determined that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell lacked the authority to impose discipline for unauthorized compensation, or money that might have been paid under the bounty plan. He is allowed to punish players for intent to injure opponents, the arbitrators said in a four-page opinion.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself. In closing, I understand that the NFL has tons off off-field issues with the players (DUI arrests, battery, assault, etc.) but there needs to be a new standard of how players will be punished for these acts rather than having one man give them a timeout.

Sox Fan Crying About Youkilis Trade

I love the intensity of this little kid crying over his favorite player Brent Lillibridge being traded to the Red Sox.  Brent has always been one of my personal Sox bench players, especially because he is one of the few guys on the team who updates his twitter page regularly.  No doubt that Brent is up there with ex-Sox greats Pablo Ozuna, Willie Harris, and Dwayne Wise as stand-out bench players, but Brent isn’t worth crying over.  Especially because Youk has instantly become a fan favorite in Chicago and has been killing it since he has dawned a White Sox uniform.  Since joining the Sox he is batting over .300 with 9 RBI’s, and filling the void at 3rd base which between Hudson and Morel have been the worst in the league batting at a combined .178 batting average.  As sad as it is to see Brent go, I’m glad to see someone finally stepping it up at 3rd since the departure of Joe Crede.  The scenery change has done wonders for Youk and we love having him: thanks Bobby Valentine for pissing him off.

Will Ferrell Pitching

I don’t know how I missed this, but meet Billy Ray “Rojo” Johnson, who had a brief stint as a relief pitcher for the Round Rock Express, a AAA affiliate of the Texas Rangers.  According to the team’s official bio on Rojo, he was born in East Texas but was raised in Venezuela.  He served time in prison for running a smuggling ring that imported rare and illegal species of iguanas into the United States from South America during the mid-to-late 1990s.
