    Stupid is as stupid does. I think several million dollars would motivate me to quit any type of illicit drug.

    Unless he was stoned/hungover during a game, this seems like over-kill.

    Remember that these are escalating. Each time he gets busted the penalty gets longer. I can't remember his history, but I'm guessing this is at least a third time, and probably not pot.

    I was wrong above;
    I know anti-opiate politics are the big thing now, but I would hope legal use of a prescribed opiate would not generate a 2 year suspension.

    No wonder he went from the best season of his career to the worst.

    Me too, but since no one is offering me $millions, I'm going to have to stay the course.

    Interesting timing. I bet more than half the league has violated the drug program. Sounds like the league just needed a fall guy.
