    Wait so this Burfict guy is horrible and goes to the combine stoned, what a guy. I am shocked that Janorious wasnt one of them at least he is smart enough wow.

  2. drshakedown74 says: Apr 25, 2012 4:56 PM

    Purfict.

  3. nyyjetsknicks says: Apr 25, 2012 4:57 PM

    I don’t blame those players. The NFL/ESPN are the ones at fault for springing the combine without any notice. Pretty crappy thing to do in my opinion.

    Wonder how many GM’s, coaches, TV personalities and personnel people would pop?

    Gruden’s gotta be on something. Probably a combo of meth, ecstacy and red bull.

    What is with these guys? They’ve been playing their whole lives with hopes of going pro, and they finally get to go prove themselves at the Combines and fail their drug tests? C’mon MAN!

  6. justanotherdummy says: Apr 25, 2012 4:58 PM

    At this point you actually have to assume that Burfict doesn’t want to play in the NFL. Short of punching ol’ Roger in the jaw, I do not know what else he could do to show teams he isn’t interested.

    My guess is it’s all pot related. Could be some of the most expensive pot ever.

    No problem, memo 339 will be sent to remind everyone about memo 1 to memo 338 about disclosing confidential information. Since memo 1 to 338 were written in English, memo 339 will be written in Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, Korean, Swedish, Arabic, Chinese, Mongolian, Hebrew, Mexianese, Greek, Romanian, Hungarian, South Africanese, Nigerian, Botswanian, Fijian, Somalina, Portugese and any other language requested.

    naw janorious knew the test was coming and went to gnc to clean his urine up, the others probably didnt use a strong enuff supplement to mask that mary jane up

  10. dowhatifeellike says: Apr 25, 2012 4:59 PM

    Six guys couldn’t put the bowl down for 2 months in order to make millions. Incredible.

  11. jmagnet28 says: Apr 25, 2012 4:59 PM

    What’s so alarming about this if I’m a GM is not that they smoked weed. I would be naive to think a lot of these guys dont.

    No, this is about the level of stupidity that a player could have if he knows he’s going to be tested at the combine and he goes ahead and smokes anyway.

    Now this same chowderhead is gonna go diagnose Peyton Manning for my team?? Uh, no

  12. tlaw21 says: Apr 25, 2012 4:59 PM

    that’s some good looking cabbage I wouldn’t mind havin a bag of that

  13. willcoop62 says: Apr 25, 2012 5:01 PM

    I guess the only reason we have a privacy act is for when the players go to piss in the cup, the act itself is done in privacy, right!

  14. rangenius says: Apr 25, 2012 5:02 PM

    What drug Florio? Alcohol?

    If someone wants to smoke a little weed, so what. Florio loves Big Brother. Snitch.

  15. rdrs68 says: Apr 25, 2012 5:02 PM

    Time to end the madness-young dudes smoke the “evil weed” get over it already and demand full legalization as there are far more important issues to worry about.

    For what aids? heroin? cocaine? cuz we all know marijuana isnt a drug

  18. txxxchief says: Apr 25, 2012 5:06 PM

    And they say marijuana doesn’t make you stupid.

  19. Patriot42 says: Apr 25, 2012 5:08 PM

    We shouldn’t put these guys on a pedestal as most may be athletic but are no different than everyone else. Their parents might believe they are special but they aren’t.

  20. numba1recx19 says: Apr 25, 2012 5:08 PM

    Another case, just legalize it already…

    Six more dope heads for the dopey vikequeefs to sign. Ziggy should put a “head shop” into the plans for their new $1 billion monument to their stupidity he’s trying to burden the dummy MN taxpayers with.

    You don’t get it. Like it or not, weed is against the law and is considered a narcotic. These guys know weed is against the law and against league (and NCAA) rules, yet they STILL decided to flaunt the rules and law. They KNOW they will be tested at the Combine, yet still smoked. That just raises a flag to their intelligence level much more so than the Wonderlic test.

  27. eyezworld says: Apr 25, 2012 5:37 PM

    alot of players smoke weed. hell if they have smoked and played all their careers then why does it matter anyway. Just kidding but not really. Its the drunk people i worry about. NBA doesnt even test for weed so I don’t worry about weed smoking NFL players.

  28. evangelcomes says: Apr 25, 2012 5:51 PM

    I get these guys are moronic for using at all, for forsaking the opportunity before them. However, its just as gross to watch these coaches, scouts, and even agents, and so called media journalist leaking information for the sake of not paying a guy what his talent dictates. All these guys will catch on somewhere and may well end up with HOF careers, people won’t look back on a failed piss test. This is big business tactics, the individuals and the people around them carry the blame. But, for teams to act so highly moral, when most are clearly not is disgusting. Every NFL party like “the taste of the NFL” several fans leave driving over the legal limit, just like campaign dinners, and FOP cop events. Keep it 100

    Use spell-check you opinionated and preachy moron

  30. thewizardofbs says: Apr 25, 2012 5:56 PM

    6 players get busted at the combine and screw up their careers? Why do you think they call it dope?

  31. onderin says: Apr 25, 2012 5:57 PM

    If they are smoking weed…who cares? I don’t think any team truly cares if you smoke weed or not.

    I think they do consider it a flag if you don’t have the sensibility or foresight to stop smoking for a while in order to pass your drug test.

  32. j0esixpack says: Apr 25, 2012 6:00 PM

    It seems like the NFL might need to update their policies as more and more states are decriminalizing marijuana and passing medical marijuana bills.

    They may also need to accept that if the claim of medicinal use is made, HIPPA privacy guidelines would make any positive test private – and not something that could be shared with GMs or the public.

    If they were really concerned about player welfare they’d prohibit the more harmful drugs – albeit the legal, taxable ones like alcohol – as well. But I don’t see that happening no matter how many players get DWIs

    I can’t think of the last time I read about an NFL player getting high and killing someone – but I recall more than a few players who killed people driving drunk.

  33. curtainclosed says: Apr 25, 2012 6:39 PM

    Agree with joesixpack. HIPPA is not being enforced. Somebody needs their license(s) revoked. I don’t see how professional players don’t receive the same privacy laws as everyone else. I understand the millions of dollars at stake for G.M.s, and their respective teams. However the public does NOT have the right to these results. NFL is about to get sued to the hilt. Kiss my arse on the concussion B.S. though. These guys must be morons way before any head injuries invoked if they thought sticking there heads into a pile wouldn’t incur some sort of damage. Fark it, I blame the liberals (lookin’ at you Florio).

  34. curtainclosed says: Apr 25, 2012 6:46 PM

    I also agree that if you can’t stop smokin’ the spleef for a mere couple of months, then you have weak willpower, and as a G.M. that would tell me a lot about the commitment, or lack thereof. Again, quite a bit of money at stake.

    Stop bogarting.

  36. evangelcomes says: Apr 25, 2012 7:15 PM

  38. iikanji says: Apr 25, 2012 7:54 PM

    The headline “Six total players …” had me thinking is it possible for half a player here; a third of a player somewhere else … to be tested positive?

    I wish people would stop treating MAry Jane like it is some horrible scourge and letting it KILL people’s careers for making a safer choice than being a drunk.
    Man, college kids having their careers killed for the wrongly categorized cannibus is insanity.

  41. stevenfbrackett says: Apr 25, 2012 9:57 PM

    I wouldn’t pick anyone who tested positive if there was any reasonable alternate choice available. Not because I think marijuana is the root of all evil or any nonsense like that, but because in testing positive, in an event they knew for months in advance that they would be tested at — that player showed me the caliber of his decision making skills and self-discipline and they were both severely lacking to non-existant.

    Late breaking news from the Bengals war room……the Bengals plan on drafting all 6 players.
