Nope. Dude just doesn't get it. Serious addict. This is his shot, IN HIS LIFE, to make millions of dollars. He can't stay sober. He tweaks his hammy on a photo shoot? It's ALL right in front of him. Spelled out in black and white. And he just can't get it.

Then isn't everyone an addict? Some people are addicted to their work, some people are addicted to food, some people are addicted to tea/coffee, some people romance, some people gardening, sleeping, alcohol. Everyone is an addict. When people remove one of them from their lives, they usually just replace it with another. Some addictions are more physically threatening than others. Some people also live more balanced lives(doing a little of everything). I don't think anyone can really escape the "addict" label though.

Well if Meridith could get his ass on the field.
Heís had plenty of time now to get in sync with Drew. Heís either not getting it done or is still injured. Donít know what to think at this point.

Get him in sign him and help keep him clean. As soon as he pops on a test you can him.

For those of you who wouldn't sign him... INGRAM.
There is a huge difference between drug abuse an addiction. Ingram is suspended for using a drug ruled to be performing enhancing. It had nothing to do with the leagues substance abuse policy. With Ingram it was a one time thing.

Apparently with Gordon he had violated the substance abuse policy on multiple occasions and has displayed behavior of someone who suffers from an addiction. All the suspensions and money in the world canít help that. In his case a behavior pattern. The only person who can help Gordon is Gordon. Apparently he either cannot or will not stick with his rehabilitation program. I doubt the Browns would have let him go if he was serious about sobriety. Itís not like they donít need all the good players they can get.

As a Saints fan I would hope you would finally know how to spell your player's name. It's not Meridith, it is Meredith. It has been bugging the crap out of me that you don't even know your players' names. With a little connection it should be a given.

We don't need the grammar and spelling police here. If that's your angle you need to find a hobby.

No. Not my angle. But if you can't even spell your player's name right how much credibility can be assumed?

Huh?

I don’t change my spell check until a player actually plays a game for us. He contributes enough for me to talk about him regularly and I’ll change it. Until then it’s not worth my time. I’m going with what’s in my phone. Meridith.
