Good riddance.


Three high picks? Seems to me, on the whole, we got better than we gave. I don't disagree in the slightest with the rest of the post.

Referring to Coates (3rd), Schuster (2nd), and Washington (2nd). All are tied to him. If he maintained his role as a solid 2 and not messed up, they would have been used elsewhere instead of for WR damage control. He had 9 lives worth of chances, IMO.

Edit: I can concede on the Washington pick, because Martavis might have not been here this year because of what would have been free agency for him had he not been suspended.

Does that make a difference in any way?



If this violation came up before he was traded, yeah I could see the Raiders having a problem with that.....

They could argue that he smoked WHILE he was a Steeler.

Who knows, but until it comes out yeah, it matters.


Luckily James Harrison cannot be fined and suspended next season. That must really make Roger the Clown upset.

I think most are more than happy to have JuJu over this bonehead, thank you...

That was kind of my point. I don't think the trade could have happened if he had already failed, nor can I really see how PIT would have knowledge of a pending failure. If that were the case, PIT would just forfeit it's 2019 R3 pick - Roger makes all this shit up as he goes along.

Also, I was thinking about Bell and figuring there might be some justifiable reasons for a missed test seeing as how he's just switched teams and moved. If it's just a missed test, he'll probably get a few games but he's not getting the book thrown at him.


What are you talking about? A missed test is a failed test. There is no lightweight punishment. Bells was lighter because he hadn't repeated like Bryant. He wasnt at the same severity level. Bryant will be facing a year, if not continual suspension pending application for readmission.

And now it's being reported it isn't for a failed or missed test. It might be failing to meet a counselor or clinician or something...

That's what I'm thinking. Which is still incredibly stupid on his part given the stakes.

If he didn't adhere to what was spelled out in the terms of his reinstatement from last year he could definitely be suspended again.

He switched teams and, I assume, moved. Shit happens when you move across the country.

Whether he gets suspended and/or how many games is going to depend on how responsible he is for whatever was missed. He could have given new contact info to the NFL and they could have screwed it up when trying to schedule a test for him. It's not a black and white issue.

Fantastic News!
Good job Martavis Bryant. Credit where it's due.

A Raiders source has a lot of explaining to do!
Report: Raiders' Bryant didn't fail or miss drug test

At this point, he has zero excuses. Zero. He has millions of dollars on the line and has been given one last chance after failing multiple drug tests before becoming Justin Blackmon and fading to obscurity.

I doubt Goodell will accept "shit happens" as an excuse for not holding up his end of his reinstatement. :lol: I mean, he's been having excuses made for him going to back to Clemson. If he blew off meeting with a therapist/shrink or didn't set up something new with his move to Oakland then that's on him and whatever the NFL decides to do is his own fault.

Everything is conjecture right now. No confirmation of a violation. We're now hearing no failure took place. With as slow as all of this is coming out, it seems best to let the facts come to light.

Is reading comprehension really that difficult?

If the league, or somebody else, fucked something up he doesn't need an excuse...because then it wasn't him that fucked up. He won't get suspended because a counselor or the NFL screwed up in communicating with him. That would be beyond ridiculous if he did.

And the point I've been making all along.....is that missed test or whatever, YOU DON'T KNOW IT WAS HIS FAULT.

Why would you give the benefit of doubt to Bryant? This is a guy who was constantly in trouble at Clemson and was suspended for a bowl game, suspended four games for failing MULTIPLE drug tests and forced the Steelers hand to draft Coates, then was suspended an entire year for failing MORE tests and lied to his QB in the process. Then this past year was a complete distraction, was a piece of shit teammate when Juju was drafted, was demanding a trade in the middle of a season where the team trying to compete for a SB, and now is rumored to have not upheld some portion of his reinstatement, whatever that may be, and you're first thought is "I MEAN PROBABLY THE NFL FUCKED UP, MOVING IS HARD AND SHIT HAPPENS!" Jesus dude.

And BTW, what you posted a page ago about Goodell possibly taking the Steelers third round pick in 2019 and giving it to Oakland is the most off base thing I've read on this board this offseason. Literally 0 chance of anything like that happening. I don't know where you are coming from on any of this.

jesus fucking christ....way to double down on not comprehending basic English AFTER being called out for it.

Go back and re-read what was actually said and stop posting stupid strawman arguments. I'm not giving Bryant the benefit of the doubt, I'm simply not assuming as fact the reason why behind a speculative rumor. Pull your head out of your ass, seriously.

Let me dumb it down for you....that post about Goodell was assuming IF the Steelers knew about Bryant (I spelled it out for the intellecutally challenged who didn't realize it was a hypothetical a few posts later, which you apparently didn't read, either). And, yes, Goodell can and has done whatever the fuck he wants regardless of precedent or consistency.

:lol: This is coming from the guy who said if the Steelers knew about whatever Bryant may have done that the trade with the Raiders would then be “null and void.” :lol: Look at the brains on this guy, wow.

Keep on defending Bryant with more dumbass hypothetical takes. "What if the NFL didn't have his correct email, it wasn't actually martyfarty69@comcast.net, it was really supposed to be martyfartyhadsomepotty@steelerfury.com, surely our dear Martavis is not to blame!" Either way, he's not a Steeler anymore (thank God) so it really doesn't matter. He can do well or ruin his career for all I care.

Didn't Leveon Bell once use the "my phone number changed" excuse? :lol: Bryant is and has always been a fck up with amazing speed and size. If somehow he manages to escape this, it won't matter, he'll screw up down the line. To be honest, even his athletic ability is in decline.

Getting a 3rd for him is highway robbery.

I don’t think he’s even Josh Gordon talent wise. These two in a smarts competition might be worth a watch. Their both morons with major issues. Dumbfucks will both lose their shot to stick around.

This is a beyond awful comparison...Gordon has always been more talented and could be scary good this year.

So you're saying we should trade for Gordon then since Bryant is gone? :lol:
