Friend of a friend of a friend told me Santonio failed another drug test and will be suspended 4 games at the start of next season. That's why we signed El and Battle. Not 100% sure its true so take it for what its worth. This offseason has been awesome so far :wft

maybe that will make Santonio more signable when his contract expires? sorry, trying to find a silver lining here...

but i do hope your cousin's brother's niece on your father's side is wrong... :D

Oh that's why Randle El said he was brought in to be the #3. :wink:

If this is true...Holmes should be traded.

Doesn't seem so bad in lieu of the Ben accusation.

As long as Tone is around come playoff time, we're ok.

The Ravens sign Boldin and we have 1 about to retire, 1 whose coming back to play slot and return punts, 1 who can't catch and probably will be gone after this season and 1 who just can't stop rocking the ganj... I'm glad we have Wallace. :P

I don’t know…Adam Shefter reported that inside the Steelers FO (ownership in particular), they are extremely upset over Ben’s latest situation. I can imagine they will be livid over a second dirty test on Santonio. Think about it.

If this is true, he probably did just move up Mike Browns big board because he'll be cheaper.

But you guys are the ones that did draft him, and he definitely had baggage coming out of college. All teams sign players with questionable ethics. Mike Brown just does it more often than most...

Yeah anything is possible. Everyone knows I'm a Holmes fan but here we can agree...he has an issue. He can't stay off the ganja for any length of time. Amazing. And by now I wouldn't be shocked if the FO is fed up.

No one will give up more than a 7th for a WR with a bad case of the dropsies. But, I would say any interested partner will just wait for his release.

Bring Limas to camp, let him compete and show his skills, then decide. Maybe at least he'd show trade value. I hope Tomlin and coaches work with him to motivate him to at least compete here.

Camp and practice isn't Sweed's problem.

I always felt he couldn't do enough to make up for the past. Regardless of how many TD's he catches fans will always talk up his drops.

I really hope he catches on somewhere else and has a good career. I would hate for him to leave the NFL without any success.

It's like Bettis and the fumble... if we lost that game his whole legacy and future changes.

Redemption, as a Steeler, might be the sweetest success he could achieve. I'm rooting for him, in any case.

Holmes has never done drugs per his website (1/30/09 article): :shock: :Blah

“Everybody that knows me knows I have never done drugs,” Holmes said yesterday. “I have never failed a drug test. I just happened to have it in my vehicle at the time. Someone else was driving it.”

I thought it was pretty ridiculous how some on this board were condemning Ben after the initial reports of his latest meltdown came out. At least in that case there were reports. From legitimate media sources, the team, and the police.

This thread is full of people ragging on Holmes based on a story SN1 heard from "a friend of a friend of a friend". :shock: Are you kidding me? Did I miss something more quasi-official?

Just because it fits with the Randle El story doesn't make it true. It may very well wind up being true. But until it at least looks like it might be true...STFU people!

some guys like to make sure every post they make is factual, punctuated and doesn't contain the word never, always or use percentages that are 100% accurate.

others don't care, iike to debate the rumors and hot off the presser stories.

if Holmes isn't in trouble we are happy... the thread dies and another one is born.

When players are tested during the offseason, unless they are in the substance abuse program, it is for performance-enhancing drugs. ...

It makes perfect sense for Holmes to get tested since he was busted for weed.

Players do get tested in the offseason. Granted this story is about roids, but same goes for drugs.



The NFL and its players' union have agreed, for the second time in recent weeks, to toughen the league's steroid policy. The new measures triple the number of times a player can be tested for steroids during the offseason, add substances to the league's banned list and allow the league to retest players' urine samples for new designer steroids that may have gone undetected in previous tests, an NFL spokesman said yesterday.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/ar ... Apr27.html (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A18627-2005Apr27.html)


Especially someone like Holmes who probably already is in the drug testing program for past issues, would probably get tested multiple times in the offseason...

I know SN1 is a degenerate gambler and a face painter, but I'm pretty sure that he wouldn't
post this "rumor" about Holmes unless he trusted the source. Given Holme's past, I'm willing
to give SN1 the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Hopefully the source is wrong, or maybe since there's been no official announcement the
final decision on the suspension hasn't been made, or maybe they're waiting until camp to
make an announcement.

I just hope we can all get back to gambling and face painting soon. This off season is
turning into the Simpsons "Homer At Bat" episode.

Are positive tests not announced until a later date or what?

I wasn't trying to insinuate that the players weren't tested in the offseason, was just asking.
