New England Patriots Linebacker Brandon Spikes Suspended For Violating NFL’s Substance Abuse Policy

December 10, 2010 2 comments

ESPN – New England Patriots rookie linebacker Brandon Spikes has been suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs, the team announed on Friday.

“The substance was a medication that I should have gotten clarification on before taking,” Spikes said in a statement. “It was not a performance enhancer or an illegal drug. The integrity of the game is very important to me. I understand the league’s ruling and apologize to my teammates, the fans and the Patriots organization for this mistake.” Continue Reading…

Linebacker Brandon Spikes has been suspended by the NFL for 4 games after he violated the league’s substance abuse policy.

The rookie linebacker will be missed by the New England Patriots who have emerged as the Superbowl favorites.

Spikes, who will only miss the regular season, wants us to think he didn’t take any performance enhancing drugs or any illegal drugs.

The only other violations are abuses of prescription drugs or alcohol. Yea…I doubt it

C’mon Son!!

You sound like David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez using the “I don’t know what I took” excuse.

When are professional athletes going to man up and admit it when they are caught using steroids??

Brandon Spikes will miss the last 4 games of the 2010 NFL regular season.

Randy Moss Is Waived From The Minnesota Vikings After Explosive Postgame Comments

November 1, 2010 1 comment

SportsIllustrated – The Minnesota Vikings have waived receiver Randy Moss.

Linebacker Ben Leber says coach Brad Childress informed the team that Moss had been let go during a team meeting Monday afternoon. Contine Reading…

Randy Moss has been waived by the Minnesota Vikings today, a day after a 28-18 loss to the New England Patriots on Halloween.

See you later Randy Moss...or maybe not

His postgame comments are obviously the reason Randy Moss was waved.

Brad Childress already has to deal with a prima donna in Brett Favre. I can’t defend Randy Moss here, he asked for it.

Moss first said he will conduct his own interviews for the rest of the season because they fined him $25,000.

Then he praised the Patriots captains, Wilfork, Brady, Mayo, and Faulk. His comments conveyed an obession with the way the Patriots do things.

All of this before he talked about his dissapointment in the Vikings players and coaches for not listening to him in preparation for the Patriots.

It was like he was campaigning for the New England Patriots even giving Belicheck a salute at the end with “I love you guys, I miss yall.”

And in case you didn’t know; he only caught 1 pass for 8 yards in the entire game against the Patriots.

Junior Seau Gets Arrested For Domestic Violence & Drives Off A Cliff The Same Day

October 18, 2010 Leave a comment

ESPN – Junior Seau drove his SUV off a cliff and landed close to the beach in Carlsbad, Calif., early Monday morning after the former All-Pro linebacker was arrested.

He escaped major injury. Continue Reading…Junior Seau was arrested around midnight for domestic violence when his 25-year old live-in-girlfriend called police at 10 pm. She was reported to have minor injuries that did not need medical attention.

Did Junior Seau get high or drunk, or did he attempt suicide?

He made bail at 3 am, a few hours before he apparently drove off a cliff in Southern California.

And there are only two ways he could have driven off a cliff.

Drugs or Suicide.

Seau had to be worked-up and distraught over what the arrest would do to his well-protected public image. He founded the Seau foundation raising money for drug awareness, child abuse prevention, and college scholarships and has always been highly respected by the NFL and it’s fans.

Seau could have done what most of us do when we feel bad. Take a large dose of our drug of choice. Liquor, coke…who knows. He could have then drove off the cliff by accident from being too intoxicated.

Or Seau could have been trying to take his own life away for bringing shame upon his name and disrespecting his family.

Either way, I hope he gets better.

Randy Moss Traded Again: Is Randy Moss Officially A Problem?

The New England Patriots have traded Randy Moss and a 2012 7th round draft pick to the Minnesota Vikings for a 2011 3rd round draft pick.
Randy Moss Goes Back To Minnnesota

New England Patriots coach Bill Belicheck said the usual, he made the decision for the “best for our football team.” 

Minnesota Vikings coach Brad Childress said Moss “can still go downtown and get the football, which is a stand-alone factor.” And Brett Favre called him a Hall of Famer.
 
I’m surprised the New England Patriots would have the balls to trade Randy Moss this season. I’m also surprised his antics had to come down to him being traded.

 

Randy Moss has been a problem for a minimum of half his career. He was traded from Minnesota in the first place for attitude problems and quickly traded from Oakland..for a 6th round draft pick. 

He got into a “heated exchange” with the quarterbacks coach Bill O’Brien at halftime in the win over the Miami Dolphins and also had an egregious postgame interview after the week 1 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.

For all of this hype, I must say Moss got over on this deal. 

Moss gets to become the highest paid wide receiver in the NFL, go back to the team that started his career, play for a superbowl-caliber team in the Vikings, and play with his rival and 3-time MVP Brett Favre.

The New England Patriots give themselves a better chance of winning this season because the team will rally around their leader Tom Brady. Tom Brady can easily turn a no-name receiver into an All Pro like he did with Deion Branch and Wes Welker among others. And  the Pats do get a 3rd round pick to build on because no matter what they weren’t winning a Superbowl this year.   

The Minnesota Vikings get a top 5 wide receiver and a 7th round pick. They should now be the favorites to win the Superbowl. The Vikings were one bad interception away from being in it last year and now they are a better team.

Is Randy Moss a problem?

The Miami Dolphins Fire Special Teams Coordinator After Losing Bad

SportsIllustrated – The Miami Dolphins fired special teams coordinator John Bonamego on Tuesday, only 12 hours after a calamitous prime-time performance against the New England Patriots.

The Miami Dolphins Fire Special Teams Coach John Bonamego

Special teams cost Miami 21 points in a 41-14 loss Monday night. Two blocked kicks led to touchdowns, and the Patriots returned a kickoff 103 yards for another score. Continue Reading…

Special teams coach John Bonamego was fired on Tuesday Oct. 5, 2010, 12 hours after the special teams cost the Miami Dolphins 21 points in a 41-14 loss to the New England Patriots.

I have to agree with Tony Sparano’s decision after witnessing that special teams debacle on Monday. The Dolphins defense and offense played well enough for them to win the game.

Tony Sparano is lucky it was only the fourth game of the season.

In case you missed MNF, here is the justification for firing Bonamego.

Randy Moss Postgame Interview After Week 1 Victory

Memo to Randy Moss: New England sports fans do not like it when black athletes speak their mind.

The Randy Moss & Tom Brady Honeymoon may be over

I feel bad for the Patriots wide receiver but I gotta say he should have seen this coming.

Tom Brady, the “Golden Boy”, got his contract extension and that’s all that matters to Patriots fans and the Kraft family.

Randy Moss has shown throughout his career that he has no problem whining, complaining, and sometimes just not playing at all if he doesn’t get his way.

If the Patriots plan on winning a Superbowl they have to make their best playmaker happy and give him a contract extension, but that probably won’t happen.

Tom Brady Signs Contract Extension- Is He Now Overpaid?

Tom Brady & Peyton Manning

 CBS – A day that started badly for Tom Brady turned out to be a pretty good one after all.

After a morning crash left Brady’s car damaged but the New England Patriots quarterback unhurt, he came to terms on a contract that will make him the highest paid player in the NFL. Continue Reading…

$72 million dollars!! $18 million a year??!! 

On Jan. 25, 2010, at a charity event, Tom Brady said “I think we’re way overpaid as it is, all of us,”

Let me get this straight.

Brady thinks he’s overpaid, but then becomes the highest paid player in the NFL??

I know Brady is a legend and I have seen his skills first-hand, but let’s face it, Brady is no longer a top-tier quarterback.

Patriots players are expected to take less money to play for a “winning team.”(think Randy Moss, Richard Seymour, Asante Samuel and more). 

But the “The Golden Boy”, who may still have a bum knee, will be paid more money than both Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, quarterbacks who now play at a higher level than him.

The Pats desperately needed to give him less money so that they could use the extra money to build a Superbowl team again.
