    David Vobora suspended 4 games

    Vobora Suspended Four Games
    Tuesday, September 29, 2009

    Rams linebacker David Vobora was suspended by the NFL on Tuesday for a violation of league policy involving performance enhancing substances. The following is a statement from coach Steve Spagnuolo on Tuesday afternoon.

    “Dave’s situation is unfortunate, said Head Coach Steve Spagnuolo. “He has been a vital part of our team, and we are disappointed that we will be without him for the next four games. However, we respect the League’s decision in this matter.”

    If Spags announces he is "Just going to the corner store for some cigarettes" will someone please follow him and make sure he comes back?

    Re: David Vobora suspended 4 games

    I'd like to know just WTH is the NFL's drug policy anyhow?

    If a substance an be bought at any supplement shop IE

    GNC, Vitamin World, FitRx, etc.... it should be legal.

    I hae no clue what he took, but apparently tons of over the counter supplements are banned-- and that's ridiculuous.

    David Vobora. Really? I thought since he developed a close friendship with the good character guy Chris Long, David would learn a good work ethic. I guess I was wrong....C'mon Vorbora.

    Re: David Vobora suspended 4 games

    somehow i get the feeling if Vobora played for someone Goodell was in bed with..like mountain climbing pal Junior (Mora) or his pals in NE,Minnesota etc...this suspension would be delayed until a hearing..then conveniently brushed under the carpet, like the infamous "Walsh tapes" etc...


    yes i know that sounds like paranoia...but i find something seriously creepy about Goodell and believe his "im gonna clean up the NFL "stance only applies to teams that aren`t on his love list..

    Wow. Lets just hope that "it's always darkest before the dawn" holds true and we smack the *****.

    Boller goes down blocking on an INT, (or for Jackson again), and Null comes in a pulls a Fitz.

    (I read a lot of science fiction as a kid).

    Although, I'm pretty relaxed about this year - got royally pissed watching the Seattle game, but did enjoy the Skins and Packer games. There IS a difference, but patience seems to be in short supply in Rams nation, (me included), and for good reason.

    i have thought despite the promising play at SLB of Vobora that Grant would once fully fit,win back that spot..i guess we will find out in the next 4 games.

    I guess we can be happy that it was a performance enhancing substance and not pot or some other recreational drug. Happy in the sense that his interest is in performance improvement. Unlike some of our other suspendees of the past.

    STupid irresponsible behavior. I have no sympathy for the guy. This isnt a legality issue (ie what is sold in gnc), its a collective bargaining issue. THe banned substances are clear. its up to the players to read the labels of what they take. How hard is that?

    Ramming speed to all
