    Re: Rams LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar suspended four games for violating PEDs policy

    Very disappointed in Dunbar. He was a guy who contributed heavily last season, and now thanks to his short-sighted stupidity he's hurt both himself and the team. Hopefully Witherspoon has something left. One can't assume the guy is the same player now that he was several seasons ago for us. I'm not a happy man.

    Fisher should suspend him an additional two games for being stupid...stupid that he believed that the NFL wouldn't catch him cheating

    If Dunbar really was taking PEDs, I certainly hope his production doesn't drop off significantly when he comes back.

    Dunbar said he took a substance not knowing it had a banned substance in it. He did this accidentally. I'm not dissapointed in him. He's a guy who's been a backup and ST'er most of his career. Coming into a contract year he obviously wants security for himself and his family and was willing (or as he says "accidentally") to go above and beyond.

    Unfortunately, he is our best run stopping LB. He's going to be missed big time. We're going to need guys to step up while he's gone.

    Sosa nailed it.
    If a team won their division seven straight times, that would be a NFL record. Now add on that team did it with seven different QB's in seven straight years,that record is unbeatable. To do that feat, you must of had a great Defense. Jack Youngblood was the captain of that defense.

    Well this certainly sucks!

    And of course he did not know he was taking a banned substance.

    I'm not so certain that Spoon will be the next starter. He did not look like the spoon of old during the first preseason game. In fact he did not look good at all to me.

    If the banned substance was in something like cough or cold medicine, I'd be inclined to cut him some slack, but if it was in some kind of sports supplement, there is absolutely NO excuse, none. if you're not absolutely sure what you're taking, and that it's legit, DON'T!

    Either he took it accidentally and this is just an unfortunate situation, or he took it purposely and got caught. I can't even begin to imagine how many guys take supplements to help their performance and don't get caught. Take HGH for example. I heard an NFL Exec. say that he'd be willing to bet that AT LEAST 15 players on every team take it. That stuff will make you a monster in the weight room, very likely to also help you translate that gained strength and speed to the field.

    It's probably wishful thinking that we'll get to hear the circumstances of how he took it "accidentally". This stuff just makes me want to scream.

    I believe in 2nd chances and I really do want to believe his story, but the fact is we've been lied to so often by athletes- especially baseball players- claiming "accidental" use or outright denials of wrongdoing that I'm not inclined to believe anyone. That's what we face today as fans of professional sports. Every guy in the league is given a comprehensive list of what's legal and what isn't, and it's their responsibility to know which is which. And taking stuff "to provide for your family" is BS. The ends don't justify the means. If you can't do it legally and honorably, then find another profession.
