That's why he is suspended for breaking the rules. Not that difficult to understand, imo
    bingo!
    They say that love is more important than money, but have you ever tried to pay your bills with a hug?

    Are you saying legalizing weed is going to cure aids? ALS? World peace?

    I am not saying it shouldn't be legal (I repeat) but it is not like the NFL is taking away Josh Gordon's family...

    If the NFL makes pop illegal I may not agree with it, but I can do without because I understand there are consequences involved.

    Rationalizing is not a good thing... So you give me all the examples for the bad things that happened to people when they broke a rule... You just listed the exceptions... The other list i'm referring too, would literally be off the page... You wouldn't have enough time in the day to right down the bad things

    So, by your reasoning, you're not going to have any rules for your children... If you do have rules, you will not have any consequences for them if they do break it? There is a reason people have rules...

    The rule will be if you choose to smoke you have to share it with daddy. And if they don't ill ban them from playing football, just to be a dick! Which is all this is. They're just being dicks, the NFL has not expressed any reasoning for their rule.

    The individual teams should ban soda if they believe it to be in their best interest. The NFL should shut the **** up about it.

    BTW, Gordon's "family" is most likely all his buddies he smokes with.
