The NFL is a freaking mess and every day new scandals emerge about the players, coaches and the owners.
This article is about an NFL player who admits that he did drugs and drank alcohol before every game.
Now, we all know back in the day legends like Babe Ruth played drunk but that was then-this is now.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon admitted to using drugs or alcohol before every game of his NFL career.
EVERY GAME! This dude has a serious substance abuse problem.
WHOA! Wouldn’t it be classic if this thug fell flat on his face while kneeling during the National Anthem? LMAO!
Anyways, Gordon, who was reinstated on a conditional basis last week by Commissioner Roger Goodell, told GQ Magazine he drank or smoked marijuana before “every game. Probably every game of my career.”
The 26-year-old Gordon did the interview before meeting with Goodell in New York, Fox reports.
Gordon outlined a pregame routine where he would do shots of alcohol to “get the motor running.”
“If I had already been drug tested that week, or the day before the game, I knew I had a couple days to buy to clean my system,” he said in the interview.
“Even before I was getting tested for alcohol, prior to my DWI in 2014, I would take the biggest bong rip I could. And try to conceal all the smell off all my clothes. I’d be dressed up to go to the game. A bunch of guys smoke weed before the game. But we’re not talking about them.”
A pillar of society folks.
“Effective immediately, Gordon may join the Browns to attend meetings, engage in conditioning work and individual workouts,” the league stated in a release. “Subject to compliance with clinical and other requirements, he will be placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt list and be permitted to practice with the team beginning on Monday, November 20. Beginning Monday, November 27, Gordon will be eligible at the team’s discretion to return to active status or to remain on the Commissioner’s Exempt list for an additional week before returning to active status.”
Gordon’s last game came in Week 16 of the 2014 season, when the Browns fell to the Carolina Panthers 17-13. The receiver was suspended without pay for at least one year on Feb. 3, 2015, after he tested positive for alcohol, which violated the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse due to Gordon’s past DUI.
He was working toward a return in 2016, participating in training camp and Cleveland’s preseason. That never happened, as Gordon voluntarily checked himself into an in-patient rehabilitation facility in October to “gain full control of my life,” ending his chance of playing that season and adding another chapter to Cleveland’s frustration with the immensely talented player who had plenty of off-field struggles.
Gordon has missed 51 games since 2014 due to suspensions. He has forfeited nearly $3 million in salary due to various fines and suspensions since 2013, according to Spotrac.
Look, I’m all for 2nd chances and wish him the best but I guarantee he will be out there taking a knee and frankly, I don’t give a shit.
I stopped watching the NFL and couldn’t give a rat’s ass about those overpaid thugs.
They can all go to hell as far as I’m concerned.
