Jason Taylor is Right
"You really shouldn't be able to fail a test like that and play in this league, to begin with," Taylor said Wednesday. "To make the Pro Bowl and all the other awards, I think you're walking a fine line of sending the wrong message."
Well said Jason. It astounds me how arrogant the NFL can be. What other explanation do you have for a guy getting voted into the Pro Bowl after missing 1/4 of the year for failing a steroid test in week 5, thereby telling you that the prior 1/4 of the year was played while under an illegal substance.
Wouldn't you think that if you were nabbed for steroids, you'd, I don't know, automatically lose consideration for post-season awards? I mean do you have to spell that out in the rules? Why isn't that just common sense? If you get caught cheating on a college term paper, you're probably not winning any student of the year awards. I don't really think you need it spelled out in the student handbook to know that.
