Ughhh.

But this would not have happened to Julian Manning  ::) ::) ::)

Now the Pats will be starting the season without their best WR and he misses another quarter of the season, on top of the entire season he missed last year.

Dissapointing

Not too worried about it from a football perspective.

Silver linings:
1.  PEDs helped him recover quicker, better (sorry).
2. 4 Games off increases chances he's healthy throughout the season.
3. Another WR gets an opportunity and perhaps Brady finds a new reliable weapon in the 1st four games.

My guess is that the majority of NFL players use PEDs.

I would think so.  But interesting interview with Rob Ninkovich this afternoon.  I didn't hear it all so would be interested in hearing from someone who did.  Ninkovich was suspended for 4 games a few years back -- but in the interview he was saying that he never used banned substances and he denied the idea that most NFL players use PED/steroids.   I don't know if he was saying that he was falsely accused/suspended -- or -- if he was saying that he had mistakenly used a banned substance (was unaware).

Anyway -- he indicated that fewer NFL players use banned substances than people think.

Those so inclined will do so no matter what.  I get a kick out of it.  There isn't a sports fan in the universe who wouldn't gladly take everything that the Pats have given its fans, no matter how they did it (I don't know, or care, if they spied or deflated).  I'm grateful for every strategically placed video camera and every optimally deflated football.   If another team cheated, I'd be outraged -- but others can think anthing they want about the Pats -- I don't care.   The last 17 years have been an incomparable sports joy ride.
