Zero chance that J,R would ever consider this even if he played for free......let alone for a dollar bill.

More like, you should realize that your judgments are ignorance-based. Thanks for yet again reaffirming what I said to begin with.

Anyway.

You don't know what you don't know, and you can't predict the future, which is why sometimes you take a chance on "talented" guys who still need to mature (if you can do it for a reasonable price), because 1) they could mature, and 2) most people are hiding things that could've gotten them arrested at some point.

Plenty of people around this country got DWIs on the 4th. Gordon is a moron, but a holiday DWI and smoking marijuana aren't the biggest of deals to me, and those types of incidents don't usually end up being "gateway crimes" to bigger ones.

Some organization is going to say, "we are run more competently than the Browns, we can handle him better," and take a risk on him. And they won't break the bank doing it either.

You said "guys like Josh Gordon". There aren't a whole lot of guys "like" Gordon talent-wise. If this was Josh Norman, he'd have been gone after the first offense.


Driving drunk is a "gateway crime" to killing yourself or somebody else. But it's a holiday, so no big deal I guess.

Fug bad press and public opinion if the guy can help us win football games I want him on our team.

 

Players who are suspended indefinitely, as Gordon is probably about to be, don't really help you win games.

 

And if you wanna suggest we hold his rights for however many years it takes for him to get hold of himself (which, by the way, might never happen) that'd be pretty useless.

No, just in touch with reality.

 

You might have heard of it.  It's a place where the kind of ridiculously idealistic scenario you imagine will never happen.
 

 

I'm covered by the word "if."

Hello, Mr. Predictable. 

 

Like I said, plenty of people get DWI's on July 4th. I wouldn't expect any less from a knucklehead, so I'm not surprised or outraged.
