NFL/PA deny targeting Eric Reid

Recommended Posts

According to USA Today the probability of one player receiving seven selections in 11 weeks is about 0.02%, so the NFL is claiming one incredible coincidence. I hope Eric shares his thoughts on the data he received.

Update:

When I was with the Marines there were random drug tests all the time, after long weekends or leave were over. 

I didn’t have any drug tests for 2 years. My roommate seemed like he was tested every month or more.

poo happens— everyone are crybabies these days.

the days of crybaby culture created by social media. People are so weak these days.

The NFL investigated the NFL and determined there was no wrongdoing.

The NFLPA also investigated it. The same NFLPA who filed the claim for Reid.

The NFLPA, whose job is to protect the players, determined there was nothing here. Case closed. Time to move on.

Way to completely ignore context. Reid's the only active player defying the NFL not a random member of his organization like your Marine.

“There’s a .195% chance of flipping heads nine times in a row,” says Nick Kapoor, an adjunct professor of mathematics at Fairfield University. “You have [about] the same probability of flipping a heads nine times in a row as he is being tested six times in 11 weeks.”

That guy was a hero, one of the best Marines and men ever. You don’t qualify as his wasted sperm let alone to speak of him that way. 

There’s no ignoring the context. It’s confirmation bias. Believing everyone is out to get you and then having something that is completely random not go your way turns into everyone out to get you.

anyway, when the NFLPA also says the tests were random, then it’s random and people are just using obscure cherry picked numbers to make it sound worst.

there are people who have won the lottery multiple times— odds of each though are completely separate from each other. 

Like I said poo happens

Seems nobody here can comprehend this. I bet not one of these people here have been in a situation getting hit with drug tests and being always being on the list each month unless they were part of military or a company. This has nothing to do with being targeted since that person being tested has nothing to fear by getting it done if they are clean or have a history of being clean for a test. If you have a history then you will most likely be the one getting hit because you used unauthorized substances several times in past.

Amen! 

Each test has its own random probability.

once done, the next one has the same probability as the last. 

People win the lottery multiple times... and weirdos try to connect those odds too.

its flawed math.

I've witnessed the same sort of situation with the military's random drug testing program on several occasions.  The response that the NFL just provided is the same one provided by military leadership.

To a military member being tested an inordinate number of times it never feels random, it feels like you're being targeted, even if the reason isn't apparent.
