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.

    • There was no sex trafficking going on...100% fake news. Who are you saying makes these "women think this is the only thing they can do"?  You do realize the place was run by some middle aged women, right? Do you care about "the truth"?  Doesn't appear to be the case... https://nypost.com/2019/04/12/prosecutors-concede-no-human-trafficking-in-kraft-spa-case/  
    • Where to begin.... So I like that we picked up with Jon clearly having killing Dany on his mind from the beginning of the episode until he finally did it. I love that tortured look of knowing what must be done because it is right and utterly refusing to accept it until the moment it is done because of his love for her. Great acting sold all of that well. The first half was super tense because of it. Also the visual of the throne being melted and what that represented for the entirety of the series. Just a great scene. Then we move along to the time jump (which we know is a few weeks thanks to Tyrion's monologue). I liked that whole scene as well...what I DIDN'T like was treating Jon the way they did. The Unsullied basically strong-armed them into exiling the actual hero of Westeros. He legitimately saved almost every major character and/or their people at some point in this show and certainly saved the entirety of the North by killing Dany. And to top that off, he's a better person than pretty much anybody at this point. And for his trouble, he gets exiled. Now, because he is a good man, he is exiled to go be with people who also love and adore and follow him. So while it is BS, at least it's not a true punishment beyond his choice in the matter being taken. I mean, he did CHOOSE to go to The Wall the first time around to prove himself. But dammit, he should be praised the land over for what he did. Everybody would be bending the knee to a genocidal maniac or be slaughtered by a genocidal maniac were it not for him. Everybody's roles in the new Six Kingdoms, sure. It is fitting. Sure, Bran becoming king is a tad unexpected. But the way he acted about Tyrion proposing it ("why do you think I came all this way?"). I mean, WHAT?! At no point did you ever suggest that the throne was your endgame but suddenly, once Jon kills Dany, you're all about being the king? The ending montage was cool. Sansa going from scared little bird to the Queen in the North is awesome. Arya doing her own thing under the Stark banner is cool (goes from feeling like she'll never fit into her family because she didn't want to be a lady, to renouncing her name to become a Faceless woMan, to reclaiming her name and finding her place within the family, just a great character arc). Jon being treated as basically the king of the Wildlings is awesome. Do wish we knew how much time had passed that they could rebuild the castle in King's Landing so quickly. Or repair Winterfell such that the great hall was so pristine. Or know if they fixed the gap in the Wall that the Night King came through or if they leave it as there are no longer any White Walkers and no threat North of the wall that we know of. I guess I am satisfied in the ending....but it left a bad taste in my mouth about Jon. I felt for him because it's almost a cautionary tale of what happens to good men who remain good. They end up eventually punished for doing the right thing.
