Source claims Eric Reid lied about how many times he was tested

And folks, look at the average roster in the NFL--this is really not about racism.  If I thought that were the case, I would be the first in line to protest. 

They ask Reid to take a drug test, and he complies but feels discriminated against.  Yet he complies.

Yet he does not stand for the National Anthem for the same reason?

I personally did not think he should have to stand, but I do not recall anyone telling him that he had to stand.  We just do not know all of the facts, but if I am a GM, I worry that he could piss in the drinking water--I look elsewhere for talent (safe move, not a racial move).

Well there are actual rules about taking drug tests whereas there are no rules about being required to stand. He would get suspended for a “failed” test if he refused to take a drug test and would have no chance at winning an appeal.

Every drug test I have done and I'm subject to random test at anytime.  You sign a piece of paper with a time and date on it  and get a copy. So if Reid was tested alot he would have receipts to prove it.  

 NFL should just say how many times he was tested.  They are the ones being accused of something, easy way to prove their innocence.   Should be easy for them to do the same.

They can’t because it’s private medical information. That’s why this is coming out via sources and wasn’t in their statement.

"Sources".

The league is worth billions, has all sorts of resources at their disposal. Yet they make more of an effort to disprove this than they did to get to the bottom of the Kareem Hunt incident before their hand was forced.

F*ck the NFL.

Get to the bottom of the Kareem Hunt incident?  He assaulted multiple people, including a female.  There's video of it.

How did a random media outlet get a hold of that video before a sports league worth billions like the NFL?

You aren't good at comprehending posts.

The NFL is basically daring him to provide proof. They can’t because of HIPAA which is why they leaked that he has been tested less than he claimed via “sources.”

Doesn’t hippo say you can’t reveal medical info. Nothing specific to how many requests they made.  The request for a medical procedure is not the same as the medical procedure.   

A doctor can provide information such as date and time related to a patient appointment but not the info specific to an appointment or diagnosis.  These should be available.

Well if the NFLPA was supporting him I would but since they aren't it's a bad look for him.

So... you think the NFL didn't look for a video?  What's the motivation for that?

Take your tin foil hat off, dude.

No matter where you stand on the issue this is a terrible point that really needs to die. Paying minorities to be entertainers for your profit in no way excludes you from being racist.

I know what you were going for here,

But this almost made me spit out my coffee lol.

There are definitely ways to find the exact number of tests that were requested of Reid, however, both sides are restricted by the same rules with regards to medical info, like you stated. The only way this gets resolved is behind closed doors with lawyers and the works, unfortunately. So we will probably never know which side was right. It'll just stay a PR battle between the two sides.

Employers are generally not affected by the HIPAA privacy rule. The NFL releases medical information all of the time. We get to know when and why players are suspended for PEDs or drugs. When a player gets knocked out of the game they give us detailed injury reports.

you think.   we'll see.  if he lied i don't like it either.   however the nfl is at a point where they need to prove it.  i don't trust  the nfl just because they said so.  

I'm not taking any sides on this one right now with the information that is currently available, but I think it's up to Reid to provide the proof since he's been the one crying foul. If he feels he's been wronged and he has the evidence to support those claims, then bust it out. Let's see it. I would absolutely support Reid if he has indeed been tested as many times as he has insinuated.

    • I highly doubt that will happen, but we will see soon enough. My prediction is that it just turns into the "was it a catch or not a catch" nonsense we had to deal with for two seasons. I think you will see dramatic variations in what is called PI and what is not called PI in video reviews.  It's already a pretty subjective call, much like holding on the offensive line, that could virtually be called on every passing play. If OPI is on the table, will there be reviews of illegal pick plays? Those are rampant in the NFL. I just don't see a real way this doesn't turn into a complete nightmare. 
    • Kinda the point on what is happening small farms and people getting back to home grown natural food.  You realize it was the boomer generation that went to processed foods.  We are taking it back.   Rodeo put up his tomatoes its not quite that season yet in Baltimore but do I need to share some of city container gardening that is right now flush with blueberries?   And yes I am Gen Xer which kinda started along those lines, you realize before it became just a buzz word it was my generation that did true farm to table dinning.  The younger generation is taking it up even more.    This is where I ate for fathers day: https://www.foragedeatery.com/ Tell me that a chef that forages for native mushrooms, berries, etc is a statement to boomers or millennials?
