    Merriman will be suspended four games

    From kffl.com

    Chargers | Merriman will be suspended four games
    Sun, 22 Oct 2006 19:09:27 -0700

    ESPN.com reports San Diego Chargers LB Shawne Merriman has been notified by the NFL he will be suspended four games for violating the league's steroids policy, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. A source with knowledge of Merriman's situation said the positive test was "definitely for steroids…not one of those supplement deals." Merriman's suspension originally was to be announced Tuesday, Oct. 17, but he reserved the right to appeal his suspension which delayed the announcement.

    Big blow for the Chargers. Is it just me or does it seem like there are way more suspensions this year that ever before?

    Lets hope that means that they are testing more than they used to. They also need unscheduled tests, and out of competition tests.

    This should become a clean sport.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Oh man that hurts. Kind of sad to see a player like that who would have been a potential defensive player of the year down the road take steroids and head down the road that leads to no where.

    I'd also say that I like him too. He's played really outstanding this year and last year.

    But I just hate drugs in sports. If you drug yourself you've got to go, then I don't care who you are.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Very dissapointing.

    Because not only is he a great player, but until now, it seemed like he was a good character guy.

    The Charges had 1 of their best linebackers Shaun Phillips injured yesterday, he will miss 4 to 6 weeks and with Merriman getting suspended for 4 games they are going to be hurting at linebacker.
    I guess it is good that they didn't trade Donnie Edwards this off season at least they have him in the middle.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
