    Agreed Uff.
    It's one thing to violate a contract or rule but it's another to act like a jackass about it.
    Now if it becomes a pattern that's a different story.

    Oh yeah, you can't support them forever. If t becomes a pattern or a trend you eventually need to cut the ties.

    All that being said, Edwards deserves a second chance but as Ultra said, he needs to get his head out of his ass and make sure what is right and wrong.

    Re: Edwards: 'I let them down'

    Well atleast he isn't sitting around blaming others for his actions.
    He did say that he should have looked at the substance list.
    Plus, he was trying to better himself with the hand, eye, foot coordination.

    Dumb Move on the suspension on his part.

    I can't believe the test was in April of last year and his suspension was in the last month.
    Wow, that is a delay!

    Very true. This substance abuse program still breads no confidence with me.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    The fact that Edwards is able to man up and admit his mistake is worth a lot in my book.

    I'm with you on that one.

    Good point, that means a lot in my book...just hope he learns from his error in judgment.
