    It said in another artice that the commissioner has the final say when a suspension is over. I am guessing that by the way he got caught, that the league is not quick to reinstate him.



    "The Commissioner, in his sole discretion, will determine if and when the player will be allowed to return to the NFL," the policy states. "A player's failure to adhere to his Treatment Plan during his banishment will be a significant consideration in the Commissioner's decision of whether to reinstate a player."

    If he has had no further incidents since his suspension then I see the players union having a problem with him not being allowed to play! They would file a grievance with the NFL, commissioners decision or not.

    Smith needs to show evidence that his doing the right things. This lawsuit is not helping his cause. I'm sure he will be reinstated at some point.

    how does that work? ricky gets back in the league last year, and onterrio cant this year? thats just weak on the NFLs part..double standards for the guys that sell more uniforms on the streets
    Ricky was never suspended for a year (until yesturday)... he only had a 4 game suspention... but retired before he served it... I dont think there is a double standard here...

    Why wouldnt he be allowed to come back though? That doesnt even make sense... :?:

    Yeah, that's a great movie.

    My roomate is Italian, so he's into all those mob/mafia type movies.

    He had me watch it about a week ago, and I really enjoyed it.



    I'll be very dissapointed if Onterrio isn't on our roster this season, because he was always my favorite running back, on our team.

    If he tested positive again or did anything stupid he deserves to be out of the NFL for good as does Ricky Williams. I love Onterrio but its either time to smarten up after last year or go try to get a real job outside of the NFL.

    Where at McDonald's? Last I heard he was broke and living in his Mom's basement.




    Who is going to hire this guy?


    Interview:

    Who was your last employer? And what did you do for them?

    I was a running back for the Minnesota Vikings.

    What happened that you are no longer playing in the NFL?

    Well, I got busted for drugs for the 4th time and got caught with a fake dickk that supposed to beat drug tests, but I bought the wrong color, I am black and I had bought a white one, so I couldn't use it and got busted.

    Your the whizzinator! Oh my god I can't wait to tell my buddies that I had the Whizzinator in my office today.

    Next applicant please, have a good day whizzinator.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Onterrio Smith proclaimed himself the "Steal of the Draft' after Minnesota picked him in the fourth round out of the University of Oregon in 2003.

    Three years later, it's clear why he didn't go any higher.
