The story goes that a good college player can't control himself while making thousands of dollars, gets suspended earning )$, Then he gets a job though temporary coaching young men. People talk about education standards?

The dumbest comment I might have ever read. Wish the young man the best of luck.

That's cool, but Henderson is essentially Las Vegas.

Seems like an overly challenging location for someone undergoing his current struggle.

Sounds like it's more of a depression issue than a partying issue.


Yes, but it wasn't depression that got him suspended.***

Hey, I'm twice suspended from the NFL for substance abuse,

but I'm gonna coach high school receivers. Really? Perhaps Martavis should spend the year off getting help for himself before he tries to help anyone else.

what is best for Martavis. I mean, the Steelers organization, and their unlimited resources failed to reach out to you, CUTexan, for your opinion in matters regarding a man you have never met, nor have information regarding the inner workings of his life and situation.

HOW DARE THEY!!!

Nothing I saw - and if it did, it wouldn't have made his comments less valid than they were already.

that want to condemn my post, ask yourself this...if he was guilty of two incidents related to weed while he was at Clemson, what would have happened to him? That's right, he would have been off the team. He needs help, he's jeopardizing his future, he doesn't need to be coaching high school kids.

Ferk your post.

Good Luck Tay!


How do you know what he needs? Maybe he needs those kids to feel like

[10]
Posted: Jul 28, 2016 11:10 PM
 

he has a purpose and realize that he can do great things AND feel better by giving back and helping others.

When one is struggling with a personal battle, sitting around alone is the absolute last thing that they need to be doing. Taking on some responsibility and putting himself out there with these kids is probably exactly what he needs.

And I'm sure they can look past his mistakes and learn from them as long as he is able to straighten himself out.

I am with you! If the problem is depression, maybe he needs that sense of purpose more than anything. Like what he is doing has meaning. Coaching kids and teaching them has to be rewarding.

Good luck and have some fun teaching those kids! This Tiger fan is on your side.

You mean more of a sense of purpose than proving the 2 dozen

Posted: Jul 29, 2016 7:46 AM
 

or more folks in the Steelers organization that they were right in taking a pretty large gamble on picking him & paying him big money ?


You mean more of a sense of purpose than proving all the other teams wrong that didn't pick him ?


You mean more of a sense of purpose than representing his & my University & showing why a Clemson Man truly needs no introduction ?


You mean more of a sense of purpose than representing his family & friends & hometown & using his God given gifts to their fullest for the very few, short years he will be able to do it ?



Wish MB nothing but the best & hope he gets what he needs to be as successful as he wants to be. He is a Tiger, no matter what.


As a parent - I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want my young adult coached by someone with his known, CURRENT, issues.

I realize that ANY coach could be a Sandusky, etc with all kinda crap in the closet - but this is a widely publicized story of depression & poor choices in following the rules.


Have him come and give a talk & warn of the dangers & shake some hands & get some pixs made, etc. but to be a coach - not so sure if I would want that for my kid.


And why Henderson / Las Vegas ? Family out there ? Counseling out there ? Just curious - seems a long way from home.

You seem to be extremely passionate

OK . . . . . good to know.

2019 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

You may be right that counseling is out there BUT

Posted: Jul 29, 2016 8:13 AM
 

miss the point that interaction with others may actually be part of a rehab plan - and who better to interact with but high school players? Also, your other comments about money and representing family, friends and his school are out of line as depression can result in isolation and such despair that all things in life lose their sense of value. He did make a huge mistake by continuing drug use , but if it was only for marijuana, you, as a parent, may want to homeschool your kids because of the number of educators and high school kids who abuse that without having to be drug-tested - and you are "not sure you want that for" your kid.

Good points. The interaction with teammates is different...


Posted: Jul 29, 2016 10:28 AM
 

Good points.

You'd probably gladly have your young adult coached by

Someone like Bear Bryant, who went to rehab in 1978 and even afterwards continued to drink and gamble on horseraces

You are passionate about this and I don't blame you. But I have seen what depression can do to a person. I have had people in my life make choices that could have destroyed themselves, their families, and their careers.

I am disappointed that he felt a need to use any drugs to cope. That he either did not or could not find help to deal with the depression. But, I don't know his circumstances and feel little need to be judgemental. He is out of the NFL for a year.....nothing that can be done to change that now. Maybe he can find something to be passionate about for the next year while he trys to get things straightened out.

My 2 cents.....take them for what they are worth.

2019 white level member

He would've been suspended for 2 games


Posted: Jul 29, 2016 9:42 AM
 

just like Deon Cain was.


I am no weed supporter, but an entire season for weed?


Posted: Jul 28, 2016 9:09 PM
 

There has got to be more to this story than just simply smoking weed, even if on multiple occasions. Athletes at that level are crazy to smoke or drink with so much at stake, but in the end, it's their body and their life. A full year seems ridiculous. I must be missing something.

2019 white level member

It's just the rules. Test positive this many times and you

sit out a year. He knew the rules, but felt it was worth the risk.

in his home town.Would have been a great human interest story of giving back, to help his image. Driving distance from the casinos doesn't do that.


No, bad influences have easy access him in his hometown***

his suspension is ridiculous...

Posted: Jul 29, 2016 2:39 PM
 

Yes he needs to follow the rules of the NFL. No question about that. But the NFL ban on pot needs to go. Funny thing about him having depression, doctors have proved that pot can help with depression and in states that have medicinal pot doctors prescribe it to patients with depression. There is even research now that is showing pot might help with CTE. Total hypocrisy by the NFL on this one. It's ok for a player to be addicted to dangerous pain killers which have terrible side effects, but a plant with many medicinal uses (which humans have been using for medicine for 5000 years) and whose only possible negative side effect is on people who start using in there early teens or preteen years, is a banned substance that carries a stiffer penalty than domestic violence

badge-donor-05yr.jpg

No, his suspension is justified.


Posted: Jul 29, 2016 3:21 PM
 

I have no opinion on weed, it doesn't affect me. Legalize or don't - I don't care.

But MB knew the rules. He knew if he got caught doing this one more time, he would get suspended for an entire season. And then he did it anyway.

There are other ways to cope with depression that aren't specifically stated by your employer to be off limits.

What MB did was borderline ignorant (and stupid).

Re: No, his suspension is justified.


Posted: Jul 29, 2016 3:35 PM
 

Right. I'm depressed. I think I'll do drugs! There are better ways and most are legal.


either way he is doing a drug...


Posted: Jul 29, 2016 3:48 PM
 

Whether it's pot or an anti depressant. Both of which treat depression. It's one drug we are talking about here, not crack or meth. And like I said before humans have used pot for medicine for 5000 years. Oh and antidepressants have more negative side effects than pot, which only has one that's been proven

You don't understand depression. I can't believe the amount of idiots that pull for my favorite school.


Bury yourself in the bottom of a bottle instead

since that's perfectly legal.

I'll just leave this unrelated link here...

you missed my point...


Posted: Jul 29, 2016 3:43 PM
 

I stated MB should have followed the rules, but the NFL rules on this are hypocritical and I gave reasons why it is. I said it was ridiculous, on part of the NFL, because MB will get suspended longer for this than Greg Hardy got for brutally pistol whipping a woman. So my comments were more about the NFL, which was pretty clear considering I stated that MB should have followed the rules. Of course maybe you think smoking a doobie is worse than pistol whipping a women.

Why can't people on here read the whole post and understand something that is clearly stated, instead of missing the point and have to be retold pretty much in the same words what's it about. So just to make it clear for you, yes you have to follow the rules as a player no matter what, but the suspension is ridiculous because of the hypocrisy of the NFL. As I pointed out with how the NFL deals with highly addictive pain killers and domestic violence

Re: you missed my point...

The main point is .... It is not legal at this time. Most would agree that it is much less harmful that most drugs but it's a no no, therefore don't jeopardize your career by using it. Smoking pot is much better than carring around an assault rifle but one is ok and one isn't. Ain't America great?


Good point***

...what mental illness does to a person.

He needs to pay the consequences of what he's done, but those talking out of their ### if truly a Clemson fan should respect his situation and stfu.

There's no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people who ask questions.


why would a high school . . .

hire someone that has been suspended several times for substance abuse? What is that saying?


Re: why would a high school . . .

Posted: Jul 31, 2016 6:53 AM
 

They did not hire him.....he is volunteering. As for why they would want him around? He is someone who can reinforce to students the need to make good choices and that includes staying away from drugs of any kind.

I guess I think that these kids could learn about football and a few important life lessons.
