Looks like they weren’t happy with week 1 results and decided to roll the dice again with TD snagging Martavis Bryant.

If I had a player of his caliber, who is also proven, I'd let him on the team. Honestly who gives a crap, its weed. I know its the rule, but its a stupid rule. Like your going to sit there and tell me other players don't smoke and the owners and coaches don't look the other way??? Please

That's the problem with this new dont give two chits world. First, i dont care who smokes pot and who doesn't. I dont but have friends that do. But the 'so what BS' is what doesnt work. Yes!!! Its the rule! It doesn't matter if others are doing it or not, but he has a reputation as a rule breaker. NO! Its not OK to do it! That attitude will get you fired everyday if your employer says you cant do it in your Handbook! No excuses! He can make millions but if a hit from the bong is better that millions then dont preach to me about taking care of your family. I dont want to hear then BS. No more talk, show me! Otherwise just quit and smoke and take care of your family some other way!

And by the way, sir! Most big corp jobs do drug tests and marijuana is not an approved substance even if your state allows.


Rules are stupid

I work for a huge Corp. I smoke on the regular. Our company has a no drug test policy. Will NEVER get tested at this company. Bet if they did, a large chunk of the company would be wrong lol.

I'm surprised NFL hasnt but you on Rules Committee yet. They need your unique brainpower.


who cares is the league.. and martavis has your attitude

which is going to keep he and his family locked out of a great future.

So the attitude of "its a stupid rule" means absolutely nothing. It is what it is and its a choice for MB for his future and his kids future. Suck it up and get through 3-5 seasons, make your money and then retire to colorado and have at it. but for now stop being selfish and stupid and do work son.

Rules or not this is about a player’s performance and smoking mj affects performance. The owners have megabucks invested in these guys so IMO they have a right to make the rules (State & Federal laws notwithstanding), and the players sign a contract agreeing to obey those rules. So they have a choice.

If you don’t think MJ affects performance I’ll refer you to the case of Stephen Garcia formerly the QB at SCar.

Hopefully hes finally got it together and is for real. Too much God given talent and potential just to #### it all away over something stupid

So maybe he didn't test positive again...***

Looks like Chucky is forcing the league to show its cards.

Can't imagine the NFL will sit by and let him play if he does in fact have another failed test on his record.

Great news for him. Oakland definitely needs help. I hope for Bryant’s sake, he is getting the help he needs. I know his struggle all too well. Depression can rob you of all your decision making abilities. We too, often hold athletes to standards we can’t ourselves live up to. Pressure at any level, can be debilitating. Martavis has God given gifts we all covet. He also has the same struggles. Prayers for him, and his family. I hope he goes forward and is able to be a productive football player. At the very least, he can use his situation to help other young athletes with the same type of issues. If he had better support, he may not be in the trouble he is in. Chuckie May be the best influence for him right now! I feel like he may be where he can get the help he needs. JG will love/coach him up. As a young man, and as a football player. I’d love to see Bryant catching footballs turning flips, making the top 10 like he did just a couple seasons ago!


The depression is only one part of it.

Martavis suffers from Migraines.

I can be sympathetic towards him as I had migraines as a kid for several year, and have battled depression as an adult. I couldn't imagine dealing with both on the regular. What a black hole (but to then add actual physical pain on top of it). Terrible.

If there is a way he can deal with the migraines, depression and stress all at the same time, that doesn't include weed. I'm all for it. Even if its just 3-5 years so he can make his money and take care of his family for a lifetime. At the same time, I hope it's not opioids that are the solution as that could be more dangerous than weed.
