I like your sig.

Good on the league for hopefully fining. The cheating needs to stop.

Fining the Hawks could get sticky. Teams can't watch players 24/7. If the Hawks encourage or make players use then someone would go to jail.

Fine the players. Not the organization. Oh the NFL finding another way to get money they don't even need. If another suspension happens I am going to be so disappointed. I have very high hopes for this season.

This is silly talk the league won't fine the Seahawks if they did it would be really stupid Paul Allen or the coaches can't follow these guys around 24/7 its there own fault if they don't follow the rules.

How many failed drug tests before it reflects some sort of organizational negligence?

For one, they can inform the players that they are starting to do random drug tests themselves so the players will be even more careful and less likely to use.

They can also fine/bench/threat to release players involve in failed drug testing.

They are pretty much getting fined and benched by getting caught and the NFL already does random drug testing they can only do a certain amount according to the new CBA i believe.

The only way your going to carry out the threat of a release is if the player is a multiple time offender or he is just a bad player.

I know they're grown men but you've got to ask yourself why it happens more to the Seahawks than other teams? What are they doing differently? Is it not enough education? A problem with discipline? Who knows...? I'm just saying that after a while you have to look past blaming the individual players and taking a deeper look at the problem. It's like if a class full of students is all failing, maybe the blame should not be placed on the students but rather on the teacher. I think it's organizations responsibility to keep these guys in line and to keep them clean.

The players do know the risks by league standards. There obiously aren't any risks playing for the Seahawks and taking PEDs. Which could be why the league is going to try to get the organization to get their players in line or get fined for it.

Due to the new CBA the teams can't do much if anything.
