    Ok, Rodney has served his 4 game suspension. It cost him roughly $500,000 in lost salary. He has said that he was shamed by it and humiliated. He said that he made a mistake in judgement and has learned from it.

    His actions could have hurt the team but the team weathered the storm and are 4-0.

    There were some who said that they wanted him cut when this first happened. There were some who considered him a cheat and said that would not feel the same about him.

    Now that the 4 weeks suspension has passed and he's back with the team, how do you feel now?

    Nothing to forgive.

    As far as I'm concerned he's returning from a 4 week sprained ankle.

    The same as always. Just go out and roll some heads. Rodney has to work double time in order to make up for lost time!!

    You mean for using HGH?

    A drug that the NFL doesn't test for?

    A drug that's heavily used in the NFL?

    If I can't forgive Rodney, then I have to find another sport to watch, like bicycle racing.

    For knowingly taking a banned substance and being suspended.


    As I recall when this first came out, it was about 50-50 between those who supported Rodney and those who thought he was a cheater.

    In 10 years, every guy over 30 will be using some form of designer HGH. The stuff is an amazing advancement in medicine.

    I could care less about him using it.

    Rodney has served his punishment. And I don't think it's going to happen again.
    That's about all you can ask for. I'm looking forward to seeing Rodney bring the pain next Sunday!

    Easy to forgive when the Pats are 4-0.

    It's crazy how people get all worked up about things that the MEDIA tells them are "bad". 99.9% of the talking heads who are complaining about HGH, don’t know the first thing about it.

    Used correctly (under the care of a professional), the stuff has proven to be safe and HIGHLY effective at improving peoples overall quality of life.

    The benefits are amazing. In the not so distant future, designer HGH will be prescribed as frequently as Viagra.

    The man has provided me as much sports entertainment as anyone. He doesn't need my forgiveness. He has my thanks.

    Early results in:

    90% forgive him already

    The other 10% forgive him conditionally, until the first time he lays a hurting on opposing WR. Then complete absolution comes. :cool:

    I admire how he worked completely with federal investigators in their probe. They even made statements on how cooperative he was.

    Regards,
    Chris

    P.S. When the HGH test becomes commonplace, I think we're going to see a big shakeup in the sports world and not just the NFL, but all sports, especially baseball. Enjoy these athletes for the entertainment they provide, but don't put them on a pedestal. If you judge some athletes because they use PEDs and your favorite athletes don't (as far as you know), be ready to be disappointed down the road.
