    So you're saying he's gone all "Ricky Williams", eh?

    Heh....... I suspect he's likely to stay a free agent for quite awhile now. :cool:

    Different story when your employer who could potentially pay you millions of dollars has mandatory drug testing.

    Former Pat RB Laurence Maroney charged with misdemeanor drug possession

    Maroney charged with misdemeanor drug possession | St. Louis Post-Dispatch

    Maroney charged with a misdemeanor marijuana possession (less than an ounce).

    What may be the most interesting aspect of this charge is how it works out with Roger Goodell's player personal conduct policy and the NFL's drug policy. Will a player such as Maroney contest Goodell's authority to impose a suspension if or when that happens considering there is no CBA and the players are locked out at the time the charges are being made?

    You mean Maroney still plays in the NFL???:eek:

    Judging from his minimal near non existent stats in Denver you would think he was long out of football by now :snob:

    The crime happened when there was a CBA though.

    Re: Former Pat RB Laurence Maroney charged with misdemeanor drug possession

    Yeah, that will probably be Goodell's point - even though charges weren't filed till now. Will the fact Goodell did nothing while the CBA was still in effect matter? It will be more interesting to see what happens when a player does something and is also charged during the lockout.

    If Vince Jackson gets a DUI tomorrow, does he get suspended for a year? If he does, I can almost guarantee he contests Goodell's authority to do that considering the circumstances as well as the penalty.

    Re: Former Pat RB Laurence Maroney charged with misdemeanor drug possession

    I would think the player could be suspended if they do something during the lockout because I think the NFLPA and the NFL will agree that the new agreement will be retroactive to March 1, 2011 for the purposes of time of service, etc.... The NFL will then say any indiscretions that occurred during the lockout period are subject to league discipline.

    He was just formally charged. Its a legal thing.

    Its relevant because the Pats could use a RB to replace Taylor and Morris. If Lomo dances on the pot charge you never know.

    Agreed. Thats what Maroney is " a dude in his mid twenties" cause he is no longer an NFL football player. He had 74 yards on 36 carries last year with one lost fumble.

    I guess Moss isn't the only one that believes he can continue to play at a High Level.

    I, for one, am shocked to discover that Kool-Aid Maroney enjoys pot.
