    very surprised. not that he had pain killers, but that he was arrested, and the entire media world wasnt calling for b.b.'s suspension :eek:
    pretty amazing they kept it a secret, but they would have to in order to pull off the sting.

    So apparently Kaczur turned state's evidence to escape a misdemeanor drug possession charge and a moving violation.

    I'm sure some intrepid sports reporters will get to the bottom of this case and give us all the pertinent information as it transpires.

    Oh wait, that'll be the regular reporters. The sports reporters will yak yak yak yak yak yak about what they think about this case.

    Uh-oh, bad news. Kaczur had a (rumoured) reputation as a pot-head at one time. But Oxycodin is basically an opiate (from Wikipedia):

    Oxycodone was first synthesized in a German laboratory in 1916, a few years after the German pharmaceutical company Bayer had stopped the mass production of heroin due to addiction and abuse by both patients and physicians. It was hoped that a thebaine-derived drug would retain the analgesic effects of morphine and heroin with less of the euphoric effect which led to addiction and over use. To some extent this was achieved, as oxycodone does not "hit" the central nervous system with the same immediate punch as heroin or morphine and it does not last as long. The subjective experience of a "high" was still reported for oxycodone, however, and it made its way into medical usage in small increments in most Western countries until the introduction of high strength preparations with inert (inactive) binders radically boosted oxycodone use.


    The introduction of these higher strength preparations in 1995 resulted in increasing patterns of abuse. Unlike Percocet, whose potential for abuse is somewhat limited by the presence of paracetamol, OxyContin and other extended release preparations, contains only oxycodone and inert filler. Abusers simply crush the tablets, then either ingest the resulting powder orally, intranasally, intramuscular, or subcutaneous injection (by dissolving the powder), or rectally to achieve rapid absorption into the bloodstream. The tablets' coatings are removed, and they are crushed or chopped up by abusers to disable the time-release properties of the tablet, which allows the entire dose to "hit" the abuser at once. This rapid onset of the entire dose, or "hit", is referred to as "the rush" by drug abusers. This "rush" delivers a feeling of, what is described by abusers as, a "blissful apathy" and state of well-being, accompanied by a powerful and alluring euphoria. Injection of oxycodone directly into the bloodstream produces the most intense effects. Injection of OxyContin is also particularly dangerous since it contains binders which enable the time release of the drug. The vast majority of OxyContin-related deaths are attributed to ingesting substantial quantities of oxycodone in combination with another depressant of the central nervous system such as alcohol or benzodiazepines.

    The Globe painted this as another Patriots scandal, while all it is is a player who has addiction issues.. it is what it is.. hopefully he recovers and can be an asset to this team..

    Cant wait to see how jealous NFL fan idiots spin this one. No, I'm not defending Kaczur or sweeping what he did under the rug, it's just that these inbred morons will probably say we need more asterisks on our Super Bowl titles because of this.

    He needs painkillers for all the butt-kickings he took last year.

    Our offensive lineman sure do suck. They only ever seem to give up sacks, never make them.

    Wow the RT position for the Pats is cursed. Oxycotin is a powerful Opiate if Kaczur was needing pain pills for pain their are other ones available that are not so likely to mess you up. I suspect that these pills were more for getting high than playing through pain. The Pats need to trade him to the Rats he will fit right in.

    Ted Johnson did at one time have a painkiller addiction, around the same time when his wife accused him of assault, the charges were dropped, and they divorced. Also around the time when he accused Belichick of contributing to his demise.

    LOL if you didn't know that Kaczur was the weak link of the Pats' O-line before SB42 then you didn't watch the Pats in 2007.

    I can already see it. Goodell ignores it while dropping the hammer on the Bills and everyone ignore the June 1st bit and claim it shows more favoritism towards the Patriots.

    I wonder when he shared his arrest with the team. If he cooperated with the authorities in hopes of avoiding the arrest becoming public knowledge, he could face possible consequences. A player is supposed to inform the team and NFL of an arrest immediately, and failure to do so subjects them to discipline. That is part of what got Pacman Jones in trouble on one of his many issues.
