    Yeah, it was a bad decision.

    Yes, if it were a Colt Player or any other rival I would be all over it.

    But after reading Rodney's statement it confirmed for me what I really felt was most likely his reasons for making a poor decision.

    I can tell you in my life, on more then one occasion unfortunately, I have made worse decisions then Rodney did here.

    I'm just here to say "can't wait to see you back here in October Rodney".

    I'm no less a fan of his then before. Disappointed, yes. But I sure can't throw the first stone.

    Screw the rival fans who eat this up.

    Hurry back Rodney!

    After reading his apology and conference call, any real Rodney fan would probably be willing to accept his apology and give him support. I know that I will.

    It's not just reading the statement, but knowing the guy. It's not about "the laundry" so much as the person.

    Guys like Harrison, Dillon, and now Moss were just caricatures until they get here and you watch them and listen to them. I think as you get to know them a bit, at least as a team member, it moderates the reaction.

    That statement was utter Rodney. Perfect.

    Stay healthy, get back, no one was going to ever like you anyway - but it was all a persona. Pats fans will support you. I know I will!

    Yeah, I'm disappointed. But, I am 37 and have severe arthritis in my hips. If I knew smoking crack would help I'd use it even if it is illegal.
    A bad decision on his part, and one one I'm sure he didn't make easily.
    Kudo's to him for admitting it, which is more than others have done.
    I don't respct Hot Rod any less.
    Serve your sentence and come back better than before.

    I don't know, I'm still pretty angry, but I have to offer my support for the team - and the best way to do that is to get Rodney back in the fold. I'm glad he's apologized, glad he's serving his time, and looking forward to getting the whole team playing together and hitting its stride by the bye week.

    A rodney harrison support thread? Are you guys kidding me? What, are you 7 years old?

    He got caught, so he is saying the right things and now you are falling all over him.

    I'd bet 25% of every team (at least) is on HGH but for the life of me can't imagine any other team having such pathetic fans as to start a "support thread" for some dude who got nabbed for taking 'roids.

    keep going guys, this is amusing....

    Rodney comes back week 5, AT HOME, against Cleveland.

    I hope the fans give the guy a standing ovation.

    I support Rodney for life. No tries harder, no one wants to win more. He made a mistake, I know I have made plenty. He's given me so much joy since 2003.

    STFU. If Mike Vick the Dog Killer has avid supporters, then this is nothing.

    BTW, jackass, HGH is not a steroid.

    Oh, and nobody is "kidding you". Because no one here cares at all that you even exist.

    Rodney is still my favorite Pats player ever. The pressure to come back from an injury like that must be overwhelming. There's no excuse, he's serving his time and he should. But he's a man and admitted it. Some may say it's fake from just "being caught" but based on his character, I'd say his being honest. You're the man Rodney.

    He's still Rodney to me and I will forgive him eventually, but I don't have a whole lot of sympathy for him right now. He made a terrible decision and is suffering the consequences. It's very unfortunate, and I'm still a fan of the guy, but Rodney isn't getting anything he doesn't deserve.

    We're old enough to know that HGH and 'roids aren't the same thing.

    No, they're pathetic for rooting for teams other than the Patriots. Now get lost.

    I'm disappointed but I still respect and support him and I look forward to cheering him on starting in week 5. Some people are treating him like the scum of the Earth in here and I think that is 100% out of line :mad:

    It wasn't a big deal when Shawne Merriman got suspended and this won't be that big of a deal either.

    Ditto! Rodney rolled the dice and this is what he got! He's one of many, but got caught. I'll support him as long as he serves his suspension, comes back to play 100% and contributes the way he always has!! Can this season get under way quick enough!!

    Most of us in Charger Land are depressed as well. We love Rodney.

    And we certainly know what you're going through. I hope it doesn't happen again.

    It will. If they caught Harrison, then they'll get more. I think this is just the tip of the iceberg. Not just for football, but other sports as well. There are members of Congress and the Senate that really want to take these guys down a notch and put them in their place(i.e. since the congressional hearings on MLB and steroids a couple years ago). The gov't doesn't mess around when people start thinking their above the law. It may take a while, but they'll find someone to crucify eventually. Personally, I hope they can put a stop to all of it, but as long as the big $$$ are there most athletes will take the risk!
