(Not exactly a response to your post but i will piggy back off part of it). I don't understand why people are calling this overblown. I don't think it means he is on the verge of being cut but it does matter. This isn't just a guy being late. This is JOSH GORDON being late. If Tom Brady showed up for a practice or flight late and got disciplined it wouldn't be a long term story. We know that is highly unusual for Tom Brady. This is not highly unusual behavior for Josh Gordon. That is the problem with this story. That is why this story matters more. Even if he was late for completely innocent reasons it still is a story. It doesn't matter WHY he is late (unless the reason is not completely innocent). The fact he is late is a big story. It shows he is not turning over a new leaf.
