At the risk of sounding extremist, he is a victim of the system. His is another life ruined because of the bullshiat criminalization of smoking a plant created by Jesus. Sure, logically he is dumb for not abstaining for guaranteed millions; however, I believe it is utterly stupid that he has to have his life ruined for something so benign as pot smoking. He is not the only victim. Thousand of Americans lose civil rights for bullshiat criminalization of a harmless hobby.

He's not a victim. He broke the rules of the program repeatedly and was punished according to those rules. He's not doing any jail time.

He chose to put the bong above the millions. No one made him do it.

No, he's a victim of his own stupidity and this has nothing to do with criminalization of pot. His life is not ruined, he simply can't play football for LSU because he violated a rule for the third time. They are all sorts of rules in life one must follow, many are stupid, but he knew it was the price of admission to not smoke pot nor engage in all sorts of other activities, all of which are actually legal. (not sell his tickets/championship ring/shirts/do TV ads)

The fact he failed is a testament to a character weakness. I hope he learns his lesson, plays well for a 1AA team this year, goes pro next, and doesn't end up a loser like Maurice Clarette or the others like him.

I don't think there is a more ballsy Div-1 coach than Les Miles. When players violate the rules and do really stupid stuff, they are gone, regardless of their value to the team. He got rid of Ryan Perriloux, a 5-star player who was the top rated recruit in the country out of high school. His loss set LSU back at quarterback for two seasons. He suspended the starting quarterback last year for several games. He just got rid of TM7, a Heisman finalist last year. That guy has rules and he applies them to everybody.

Miles is not being criticized by many LSU fans right now.

I hate how the NCAA is set up. Players risk significant permanent injury so other people can make millions. They get room and board and a scholarship but I'm pretty sure most of the guys that go pro would rather take 200-500k a year to play in a minor league.

For the thousands that have no real shot at going pro the free scholarship is a great deal. But for the ghetto kids that dont really care about a degree in communications its kind of stupid to force them to try and earn one while following a bunch of arbitrary rules or lose their one shot at a great life.


...like going to class and not breaking the law?

Smart football players = Free degree
Dumb football player = Free million dollar contract

Caveat for both = Don't break the law and go to class

I don't feel very sorry for them. The whole deal is voluntary, after all.

ronmexico27: No, he wasn't.


I stand corrected. He was a quarterback and was, according to Rivals, the top quarterback recruit in the country. Rivals

So Miles, this year, dismissed the guy who won the award as the top defensive player in America last year. Link And previously dismissed the top quarterback prospect in the country. This still supports my point. Find my another D-1 football coach anywhere who consistently holds accountable as much as Les Miles.

I'm right with you in principle, but marijuana does hinder athletic performance as well...so he's sort of screwing up what he's supposed to be doing physically. I'd feel better if the reasoning was more about performance than the illegality issue. Furthermore, the coach has to think about a guy doing something that is likely to get him arrested...it's sometimes hard to replace someone in a matter of hours if your star player is sitting in jail on game day.

tl;dr Kicked off because it's illegal = stupid Kicked off because it negatively impacts performance and he might end up in jail on game day = smart

And iirc he tested positive for *synthetic* marijuana last year; which is reason enough to kick him off just for being a dumbass.

Oh hai there!

[www.gq.com image 240x300]

Don't know who that is but I assume its someone that jumped from sophmore year to the CFL? Huh. Well, they certainly wouldn't make it in the NFL.

NFL refuses to take players that haven't been out of high school for at least 3 years. That's Maurice Clarett, who unsuccessfully sued the NFL to enter the draft early after he was suspended and kicked out of OSU before his junior year. I think he actually made it to the NFL briefly before being convicted of robbery and going to prison.


He's out now, he has played a couple of seasons for the UFL team the Omaha Nighthawks.

Does New Orleans have a football team yet? They're Division II now, and he'd be allowed to play right away unless the drug tests void it.
 
2012-08-11 11:02:02 AM  
Ok I realize this is a sports thread and not a weed thread, but I was thinking about this and probably one good step on the way to getting marijuana legalized would be for all NCAA and pro athletes to just smoke as much as they want and basically go on "strike" you can't have a football season if 80% of players are suspended for violating the policy.

Obviously there are two potential set backs here...1 is how many athletes enjoy smoking, if its something like 10% I guess it wouldnt have too much effect, but maybe if that 10% are your Heisman / all star crop which hold alot of money draw for your program, then it still is a pretty big hit. Who the fark wants to see the backup squads playing?

number 2 would be the value placed on smoking versus having a spot on the team. Clearly this badger guy places a lot of value on being able to toke up at his own leisure, but was it really worth the potential millions lost if it means the end of his career (this dilemma would apply to many "straight" people who happen to enjoy weed on occasion, i.e. is the personal freedom to get high even worth a normal mediocre 50k a year job?)...I think the vast majority of people would be willing to pass up on the green plant for sufficient green paper. (pardon my ignorance of the subject, he might still be able to play in the NFL right?)
