His off field game is ready.

If Al Davis were still kickin' he might have a chance, otherwise, even the Arena FB league will steer clear.

Does he have a job? I don't mean as a minor league football administrator, I mean something where it'll matter to someone if he starts using again, since he undoubtedly will the first time he loses

Sounds like good Dallas Cowboy material

According to 30 for 30, after the NFL dropped him, he started a shop where he makes surfboards. So, he's his own boss, and probably not subject to drug tests.

I'm pretty certain drugs are mandatory in the surf industry.

I remember reading about this guy when he was something like 14/15 yrs old and how his dad was basically dominating his life, making him do all sorts of things to make him an NFL level QB.  Dude had never eaten a piece of candy or cake in his life, even when he went to another kids birthday party - he had to take his own substitutes.  It's no wonder he turned out as messed up as he did.  Got to college and got his first taste of "candy"* and didn't know how to deal with it and then found out he'd built up no resistance to it whatsoever.

*candy standing metaphorically for drugs, alcohol, girls/sex, etc.

Yeah, this.  Anyone who systematically bashes Marinovich is an ass.  Dude was farked up at an early age.  This has been well-documented, in documentaries and print.

At least he has a semblance of a career to fall back on, a lot of kids forced to live out the vicarious fantasies of their football obsessed Dads are messed up bad enough that they'll spend their adult lives in and out of rehab/prison.

That's why they drug-test.  If you pass, that's a suspension.
