"Gordon tested positive for alcohol, a source said, confirming a report by Pro Football Talk."

When you fail so many drug tests I think alcohol becomes a "banned substance" at some point

Very common for players to be told by the NFL that they cannot drink. Gordon has had drunk driving issues and substance abuse issues.

I really find it difficult that the NFL would place a NO drink order on him.  I cant speak for all but many indulge in alcohol.  Even if your not the type to consume 4-6 drinks per day, I myself drink very rarely. I may have have 1-3 drinks in a month.  But to tell a man you can even have a sip of wine to me is crazy..  There has to be some type of leeway here.

If i recall, people on probation are not suppose to consume alcohol but that is the probationary system. Josh Gordon getting policed by the NFL to me is ridiculous. Please somebody shed some light on this for me Huh

I thought it was pretty common knowledge.

The bottom line is this... Josh Gordon KNEW that he wasn't allowed to drink alcohol. He knew he'd be tested, and he knew that if he got caught, he'd get suspended. He had to know that, if he got suspended, his NFL career could come to an abrupt end.

...but he still went out and had a drink.

So, I can only conclude that the guy is a complete moron, or he didn't really care that much about playing in the NFL.

So there is at least one WR in the league who is a bigger douchebag than Wallace.   Grin

I've seen some people making the case that he might not have known he was breaking a rule. I call BS. I've seen the word probation used in this thread and that is a pretty good comparison. Gibson was on probation with the NFL. Anyone on probation knows what the rules are that they have to follow. They get broken either because you don't care, as has been suggested, or because you have addiction issues.

What Wallace did was literally nothing compared to what many NFL players do these days. Not even on the radar

When you fail 3 tests nobody should have sympathy for when you fail your 4th. "Not Knowing" isn't a valid excuse at that point. I agree

I know, hence the  Grin at the end of my comment to show that I was making it with tongue in cheek.  But I was referring to Wallace in general and not just his stunt in the last game.

Aside from last game he hasn't done anything since being in the NFL to be considered a douchebag
