Yeah, it’s a disease, an addiction, something people struggle with over a lifetime but all I can think of right now is the old Bobby Heenan line, “He’s got a million dollar body and a ten cent brain.”
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has been suspended for one year for violating the NFL’s Substance Abuse policy. Last year he was suspended the first four games after a fourth (?!) violation. That placed him in the league’s high risk category making him subject to increased testing. Bryant evidently didn’t disappoint, blowing right by his fifth violation (which would’ve cost him 10 games) and going directly to a sixth resulting in a one year vacation.
