    Chargers LB tested clean 19 of 20 timesBy Chris Mortensen
    Special to ESPN.com


    If an effort to distance Shawne Merriman's name from being attached to a new policy, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has revealed to ESPN's Chris Mortensen that the Chargers star linebacker has tested clean on 19 of 20 random tests for performance enhancing drug since he entered the league two years ago.

    Merriman was suspended for 4 games in 2006 for testing positive for steroids, which he has steadfastly claimed came from a tainted supplement. As a consequence, the NFL and the NFLPA have agreed that players who are suspeneded under the policy will not be eligible for the Pro Bowl, starting with the upcoming season. A formal announcement is expected prior to the season.

    Leery that the new policy will be know as the "Merriman rule," Goodell has asked the union to include all players suspended under any existing policy, such as player conduct, to be omitted from the Pro Bowl. NFL Players Association Executive Director Gene Upshaw refused the proposal.

    However, at the behest of Merriman, the union gave the league permission to disclose Merriman's testing results, overiding the confidentiality rules in place.

    "This is something Shawne wanted to get out," Goodell said.

    If you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin'.

    Most these dudes are on HGH and anyone who does not believe it is just naieve. :yes:

    The 19 out of 20 reference does not mean ****.

    All it takes is one failed test and you are cooked. Who cares if he took a million tests???

    He failed just one and that is all you need to get popped.

    Tests can't prove **** these days. Merriman lost bulk, whether that was just natural from the season or not. He was more effective at 270 and looked like he was 250 after he came back from his suspension. Merriman ain't any quicker at 250 than 270 believe it or not... he can carry that bulk. Now he loses his bullrushing ability and force in taking on blockers and hitting the ballcarrier.

    You're full of crap. Shawne had 8.5 sacks in the 7 games before his suspension and 8.5 in the 5 games after, including 3.5 against Seattle. At least one of those sacks was a bull rush of Walter Jones.

    Stick to what you do best Frenchie--posting racist, inflammatory comments and promoting gambling addiction.

    LOL. What are you talking about?

    Merriman tested positive probably sometime in august. The suspensions just don't take effect right away. There is no way he lost 20 lbs from august to the end of the season.

    Denial is one of the many symptoms. I can get you in touch with people that can help you.
