    This I am bummed about. Gregory??? Is this real?

    Love this kid! It will suck to have one of our leading tacklers out for 4 games. I sure hope this is joke. :/

    Wow! I am more surprised that you actually believe what your favorite beat writer is tweeting... Go back to your Raydurs boards, troll.

    If anyone needed PEDs it's Steve Gregory.

    Time to get Stuckey some reps for these last two pre-season games. But Oliver should probably be the guy to play vs. the Patriots.

    He was in on some tackles yesterday. Again, it's against the Cards but he was making noise.

    Gregory will hurt. The kid is in on everything.

    This is no joke... :icon_evil:

    Gregory suspended four games

    By Kevin Acee
    Monday, October 4, 2010 at 10:30 a.m.

    The Chargers will be without starting strong safety Steve Gregory for four games following his positive test for a banned substance.
    Gregory tested positive in May but appealed that finding. He will begin serving his suspension today and be eligible to return on Nov. 1.
    The Chargers will likely turn to Paul Oliver to replace Gregory, as well as hope to accelerate rookie Darrell Stuckey. The team's fourth-round draft pick has been active just one game and sat out all last week with a hamstring injury.
    Gregory had an interception Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Still swinging and missing. You really should stop making yourself look like this.

    Ahh, they knew this might be coming down then. I suspect the secondary has been planning for it.

    Since he's about the smallest guy on the field I dont blame him. :p - Do we know what the banned substance was? MaryJ or roids?

    I've explained my avatar before. I have a lot of respect for LT. Call him my SD sports hero.

    it's just my way to show respect to the best Charger to ever play the game, then get rode out of town by a fanbase that is ever amusing. Not to mention he is proving all the loud mouth doubters wrong. We havent heard a single LT hate thread come out of the works. They were a definite before the season to some around here. :)

    If you do a quick search on any topic involving LT since his departure you'd know I'm on your side on that regard.

    But I draw the line at sporting an avatar of another team. Regardless of the circumstances that led to his departure and his status as a San Diego hero the fact remains he's still a New York Jet and consequently you're a "Chargers fan" sporting a Jets avatar.

    If you want to show respect to the guy through your avatar why not find an LT avatar with him wearing a Bolts jersey? Or are you more of a Tomlinson fan than you are a Chargers fan?

    Perhaps if you chose an avatar of LT in a Chargers uniform, people would have an easier time believing you are a Chargers fan.

    If Gregory was on steroids, I hope he asks for his money back. He might be the smallest safety in the league.

    As for Tucker, the main reason this hurts is that we are so thin at OLB. Hope Merriman comes back soon.

    But that wouldn't be controversial and would, therefore, be detrimental to his goal of getting people "worked up".

    Not sure how this turned into a thread about me? I've explained as much as I want to.

    Why are you telling me what my avatar needs to be and how to express my respect, again?

    You cant be this full of yourself can you? This harassment is getting weak.

    I'm not telling you how to do anything. You can wear the avatar if you want.

    I'm just saying it makes you look like a Jets fan. :icon_shrug:

    I'm sure he will. But then he'll be out again.

    I actually believe Gregory on not knowing what he was putting in him. Dude hits like a truck but he is about as far from the poster child for HGH as you can get. Has none of the signs, his head is absolutely tiny.

    I'm pretty jaded about positive PED tests nowadays and the excuses that come up but I will say this much - Gregory doesn't know what happened but unlike others (ahem Merriman) he took responsibility for what goes in his body and apologized to his team. That makes me more likely to believe him. Stuckey will probably get the starts vs Rams/Raiders (good way to ease him in) and Oliver more likely against the Pats/Tennessee

    Also please remember that there are some of us who appreciate everything the guy did, but didn't exactly appreciate some of his behavior after he left. Not liking some of the digs at the front office, coaching staff, and players does not equate to hate.

    I think this about proves the nfl's drug tests are bogus or theres something wrong with their tests. CAuse gregory is as straight a kid as they come. Ask his mother. I bet she's pizzed at the nfl right now for bad mouthing her son.

    I want to believe him but he sucked like 2 years ago and now all of the sudden he's making plays.
