    I really want to believe him, and have come to the conclusion that the one time doesnt matter. Second time and all bets are off.

    The ridicule he's gonna get is gonna be bad. These 4 weeks of hearing sheet should really make him pizzed. Its making me pizzed hearing stuff from folks that want to see bad things happen to him. Humans can be mean. :yes:

    HE is dead to me for 4 weeks when he will mysteriously rise from the grave and continue to destroy opposing QB's.

    I don't think it will be bad at all. Does anybody even remember that Julius Peppers got popped for steroids?

    We all know the deal. I just hope he learns from this because it cannot happen again. :no:

    Yeah, I've already forgiven the guy. And he's still my favorite Charger, provided that he NEVER has another positive test.

    Don't get caught again, Shawne. :no:

    What a nightmare it would be if his productivity drops off after this... I would have to retire my powder blue 56 jersey. :icon_sad:

    I'm gonna buy as many 56 jerseys as I can now. i don't know what happened but I do know there is no way he'd take a steriod that can easily be found in a test.

    His productivity drop off?! Are you serious?! He's gonna come back even meaner and nastier than ever!
    I'm just glad that his 4th game missed is against the Raiders. The Bills' QB is the one I feel sorry for!

    Meaning if he really is on the juice, he will have a dropoff in production when he is off of it.

    I think that's what ntman68 was trying to say. After the way he played against the rams, I doubt very much he was on anything.

    Thank you I was going to put that on here but this is the first visit to the thread and you beat me to it! I think it is hillarious that they made such a big deal about it saying that Merriman was the biggest name to ever get popped for Roids! Peppers did as well but everyone seemed to have forgotten about that!! Its all a media ploy for ratings and thats it! Good call Boltssbbound!

    During Shawne's four game suspension I'm sure TO will fart or blow his nose in Dallas thus major headlines at ESPN and NFL Network and they will forget all about Mr Merriman. :rolleyes:

    I don't think that he is a Cheat but he has made a mistake and he will pay from his mistake by serving his 4 game suspension

    Oh hell, why don't you y'all just string the mofo up in the town square?
    He did something to gain an advantage (at least thats what the NFL says) and y'all swallow it hook, line and sinker.

    I'd say most of you go to the doctor if your hair hurt's, this guy gets beat on week in and week out but he's a bad guy because of an allegation from a test that could be wrong? false positives come back more than you know, he just happens to be high profile.

    FREE MERRIMAN!!!!!!!!! :bolt:

    Merriman was just on NFL Total Access. Nothing new really but it amazes me how much the media fuggin loves this guy; that can only be good for the Chargers IMO. Dude better not f*ck up again that's for sure.

    Rod Woodson even said he didn't think we would play as well as we have and it hurt him to say it. Dude is a clown and I actually liked him as a player. :rolleyes:

    Shawne is going to come back one angry man. :yes: :bolt:

    he is a good guy.

    If they'd just checked months ago they would have seen he was telling them the truth. There is no way in heck that he'd purposely take an easily traceable steriod. But the nfl is a bunch of stodgy old men who have to look good in the eyes of the crazy fan base and pubilc to keep their fortunes growing.

    Him dropping the appeal right now kinda supports my theory that he only started to appeal it because Shaun Phillips was also out.

    I last read that Shaun is to return for the Browns game, is this still the case?

    Merriman never explained how in a Blog he was asked if he was using any supplements and he responded "NO" and he has been using the supplement for 1 1/2 years by my reads....

    Uhhh ... if not labeled a cheater then maybe Liar is more appropriate?:icon_eek:
