Anyone else get the feeling Bell will be playing the first 4 weeks?

When you are read into the NFL Drug Testing program the rules are made crystal clear...crystal. He missed a scheduled test...hell, he wasn't even in Stage 3 of the program where he's subjected to unannounced testing (he will be now though)...it was a SCHEDULED test. I'm hearing he changed his cell phone number or something and "forgot" to notify? Don't know if that's true or not...but whatever the case may be, it makes no sense to miss a drug test unless there was an emergency that is documented.

Hey...I hope he gets nothing as a Steeler's fan. But I'm counting on a full 4-games. Forgetting, or changing your phone number, or going on vacation without making prior arrangements, etc. are not excuses to the NFL.

The only out I could see is if Bell had documentation showing he did properly inform the league of the changed number and the league just lost it. We're talking about a previously suspended player with a history of making poor choices vs. NFL corporate, so it's really a toss up on who screwed up.
12 teams - 1QB/2RB/2WR/1TE/1FLX/1K/1D
YARDS: 1pt per 25 passing, 1 pt per 10 rushing/receiving
ALL TD=6 pts. PPR=1/2 pt. ALL T/O = -2 pts.
Team Bonus: 6 point bonuses if your starters combine for any of the following:
300+ passing yards, 200+ rushing yards, 300+ receiving yards
QB: Brady RB: D. Martin, McCaffery, Gallman, McGuire, Cohen, David Johnson
WR: D. Parker, D. Jackson, M. Bryant, R. Matthews, Jaron Brown TE: Walker D: Chiefs

Clear as mud...suspended 3 games not 4, and remains in Stage 2 of the program versus getting elevated. Wierd...but hey, 3 is better than 4 so as a fan I'm good with it.

Trying to predict NFL disciplinary action is a risky business. I feel like they have a wheel of misfortune with suspensions and fines on it, and they just give it a big spin.

Whatever is expected to happen wont. Unless its Gordon. Like he wont get in trouble again before he is on the field for a regular season game.

Well, I guess Goddell being booed at the draft is always a given.
