Jason Jones, of the Sacramento Bee, reports Oakland Raiders RB Dominic Rhodes has been suspended the first four games of the 2007 season for violation of the NFL's Substance Abuse policy. He can return to the active roster Oct. 1 and is allowed to practice during training camp while also taking part in preseason games. His suspension begins Aug. 31.

I can see he is adapting well to the Raiders way of doing things. Al Davis must be so proud.

C'mon, give him a break. He's just trying to fit it with the Raiders. Commitment to Excrement!

seriously>> oh crap.

Well, first off, Rhodes ain't exactly LT. Solid player, but nothing irreplaceable.

 

Secondly, RB is one of the few positions that the Raiders have a logjam of talent - Jordan, Fargas, Bush, and Rhodes.

 

Sucks for Rhodes, but I don't think it hurts the Raiders.

Agree on everything except for the "Sucks for Rhodes". I just have trouble getting over that "responsibility for your actions" thingy! :D

 

But the irony just oooooozes and it is pretty funny! :D

True enough. I was going more for "sucks to be him" than "pity the foo"

I know it's not devastating to the team, but it was definitely an upgrade pick up that i was looking forward to seeing this year.

Doesn't a 4-game suspension mean that he is currently experiencing strike 2 in the NFL Substance Abuse system?

 

Another question... does this in any way effect the way that he can participate in training camp and pre-season games leading up to the season?

How soon until the reports that Moss was tooo lazy to clean out his locker and DR got into the leftover stash? :D

It's interesting. I keep reading things about how Bush is going to be ready. I've been pretty skeptical, but it sure looks like the Bush era is coming sooner than later.
