Actually six games. Patrick Peterson dropped his appeal. Six games.

Every day a large portion of professional sports athletes looks a lot like the asshats on the movie the replacements that went on strike.

You know what the insurance costs on a ferrari bitch?

Some interesting points that I noticed in the article on NFL.com:
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300000 ... ed-its-out

Quote:
The six-game suspension on a player's first violation stems from a positive test plus an attempt to manipulate or mask the result


Quote:
...Peterson, who has made the Pro Bowl in all eight of his seasons but will not be eligible next season...

I find it funny when someone who is glamorized as being a pros pro and being so skilled gets busted with something like this. he didnt even seem remorseful about cheating. He seemed more annoyed about the timing of the announcement
