Fairness and Fairplay


Well-Known Member
I've noticed that the conception of fairness and fairplay is a backroom topic here. When brought up it's ignored. Is it intentional? Do posters not notice? Or do posters feel authority and a media tilt is all that is worthy of discussion?

For instance:
Substance abuse problems
On June 7, 2013, the NFL announced that Gordon would be suspended for the first two games of the 2013 season due to violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.[19]

On August 27, 2014, Gordon acknowledged that the NFL suspended him for one year for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.[20] On September 19, 2014, his suspension was reduced to 10 games amidst the new NFL drug policy. Gordon was officially reinstated on November 17.[21]

On December 27, 2014, exactly one year removed from being selected into the Pro Bowl, the Browns suspended Gordon from the final game of the 2014 season due to a violation of team rules.[22]

As of January 2015, Gordon faced another year-long suspension due to testing positive for alcohol use.[23] Gordon entered the NFL's substance abuse program after pleading guilty to a driving while impaired charge in September 2014 and was prohibited from consuming alcohol during his time in the program.[24] Gordon was officially suspended for one year on February 3, 2015 and won't be able to return until the start of the 2016 season.[25]
Josh Gordon flunks another drug test
Did any of the hang em high commenters bother to delve into the guidelines that made Gordon such a menace in their eyes?
