    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.

        Is this because of the DUI? If so it's just another reason for me to dislike Fuhrer Goodell.


        The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

        If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

              Eh, we still got Crockett, Fargas, O'neal and Griffith to run the rock. Not to mention the possibility of Michael Bush being used. At this point I guess LaMont will get about 50% of the carries, when regularily he'd get like 35%...

              that is plain supposition though.

                Yeah, I'm not expecting huge numbers, but he has gained a little value from this.

                  So putting not only your life, but the lives of anyone else who is on the road, on the line because you are a stupid idiot doesn't warrant a suspension. I'd bet a majority of people would lose their jobs if their employer found out they got a DUI. Dominic Rhodes is being suspended for four days.

                        Dont believe he tested positive for anything...this has to do w/ his DUI. Torrie Cox was also suspened today.

                          Since when is a DUI related to the substance-abuse program?

                            If he disobeyed the substabnce abuse policy it's his own fault.

                            Even worse for the Raiders who signed him knowing of this..

                              “We are very troubled by Dominic Rhodes arrest for DUI,” Colts President Bill Polian said in a statement. “We will have no further comment until the case has been dealt with by the justice system.”

                              He said Rhodes’ contract expires Feb. 28, when he becomes a free agent, and that the back would be subject to NFL discipline under the substance abuse policy.

                              This was before he became a Raider.
