  • San Diego LB Cooper suspended 4 games

    ...for substance abuse.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3348671

    This isn't the first time he's been caught with a banned substance. When he was in college, he was caught with over 1,000 steroid pills.

    Oldie but a goodie.

    Time to wake up for Anthony Waters.


    Word on the Charger boards is ephedra. Dumb.

        As opposed to the Raiders, from which we expect absolutely nothing.

        Cooper screwed himself and it's embarrassing, not to mention dangerous given the deaths associated with Ephedra. I won't defend him.

          Yeah because two players have been caught with them...

          Cooper's a moron then, which is a shame because he did really well last year. Hopefully Anthony Waters can step up big time for us, because otherwise this could spell some trouble.

            More than 2. Cooper, Castillo, and Merriman have now all been caught with some sort of substance.

              Will this help the Raiders beat SD in the first game? I doubt it.

              Also, I doubt that the overall problem is more prevelant in SD than any where else, more or less. As much as I would like to talk smack about SD, but the facts are what they are. I just hope no Raiders are doping and if they are they don't get caught. Call me cynical but I figure more guys are getting away with it then get caught.

                This is very disappointing no matter what the substance was.

                  With Hall and Asomugha and Russell, anything is possible.

                  Those Chargers and their substances. *shakes heads*

                  Its almost as if every team has an identity

                  Chargers - Substance Abuse
                  Bengals - Arrests galore
                  Raiders - Bad attitude (this may be changing?)
                  Falcons - Killing Dogs (our DT also got caught killing his GFs dog)
                  Patriots - Cheaters

                    You basically did with your Raiders comment....

                    What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
                    they get smoked.

                      Haha, no that was just a backhanded comment about the Raiders being terrible.

                        No thst was just him pointing out that the Raiders have become excessively pathetic recently. As someone who was born in Oakland, the state of the team wounds me. His comment wasn't false, it was just irrelevent to the discussion.

                        This doesn't suprise me. PED users tend to come in bunches, due to system level monitoring by the various teams. It seems like the Chargers are the team that's lax in monitoring.

                          God Damn Cooper just doing something idotic again... He really needs to wake up. This really pisses me off Cooper showed some serious potential last year and I thought he would play a significant role in the Chargers defense this year... Waters will really have to step up which I think he can. Cooper loses oppurtunity and the respect of his fans and teammates... Its a shame.

                            As much as you like to jump in everytime something goes wrong for SD Castillo has never been caught in the NFL with steroids, that was college. And thats still 3. I know, its a huge difference between 2 and 3 right?...
