NFL teams would be wise to ditch the lockers

Standard

On Thursday the Drug Enforcement Agency held a press conference to annouce the arrest of 34 people in connection to a perscription drug ring.

That coupled with the news coming out of San Diego teams would be wise to ditch the drug lockers.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune RSF Prarmacuticals has lost its license to “obtain, distribute, possess, or manufacture controlled substances” as it was the compant that filled out the perscriptions of San Diego Chargers team doctor who wrote 108 perscriptions to himself.

The fact is the DEA is cracking down on anything illegal connected to controlled persription drugs.

In the end, if teams don’t start using pharmacies that deliver they will find themselves in the same situation as the Chargers.

A lockout would be a good thing

According to Mike Freeman of CBSSports, via Pro Football Talk, many current National Football League players are still spending money like water even though National Football League Players Association executive director Demaurice Smith has told them to save.

It goes to show that a lockout would be a good thing.

It absolutely sickens me to see players acting like this as the game of football is a privledge and not a right.

Also, many former players are struggling to pay their medical bills or to even put a roof over their head.

The reason that a lockout would be good as it would show what former NFL players prior to 1993 are going through as it is being predicted that a lockout could last half a season.

That would mean any player who hasn’t saved money would have to sell jewelery, cars, or any other asset they can to pay their bills as most of them live pay check to pay check due to their lavish lifestyles and bad investments.

In the end, the players need to be taken out back to the woodshed and they are soon going to get just that.
