Raiders WR Holmes suspended for four games

 

[Raiders second-year wide receiver Andre Holmes was suspended for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances, according to an NFL press release Saturday, Steve Corkran of Bayareanewsgroup reports.

“Andre Holmes of the Oakland Raiders has been suspended without pay for the team’s first four games of the 2013 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.

Holmes will be eligible to return to the Raiders’ active roster on Monday, September 30 following the team’s September 29 game against the Washington Redskins.

Holmes is eligible to participate in all preseason practices and games.”]

So the question must be asked. How much do you really have to suck in order to take a performance-enhancing drug just to be mediocre? Of course we all know about how those ole rebel Raiders used to roid up to win. I guess old habits die-hard.

  • Where's Dennis Allen at? Why haven't we heard him address this yet? What's he going to do show the rest of his team that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated? Why didn't he share any with the rest of the team? I WANT ANSWERS!
  • Better yet where is the big YB post demanding answers by their number one fan? Instead we get fluff pieces about the signing of a has been guard who is most famous for being stepped on by Fat Albert Haynesworth.
  • That's funny
  • Just doing my best impersonation of our Raider's fan when he's discussing the Eagles. A little over the top but not by much.
  • I would say you were spot on.
  • EZ- lets not forget Andy Reids son was a steroid distributor
  • Wow just when I thought you've reached your scumbag limit you go and raise the bar. I have to warn you that comments like this one will eventually push your new best bud away from you again. This time I'm going to take you down this road that you wish to travel. Now Andy's son did have steroids in his room at the time of his death; however I'm not sure of the quantity. Nevertheless steroids on a football facility is kind of a bad thing. So lets say you are correct in your implications that Garrett was distributing to the Eagles players. Well the first question that must be ask would be to who? Well who was Garret's friend on the team? Since I know you won't answer the question "it's not your style to answer questions that turns all of your crap to nothing" so I will answer it for you. that would be Mike Vick. Now who came into camp this season sporting 4 pounds of muscle with the speed to leave 25 year olds in the dust? That would be Mike Vick. So if you really want the NFL to investigate Garret's alleged steroid distribution, then all you would need to do is write you congressman and have him investigate Vick.
  • That's the funniest part about flip liking many of hollywood's comments and acting like his comments now make sense. He ignores the fact that hollywood is still the same hollywood he has buried for years...the only thing that has changed is...BIRDFLIPPER!
  • Truly he's come unglued for some reason, but I don't care. I'm actually glad he has and decided to block me. Since he's been gone most of the convos have been intellectual and good. Even if we all disagreed we still are able to be decent with one another save hollywood. Since he's been gone I've we've only had to deal with one nut job and not two.
  • Another misconception by flip. He thinks by blocking you his discussions have gotten more to the point and deeper (that's why he claims he blocks barkers but the real reason he's blocked us is because he doesn't like reading the truth about himself). That's fine if he considers his discussions with hollywood more insightful. Look at his posts lately...all with less than a dozen comments and only a few of them with anybody but hollywood. I would guess it's mainly because most fans want to be positive about the new coaching staff and the new players...they want to be excited and there are things to be excited about instead of looking for only negatives which is what flip does anymore (no one wants to SERIOUSLY discuss Raider football on here either but he just continues to waste his time). I've stated it before...nothing wrong with discussing your concerns but flip and hollywood go out of their way to whine. Just look at his waste of space post on Vick and how the Eagles should sign Iverson to take over as the Eagles QB? What the hell was that all about? How does that prove any point at all that he was trying to make? Of course the only one that touched that page of confusion was hollywood. Just like you typed...unglued.
  • The temper tantrums of a crybaby to go with the thoughts of a lunatic. Still even the
    lunatic's antics are wearing thin on the cry baby. If he blocks the lunatic again he may find that
    no one will write anything on his trash writing and then he would be in complete agreement
    with himself.
  • That garbage I didn't even read. It seems to be nothing more than the babbling of a lunatic. I guess in his mind its a good piece of satire. It's nothing more than Internet space waste. Like I wrote earlier posts have become much nicer since that bozo took himself out of the picture.
  • Absolute garbage. He discusses using stats to twist things. It's funny how he and hollywood disregard stats until they want to use them. I've seen 1-6 for Foles and his interception numbers being thrown around to bash Foles but never see anyone comment that his turnovers were inflated by his first game as a starter in the NFL (2 picks against Washington and one as a fill in against Dallas the week before and only two the next 5 weeks but hey, who's counting?). His completion percentage was also killed that first game when he had his coach drop him back 46 times as a rookie (one of only two games where he didn't reach 60%...45.7..and he also threw 48.5 against the Bengals but you have to give the rookie some bad games especially when you're willing to look past the faults of a 10 year veteran...and use how many times the veteran passes per game as an excuse). Double standards like usual, Eazy...but we are used to that with flip, aren't we?


    I actually like this a bit better, Eazy because one thing flip can't do is stop us from reading his ridiculous posts and commenting to each other about them. At least we don't have to continuously point out his BS to him and then read more lies by him trying to justify them. Saves me some time.
