    Default Sources: Santonio Holmes facing four-game suspension

    Late Friday afternoon brought good news for the Pittsburgh Steelers, with the report from ESPN that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger won't be charged with sexual assault in Milledgeville, Georgia.

    Now for the bad news.

    Multiple sources have advised us that receiver Santonio Holmes is facing a four-game suspension under the league's substance-abuse policy. It's presently unknown whether Holmes tested positive for a prohibited substance or committed some other violation of the policy, such as missing a required test. It's our current understanding that the internal NFL appeals process has not been finalized.

    Under the substance-abuse policy, a four game suspension comes after multiple violations. The fact that Holmes, the MVP of Super Bowl XLIII, is facing a four-game suspension means that Holmes previously has paid a fine in the amount of three seventeenths of his base salary (i.e., three game checks).

    Though we're not aware of the specific identity of the substance involved, Holmes has a history with marijuana. In 2008, he was cited for marijuana possession, prompting the Steelers to suspend him for one game with pay. Recently, he posted on Twitter a message indicating an intention to "wake n bake," slang for smoking marijuana upon getting out of bed.

    Holmes also has recently been accused of throwing a drink in the face of a woman at an Orlando nightclub. The alleged victim has both sued Holmes and pursued criminal liability, after indicating on the scene that she did not want to press charges. His lawyer has denied the accusations, recently claiming that a witness has signed a sworn statement taking responsibility for throwing the drink. The suspension Holmes faces arose independently of this alleged incident.

    I'm guessing the FO knew of this coming suspension prior to the ARE signing.


    Could explain why they told him he's the #3 WR.

    Bye-Bye Santonio.

    The Rooney's have to be completely embarrassed by this guy and Ben.

    We will release Santonio, get nothing in return, he will then clean up his act, then become a great addition to the Patriots .

    Without reference for the sources, I'm not sure how much credence to give this. Again, it's a wait-and-see moment.

    -at least I am no longer under the illusions I once had that our players were any more well behaved than players of other ball clubs- better to know the truth than to have the wool pulled over our eyes so we won't be taken aback by 100 million dollar idiots and Sb mvp's that haunt night clubs at 3 am.

    It seems that this is being fairly widely reported, but all seems to stem back to Mike Florio and his un-named sources.

    I think I'll maintain a holding pattern.

    You're right, War, we just have to wait and see on this report on Holmes....as well as the Ben source that no charges will be filed we still have to wait and see as it isn't official yet and the DA can always change his mind and file charges. We just don't know yet.

    when they can figure out how to prevent it from being as easy as dropping a seed in a hole in your yard to acquire. They would surely want their tax money out of it, just like alcohol.

    Okay, enough please. I deleted Fosl's post. No politics. You know the rules. Fair warning. I will start handing out points and if I have to, I gotta start week bannings if rules are being flaunted. Sorry.

    Florio is such a ******bag. Can anyone find any other sources this news/rumor came from?

    In any case, if Holmes is suspended it's just another sign that points towards Holmes exit out of Pittsburgh. Pretty sad, really. If you're going to smoke pot, and you're a pro athlete, don't talk about it! Especially on a site on the internet that anyone can view! How dumb is this guy?

    The internet brings out this strange behavior. I've seen pictures of kids and young adults that they posted of themselves doing things, that when I was thei age I'd be trying to hide.
