NFLPA eyes ‘less punitive’ approach to recreational weed

The NFL players’ union would like to make the league’s policy on recreational marijuana use ‘less punitive,’ NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith told The Washington Post.

A proposal currently in the works first must be approved by the union’s board of player representatives and only then would be made to the league. Any changes in the league’s drug policy must be agreed upon by both sides.

As for Sherman’s regrets, those are likely tied to his sideline outburst with Carroll and offensive coordinator Darell Bevell as well as his increasingly strained relationship with local media.

There were a couple of outbursts that we had that really took us to a place we don’t want to be, Carroll said. The emotional side of it brought out some expressions that took us to a place that was a distraction.

The Seahawks’ season ended Saturday with a 36-20 loss to the Falcons as Sherman struggled to prevent Julio Jones from catching six catches for 67 yards and a touchdown.

When he wasn’t injured, Josh Hamilton was about as dangerous a hitter as anyone in baseball. He proved it for the umpteenth time against the Orioles on May 8, 2012. Hamilton’s four-homer game in Baltimore was part of a 5-for-5, 8-RBI night for the former MVP.
