The whole thing was a mistake. When his lawyer advised him to drop the appeal, Merriman thought he meant "drop a pill" and said, "Sure!"

But we're Chiefs fan, we should be used to the smell.

The same thing happens in baseball. When you allow players to appeal, they can just manipulate the process to serve them best. I'm all for due process, but when you're first and second samples both test positive for banned substances, I don't see what there is to appeal.
