Chargers LB tested clean 19 of 20 times
By Chris Mortensen
Special to ESPN.com

If an effort to distance Shawne Merriman's name from being attached to a new policy, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has revealed to ESPN's Chris Mortensen that the Chargers star linebacker has tested clean on 19 of 20 random tests for performance enhancing drug since he entered the league two years ago.

Merriman was suspended for 4 games in 2006 for testing positive for steroids, which he has steadfastly claimed came from a tainted supplement. As a consequence, the NFL and the NFLPA have agreed that players who are suspeneded under the policy will not be eligible for the Pro Bowl, starting with the upcoming season. A formal announcement is expected prior to the season.

Leery that the new policy will be know as the "Merriman rule," Goodell has asked the union to include all players suspended under any existing policy, such as player conduct, to be omitted from the Pro Bowl. NFL Players Association Executive Director Gene Upshaw refused the proposal.

However, at the behest of Merriman, the union gave the league permission to disclose Merriman's testing results, overiding the confidentiality rules in place.

"This is something Shawne wanted to get out," Goodell said.

Doesn't matter. You goof up once, you're gonna pay, regardless.

That's how it works in the professionals.

That's funny. For every 20 times I didn't kill someone, I only killed somebody once.

Doesn't matter. Why was he taking that shit in the first place?

I think it was meant in more of a remark to people who posted things like "he always been on roids"

It's good of you to come here and apologize for your player taking roids, but it really doesn't mean much unless it comes from him. We'll be more than ready to listen if you can get him to show up.

If you need a perfect score on your last test in order to not fail a class, and you get a question wrong, then you've failed the class.

I think he's trying to prove what Merriman said was true when he said he didn't intentionally take it, but hey who knows.

Maybe his preparation for the other tests was better. I guess it's hard to buy that he only took steroids one time and not any other. Or maybe he really is telling the truth.

He was probably shoving clean piss up his thimble with a hose.

Merriman was Caught being a cheater, and he dances like a sissy queer who shit himself in white pants while having a seizure.

Hey Shawne, pointing out with a big neon sign that you screwed up and forgot your masking agent doesn't make anyone think better of you. And the fact that he hasn't let this subject drop speaks volumes.
