It's one of those weeks in the offseason when I'm not expecting there to be much news so let's take a poll of the CSR membership thoughts on the recent revelation that NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year LB Brian Cushing failed a steriod test back in Sept. 2009:
Now, Cushing has violated the NFL's performance enhancing drugs policy. Whatever the drug was, it definitely helped him win the award in 2009 seeing as the positive test came in September of 2009.
This has caused an outcry of folks demanding that his rookie of the year award be stripped. As it turns out, the AP is listening. AP writer Dave Goldberg tweets a "re-vote is possible". Implicit in those words are that the AP is indeed discussing whether or not to allow Cushing to retain the award.
So it sounds like the AP just might strip Cushing of the honor which will only lead a number of other questions such as the good ones mentioned in the link to the quote. But without getting into all that mess what do you think should be done? Take the poll and let's here your thoughts.
