    So, this is very awesome. Pats are paying for Gordon's rehab, working with NFL and NFLPA, believe a return is possible. He's working out in Florida.

    Great news indeed!! On the possible return... would the NFL even give him another go? How long of a suspension is he looking at?

    It's termed as "indefinite" but the story notes the Patriots are working with the NFL on this.

    I’m not understanding the “diluted sample” thing. I mean the guy apologized and he’s in rehab, right? Maybe the NFL is looking for an excuse to get him back?

    I assume that meant the test wasn't positive because the sample was messed with in some fashion, which the NFL equates to a positive test.

    That is a good assumption.

    Per Yahoo Sports, Gordon could file for reinstatement as early as May.

    "Remember: drug-use is self-abuse!"

    ...some would argue it's self-care, Nancy Reagan, but I suppose that depends on your point of view.

    Typically you drink a shit ton of water right before the test and hope your body creates enough creatine to pass the creatin/mL threshold while reducing the toxin to thresholds below the cut off. Search for "How to Pass an ETG Test" for more info. Most likely his pee was watered down if they were looking for drinking. With THC (or other fat-soluble chemicals) the trick is to get your lipid (fat) cells to be uptaking (i.e. getting fatter) for the days before the test, taking the fat soluble THC with it to get you under the threshold. I read about this somewhere ...

    A few months ago I got a random drug test at work. I had literally gone to the bathroom less than a minute before I was informed of the test. I drank a liter of water waited 10-15 then provided my sample. It looked like I peed straight water. Made a comment to the guy if it was going to be ok and he said he thought it would be. Needless to say it come back diluted and was immediately given another test. Wasnt an issue for me but every organization is different.

    Sorry, I was not clear. I understand what a diluted sample is, just why it was used in the article/Tweet like “oh, it was just a diluted sample.” I mean obviously he was still taking drugs, so I don’t see how diluted sample is viewed as anything less than positive.

    My bad ... I guess he fucked up either way, only dilution can be an accident so if you're being tested say weekly and 1 out of 20 weeks it came back diluted (especially for an athlete that drinks liters of water a day) most P.O.s would let one slide when you passed the other 19.

    in the Military getting your number called and drinking 1-2 liters in 10-20 mins of water so you could pee and get on with your day was common. No idea how they tested some of those samples. (they probably didnt....but we THOUGHT they would so we didnt do drugs....well most of us anyway.)

    Yea, I remember those days. I also remember standing in line for hours so they could test an entire battalion.

    In the late 80s they’d test in a X pattern based on the box of samples, or at least that is what I remember the corpsman on our ship saying.
