Normally, news like this wouldn't faze me, but I just got done listening to the MNF crew talk about how Koren had turned his life around after recent arrests and was thankful to be in the league. Kinda hard to take him seriously after this if it is true.
Just goes to show you how athletes often claim to have been rehabilitated when they are far from it. See also: Little, Leonard
I think this brings a whole new series of problems to Robinson's life. If I'm not mistaking, this makes him eligible for a year-long suspension, which could be enough time for him to fall off the wagon many more times. Unless the NFL mandates a strong rehab program, Robinson could be pulling a Maurice Clarett very soon and no one wants that to happen after he was making so much progress.
My question to you is, if Favre did pull the "I'm retiring; release me" thing with the Jets with the intention of promptly un-retiring and joining the Vikings, would the Vikings really want to put up with his bullshit?
