Speaking of cheaters…


Looks like it’ll be lights out for the Chargers Shawne Merriman. The pro bowl linebacker has been suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league’s steroids policy.

I can’t say I’m that surprised. The guy is a complete nut job and you had to assume that all of the wild dancing he does after sacks was drug induced. I figured it was coke, but steroids will do. I’m just wondering if he was on the juice when he knocked out those four kids his sophomore year of high school.

To be fair, Merriman says that people need to hear his side of the story and the reason why he’s appealing. I just hope it’s not a piss poor Rafael Palmeiro excuse. At least come up with a good lie.

It’s been quite a tumultuous year for the Chargers defense. Merriman is the third player that will be forced to miss time for non-injury related circumstances. Linebacker Steve Foley is out for the year after being shot by an off duty cop and safety Terrence Kiel is facing felony charges for slinging cough syrup.
