The executive director of the NFL Player's Association, DeMaurice Smith, has issued a statement on performance-enhancing drugs in light of the Brian Cushing's suspension.
"Sport is at its best when fans can witness great achievements under the rules of fair play. Players who break those rules cheat the game, cheat the fans and cheat themselves. The Players want a clean game as well as a clean process for enforcing those rules. We intend to address both in the collective bargaining process to make the system better."
It's pretty much undisputed that Cushing tested positive for a substance that was banned by the NFL so Smith is essentially saying Cushing is a cheater, which is a strong statement from the head of the NFLPA.
