Cleveland Browns star wideout, Josh Gordon, has yet again been denied reinstatement into the NFL. The last time Gordon played in an NFL game was Dec. 21, 2014. And it will be a while longer before the NFL allows him back in the league. Gordon will remain suspended indefinitely.
Let’s check in with Twitter to see what people had to say about this.

So the NFL will allow drunk drivers, murderers, woman beaters, rapists, and gun convicts reinstation but Josh Gordon is denied over weed???

If only Josh Gordon had beaten women he’d be playing in the NFL right now.

Josh Gordon denied NFL reinstatement. I’ll state obvious by saying I’m confused that smoking pot gets you banned, but beating women doesn’t.

It annoys me that Josh Gordon isn’t allowed to play in the NFL but Joe Mixon is.

Josh Gordon hasn’t played in the NFL for 2 years because he smokes weed, but players who beat their wife get 4 game suspensions?

Apparently Gordon must have committed the unpardonable sin. Must be something different than just smoking weed because the NFL just recently reinstated Pittsburgh Steelers Martavis Bryant after he was suspended for over a year for breaking the NFL’s drug policy. Either way this is not a good look by the NFL. They allow players with DUI’s and who beat women back into the league, but punish more harshly those who fail a drug test. The NFL should probably get their priorities straight. Not sure how many more black eyes like this they can take that have happened under Roger Goodell’s watch.
