Dallas defensive tackle DAVID IRVING found out that the league was suspending him for a THIRD time . . . and he was FED UP. His first two suspensions were for four games each. The first was for violating the league’s PED policy, and the second for violating the substance abuse policy.
Last week, he got hit with another suspension for substance abuse . . . this time indefinitely.
He said, quote, "Basically guys, I quit . . . they wanna talk about a suspension and all this other nonsense. I'm outta there. I'm not doing this [stuff] no more." Then he held up a neatly rolled joint and started smoking it
For what it's worth, David said "it's not about smoking weed . . . it's much, much bigger than that." He said he gets concussions every day, and he doesn't like all the stuff he's being prescribed. He said, quote, "Plants over pills."
He also said he's not giving up MILLIONS for weed, because he's been in the league five years and he "still hasn't seen a million.
And he said he loves football, but, quote, "I don't love the NFL. The NFL is not football, and y'all need to understand that. What y'all see us do, the game and [stuff], that's like, what, 20% of the real [stuff] that goes on?"
He later added, quote, "I'll Kaepernick MYSELF . . . before THEY Kaepernick my ass."
