    Fox sports is now reporting that Bell did not miss one drug test . He missed MULTIPLE drug tests . That tells me one thing . He was using for some time and he knew there was no way he could pass his tests . The fact that hes obviously been using most of the offseason to have missed multiple tests says loud and clear that he would rather smoke weed and get high than be a Pittsburgh Steeler . With that said , show his butt the door and move on . Hes a disgrace as a team mate and he doesnt deserve to wear the black and gold .

    Agreed. and let’s not forget to hold Tomlin somewhat accountable. These things continue to happen on his watch!

    Are the Rooneys soft on pot? As we all know, there is a national debate in progress regarding the legalization of pot. The movement is largely advanced by the political left (i.e. Democrats) and the Rooneys have supported Democratic candidates for years. They have also taken extraordinary measures on behalf of pot users (S. Holmes, Blount, Bryant, and Bell in recent years), while summarily dismissing players who strike their wives (Wilson) or urinate on a parking meter (J. Reed). History leads one to suspect the Rooneys will forgive Bell this second trespass IF he accepts a reasonable offer to renew his contract. But history also reflects that applying discipline and enforcing rules unequally, creating a class of players that are above the law, hurts team morale in the long run.

    In the comments posted on this subject, everyone assumes that Bell missed his drug test(s) because he was using. While one is not proof of the other, it seems a reasonable assumption. But does the CBA allow the Steelers or the NFL to make that assumption? Or was it a condition imposed after Bell’s first violation? Does anyone on the Steelersgab staff know Bell’s legal status on this issue?

    As regulars here know, I was not convinced Bell was worth re-signing before this incident. With this incident in the scales, I agree with DaveB and others here that Bell should go. And frankly, I don’t think cutting Bell would be as big a loss as many fans seem to think. Team morale will be better for it, and ultimately it is the welfare of the team and the franchise itself that weighs against keeping Bell.
