When the athlete peed in the cup, their urine sample contained a lot of water, therefore the NFL considers this suspicious behavior to the point that the athlete is treated as if a banned substance was found. Why?
Because the banned substance test used by major league sports is inadequate.
As a result, instead of the sports league and the test designers and administrators admitting their tests are weak and insufficient, they shift the blame onto the athletes. The NFL says, it's your fault for drinking too much water. Don't drink a lot of water, it will mess up our otherwise very reliable tests.”
According to the NFL, drinking too much water is too much like cheating and trying to hide something. The NFL, with the assistance of the media, calls having too much water in your urine, “testing positive.” He tested positive for water. What would they call it if he drank milk, coffee, soda or juice? Is that suspicious also? The NFL would be better off testing the water for chlorine and fluoride, both of which are unsafe to consume, but the media helps us believe what the money and power want us to believe.
On one hand, we are supposed to believe labs can test drinking water and find substances down to parts per million and parts per billion, yet labs can't test a cup of piss because it has too much water. Doesn't a sample of drinking water taken out of the water supply, when tested, contain almost 100% water? Are we supposed to believe it's possible for urine to contain more water than drinking water? Somebody's lying somewhere or everywhere.The media says what the status quo wants the media to say because the media is a subsidiary branch of the status quo, thus on their privileged payroll, yet, we the sheeple, keep on accepting what the media parrots, without questioning or analyzing the basic premises the media promotes. Only in a sick culture can you be blamed for drinking too much water and it never cross the minds of most people that that's just weird. As expected in the case of Jabrill Peppers, the media questions the veracity of the accused instead of questioning the credibility of the facts of the accuser.
Whatever happened to first ascertaining the validity of the claim before holding someone's feet to the flame? We should know by now, that if sports leagues were really concerned about stopping illegal behavior, they would check all the moving pieces associated with the sport.
As it stands, they do a lot of focusing on players instead. When it comes to banned substances and athletes, do you really think money and power has no influence on those who take the samples and test the samples? What place in America, where money and power is involved, is free and clear of illegal activity in multiple areas of the operation? Law breaking exists in government, courts, police, religion, medical, business, sport, entertainment, food and on and on.
America is a nation of laws on a need-to-shape-shift basis. America was a nation of laws during its first two forms of slavery and America is still a nation of laws during its current form of slavery (sharecropping). Laws and rules are never about right or wrong or guilty or innocent, rather laws and rules are about weapons and tools. Thus, the game is about control over fools (believers in a law or rule).
This is what gains and maintains money and power and is what the NFL is about first and foremost. The NFL is not trying to protect the integrity of the sport. They are trying to protect the integrity of criminality. So don't let their words fool you or the words of their cosigners in crime.
