Default Is Ed Bouchette a complete fool ?

I cannot believe that Ed Bouchette changed his vote from Jairus Byrd to Brian Cushing for DROY. Apparently he feels cheaters should be rewarded more than clean players. He claims he did so because he didn't agree with a revote. Well, doofus, if you don't agree with the process, you abstain from it. The whole purpose of the AP revoting was to give voters the opportunity to reevaluate their vote based upon new information that was known but not revealed by the NFL when the first vote was taken. 18 voters got up on their soapbox and decided to embarrass the AP and the NFL by voting for a suspended player instead of a clean player. This had nothing to do with establishing a bad precedent; the NFL is ta\king a harder line on cheaters NOW than it did when Merriman and Peppers were rewarded. That is called PROGRESS. Maybe its time for old foggies like Bouchette to lose their AP vote if they are too stubborn to realize which way the wind is blowing in the modern NFL.

I dont see how this guy can still get enough votes to win this award. He cheated. Whether it was techinally riods or not he did take something that was illegal to take and he won an award while on the stuff. He shouldnt have been on the ballot the 2nd time.

Strip him of the award and give it to someone who was on the same playing field as everyone else. This really angers me

at the end of the day, its just an award....

now that he got caught, im pretty sure it means he is susceptible to random drug testing.

Lets see you play football without the help of steroids. I'm sure you guys saw the 2 pics of him before and after, while he was juicing at USC. Without the roids, he has the body type of a DB...LOL. That wont fly in the NFL....

It was a vote against the re-vote. The whole is stupid. Just strip him of the title and give it to the second place winner. Tgat's what the votes FOR Cushing was about.

I don't have a problem with him winning the award under the re-vote.

I do like the fact that the AP is taking the NFL's stance on the stripping or banning of receiving an award if a PE drug test is failed.

I've always had an issue with him. However, I do trust him when he reports on the Steelers. My issue was, as RushHard said, "his Q&A transcripts;" he's a bit of a jerk to some fans. I've learned to forgive some of that though as some Steelers fans a regrettably retarded.

The AP just proved what a joke their awards really are.
