West Ham Player Drugs Ban

Recommended Posts

Shaun Newton has been given a 7month ban for testing positive for cocaine. However, in all their wisdom the FA let him start it at the start of the 3months summer break so in reality its a 4 month ban ;)

 

Wolves striker Chris Cornes also tested positive and was given a 6 month ban!? While rio missed a test and was given an 8 month ban!?!?

 

The FA needs to sort its act out and bring some sort of consistent punishment into drugs testing. How one man can get a 6 month ban and 10 days later another can get a 7 month ban for exactly the same offence is ridiculous IMO!

Rio missed a test, not found guilty.

 

Maybe Chros Cornes get less for being younger or playing down a division? ;)

It does seem a bit odd that Ferdinand got a longer ban despite not actually testing positive for anything. With it being the first incident of its kind perhaps the FA wanted to send out a message.

 

Also if bans for missing tests were shorter than those for testing positive players who knew they could test postive would skip the test and avoid any negative publicity.
