Josh Gordon Failed Drug Test, Faces Year-Long Suspension: Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon faces a potential year-long suspension after a positive drug test, sources told NFL.Com. Gordon, who had a breakout year in 2013 with nine touchdowns and a league-leading 1,646 receiving yards, was suspended for the first two games that season for a substance abuse policy violation.

It's reported that Cleveland's Josh Gordon is facing a 16 game suspension for failing league substance testing again, for marijuana.

I hope Cleveland fans enjoyed their 18 hours of hope.

...and to pile on, Nate Burleson reportedly broke his arm in minicamp (no pizzas were involved.) I take back everything I've said over the years...the Browns *are* more tortured than the Lions...

The phrase I've seen for the Browns this week is "The Factory of Sorrow".

Uhm, that's Factory of Sadness.

Hah! That's even better!
I'm guessing someone else saw that, and then made a mistake when using it, which is when I then heard it.

At least Detroit fans can go over the bridge and renounce their citizenship in Windsor.

Cleveland fans need to go for a brief swim.

Yeah, 18 hours isn't nearly enough time for the Lions to tantalize the fans with hope before crushing us.

I pictured a few Browns fans going down to Edgewater and starting out on the walk to Rondeau Park.

And, it's beautiful how they admit/brag that the Gordon situation didn't affect their draft plans ... problem is, the team needed a #2 receiver behind him anyway, and then tack this on ... they still passed on several quality receivers. Ah, it's so fun being a Browns fan.
