He gets tested and has low amounts of codeine in his system and a story explaining how it happened and the NFL goes easy on him with a 2-game suspension rather than 4. Anyone w/ a better explanation than that one? https://twitter.com/jimkanicki jimkanickithat would work better if he offered that up in his statement instead of the prescription story. Vindictive_PatGood point, but my story is more fun than, “I went to a non-team doctor because my throat was killing me in the middle of the night and I didn’t want to wake those dudes up, and that dumb doctor gave me a prescription for codeine cough syrup!” BenRMWait, you mean that same thing hasn’t happened to you? I find myself calling shady non-team doctors on the regular. Who knows what they give me? Harv 21I hear your criticisms about where they’re going with Don Draper but I see it less as Weiner experimenting with the limits of viewer distaste for a lead character than trying to stay true to the main themes over maybe more seasons than the creator anticipated. They just relentlessly peel off layers of his defenses in the context of the chaotic times. Hard to envision a final season redemption. There was too much of a generation gap for those raised in the Depression to suddenly try bell bottoms and beards. To me, having a WWII vet like Roger enjoy tripping on acid is the most borderline-false tone they strike.I think Don’s going to walk away alone, in some ambiguous ending. It’s not a show that have more than one main character die.
