With a high-profile incident like this there is an obvious lashing out by the fans about the situation. Let’s take a look.
Wow. Apparently Daryl Washington threw a whole season of his career away over pot. What a selfish asshole and a moron.

Seems be the most common view.
So wrapped up in the World Cup that I’ve only just seen the Daryl Washington news. Fuck. Give us back that $10m you fraud.

It’s a valid point about the signing bonus. It will be interesting to see what happens for the Cardinals to try and recoup some or all of the $5 million paid this past March. The other $5 million was scheduled to be paid next March.

It’s not quite that simple as Washington is a repeat offender under the policy and reportedly missed drug tests which are just as bad as failing them in the league’s eyes.
Still pissed. Daryl Washington was one of the fastest and best inside linebackers in the league and he blew it all.

That sums it up.
