2015 DCC Fantasy Football League Champion
If he misses a test for any reason, it's a serious misstep.
If you're the league, you have to assume any excuse is 95% bullshit. Don't trust, and verify.
Now if he's in a league-assigned rehab and misses a league-administered test, then I could see justification for appeal.
But must of the time there is no excuse for missing a test.
So he was in "rehab". Why not coordinate his tests with the league then?
I seriously doubt the league implements or coordinates with any official rehab program. That's expensive and hard to manage. If you opt for rehab, it's on your time and dime (or whatever your benefits cover).
Doesn't change needing to piss in a cup when the league says so. How hard would that be to privately arrange with a rehab program, especially one claiming to cater to professional athletes?
I don't buy his excuse and am pretty sure he fucked up by not covering his bases.
