Patriots' Rodney Harrison to be suspended 4 games, reportedly for HGH use: FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Rodney Harrison, the frequently fined strong safety who solidified the New England Patriots' defense through back-to-back Super Bowl victories, will miss the first four games of the NFL season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

This is softer than the Patriots' defense in last season's AFC championship game. There are no words to describe how feeble of a penalty this is, and how feeble and corrupt the NFL is when it comes to dealing with cheating. If Harrison was a sprinter or competed in an Olympic sport, he would have been banned for two years. In the NFL, the same offense earns you a one-month ban, a comical non-response.
