Stealing the candy bar and being caught is robbery. They are different punishments

Depending on the state, the punishments aren’t very dissimilar. Btw, neither of those are robbery unless force was used. What you’re trying to say is simple theft.

Tells me to stick to facts and the NCAA policy, proceeds to talk about candy bars.

Yes, I’m the one assuming, reaching, ignoring facts, and grasping at straws here.

re: The case for Kristian Fulton and why he should be reinstated
It's really hard for the NCAA to argue actual tampering when the kid throws away the other urine on his own accord and then submits a real sample of his own to the administrator. Forget the fact that it came up clean for PEDs.

I'm sure that they have a nice, neat little definition that says that this is attempted tampering, but we're lacking any form of actual execution here. It's kind of like saying that you attempted to have sex with a minor, but there was never any forced submission or penetration of any kind. More like you pulled it out, either thought better of it and backed out, or a parent walked in, and you put your pants back on before any signs of initiation. In either scenario, there is no evidence of even an attempt to have sex. It's just that the second scenario has a ton of gray area.

The kid needs to file an injunction and take this to court if the NCAA is dumb enough to not see the gray area here.

If they had the vial or whatever he had to store the 3rd party sample, then all they would have to show is that container and any residue of foreign urine on it. This isn't as complex as you're making it out to be and would be a fairly easy burden to carry if Fulton brings it to court. There is a rule that specifically bars attempting to falsify a urine test. James Banks from Tennessee was busted 15 or so years ago for possessing a fake penis to try to pass a test. He never actually used it but he was suspended by the NCAA all the same because just having something like that warrants a suspension.

re: The case for Kristian Fulton and why he should be reinstated
Yes I read it again and I was wrong. Not ashamed to be wrong about certain facts.
The lawsuit is about something else besides the policy. I skimmed and missed it.
You were right, I was wrong.

Your arrogance is pathetic, though.

Doesn’t change my opinion or most of what I said was an actual argument the Fulton’s have I agree with.

It’s ashame you couldn’t understand the point in which the candy bar was presented.

Attempt murder does not carry life. Only 2nd degree murder (actually dead) and 1st degree (actually dead).

Trust me on this :)

He’s shown contrition by abstaining from drugs since the failed test?

A 2-year suspension is damn near a life sentence in college football.

If he poured the urine into his own cup and tried to submit it as his own, then I would say yes, more than a 1-year suspension is appropriate. I'm thinking 1 year and another 4 games the next season max though.

Agreed the punishment is too harsh. But Fulton and every other LSU athlete attend meetings and sign paperwork every year indicating they have learned about the LSU and NCAA drug testing rules.

re: The case for Kristian Fulton and why he should be reinstated
La RS 14:27. D. Whoever attempts to commit any crime shall be punished as follows:
(1)(a) If the offense so attempted is punishable by death or life imprisonment, he shall be imprisoned at hard labor for not less than ten nor more than fifty years.
A. Any person who, having a specific intent to commit a crime, does or omits an act for the purpose of and tending directly toward the accomplishing of his object is guilty of an attempt to commit the offense intended; and it shall be immaterial whether, under the circumstances, he would have actually accomplished his purpose.
C. An attempt is a separate but lesser grade of the intended crime; and any person may be convicted of an attempt to commit a crime, although it appears on the trial that the crime intended or attempted was actually perpetrated by such person in pursuance of such attempt.
D. Whoever attempts to commit any crime shall be punished as follows:
(3) In all other cases he shall be fined or imprisoned or both, in the same manner as for the offense attempted; such fine or imprisonment shall not exceed one-half of the largest fine, or one-half of the longest term of imprisonment prescribed for the offense so attempted, or both.

re: The case for Kristian Fulton and why he should be reinstated
I'm still questioning whether or not they can prove that he even made an attempt. He got as close as you can get, but where the NCAA is drawing the line is presumptuous.

If you take their side, you have to say that once Kristian held the cup from the outside source, he was already pouring the urine into his sample cup. I say that he changed his mind and altered his course. Now he may have folded under the pressure of knowing that he was being walked up on, but he still folded and then somehow gave his own valid sample which came up clean for PEDs.

If he was truly caught in the act, a reasonable protocol would have been for the administrator to complete the testing form at that time as "tampered," and an actual sample should never been submitted to UCLA for testing.

This shite ain't over with unless the Fultons have an awful attorney.

He was seen pouring the “sample” from a bottle into the beaker designated for his piss, and poured it out when approached. If that isn’t enough, no one in the Fulton family or on the LSU side is denying that’s what happened.

You’re better off making an argument that the policy sucks and they should just do us a favor and change the punishment mid flight, instead of questioning whether or not he broke the rule.

ETA: Did you even read the article?

The article, which is heavily slanted to LSU’s cause, even states that’s exactly what he was doing.

Well damn. Pretty much proves the attempt. Why even submit the real urine to UCLA for testing then?

I say a penalty reduction to 1-year and 4 games in 2018 is fair. 2 full years is total BS for a 4-year college term, especially given that we know that the real sample did not test positive.

Does anybody know what the time frame on when the decision will be made is? Can we expect to know before the season starts?
