B.J. Raji claimed to have failed a drug test, but the speculation was that this was due to marijuana use.

Open and shut, right? Professionals making millions of dollars to accurately read drug tests couldn't possibly mix up drug tests results, right?

Apparently, I'm wrong.

Now, I don't claim to be a drug test expert by a long-shot, but at the same time, it's a pretty big screw up.

And yet, not as big of a screw up as the one that NFLDraftBible has on their hands at the moment.

They've recently retracted the story that claimed Raji had indeed failed a drug test. They've yet to offer an apology, and in my eyes, they really, really need to.

NFLDraftBible is shaking in their boots at the moment, after "reliable sources" allowed them to break the story, and now they could possibly face charges for defamation, since there are still going to be some people out there that will attest to the fact that Raji has a drug problem.

This isn't even an isolated incident. NFLDraftBible also said that University of Southern California linebackers Clay Matthews and Brian Cushing had tested positive for steroids, which also proved to be false.

Just another case of "open mouth, insert foot."

On that note, I'd like to extend warm tidings of good luck to all three of the young men hoping to be high first round selections.

Where can I comment?
