Could you imagine retiring from your current job when you are in the prime of your career? Think about this. Imagine just waking up and saying I quit. I’m done with my job, for safety reasons. Now a month later that company comes to you and asks you for a drug test.
Would you be worried they are trying to blackmale you? Of course they are going to think you are crazy because you just quit a job at the prime of your career.
Borland had been amazed at the reaction to his decision, the implications of which many saw as a direct threat to the NFL. And now here was an email demanding that he pee in a cup before a league proctor within 24 hours or fail the test.
“I figured if I said no, people would think I was on drugs,” he said recently. That, he believed, “would ruin my life.”
As he thought about how to respond, Borland began to wonder how random this drug test really was.
“I don’t want to be a conspiracy theorist,” he says. “I just wanted to be sure.” Borland agreed to submit a urine sample to the NFL’s representative, who drove in from Green Bay and administered the test in the Wisconsin trainer’s room. Then he hired a private firm for $150 to test him independently. Both tests came back negative, according to Borland.
“I don’t really trust the NFL,” he says.
