    Will this recent arrest get him sent back to Canada? I know the other two will probably be fine. However he is a legal allien in the United States but that comes with conditions. I think we might see the last of This guy. Anyone know the rules behind this type of thing?

    Not sure the conditions he is under being a student athlete. I do know people who have been charged with something similar. One thing is anytime he goes throught customs it will be a headache.

    I don't know, some on this board seem to think it warrants castration or death penalty.

    I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but if the report of residue and a few seeds is all they found, that is a joke. Most any city in the US, except small town Iowa, there wouldn't even be any charges.

    Exactly!! I have probably had more contrband residue on me from some of the concerts I have gone to than they did in their apartment. Rediculous.

    Same, even maybe a little second hand to go along with a great concert.

    Look, we've all had our issues with Al, but I don't think we should send him back...yet.

    There's only room for one Al in my life, and that is Al Jolson.

    He does appear to have been a pretty bad *** dude.

    That isn't really the issue here.

    I don't disagree that the laws in the US are too strict about this sort of thing, but as a scholarship athlete, you have to be smarter and cleaner than everyone else.

    May not be the exact issue here, but the reality is they had residue and some seeds no need to hang them at sunrise. They appear to be fully cooperating so I think they will get a slap on the wrist from the law and then CPR will have them training to be the best conditioned guys on the team.

    They are probably getting hosed. However my main question is kind of an important one. I don't beleive in sending him back to Canada. I don't think anyone should have to live in Canada. That place is horrible. It's worse than Lincoln, NE. THe probably is that it's not really an ISU issue. It's an ICE issue.

    Reporter: But this isn't the first troublesome thing to come out of Canada... let's not forget Bryan Adams.

    Prime Minister: Now, now now... the Canadian government has apologized for Bryan Adams on several occassions....
