Considering it has nothing to do with football, seems like a fairly harsh penalty to me.

I've always thought that any recreational drugs offence should really be about the club hammering a player financially for breach of contract etc rather than a ban.

Certainly I'm struggling to think of a recreational drug that would enhance performance.....

Though being in possession of cocaine is a crime and I wonder who he got it off?

The biggest annoyance about the use of cocaine is many users are financially well off and use it 'recreationally' but it's those who have fallen into trap of dealing who put themselves at risk just so they can have a hit. My sympathy for Murphy is limited to non-existent.

If he got arrested, fined or sacked I’d understand - banning him from football matches just seems like an irrelevant punishment.

Following the positive reaction to recent news about Jason Dozzell, it'd be a bit hypocritical to hammer Murphy too much. Although obviously the fact he is still an active player and it would indicate he's not taking his fitness seriously means it should be an internal issue.

We know with Keogh and the Derby lads, players are too valuable to suffer the same fate as you or I if caught, but I do think some sort of medical/counselling intervention at their expense might be a good course of action for pros.

In case he's an addict. Think of the types who circled players like Chopra and stripped him bare by exploiting him etc.

Seems bizarre for a player of his age and experience, not to mention ANY professional footballer doing that given the high profile cases of people like Bosnich. You'd understand it more of a young idiot with too much cash, an older pro like Murphy just seems crazy.

His career's winding down, I imagine he's pretty comfortable financially these days, hard to begrudge the man a cheeky toot on a night out.

He's still a professional footballer. Presumably he thought he wouldn't get caught, which is crazy for someone of his age and experience, and puts a blot against his otherwise good name. Not a great example to younger players who should be looking up to him as well. Very silly and odd IMO.

The goalie for a Sunday league team I played for used to smoke a spliff just before kickoff and he was quality. Not sure he’d have been as good without it.

When my old man played for his Sunday pub team he used to keep a packet of Benson and hedges in his sock. If the play was at the other end of the pitch he'd have a few puffs.

I can see the argument for cannabis despite the potential pitfalls but legalising cocaine is more than one step too far.
