Interesting that there was enough backlash against the Saints penalties that now the two biggest contenders for the last wild card ahead of the Saints (Vikes have too tough a schedule) both had BOTH of their corners popped for the same drug at the same time. Then again, Eric Wright still hasn't has his appeal decided.

That's, uh, not really interesting. It is more like tin foil hat conspiracy garbage.

Anyway, is this for something dumb like Adderall? Or we're they actually using something that enhanced performance like HGH?

According to reports, yes, it's Adderall for both of them.

There have been so many drugs flushed down toilets in south Florida, just being exposed to the stadium sprinklers in Miami would get you to test positive for Adderall.

Eh, Eric Wright was facing suspension for the same thing in October and still hasn't missed a week. But f*ck it, if they do get suspended it's a nice chance to possibly develop depth for the future, it might encourage Carroll to stop telling the offense to let off the accelerator, and we might end up better off for it. Doubt we're winning a SB anyway since we'd have to go on the road to do it.

Lost Thought 00: Oh noes! Now who else will they find to blow coverage in the fourth quarter!


I don't think either of them had any blown coverages that I remember. The linebackers got annihilated by anyone underneath and safeties had a couple of plays where they had issues.

Is there any performance use in the NFL for Adderall besides the increased mental sharpness? For example, can it be used to hide other PEDs?

Because I'm having a hard time believing the increase in mental acuity will be significant on the field.

Pretty sure you can use adderal if prescribed. At least that's what I seem to remember from Joe Haden's suspension earlier this year.

It is ridiculously easy to get a prescription for that; anybody who uses that stuff & gets tested ought to have one.

It helps you stay up later & not be too drunk @ the club so you can bang more football sluts. Goodell doesn't stand for that shiat. Hold your liquor or suffer the limp dick. It's part of the NFL's rookie symposium. It's in the "Whoring" section, as I recall.

Giants RB Andre Brown was let off the hook despite not having done the paperwork in advance.

Count me among those who can't possibly imagine that Adderall actually confers an appreciable advantage on the field. Maybe it does something for the crushing boredom of film study.

Eh, if they're not around then maybe Chicago Jay gets too big for his britches and starts thinking he can fit anything in against the backups and we get some nice turnovers. Plus we'll get to see if Jeremy Lane can play outside of special teams - remember, he was one of the guys we got for losing to the Cardinals in Week 17 last year (loss moved us up in draft order, traded back down and got two picks; therefore that loss was worth two players).

I have a hard time seeing how Adderall is as or more egregious as any other drug. Yes, the NFL wants to prevent abuse and so on, but when I was on Adderall, it actually wore me out faster to the point where climbing up a few flights of steps winded me. I can see how guys would take it to add to their focus in pregame buildup, but on the field, I have a hard time believing it does anything for them.

It takes the edge off both sides, if you need it. I can't speak to how their expience with AD(H)D is, but with mine sometimes I couldn't focus to get on task, and sometimes I couldn't refocus to move on to a new task. Many people find Adderall or the like to be a stimulant, but for me it was more calming. The biggest change was probably when I would take Adderall, and as soon as it took effect my handwriting changed from illegible to neat.

I would probably still need to take it daily if it weren't for the near ubiquitious ability to spell and grammar check. I wouldn't be surprised if this whole thing comes to nothing.

whizbangthedirtfarmer: /that and the infuriating playcalling in Detroit and Miami


I do not even want to hear it. If the defense or offensive line played anything near where their capable, it wouldn't have mattered.

But it's a mild one. It's not like the pills they were taking in baseball in the 70s, where you could see players twitching and sweating and sprinting all over the place. I took Ritalin for a while about 10 years ago, didn't feel different in any way, and ceased taking them pretty soon thereafter. Obviously people use Adderall for a reason, it's just that I can't see risking a suspension for a drug whose effects are so subtle. You can get at least as much out of caffeine.

For a corner, wouldn't ADHD itself be the performance enhancer? Find the guy you're assigned to guard, wait for the snap, *DEFENDDEFENDDEFENDDEFEND*, hear the whistle, look around the stadium for a bit.

Hell, it can even change mid-play. *DEFENDDEFEND* *pick* "I'm now a downfield blocker. I must block for my teammate." Hear the whistle, "hey, is that John Candy?"

The roughing call yesterday was quite obviously correct. Thomas hit Tannehill in the helmet. Intent doesn't enter into it. If you hit the QB in the helmet, it's roughly. End of story.

I also love that the roughing call was apparently bogus, but the non-call on Golden Tate tackling Sean Smith before making the catch to give Seattle the lead was totes alright.

The play that Tate jumped over him on? Mike Pereira said it was fine (with the benefit of replay) and so did the ref standing next to it. No interference on either player.

Hasn't it been correlated that the dumber you are the better DB you are? Maybe they bought what they thought was coke from some classy looking dealer outside a Starbucks, but turned out to be the ground up Adderall (using a burr grinder, no less) from a Washington student's midterm all nighter?

The problem in that game wasn't that Seahawks corners were good - huge drive killing drops and penalties - and then the Cowboys defense just got ran the hell over in the 2nd half. The Cowboys had less than a minute of possession in the 4th quarter because the defense was getting trucked.

This.
Adderall is speed. When people that don't have ADHD take it, it gives them tremendous amounts of energy. One place that I worked, all of the managers used it and were encouraging all of the people in my department to get a prescription for it so that we could work 15 hour days like it was nothing. And it is so easy to get a prescription for it, all you have to do is go to a doctor and say you are having problems concentrating and focusing, and you will get a prescription. Doctors hand them you like candy.

These guys could have gotten a legit prescription from a doctor, and maybe they could have really had ADHD, their problem seems that they didn't submit paper work to the NFL saying they were under doctors care for ADHD and were prescribed Adderall. Some people that really have ADHD are ashamed of it and don't want people to know that they are being treated for it.

Doctors hand them you like candy.

These guys could have gotten a legit prescription from a doctor, and maybe they could have really had ADHD, their problem seems that they didn't submit paper work to the NFL saying they were under doctors care for ADHD and were prescribed Adderall. Some people that really have ADHD are ashamed of it and don't want people to know that they are being treated for it.


FWIW, Sherman does seem like the type for ADHD.

Adderall will keep you alert, not make you into monster. Retarded subby needs to learn his drugs.

Tickle Mittens: Super Chronic: IAmRight: Gunny Highway: Can you get a doctor's note and be cleared?

Not after the fact. One of those things where it has to be on file with the league well in advance.

/I like that multiple DUIs gets you 1-2 games while Adderall is 4 games
//which means that yes, it's considered a performance enhancing drug, rather than being based on the personal conduct scale

Giants RB Andre Brown was let off the hook despite not having done the paperwork in advance.

Count me among those who can't possibly imagine that Adderall actually confers an appreciable advantage on the field. Maybe it does something for the crushing boredom of film study.

It takes the edge off both sides, if you need it. I can't speak to how their expience with AD(H)D is, but with mine sometimes I couldn't focus to get on task, and sometimes I couldn't refocus to move on to a new task. Many people find Adderall or the like to be a stimulant, but for me it was more calming. The biggest change was probably when I would take Adderall, and as soon as it took effect my handwriting changed from illegible to neat.

I would probably still need to take it daily if it weren't for the near ubiquitious ability to spell and grammar check. I wouldn't be surprised if this whole thing comes to nothing.

whizbangthedirtfarmer: /that and the infuriating playcalling in Detroit and Miami

I do not even want to hear it. If the defense or offensive line played anything near where their capable, it wouldn't have mattered.


In the last few games Seattle won, the fourth quarter playcalling was excellent, and the Sehawks chewed up massive amounts of time to kill the clock. In Miami and Detroit, they simply called three runs and then punted again. Ridiculous.

I don't like RIchard Sherman...self-congratulatory, unoriginal loudmouth. If he's guilty, awesome. Suspend his punk ass.

/he is good and the team I root for plays his next week.
 
2012-11-26 03:29:21 PM
I can't remember where I read it, but the reason Adderall seems to be the "drug of choice" is because that is what the players/agents want you to hear. Since the league isn't allowed to say what exactly somebody tested positive for there is no way to refute a player's claim that it was "harmless" Adderall or a tainted supplement and not an evil steroid or HGH.

/Jermaine Cunningham of the Pats was also just suspended for 4 games
//No wonder he was playing well for a stretch there
///And Brandon Boldin is back from his suspension next week

FYI, Adderall is no more banned in the NFL than it is in the rest of the country. If you have a doctor's prescription, you can possess and use it.

And after doing a slight bit of reading, the supposed reason the NFL lists it as a PED is that under small doses, would help with breaking down film and what not. I didn't find anyone claiming it might increase performance on the field WITHOUT using during the week to help break things down off the field.

As someone who didn't care about Braun but am happy to sh*t on Armstrong...Armstrong deserves every bit of the sh*t he's getting not for cheating - don't care about that - but for spending his entire career acting holier-than-thou about everyone else's cheating, bribing people, threatening people who would tell, and generally being a piece of sh*t that used an overwrought story about cancer to do whatever he wanted while getting a free pass.

Sherman's trolled some (U Mad) and had some fun (Twitter name change to Optimus Prime), but unless I see him out there doing stuff to the extent of Armstrong, that's ridiculous.

See, now that's what I speculated upthread!

I tried to look it up too, but only saw some headlines that might or might not have contained the answer. I just didn't have the energy to follow through. If only there were some kind of medication to help me concentrate enough to read multiple articles from start to finish.

IAmRight: R.A.Danny: Marcus Trufant and Walter Thurmond

Eh, Eric Wright was facing suspension for the same thing in October and still hasn't missed a week. But f*ck it, if they do get suspended it's a nice chance to possibly develop depth for the future, it might encourage Carroll to stop telling the offense to let off the accelerator, and we might end up better off for it. Doubt we're winning a SB anyway since we'd have to go on the road to do it.


Not on topic but am I the only person thinking Russell Wilson is doing a fantastic job?

His home stats are ridiculously good, but if his receivers could catch the ball his road split would be much better. Last I saw they had or were close to most drops this season.

I couldn't be happier with the guy.

Yes, it is absolutely not Wilson's fault that Seattle lost at Miami and Detroit. You could make the case in the losses to St. Louis and Arizona, but I think in those losses, Wilson still was dealing with a limited playbook. As the season's progressed, and the coaches have given him more options, he is becoming extremely efficient.

I am completely pleased with his performance so far. His long ball is severely underrated.

Couldn't agree more. That loss to the 49ers I can think of four huge drops alone that would have either converted a 3rd down or in one case scored a TD. Those deep balls are gorgeous.

Nope...nopenopenopenopenopenopenopenopenope..., nope. Not only can they enhance performance, it is illegal to possess them without a prescription, so if the NFL wants to give a sense of "protecting the shield" they need to suspend guys who are using illegal drugs, performance enhancing or not. Ricky Williams was gonna add more, but he wandered off to find some Funyuns.

/that and the infuriating playcalling in Detroit and Miami

Well they did get a free win against GB

They just got paid back in Miami with that roughing the passer flag on Thomas that negated an endzone INT.


As long as it's being brought up...if the real refs were in that game, we would've won...there was a ton of calls that wouldn't have been called on Rodger's 1 yd td run drive in order to negate that down to the 3 and out it would've been in the first place.

The playcalling is what is going to kill our team, not 2 cornerbacks. Bevell is playing not to lose, not playcalling to win.

And yes, Adderall is essentially speed. It's an amphetamine, and despite what these 2 kids are saying; only 1 player *ever* has successfully appealed against a PED claim (and Ryan Braun got off on a technicality).

Might as well get the 4 games over with and prep for next year....49ers are gonna clean up shop anyway.

I made it half-way through the thread and didn't notice anybody saying how it's always Adderall. As if that's the most benign thing you can be busted with in the eyes of the public. The league doesn't announce what they tested positive for. It's spin, it's the players and their agents putting it out there that it was "just" Adderall.

What is perplexing is that, over the years, the NFL has been quite content with "leaks" telling the public what the players were accused of. Did something change with the new agreement?

I was wondering to myself if it had anything to do with HIPAA law, but maybe it's in the CBA.
