(USA Today)   Remember Cowboy's 2nd string CB Orlando Scandrick who came out of nowhere last year to have a monster season and secure his role as a starter? His urine test says there was a reason for that, so he'll be missing 4 games this season   (usatoday.com ) divider line

Doctor Funkenstein: If he punches a chick in the face he can cut that in half.


I don't think you will EVER hear them publicly admit it. But the reason the League is so soft on things like Domestic violence, is because they KNOW and have known for a long time, what the cognitive and behavioral effects of cumulative concussions really are:  The anger, the out of character violence and the poor impulse control are all classic symptoms   (it really is scary to see  first hand too.  Had a close friend who was hit by a car while out running, mess her up pretty bad, broken wrist collapsed lung broken ribs etc.   But the weird thing was, those injuries were mending nicely, but out of the blue she was started texting me me about how depressed she was and he nearly uncontrollable urge to throw herself in front of her commuter train.   By incredible coincidence I had just watched the NFL concussion documentary "Head games" and I realized she was exhibiting classic concussion symptoms.    Convinced her to get to a hospital ASAP thank god and when they ran a high res MRI?  Sure enough : she had an un-diagnosed bleed in her brain from the accident.   They were able to treat her and release her about a week later and happily she is on the mend.

I also think the Army may need to look into this soon as they struggle with a seemingly inexplicable rash of soldier suicides.   A Traumatic Brain Injury-even a small one can radically change someone for the worse and really fark up their impulse control, mood stabilization, etc

According to Scandrick, it came from taking molly on vacation in Mexico. The molly included amphetamines, so it's a PED instead of a drug of abuse. If they classified it as a drug of abuse instead of a PED, he'd face no suspension for a 1st offense.

It got him paid, so it was still a net positive for him, and there's no reason this would discourage any other borderline player from taking the same PEDs

Didn't the Cowboys finish dead last in defense? I'm not sure a single defensive player had a monster season.

Yeah and I don't believe him for a second because that is a bit too convenient: Copping to illegal drugs -but outside of US jurisdiction, and the banned substance just HAPPENS to be the drug that is all the rage among elite NFL CBs right now (adderall is nothing more than legalized meth)

If he and two of his friends murdered a guy at a bar and they all covered up who the actual stabber was, then he'd not only get zero penalty, he'd become the public face of the NFL on all advertisements.

Well, one definition of monster is "dude who gets taken out like a little biatch by the moron who has been consistently flailing around like a spastic turtle for the last 200 pages (8.5295477826x10^38 pages for GRR Martin / Robert Jordan)", so it fits.

They also don't really take Adderall as much as use it as an excuse.

The NFL and the NFLPA do not announce what a failed drug test is for. So if a guy gets popped for gear, he just says "Oh, I tested positive for Adderall. I have ADD but my exemption expired and I didn't get a chance to get it renewed". The public thinks: "Oh, my kid has ADD. No biggy!"

Orlando Sandrick should've used the Richard Sherman defense

In all fairness if Lewis and his buddies had been you and your friends, a case wouldn;t have been brought in the first place.   In fact the Jury actually acquitted both of the guys who did the actual stabbing after finding self defense.  Which given that the other people followed Lewis' party out to the car, started the fight by breaking a bottle of Champagne over the head of one of Lewis' friends, and the prosecutions's star witness admitted to pulling out a 9mm during the fight and firing it wildly, was probably the correct call.


So i have a hard time getting upset at whatever Lewis is supposed to have done.
 
2014-08-12 04:11:31 PM  
He didn't say he was using Adderall. He said he was using random drugs that he doesn't even know what's in 'em because he's an idiot.

Agreed. If someone tries to start a fight in a bar by breaking a bottle over someone's head, the world isn't missing out on much with their departure.

2014-08-12 04:35:58 PM  
You know, I wouldn't think the substance ravers take to mindless dance for hours on end would be a performance enhancer, especially for a CB.  He'd want to just touch the receiver constantly for stimulation and it would draw too many penalties.  Almost like calling pot "performance enhancing"- if the performance is competitive navel gazing or Cheeto eating.

I'd be shocked if they won more than 5 games. I also wouldn't be surprised if they only won 2.
 
2014-08-12 05:53:45 PM  
If it actually was Molly, I'd be pissed as hell for getting 4 games for that piddly crap. Why on earth should it matter if they want to smoke pot, do lines off of a big ole booty, or roll the night away. It has almost nothing to do with the NFL.

Let teams be in charge of handing out suspensions/fines for recreational drug use that isn't PED related. If Peyton Manning wants to smoke a bowl, he should be allowed to. If it's negatively affecting his play, then the Broncos would take action and deal with it. What's that you say? Adrian Peterson has had a shiatty time recently and wants to spend a week on a coke binge in Vegas? Fine. I'd say he's earned that. And if it turns into a problem, you can bet your ass the Vikings would handle their investment appropriately.

If you think Roger Goodell/Jerry Jones/etc etc haven't done coke, then you're kidding yourself.

MDMA is an amphetamine but it is NOT a performance enhancing drug.  The "high" lasts about 4 hours and the last thing you want to do is play football or exercise, or at least you won't exercise anywhere other than a dance floor.  You can't really get addicted to it because each subsequent dose loses effectiveness.  If you tried to take it 3 days in a row the third day it becomes totally unfun and not worth it.

Also, anyone that has ever tasted any amphetamine knows for a fact that there is absolutely ZERO chance anyone would accidentally drink it.  It is the most godawful bitter taste you can imagine.  You would reflexively spit out any drink spiked with MDMA unless you were holding back the gag and intentionally trying to hold it under your tongue to get it into your blood faster..

Am I the only one who thinks reporting on MDMA as "Molly" is like saying a player who smoked pot "used the sticky-icky-icky"?

I mean, everyone already KNOWS MDMA. It's been mainstream for 20 years! At least call it ecstasy. I'm surprised Ed Werder didn't announce "Scandrick been thizzin'! News at 11."
