in the past, and just forgot to fill out some paperwork, the 4 games seems silly to me.
And I'd say that for any player on any team.
it's medication to treat ADD.
and watching lots of film while he's on it
that seems unfair. If it's spelled out that way in the cba, so be it I guess, but a quarter of the season for not filling out forms seems silly.
he wouldn't have forgotten to fill out the paperwork (;
that's one hell of a drug
i remember taking it in college cramming for exams....steroids for the brain
ADD really impacts one's executive functioning...the ability to plan and organize and sustain attention, among other things. It would be a shame if he was penalized for something like this.
than treat ADD...it's a commonly abused drug
and it did help while I was taking it, but now that I'm off it, I have no problem going to the mall to buy sneakers. I got these new pair of addias, white with the green stripes. They just scream awesome. I hung out with some dude last week who had a pair and I had to get them for myself. He drives a Camaro, what were we talking about again?
tested positive for adderrall too, I know a kicker did a couple years back as well. Crazy.
Is supending the guy on Adderrall with ADD for forgetting something. That's like suspending the man with a broken leg for limping.
Is pretty close to methamphetamine.
to ban something like Adderrall given the abuse of the drug. I'm sure that the paperwork to allow for the use requires information from the prescribing doctor. If he can show the prescription, perhaps they will overturn the suspension.
....insurance subsidized drugs...nice.
That said, if he had a diagnosis of ADD and simply forgot the paperwork to continue it (WHILE he had a valid Rx. for it) that's more a clerical error than using it for abuse
Worked in a meth lab in Petersburg Va.
All we made in the specialty building was meth
and methadone .
abusing dumb shit (on the 1st thread announcing Brown's suspension) apologized on this thread?
It may well be the guy did nothing wrong at all aside from paperwork and will win his appeal. Too soon to say.
it makes sense why he kept saying "I got a ring, he got one too."
It's absurd to suspend him
accurate then the league really went too far here. If he's taking adderrall it's for a long term "non-curable" issue like AD/HD so it's not as if they would allow it for x long but not y.
based on the recent precedent with Texans punter Brett Hartmann - similar issue with Ritalin where he had a paperwork issue leading to a violation and a 4 game suspension that was reduced on appeal to 3 games. link

without all the evidence, we should not rush to innocent judgement until the dust settles. A lot of guilty folk claim innocence. At this point, we simply don't know what's what.
That said, it's bullshit for any player, any team to get reamed for paperwork error. IF true about the magnamity of accepting the error and reducing the punishment to 3 games instead of 4 for the player listed above, that's bullshit.
On the other hand, IF the suspension gives us a roster exemption (I don't know the rules) for 4 games, it might work in his favor. Sounds like he's a bubble player, so an exemption would give him life if the inevitable injuries start piling up.
actually read the link about the Texans player, he did not have prior approval to take Ritalin, and thus it was not a clerical error. After getting caught, he went out and got proper approval from doctors. The way I read it is that Brown is claiming he had prior approval, and just forgot to file for continuing approval.
Funny post. Gave me a good laugh.
