Why? Because journalism is dead. Nobody checks anything. Even the NFL itself is too damned lazy to ask itself what the deal is before just blindly running with whatever some schmuck reporter writes.


Hopefully this is just the same report from mother****** jones with a name stuck to it and it's a bunch of bs.

I can't take being a Browns can anymore man. So excited for the new season then Taylor gets hurt, Gocog is done, Richardson is getting another scope and Haden might be suspended.

One of his "girlfriends"(went to highschool with her) takes them by the damn handful, she is a bad influnce on him, i can see.

i knew he drinks A LOT already, and drinking and ADD go hand in hand. (helps u drink more with out crashing)
atleast thats how it used to be used outside of finals week.

4 weeks with no Joe would be real bad.

and this stuff from our Vets is not good for Gordon to be around

Really hope he's not suspended. I was already hoping for Buster Skrine to step his play up, but now he really needs to if the Browns are going to be without Haden for the first four games.

First of all, you can't test positive for Adderall. The test is for amphetamines. There is no way of knowing exactly which stimulant. Just getting that out of the way.

2nd, NO IDEA why this is a banned substance in the "offseason". I can definitely see why it would be banned during the year because of the effects it could have for players on game days.

I guess the league really wouldn't see it that way, and simply say if it is banned during ANY part of the year then it should be banned all year. I get that, and can see why they would think that. I just disagree with this thinking for amphetamines.

And for whoever said Adderall is "meth", um, no it isnt, it's a completely different drug compound.

Still, sucks.


Its a banned substance because its illegal to have without a prescription. Pretty easy to understand that one.

Don't understand why its banned for those with a prescription though, if what Reggie said was true.

I heard on the radio that it is fine to have with a prescription but you must have declared the prescription with the league before this happens.

I heard he has one, but never filed it with the league.

If true, only we get screwed by unfiled paperwork. Also, Rosenhaus is his agent? Yikes. BTW Drew, way to keep up on your client's paperwork. Evil or Very Mad

As was brought up in NFL News, just going to point out that the league doesn't say what drug the player fails on, its up to the player/agent to say which one. It could well be Adderall, and be a mistake but it could also be a drug which greatly harms his PR and this is the reason his agent is choosing Adderall.

Cynical theory, but is possible.

this is retarded, haden has an adderal perscription, how are you going to suspend someone for taking a substance he is perscribed? excuse my analogy if it offends anyone but its like telling someone with cancer you cant have kemo, its banned

Does he have attention def disorder and none of us knew? I would think that would have come out in the draft process. Or does he just have an adderall script? If you know anything about addiction, this is very scary.

When Tyler sash was suspended, I read the league requires the prescription to be from a team doctor and it has to be league approved in order for players to avoid suspension. Probably trying to prevent players paying a dr a couple hundred bucks for a false diagnosis. Hopefully there isn't a suspension, if there is the young guys will have there opportunity to impress

You can get a script for whatever you want if uou find the right doctor. If he doesnt have add, or adhd, hes using it recreationally or even worse, an addict. If you snort this stuff its better than most cocaine which has been diluted. Like i said hope this is all bs, and grossi gets canned. If it was false, we would have heard a denial by now though.
