I remember when Steeler fans wanted this guy and I argued against it because it is a complete idiot.

Sad, because early in his career he looked like he could be a great player.

Now....he keeps getting in trouble (as expected) and he is an extremely average player.

Not sure why the Bucs keep putting up with this.

Addy should not be a banned substance.

If you run it by the league and get clearance for it, I don't think it is.

Could be worse for Talib, but he is still an idiot for not complying with the NFL's banned substance. If it was as simple as getting permission from the league, this even makes Talib look even more foolish. Talib is a talented player so this loss obviously hurts TB.

If you don't have add - its speed. Most illegal drugs are banned by the NFL, adderall should be no different unless you have pre-approval by the league for its usage. The fact that he won't appeal tells you all you need to know imo, guys that need it for medical use usually appeal.

Yes it should. It's a masking agent for steroids. If you are going to enforce an anti-steroids policy, you have to enforce an anti-Adderall (and Ritalin) policy.

Adderall is a stimulant, specifically an amphetamine. That is why it is banned as a performance enhancing drug.

How do people keep using this when so many have been suspended? Laughing

The guy has admitted that he took it without knowing what it was at some party (or so I've read). So it was not even remotely related to the medication status of Adderall.

Talib, to his credit, makes no excuse: "I am truly sorry to my teammates, coaches and Buccaneers fans, and I'm disappointed in myself. Around the beginning of training camp, I made a mistake by taking an Adderall pill without a prescription."

Attention NFL players: If you're partying, and someone hands you a blue pill for a pick-me-up, it could lead to a four-game suspension.


Quote:
If anyone wants to know why a drug like Adderall is banned by the NFL, can be traced back to ephedra & the death of Korey Stringer in 2001.

The league doesn't release the substance the players are suspended for using. It's easy enough for for the player to come out and say it was adderall as a way to save face. I would bet that at least a few of these guys have tested positive for other things.

AH, I see. That is better.

In that case...

isnt that really bad for your heart? i mean if you dont have ADHD its speeds up your heart, then you speed it up more by doing a lot of physical stuff. might be wrong but i think it might be really bad to do it.
