#Vikings' Spencer Nealy suspended four games for violating PED policy.


Never heard of him. What were his chances of making the roster before this?

Slim to none before. He had spent time on the PS last year.

Because Spencer Nealy was going to be a big part of our season, right?

Nealy says in a statement he took a supplement that contained a banned stimulant. "I take responsibility." #Vikings


Looked up some articles from last year, looks like he was a PS guy who got cut and re-signed a couple times. I've always thought of situations like this as the most understandable under which to take PEDs, as opposed to the players who are already very good but want to make elite status. If it's a guy scratching and clawing to make a 53-man roster, I get it more than the other.

I didn't expect him to make the roster anyways. His loss is another man's gain.

No, it's a 47 year old North Korean expat who joined FF in July in order to make 20 posts on his first day in idiomatic English about how Cordarrelle Patterson will disappoint, Aaron Rodgers will tear up the Vikings secondary again, the new coaches are incompetent, Teddy Bridgewater isn't ready, and Christian Ponder is brilliant. It's only a coincidence that the very first thing he did on the board was vote for Tavon Austin in the comparisons poll vs Patterson.

Obviously. Rolling Eyes

No, it just seems like every time I turn the corner somthing bad happens. this is surprising though, our team is normally very disciplined. 2nd least penalized team last year, but that had to do with Frazier porbably

Why? He knows exactly what he is doing and everyone is falling for it.

Nealy: "Recently I learned from the NFL that I tested positive for a stimulant that is banned under the NFL policy. I worked with my agent and the union to investigate the test results, and I learned that a supplement I took contained a banned stimulant. I understand that the NFL policy is very strict, and I take responsibility. Iím very sorry for the impact of this situation on my teammates, the Vikings organization and Vikings fans. I will work extremely hard during training camp, and during the suspension, I will stay in top shape and will be ready to contribute upon my return."

That's what I like to hear, discipline and responsibleness
