I don't get why it's worthy of suspensions. It doesn't make you fast, makes u like working and stay focused. Nothing wrong with that

If they were prescribed for it, that's ludicrous

I doubt that they were prescribed it. If they were, this wouldn't be an issue.

Incorrect.

Prescription is irrelevant. Still has to be cleared with the NFL since its on the banned list. This all came up already with Joe Haden. Prescription has to come with NFL clearance still.

Guys are idiots regardless. It's a moot point if people don't think it's a PED - a simple call to the NFL to clear it, if they need it, and they are fine.

It's just stupidity to get busted for something if it is banned - no matter what it is used for.

Yes, but if you get a prescription, can't you get it cleared by the NFL for medical use? I can't imagine the NFL can deny a drug for medical conditions.

Yes - but has to be done before you are busted - a prescription alone doesn't clear you. You have to have told the NFL about your prescription before the season and they have to allow the prescription usage.

So the prescription alone doesn't help you - it's telling the NFL about the prescription ahead of time.

That is what I meant...

When I think of prescription, I think of getting a doctor's note before you can even buy the drug.

You can get a prescription for Weed in some states.

Sherman was that guy, yes.

He was also Optimus Prime to Calvin Johnson's Megatron.

I know the situation is different for pro athletes, but this seems like a violation against HIPAA. In the unlikely event, these suspensions should be cleared if there is proof they were medically prescribed to take this drug. However if they were taking to get an edge without any prescription, then suspension should be upheld.

I really don't think they should have to acquire permission to take medications like this, and only provide proof if it shows up in a piss test.

I don't disagree - I just know the rules from the Joe Haden incident as I'm a Browns fan so followed that closely and he was popped for adderall as well. Prescription on its face isn't enough to clear you from a suspension - you just have to clear that prescription beforehand with the NFL.

I agree it seems sort of dumb - but if they know the rules, which they do, then they deserve the suspension.

Yup. Details are private so players will say it is Adderall because it is perceived a bit differently as evident in this thread.
