    GIANTS' COACH TOM COUGHLIN DEFENDS SUSPENDED TYLER SASH AGAINST NFL "WATCHDOG"

    Excerpt: "When word broke on Tuesday Tyler Sash had been suspended for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, the Giants’ safety said his “intentions were pure.”
    Today, Tom Coughlin defended Sash.


    “There’s no issue with this young man. He doesn’t need any watchdog over him,” the Giants’ coach said after a rain-shortened practice. “Ignorance is no excuse for the law, I understand, but if he knows what’s expected he does it.” Read more...
    “Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.” MB Rule # 1

      Is there a chance it gets reversed like Andre Browns 4 game Suspenion was
      Football has been very, very good to us.
      After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
      But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

      # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

      1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
      2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
      3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
      4-New York Giants!!!
      5-NE
      Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

        I read that his appeal was denied, so he's off the active roster starting week 1 and can return Oct. 1. Still allowed to participate in preseason games. http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giant...0sqxntGNKup3iJ

          Honestly, ive read so many conflicting things i dont know what opinion and whats fact. i've read that amphetamines and adderol look the same on a test, so many athletes claim it was adderol(and the smart ones even get a prescription for adderol to hide it) and i can't believe that goodell would keep the four game suspension for sash, and lift it for brown at appeal. with brown, it was an nfl doctor who supposedly messed up the paperwork, and with sash, he didnt go to an nfl doctor, he went to his hometown doctor who didnt know to fill out the paperwork. it just sucks either way you think about it. the 4 game suspension sounds severe, but that is the letter of the rule, and he did not fill out paperwork. given the circumstance, we all feel he should be given the benefit of the doubt, but, who knows what really happened. and id like to point out that just because he failed a test in march dos not mean thats when he started taking it. does this put an asterik on the superbowl? hell no, he was a rookie and barely played (what, special teams only?) im conflicted, but ill stick with just having to suck it up

            That is because Adderall is an amphetamine.

              Yeah, not sure about this whole situation but my understanding is that it could have been averted if Sash had gone through the proper channels and let the proper people know.

                  Amphetamines don't make a difference off-season

                  Amphetamines are not like some kind of growth hormone or steroid. Taking amphetamines in the off season would be totally useless to a player. Sash was taking them under a doctor's order in the off season. This suspension just doesn't make ay sense. I would hope the Giants would fight this, not because Sash is that much of an impact player; but some one needs to push back on this.

                    TC wouldn't defend a player so vigorously unless he truly believed the player was being unjustly punished. This gives credence to Sash's side of the case...

                    I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                      Amphetamines may help some as a pre-workout drug. Most pre-workout formulas contain some form of stimulant.
