    Andre Brown appealing 4 game suspension:

    From CBS Sports: RB Andre Brown is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing substance ban. However, he told CBSSports.com that he's in the midst of the appeals process. “I don't know what I can and cannot say,” he said. “It was something that I've been on since I've been in the league, which was adderall. I just forgot to fill out some paperwork and that was it.”

    Sounds like he may get off the hook if thats what it was.

    I got a ring! He got one too!

    I hope he gets a break, he deserves one for sure. Basically, this could be his career on the line.

    and if it's for adderol who cares? theres no unfair advantage given to him by taken adderol, unless he was taking tests, or trying to drink all day.

    NCAA bans certain energy supplements and drinks, So its not a stretch to think aderall is banned by both them and the NFL.

    If he has a dr's slip I don't think there is really much discussion

    It gave him an unfair advantage in the film room because he was so focused! /s

    Not saying that he isn't legitimately on Aderall, but you don't think that being on amphetamines would have any kind of benefit on the field? How high are you?

    Its all about dosage, but you are right one could get the same effects from adderall as one can from meth, they are both amphetamines.

    Exactly. If he's on it for legitimate purpose following a prescribed dose and dosing schedule, then yeah, there wouldn't be any performance enhancing qualities and it's a non-issue. If it was just a matter of a paperwork snafu, then I'm sure he'll win his appeal.

    However, to make the claim that being on amphetamines wouldn't have a beneficial effect is just silly and rather beside the point, too.
