    Wasn't Andre Brown also supposed to be suspended for the same thing but he won his appeal?

    Andre Brown must have naked pictures of Roger Goddell or something because he also wasn't fined for tweeting during the game last week.

    I was thinking the same thing. Attention Deficit Disorder in High Definition seems to be a huge problem.

    it will enhance performance in someone who does not suffer from what it is prescribed for......and even sometimes in those who do

    it is an amphetamine .....a stimulant

    it causes a constant release of adrenaline and will cause the average person to be intensely focussed

    it will also increase heart rate

    I would also imagine it is pretty easy to get a prescription for in this day and age of throwing medication at everything. With any behavioral disorder it would be difficult to disprove, especially if you can mimic the symptoms. Probably why so many are getting busted with it right now, though a few probably legitimately need it.
