@ProFootballTalk: Richard Sherman: Half the NFL takes Adderall http://wp.me/p14QSB-89fX


Thought it had been too long since he had opened his giant damn mouth, makes me doubt his innocence more

"Obviously I didn't do anything"

Says it all really. How does he have this information?

Half the league is diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder? Because, to my knowledge, that's the only way someone can legally get prescribed Adderall... what an idiot.

This is pretty ridiculous, the league doesn't need to remove Adderall from the banned list at all [like Sherman asks], if someone who uses it, really uses it for medical reasons and not performance enhancing reasons, they could simply get a prescription and give it to the league which the league allows.

I get his point, although it's a stupid one at that. If so many people do indeed take it, why does the NFL bother treating it as a banned substance?

Because it works the same as like amphetamines for someone not prescribed to

I know how Adderall works. My point is that if the NFL is unable to stop half the league from taking the drug (again, if this is true), why would they bother trying to police it?

[I think that the NFL needs to get its act together and use the most up-to-date testing procedures, even if it will ultimately 'weaken' the league because users won't have their advantage anymore]

Well if half the league is taking it, then it's ok..../sarcasm

I thought he was an intelligent person from a respectable college?

Sounds like the same argument I tried when I got pulled over yesterday.

"Officer everyone's speeding, why am I getting a ticket?"

Because it's a performance enhancing drug

Like someone said above, everyone speeds. Why bother enforcing it?

Exactly. Just because a lot of people break a rule doesn't mean we should remove the rule -- it just means they should stop breaking it.

The NFL certainly does use up-to-date testing procedures. The thing is, they have little interest in spending money and resources on more intensive drug tests for players with no prior offenses. Urine tests are the cheapest, quickest, and most efficient way to test for banned substances (sans HGH).

Adderall, under typical usage, is out of your system in a matter of a few days or less. It'd be pretty easy to avoid being caught if given any sort of warning or having any assumption of an upcoming test.

Because if you don't you're going to wander down a slippery slope...

What's to stop players from saying, well they used to enforce adderal, but enough of us took it so they waived the ban because they couldn't keep up. So if I take/do (blank) and enough other people do as well, then we could potentially get this lifted as well...

It's just human nature to keep pushing the line...

It's very easy to get a prescription. I failed the ADD test on purpose to get them for school. I can't imagine how easy it'd be for an NFL player.

The same reason steroids are still prohibited in cycling.
