A caveat, 1Artist: I'd like to defer to you on this, but I must say biggrin.

Sadly 2 of their first 4 games are against the eagles and raiders so they'll still be able to win without von. But their first two games against Bal and @ the Giants just got harder.

It would have been nice if we had been an opponent in one of those four games. Let's hope he's not the same player after cleaning up.

According to PFT -- take that for what it's worth -- he's being busted for pot and adderall, not 'roids. 

Big difference from Merrieman and Castillo -- or Chao and his opioids.

Don't really care what it's for... he's being suspended & that's the bottom line

How is this in any way, shape or form close to Merriman's?

It's reported as Weed and Molly which doesn't give him any advantages at all.

And he weighed 230-240 in college, and has been around 240-250 in the pros.

Certainly dumb on his part though.

Purely just being suspended... Don't care for what as I said. Merriman was suspended & most likely so will Miller. That's how as you ask

I'm hearing he tested positive for adderall too though, which is much closer to Merriman territory.

I read that, too, Syx, but unless the (alleged) aderall was on gameday it doesn't really give him an advantage. 

Seriously, if you had to bet $500 on recreational versus performance enhancing, where would you lay your money?

There could be something there. I had to look adderall up and see what it does to a person to see why people would take it. The NYT had a good article on it and it does sound like it could boost play in a football game. I'm just guessing that if it was in conjunction with pot that the aderall was for recreational use. 

The marijuana part of it is a joke. It's an outdated Nancy Reagan-esque show by the NFL to show that they're, you know, zero-tolerance and stuff.

I wish the owners approached PEDs with the same zeal as pot. But it's not in their financial interest to do so, I suppose, so they don't.

I wouldn't presume that he didn't take it on gamedays, and it would help him during workouts by allowing him to overcome the natural fatigue of day after day of practice and lifting.  It's a banned substance for a reason.

Re: VON MILLER SUSPENDED 


Adderall of course is an amphetamine which primary use is to help concentration and focus in people with ADHD.  It can help people lose weight but not really sure it provides much of a competitive advantage physically.   It can be used recreationally of course and non ADD students use it to help them stay up and study.  I do think it is worse to use androgenic steroids ( see Merriman) which clearly is a way to cheat. I also agree with Hunter i believe that the NFL should not even bother to test for THC which is not much different that alcohol except for some reason it is still illegal for recreational use.

Except in Colorado of course pirate

Nice to see someone with some actual knowledge of what he's talking about speak about the effects of Aderall. 

Both substances are banned in the NFL.  Miller, weeks after guaranteeing a superbowl, gets caught using this stuff.  This isn't what leaders do.  My hope is he learns from this and never repeats this behaviour but the fact that his reaction to the news he was suspended was a tweet saying "I did nothing wrong" concerns me.

You mean other than the "screwing your team by selfishly being suspended" part?

Oops Broncos fans! Great news. This stuff is tough to swallow, especially because they are being mentioned with the dreaded SB word. I like the Bolts lying low, no more Phillips drama, Merrimen crap, VJ duis, Cro throwing bottles, etc. a quiet offseason is good. Let the Pats and Donks have fun with this off the field stuff.

The Broncos knew...and now we know why they signed Phillips.
