Odd that it took so long to issue the suspension. I am much less concerned about it for that reason, though. With our offense, we will be fine for 4 games. Who knows, like someone else mentioned, maybe it turns into a blessing in disguise if it keeps him fresher for the playoffs.

Yeah, I mentioned earlier that a bunch of players have been getting popped for Adderall (or that's what the players claim, anyway). Although, it's supposedly fine to use as long as it's prescribed and you report it to the league offense.

Waaaaay too optimistic. Let us have our best player out for 4 games so he can be fresh for the playoffs. You step up in the playoffs like the Ravens last season.

So, again......on a positive note, perhaps Von has been clean ever since 2011.

Hopefully he states as much in his upcoming "statement".

The Von Miller situation is getting even more confusing.

Adam Schefter of ESPN has reported that Miller is facing a four-game suspension for violating a league policy. Schefter has yet to report whether Miller violated the substance-abuse policy or the PED policy.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Miller has violated both policies. Per Klis, Miller tested positive for amphetamines and marijuana in 2011. The former, which is the active ingredient in Adderall and other related substances, would trigger an automatic four-game suspension under the PED policy. The latter would require at least three violations before a suspension arises.

It appears, then, that the suspension comes from the positive test for amphetamine. But itís still unclear why it has taken so long to get the appeal resolved.

In late 2011, there was some suspicion that the league tapped the brakes on a couple of potential suspensions in order to avoid derailing Tebowmania. In 2012, the Broncos were among the leagueís darlings, given the arrival of Peyton Manning. Thereís no evidence that the process as to Miller has been delayed in any way to help the Broncos, however.

And thereís also no evidence that the process will be resolved any time soon. Until Millerís appeal has been heard and decided, heíll carry the stigma of being a cheater. Unfortunately for Miller, the fact that someone blabbed means that Miller will have that stigma in the eyes of some, even if he wins.

"Molly" is an amphetamine. I guess the league considers all amphetamines PED's? Even if it just improves his rave performance?


"MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine) is an empathogenic drug of the phenethylamine and amphetamine classes of drugs. MDMA has become widely known as "ecstasy" (shortened to "E", "X", or "XTC"), usually referring to its street pill form, although this term may also include the presence of possible adulterants. The term "mandy" or "molly" colloquially refers to MDMA in powder or crystalline form, usually implying a higher level of purity.[3]

That's all he's saying, though, right? That amphetamines fall under the PED policy. And like it or not.....Von will be labeled a "cheater". People hear "PED", and they automatically classify you as being on the same level as HGH and steroid users.

I know you're trying to be funny, but there's some truth there. The NFL should have absolutely no say in it. If you are following the laws in your state, it's none of their goddamn business.

Again, he's not saying (nor am I) that Molly would "enhance" one's play on the field. But simply that amphetamines fall under that PED policy.

Therefore, people will hear that and assume Von is a cheater.

Right or wrong.....that's how it is.

Leverage Broncos in future contract talks (if he makes it that far). His behavior (that has been posted on the net-porn stars, parties, Playboy Mansion with Snoop Dog) does not bode well. Not really a surprise to be honest.

Dude, I know. it's just a dumbass assumption. His fault, though, to be known as a cheater stoner. Oh well, I hope he had a good time.

Is this before or after the man to man conversation he has with himself in the locker room mirror?

Agreed. But all non-Bronco fans will say this.....that Von is a "cheater".

Heck, Richard Sherman took Adderall.....an amphetamine for attention deficit disorder.

But yeah, he's a "cheater", too.

Sigh. Guess everyone should be able to drink on the job too right? I mean, since it's legal and all, it's none of their business.

Exactly. Especially airline traffic controllers. They should be able to drink or come to work hung over.

Drinking is LEGAL, damn it! Where's the outrage?!?
