    Burfictís defense doesnít hold water. There have been 51 positive tests in last 3 years for pedís. One has been overturned for tainted meat in Mexico.

    Aren’t ped’s banned substances in the NFL? And he tested positive before he was out for season. And it doesn’t really matter because they are banned all year, not just during the season.

    All PEDs are banned substances, but not all banned substances are PEDs. He didnt test positive for street drugs. Potentially he could win. Additionally,
    I read the test took place on 12/27. He was done by then.

    He wasn’t listed as inactive with the Bengals until 12/30 though. I don’t see any way he wins an appeal even if it was prescribed for his injuries. Every player knows there are banned substances and they have a number to call to clear any medicine they take. I hope it wasn’t prescribed by the team doctor as that would be a huge mistake. My guess it came from his personal doctor and no one cleared it with the NFL.

    No thanks. He is a middle linebacker that can't play middle linebacker. That is why the Bengals always put him at weak side he can't call the plays or make adjustments.

    You do realize even though he may not be in the middle he is the one calling the plays. He is the one making the adjustments once an offense comes to the line.

    I know you mostly post stuff to get reactions. But man it's seriuosly old the amount of un true stuff you post on here when you literally have no clue on what you are saying on some topics.

    What’s the old saying? The greatest ability is availability?

    He may have a case if this is all true.

    On balance, there is a waiver process players can utilize if they want to use something on the banned list. This stuff is pounded into their heads, so I generally don’t garner much sympathy. Obviously there is more to be released with this story.

    Wrong Minter or Rey called plays and made adjustments.

    Um no you are wrong. Rey didn't call the plays. Burfict is the one who had the radio in his helmet. Burfict is the one who called the plays in the huddle and Burfict is the one who makes the adjustments at the line. Pretty well known that Burfict is considered the smartest player on the Bengals defense in terms of x and os. Please just stick to stuff that you know about and not just guessing at.

    You can disagree and you will be wrong. The only games Burfict wasn't calling plays or adjustments was the games he didn't play. When he plays he does all of that.

    If Ót was something he was prescribed, which I highly doubt, it likely won't matter if he didn't clear it with the league.
