    He is not denying it. He openly admitted to taking it and said it was his fault. The doc said it was ok but he should have consulted with the NFLPA and looked at their list for banned supplements etc. His appeal was already denied, so hes out 4 weeks. Not a big deal.

    Any 10 year NFL vet knows that he needs to check to see if anything he's putting into his body is going to set them off. I will never fully buy the story. I am a casual fan, and I know that the NFL tests for stuff that seems like it has no relevance to cheating. I'm not a 10 year employee, and I know that.

    He is paying the price for cheating, or for carelessness. One of the two. Doesn't really matter which.

    Go titans.

    Surprised the league didn't suspend him for three games, just to spite us. The same way they suspended Antonio Smith for two games last year, except one of them was a preseason game and then week one against the Chargers. Came back just in time to play the Titans. Bullshit.

    Clomid is commonly used after discontinuing the usage of steroids. Its what they call post cycle therapy. When you use steroids your bodies natural production of testosterone plummets and clomid is used to kickstart your bodies own production back up. That is the simplest way I can explain it without going into a bunch of scientific jargon. Obviously this is why he was using it and he got caught. What an idiot if you ask me he's been in the league long enough to know how to get away with this stuff. Anyone calling him a cheater is naïve, everyone is on this stuff. Only dumb players get caught.
