    Sarcasm, really? You're the one who whined about others being sarcastic and you are the one who posted, “Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit.” Beyond that can you not understand two concepts simultaneously? While Charles Woodson is on his way to the HOF and Mike Neal is in a struggle to make the roster, they can share characteristics such as both being labeled “injury prone” before they were acquired by the Packers.

    Not being able to understand what “and/or” means is one thing, but your use of sarcasm must break the forum record for such a quick display of hypocrisy. :tdown:


    And congrats to Frank for what must be a record setting turnaround! You must have been pissed off and hopeful at the same time. ;)

    TJV - be gentle now. Any sign of wit, even its lowest form, can be considered an improvement.

    As I also felt "pissed off" and "hopeful" at the same time when Neal's name was called, I guess, I too win the award. I was pissed as Neal was not on my wish list from the remaining available players, but hopeful that the Packer brass was pulling a gem from the rough.

    I'm actually surprised. How could anyone do that poorly while on steroids? Aren't they supposed to make you play better in exchange for turning your junk into a microwave hotdog?

    This was my favorite part of the PFT article:

    "Packers defensive end Mike Neal lost the appeal of his four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances, but his adamant that he wasn’t suspended for taking a performance-enhancing drug. As evidence his performance was not enhanced, Neal supplied the league tape of his play during the 2011 season. In upholding his suspension the panel agreed his play was terrible but stated, 'that doesn't change the results of the test'."

    (JK - I added the last two sentences.)

    If true, what a shame - Neal had an uphill battle without the suspension. If it was the result of his not notifying the Packers about a prescription drug…

    I'm guessing the chances are not great he'll be around. Just the # of players TT has been bringing in our rumored to be bringing in says something. I think TT learned from the Harrell situation and is moving on quicker.

    LOL! You suckered me in to that one as I hadn't read the original link. As I was reading your post, I was thinking, "I can't believe they wrote this!"

    you can't give up on a guy with his potential yet. His injuries have been frustrating and if what he is saying about the circumstances of his positive test are true, we must see if he can stay healthy for once.

    What if Mike Neal actually blossoms into a stud?
    Can you imagine that?

    And I thought his problem was that he was allergic to offensive linemen. :giggle:

    I don't know how you can watch tape of Neal last year and think that Adderall is an effective performance enhancing drug.

    If it turns out he genuinely had a prescription for Adderall and it didn't find it's way to the league office for whatever reasons, then I really hope he get's it overturned. I mean, it worked for Andre Brown, so there's no reason it shouldn't work for Neal, provided it's legit. Otherwise the suspension should stand.

    On the real though, I am in my 20's and actually started taking Adderall a couple of months ago myself. Believe me...you can get a lot of **** done. Is it performance enhancing? On a football field not really, in a study and work environment I would say yes. There are all sorts of performance enhancing drugs though, caffeine, nicotine, chocolate. They all have their own effects. It reminds me of one of my favorite comedians telling one of my favorite jokes...

    Greg Giraldo " they want to keep Bonds and McGwire out of the Hall of Fame because they took an illegal substance, a performance enhancing substance. You know what else is an illegal substance? Crack, crack cocaine is an illegal substance but nobody is taking gold records away from Whitney Houston. And you might say, well yea that's because it's not a performance enhancing drug...really? Have you ever tried crack? Believe me, you can get a lot done."

    Assuming Neal tells us the truth about this...... :cautious:

    Shouldn't he have had enough knowledge about the rules??
    Taking a medicine, especially one that has to be prescribed,
    is ALWAYS risk-entailing, because of the NFL rules that ban performance
    enhancing substances. You can't just gulp down any pill in the
    medicine chest.
    And the dirty pee that got him in trouble, was not the first sample
    he ever sent to the league, I assume.

    Means: He should have been aware of this. Bonehead!! :mad:
