    Adderal is on the PED banned list. If it was adderal, he would have been popped under the Performance Enhancing Drug program.

    Substance abuse violations are for weed, coke, etc. and that's what he was flagged for.

    If it was not performance enhancing it means it was a second failed test. If the Ravens believe that Thompson is SS of the future than this does not alter draft plans. You don't draft someone for 4 games.

    I'm sure it's weed but he should still say it's adderal

    Agreed.

    But I also feel players should adhere to the rules that are in place.

    Thing is, the stuff in weed like THC sticks to fat cells. So someone who is lazy, obese, and smokes weed all the time will take a long time to get clean. But if you have a high metabolism and are in good shape you could be a heavy daily smoker and pass in 30 days or less.

    I don't think it's weed, but if it is and he knew about the test, he is a moron.

    Re: Christian Thompson suspended 4 games

    For the life of me I don't get the whole weed testing thing. It is certainly not a performance enhancing drug.

    I am sure some stick in the mud will babble about how its illegal (ridiculous) and blah blah blah

    Would I want Flacco hitting the bong Micheal Phelps style ...prob not. That said suspending them 4 games seems a bit goofy for the equivalent of having a beer.

    Then there's drugs like cocaine, heroin, and prescription painkillers that leave the system in a matter of days. So if you smoke pot a lot, you better wait a month before you even consider taking a drug test. But if you have an opiate addiction all you need is 3-4 days. Stupid, but that's just how the body works.

    Yes, 105.7 fm was just saying last week the Ravens had hi hopes for this dude. Ed Reed worked with him before he was drafted and then afterwards. He was like Reed's protege. He had much promise.

    What an ass hole if true.

    What blows my mind is that anyone ever gets caught. In my disreputable past I was a habitual partaker of the Devil's tobacco and it literally only takes about 5 days to flush your system well enough to fool a urinalysis, even if you're a daily user.

    Clean out kits containing diuretics are sold in head shops and believe it or not they work pretty well. Just stop smoking for a work week, and drink as much water and Gatorade as you can stomach while also popping those diuretics. You'll piss every 15 minutes but by day 6, it'll be clean at least 90% of the time.

    If a guy can't lay a bong down for a week to get his piss clean, that doesn't bode well for him.

    I think most people feel the same way.

    The thing is though its basically *legal* by back door means.

    Testing is always done around the start of the league year and, assuming you pass, you're not tested again for another year.

    So all you need to do is put the bong down around mid January just to be safe and you're golden.

    The fact anyone fails at all is a testament to how stupid some of these players are.

    Re: Christian Thompson suspended 4 games

    Quoting Aaron W in his article linked earlier
    "We have been aware of this situation for some time," Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said in a statement.

    I'd assume it is THC, and that he had a positive test before.
    Also assume that his current tests are done with gas chromatography which are far more sensitive than urine. You can pass a urine test with 50 nanograms/ml but have to be under 15 nanograms/ml for the GC.
    Takes a lot longer to get "clean" and even if you are not smoking but at a party where others are, or your girlfriend smokes in bed....
    Yes bonehead for sure! but I'm reserving judgement..
    If nothing else he is now camp fodder and a free roster spot for 4 weeks.

    I'll be watching to see if James Ihedigbo is the starter at SS and who backs up Huff at FS.... in short I will be sniffing for clues as to the FO intentions to cut bait as soon as they can, or to just have plan B/C ready in case. Don't have a clue if they are actively looking to get rid of him or passively looking to replace him (at least not yet, but the quote says Ozzie knew for some time, so plans are in place)
    To understand paranoid people better, follow them around.
