    Yes!  Cocain is a PED!!  It is a stimulant!  Stimulants are PED's!

    Cocain, like Adderall (amphetamine) is a stimulant and is considered to be a PED.  Both are listed on the World Anti -Doping Agency's Banned Performance Enhancing Substance and Methods list.  Both Cocain and Adderall are among the 65 listed in the Stimulants category. 

    Enhances athletic performance in the following ways:

    1. aggressiveness increase
    2. alertness increase
    3. competitiveness increase
    4. responsiveness increase
    5. tiredness reduction
    6. weight loss

    Who better to reinforce Adderall as a PED is none other then Victor Conte.  Here is what he said....

    *********

     

    As far as Adderall being recognized as a focus aid during a game, Bay Area Lab Co-Operative founder Victor Conte told FOXSports.com that drugs like Adderall — despite little literature to back up the effectiveness of such drugs in sports — are indeed considered performance-enhancing.

    During his heyday at BALCO, before his facility was raided by federal authorities nearly a decade ago, Conte widely recommended another prescription stimulant — the narcolepsy drug Modafinil — to his elite athlete clientele.

    “The players wouldn’t be taking (Adderall) if they didn't think it gave them some sort of advantage,'' Conte said. “It helps with reaction time, and I know football players who have taken it. I know a lot of them.”

    ********

    In response to prolate0spheroid's comment:

    Silly argument.  The NFL doesn't call Adderall a "performance-enhancing drug."  It's a "prohibited substance" which comes under a list entitled "certain stimulants." Sudafed is on that list (unless prescribed).




    The NFL doesn't have to call either one a PED.  They are stimulants.  Stimulants are PED's.  And yes, Sudafed is a PED just in case someone here thinks otherwise.

    I realize that the NFL doesn't consider Adderall a performance enhancing drug, but it is.

    I took one of these things by accident once when my sister stayed with me for a few days, this is what happened...I cleaned the house, talked on the phone and worked out...at the same time. I drove down to my mom's house and had maybe the most meaningful conversation with her that I've ever had - then I went outside and cut down a 80 foot oak tree and also sectioned it up into little neat pieces (I had never used a chainsaw before). I then drove home and thought...I have never felt this good in my entire life and I may never feel this good again. When I got home I measured  my bathroom closet door diameter and took my wife and kids to homedepot, where I purchased saws, screws, a sliding door and managed to fit it all in a Honda Accord. When we all got home I tore out the existing door, put the new slider together and shimed/installed it. It was 11 at night when I finished - I hadn't eaten more than a piece of toast since breakfast and I may of had three glasses of water that entire day.

    Now an hour into this adventure I realized I had not taken my lipitor, but something else. And I have to say I did eventually crash after I installed that door and I felt like a miserable grizzly bear. As amazing as I felt throughout most of that day, I imagine that the affects of this drug would become weaker and weaker everytime someone would take it. I can very very easily see why this drug would enhance football performance - in fact I think this drug would enhance performance in many cases (weight loss, test taking, thinking, physical activity, etc).  Now I'm not a person that does drugs, so maybe it had a stronger affect on me than others, but I'm a big guy and my sister is little - I've got to imagine the dose I took wasn't a lot.

    In response to the-redsox-rule's comment:

    I wish we had an offense that could pound the ball and run it down teams throats, even when they knew it was coming. Like Denver in 98 with Terrell Davis. Too much passing doesn't work in the long run, interceptions, dropped passes, kill a drive without using any clock. That's just how I feel about it, I know a lot of you don't feel that way and I respect your opinion, just don't agree.



    I too like a run first offense. TB is a great play action QB so I think it could give the offense more options. The Pats did it with Corey Dillon, and you could argue that the O line is even better now!

    If the Patriots want to improve the running game, they need to pick up another TE whe excels in run blocking (apart from using Gronk). If Gronk is used for blocking, there is no option to throw to him. The Patriots have to make things a lil harder for opponents to recognize what they're trying to run. IMO, they also need to go with one RB for a majority of the plays; let them do everything - screens, runs, play action, block. This will also make it more difficult for opponents to recognize what kind of play is being called.

    In regards to banned substances, unfortunately, there are some misinformed folks here.

    http://images.nflplayers.com/mediaResources/files/Banned%20Substance%20List.pdf

    And what difference does it make? Players are given a list of substances that are banned and those substances are clearly defined and categorized. The NFL basically says: don't use any of these substances.

    Trust me, the Patriots organization (and every other team) is fully aware that some of their own players use banned substances.

    It's so funny to read some of these posts from people who argue about some of these substances not being considered PED's when the information is clearly documented stating they are.  Documented by doctors, Athletic Commissions, the World Anti-Doping Agency.  And some people here are arguing with us who are presenting the documented facts from these athletic commissions, doctors, the the World Anti-Doping Agency, LOL!   Talk about being ignorant!  You are looking like fools!  No wonder you can't be taken serious here when you continue to argue about something you are clearly wrong about.

    Years ago, when Sudafed was easily available I witnessed first hand people taking Sudafed before an athletic event, indicating that it gives high energy, extreme alertness and they don't feel any of their physical problems during the game.

    Again it doesn't matter if the drug is performance enhancing or not.  There's a list of "prohibited substances" (see link below).  You can't take a prohibited substance period.  Whether or not it actually enhances performance doesn't matter. The rules are the rules.  The list is published.  If you're a player it behooves you to know the rules and follow them.  Full stop.

    Once again, Sudafed, Cocain, Adderall are all considered Stimulants.  Stimulants are considered PED's.  I don't get how people don't understand this.  Thes list of banned stimulants are all considered PED's because ...

    Enhances athletic performance in the following ways:

    1. aggressiveness increase
    2. alertness increase
    3. competitiveness increase
    4. responsiveness increase
    5. tiredness reduction
    6. weight loss

    It's amazing, clearly amazing the thick headedness of some people.
