Poped a molly, im suspended, WOOO
The NFL has suspended Dallas Cowboys Orlando Scandrick for the first four games of the season because he was tested ‘positive’ for molly. Yikes!
According to ESPN, MDMA (which is also known as Ecstasy or Molly), sometimes contains an amphetamine component, which falls under the league’s PED policy that led to Scandrick’s punishment
The violation occurred while Scandrick was vacationing in Mexico with his ex-girlfriend, Draya.
He claimed she persuaded him to add the substance into a cocktail they were drinking— although he didn’t realize it was on the banned list.
Scandrick failed the drug test in April and the league made the decision to suspend him on Monday. ESPN reports he will lose approximately $1 million through four missed game checks and a signing bonus repayment.
A statement was released through Scandrick’s agent Ron Slavin claiming Scandrick was unaware that he took a banned substance.
I would like to apologize to my children, my family, the Jones family, my coaches, my teammates and my fans. Failing a drug test is far out of my character, and although I never knowingly took a performance-enhancing drug/banned stimulant while on vacation in Mexico, I take full responsibility for what goes in my body and more importantly for the embarrassment of a failed drug test. It’s my goal by issuing this statement to clear my name and more importantly to be judged by what happens to me in the future.
I hope that my family, my Cowboys football family and all my fans can forgive me for this situation. I look forward to a successful 2014 season.
Scandrick will be eligible to return to the active roster on Sept. 29.
