I don’t have it in front of me but he seems to have a legitimate appeal case. He SAYS that he and his wife took fertility drugs in April or something. A few days later he found out it contained a substance banned. He immediately notified the league and team before any failed test was known. And he couldn’t possibly have used it in April as a ‘performance enhancer.”

 

IF all of that is true he has a good case and the NFL will probably still deny it. ;)

NFL could take that into consideration and lower it by 2 games.  It still would help the Bills D.

If that’s the case they should really let him off the hook.

If it is for fertility it definitely is a "performance enhancer" but not in the NFL sense probably.

I can't remember the last time a player won an appeal on a drug suspension. Assuming this sticks our defense will have an easy time in week 2. Just stop Barkley.

So he took a banned substance. His suspension will hold for sure.

 

With the list of stuff they can't take being a mile long, why would they not check every single time they are about to try something new? Seems simple.

Banned for taking a substance that is not allowed. Reasons don't really matter. He took it.

 

Anyone can make up a sob story after they get caught. True or not, I just cant see the league budging.

The player’s union might not want to allow that in the next CBA like they did last time. Goodell is the judge, jury, and executioner because the players agreed.

They signed him? I saw where the Giants were working him out but don't know if they officially signed him yet. If so, that's fine by me. Bills backfield should have a decent day against the Giants, hopefully anyways...

 

EDIT: Just saw in the KB thread that Giants are no longer interested it seems. Wow they are in a big mess at WR lol

I know, right?  The league has a list of banned substances, how hard can it be to print it out and take it to the Drs office?

Except that...performance enhancing drugs are banned year round for a reason.  The off-season and certainly April are when players are trying to gain strength.   "Try to gain strength in the off-season, try to maintain strength through the season"  Not saying Tate's story isn't true or that he shouldn't be granted an appeal, but it's Bullcrackle that taking a drug in April "couldn't possibly have been used as a performance enhancer'.

Did he win his appeal?

The more plausible story is that he was taking something, got tested, knew he was busted, and created a story to try to cover his butt.

 

Or he's just an idiot and actually started taking fertility drugs without checking if something in them is banned. Why would he check AFTER he started taking them?

These guys are responsible to know what they are ingesting. Even if what he says is true that doesn’t make him any less guilty. It is drummed into their heads to know what they are putting into their body.

Except it appears he told NFL before he was caught.

Before the results, but AFTER the test was administered.
