For the second time this summer, a Dolphin has been suspended because they don’t know what they are putting into their own bodies. Reshad Jones and Dion Jordan are both out 4 games each because they took banned substances.
There is a question about if they did this knowingly. Did they take a banned substance knowingly and hope to avoid getting caught? Or did they truly not know what was in their supplements? Either way, they are ignorant.
If you take this stuff, the league WILL catch you, So don’t take it on purpose. And if it’s an accident, then look at the ingredients BEFORE you ingest it. Ask the team trainer. Ask the team lawyer. Anyone. Get a second opinion. Do NOT not not not not take supplement without checking first.
Why is a Dolphins blog telling this to Dolphins players? Because apparently, Joey Philbin is not telling them. Twice this summer a player didn’t know the rules, and twice they have been suspended. Philbin needs to lead more strongly. He needs to lead IN ADVANCE of these events, and not wait for them to occur to sound tough.
