Oh yea, forgot to add... f**k them!
Adderall is a kind of stimulant that's prescribed for ADHD and narcolepsy. It's abused on college campuses as a "study drug," allowing students to stay alert and hyper-focused for long periods of time.
For athletes, it provides less fatigue, more energy, and greater focus both in the meeting room and on the field.
The NFL does allow the use of Adderall for players who have a prescription. But only a handful of players are said to be in that category.
A good video overview can be found here:
Browner and Sherman will appeal, so it's not a done deal yet (Sherman categorically denies ever using Adderall). Personally, I'd rather beat the Seahawks on their own field, with all their best players. Far more satisfying.
