Speedy Banks tests positive

I guess thats why they call him"Speedy"

Banks tested positive for Methylenedioxyamphetamine.

“The Hamilton Tiger-Cats fully endorse the Canadian Football League’s joint drug testing/substance abuse policy with the CFLPA, and we’re very disappointed to learn of Brandon’s violation. He has acknowledged his error in judgment and is now being held accountable for his actions. We support Brandon as an organization and will help him by any means possible to continue to grow as a football player and person off the field. We fully expect him to play at a high level when he returns to the lineup after serving his two-game suspension.?

This comment is not specifically aimed at Brandon Banks, but ...

I'm glad to see the league catching more players for PEDs this year. I believe this is the third suspension this year. Nice to see! :thup:


WOW, it is one thing after another for the Cats.

Speed, stated he wants to get back and bring a Grey Cup to the city of Hamilton.

Forget that , they just need to worry about winning a game.

With all the problems they have, I think they are having a confidence problem.

Kent has a real problem on his hands. Many actually.

Good luck with all this.

Wonder if the posters calling riders cheaters will walk the walk and equally slam the juicers we have seen more lately and the teams that don't cut them ?

It's not a performance enhancing drug it's a drug to get you high.
I don't know why the team would state that "we fully expect him to play at a HIGH LEVEL" ??................ :oops: :oops:
Were they trying to make a joke?

Probably explains his play of late, which one can best describe as...lacklustre....

  1. No need for Riders persecution syndrome in this thread.

  2. It's a recreational drug, not a performance enhancer. So no, he's not not juicer.

Wait! Isn't that the chemical name for Viagara?

honestly, why do players even bother? you're going to get caught.

just don't do it.

It's the old saying, "If you're not cheating, you're not trying".

Good catch on that phrasing. :lol:


Actually, it is both a recreational drug and a performance enhancer as it is a stimulant.

Actually it is a mental stimulant while tripping but from a physical point of view it is the exact opposite of a PED for at least a day after its use.

That might explain his performance, or lack thereof, in some games. Some games, he's looked downright sluggish. Well, sluggish for him.


Dear Brandon

You should not need to check a chart to know Ecstasy is prohibited.

Some people's children...



Don't worry, his mama has got it covered :smiley:

Not necessarily, it depends on which isomer he used. If it was 2,3 methylenedioxyamphetamine it's a stimulant with little or no psychotropic effects. If it was 3,4 methylenedioxyamphetamine then it is the recreational form.

He will be now forever known as Cheaty Banks
