Denver Broncos LB Von Miller has been officially suspended for 6 games this year for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Am I mad? Nope. He tried to cheat the system and was caught.
Here is Miller’s statement on the situation:
“The Substances of Abuse policy requires everyone to comply with the rules. Although my suspension doesn’t result from a positive test, there is no excuse for my violations of the rules. I made mistakes and my suspension has hurt my team, Broncos fans, and myself. I am especially sorry for the effect of my bad decisions on others. I will not make the same mistakes about adhering to the policy in the future. During my time off the field, I will work tirelessly and focus exclusively on remaining in peak shape. I look forward to contributing immediately upon my return to the field and bringing a championship back to the people of Denver.”
So the test didn’t come out positive, but you still are getting a 6 game suspension because you tried to cheat the test. Still cheating. Test might as well be positive.
