Cowboys | Wilson suspended for five games
Sat, 1 Sep 2007 10:47:08 -0700

The Dallas Cowboys announced assistant coach Wade Wilson has been notified that he is suspended for the team's first five regular-season games and fined $100,000 for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing drugs, according to an NFL spokesperson. Wilson has acknowledged purchasing and using such prohibited substances. Evidence supports his statements that he used the substances for personal use only, did not distribute the substances to other people, and has stopped using those substances. He is eligible to be reinstated Oct. 9.

You know you is an i-d-i-o-t if you are a coach and get kicked for 'roids. That's like getting fired on your day off.

Maybe he's been hangin' out with his wacky step-brother.

IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson apologized Saturday for any embarrassment he brought to the team and his family because of his NFL suspension for using a banned substance.

Wade Wilson

Wilson

But Wilson, a 48-year-old former quarterback who played for five teams in 18 NFL seasons, doesn't regret trying to "improve the quality of my life" after living with diabetes for more than 20 years.

"I wasn't taking the product to enhance performance. I am way past that. I was taking it to try to improve my quality of life," he said. "At no time did I think I was doing anything illegal or against league policy."

Wilson was suspended five games by the NFL on Saturday for buying and using performance-enhancing substances. He was also fined $100,000. The New York Daily News reported Wilson received human growth hormone while working for the Chicago Bears, where he had been quarterbacks coach since 2004.
Quote:
"The idea that I was trying to get this for anyone else is absolutely ludicrous," he told ESPN.com.

Wilson said he first learned he was being investigated by the league on Aug. 17 and he met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Aug. 21.

The league said that Harrison, Wilson and Richard Ryzde, a former doctor for the Pittsburgh Steelers, were customers of an Internet pharmaceutical distribution ring for steroids and other performance enhancers being investigated by the Albany (N.Y.) D.A.

"When I talked to the commissioner I was very forthright with him," Wilson said. "There was no denial that I took the product. I was fully cooperative with the commissioner, Jerry and everybody else involved."

Wilson said he purchased the substance last fall to help him deal with the impact of diabetes. He has had problems with fatigue, kidney function, vision and sleep patterns because of the illness.

Wilson added he disposed of the substance because his blood sugar levels were "all over the map."

"I don't regret that I did that," Wilson said. "I definitely should have gone down a different avenue."

"Echoing some of the comments he made to the Dallas Morning News, Wilson said that he discovered an alternative therapy after seeing an item on 60 Minutes regarding the use of controversial treatments to improve the quality of life in persons who were feeling the effects of age and/or illness. Wilson admitted that he knew that the use of such substances is "controversial" in the medical community, but he says that he had no idea that it is illegal.

He explained that, while he was researching the topic on the Internet, an ad popped up (um . . . we won't go there) for the Palm Beach Rejuvenation Center. The web site seemed legitimate, and he eventually found himself taking a physical and providing a blood sample in Chicago, and thereafter talking by phone to a doctor in Florida, whom Wilson assumed to be on the level.

Wilson took the physical in September 2006, and began using the substances he purchased in October 2006. He used a personal credit card in his own name to buy the substances, and had them delivered to his office in Halas Hall, the headquarters of the Chicago Bears.

He said that he stopped using the substances after a couple of months, because it was causing his blood-sugar levels to spin out of control.

Wilson's name thereafter surfaced as a purchaser of banned substances in the wake of a criminal investigation regarding the Palm Beach Rejuvenation Center and Signature Pharmacy in Orlando. And Wilson says that, once he landed on the NFL's radar, he was up front and he came clean."

Per article on profootball.com.

Having Diabetes can cause a lot of other problems with one's health. You can't fault a guy for trying different options to improve his "quality of life".

However he should have done more research on the options for "controversal remedies".
