Bombers Johnson tests positive for recreational drug “Sally”

Winnipeg Blue Bomber defensive back Bruce Johnson has been suspended for two games after testing positive for the recreational drug methylenedioxyamphetamine, otherwise known as MDA or “Sally.”

It is similar to the MDMA or ecstasy but with a enhanced psychedelic element. It would appear to have no performance-enhancing characteristics (on the football field, anyway.)

Johnson, who has started 11 games this season and 45 over his three year CFL career, issued a statement through the team.

“I take full responsibility for my decisions and accept the disciplinary action. I apologize to my coaches, teammates, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers organization and Bomber fans, and will use this as a learning opportunity for myself. I hope to return following my suspension and help our team continue the push toward the playoffs.”

Johnson is the second player suspended under the league’s revamped substance abuse policy announced last April.

    The airport is to the northwest of the stadium Bruce go find it

  2. Appears that the revamped policy is working.

  3. Sally? Believe it’s called “Molly”? Google Miley Cyrus for her thing on “Molly”!! Doesn’t help with his football game, but will definitely help with his “coital endurance” game!!

  4. Did Commish Bo approve of this?

  5. i think the team should be fined towards the salry cap if this happened to one of the rider players the cfl would be fining the team

  6. Don’t expect the league to be consistent or fair in their treatment of any incident. They appear petty, small minded, and vengeful in their decision making.

  7. “It would appear to have no performance-enhancing characteristics”

    Then there should be no suspension. What he does on his own time is his own business. My employer couldn’t care less what I do on the weekend insofar as it doesn’t affect my job, and thats the way it should be. But I guess since the CFL is so desperate to drape itself in police and military culture like the league to the south, they have to toe the line and carry out a war on personal freedom here too.

  8. anybody t6hink there will be any big trades on wedsneday for trade deadline

    Not so much. He is an athlete that represents the Winnipeg Football Club and by extension, the CFL. Any unlawful activities waarant punishment. If he beat up his girlfriend or sold steroids, would that be enough to warrant punishment? These policies are in place for a reason and I for one support them.
