Bombers Canadian OL Qadr Spooner suspended for failed drug test

The CFL has suspended Winnipeg Blue Bombers Canadian offensive lineman Qadr Spooner for two games after he tested positive for the banned substance methasterone.

Spooner has yet to appear in a game for Winnipeg. The six-foot-four, 305-point native of Brossard, Que., was taken 15th overall by the Bombers in the 2017 CFL draft.

“The Winnipeg Blue Bombers fully support the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs, and trust Qadr will be more conscious of his decisions moving forward,” Blue Bombers general manager Kyle Walters said in a statement.

Under the CFL and CFL Players’ Association’s joint drug policy, players who test positive will face a two-game suspension for a first doping violation, a nine-game suspension for a second violation, a one-year suspension for a third and a lifetime ban for a fourth.

A suspended player cannot participate in regular- or post-season games, but can be involved in other team activities at the club’s discretion.

    Maybe he was unaware of what he was taken or maybe he was.
    Either way, let’s hope he has learned a lesson and can resume a prosperous football career

    Don’t want to follow the rules, except your punishment like a man.
    Straight up, pay the Piper, welcome back.

  3. Chris Jones fault

    Say no to drugs.

  5. ALL Offensive Linemen are bulking up with steroids!!
    Some are not masking it and hoping they don’t get caught.
    The Canadian O-linemen need to bulk up with the roids to compete – Let them

    Jeff, you need to some brain enhancing drugs. Yours isn’t functioning properly.
    Suggesting players should be allowed to take steroids ignores all medical evidence of the horrible affects this has on human beings.
    Then you say that CANADIAN O-linemen need to
    take supplements to be able to compete with
    Americans? In other words, you figure they are genetically inferior?
    If you had attached any kind of ethic label to that assertion, you’d be branded a racist. But you figure it’s okay to denigrate Canadians in this manner?

    Your views are repugnant and you should apologize to Canadians for expressing such moronic views.

    Yup…why did you open your yap for the purpose of enticement? This makes you a troll that you of all people complain about the most.

  8. Young men make mistakes. Hope he learns and can move on. Chris Jones is at fault.

  9. Probably got them from some immoral stampeder. Cheaters

    ddg and esksuck…two more rider trolls. Are you smart enough to make the realization? Didn’t think so.

    I’m a Bomber fan but no need for this, he will accept his punishment and learn from it . Hopefully it was a mistake in that he took some supplement and didn’t know this banned substance was in it. If not and he tried to get away with something then I’m glad he got caught, i hope he learned his lesson. I think he could have a promising CFL career, but do it legally.

  12. It must be that the Stampeder organization is adding the banned substance to all other teams Gator-Aid jugs! Or perhaps it was Chris Jones adding it!
    Seriously I applaud the CFL for policing the use of any performance enhancing drugs!

  13. I blame Jason Maas.

  14. From Wiki: “Methasterone resurfaced in 2005 as a “designer steroid”. It was brought to market by Designer Supplements as the primary ingredient of a dietary supplement…Methasterone was .. sold as an over-the-counter dietary supplement.”

    You’ve got to be pretty disingenuous to claim that you didn’t know you were taking a “designer steroid.” I wish he would have just left it at an apology and not gone on about how he “couldn’t understand how…” Reminds me of heart break sprinter Ben Johnston.

  15. im a bombers fan, we have no need for anyone like that on our team, keep the likes of the druggies to the stamps team.

        Wow listen to this guy what are you 5 years old??

  16. Historic McMahon // August 9, 2018 at 8:44 pm //

    I’m beginning to detest the Bombers just as much as the Riders because of their stupid fans.
