The Denver Broncos’ Live betting fans were stunned when they learned that Wes Welker has no choice but to miss the regular season’s first four games after he ended up testing positive for amphetamine laced with ecstasy.
News of the wide receiver’s suspension was announced on Tuesday by the NFL and the Denver Broncos.
It was also reported that the player’s trip to the Kentucky Derby was linked to his positive drug test.
The WR told the Denver Post that the league’s drug-testing process has flaws, and that he would never take a performance enhancing drug if he was aware of it.
“I’m as shocked as everyone at todays news,” the player said. “I want to make one thing abundantly clear: I would NEVER knowingly take a substance to gain a competitive advantage in any way. Anyone who has ever played a down with me, lifted a weight with me, even eaten a meal with me, knows that I focus purely on what I put in my body and on the hard work I put in year round to perform at the highest levels year-in and year-out.
“I want any youth football players and all sports fans to know, there are NO shortcuts to success, and nothing but hard work and studying, leads to success.
“I have never been concerned with the leagues performance enhancing or drug abuse policies because under no scenario would they ever apply to me, but I now know, that (drug-policy procedures) are clearly flawed, and I will do everything in my power to ensure they are corrected, so other individuals and teams aren’t negatively affected so rashly like this.”
The wide receiver was very angry after the release of a report about him using “Molly” – which is a nickname for the drug MDMA – a type of ecstasy that in theory is more pure.
“I wouldn’t have any idea where to get a Molly or what a Molly is,” the player said. “That’s a joke. I don’t do marijuana, I don’t do drugs. I don’t do any drugs.”
Cody Latimer and Emmanuel Sanders will have to intensify their game in the absence of Welker, and the team’s Live Betting fans would like to see how the whole team will perform after the player’s suspension. Denver’s fans believe that it might be a bit difficult for the team readjust, but are confident that they shouldn’t have any major issues doing so.
