Only On The Dark Side...

Only On The Dark Side...

We always like to have a bit of a chuckle about our near neighbours at Bramall Lane - and good old Paddy Kenny is often the target...

The Blunts' number one stopper has been in the headlines before for all the wrong reasons, and he's been at it again after being suspended by the club for failing a drugs test, according to BBC Radio Sheffield.

Kenny tested positive for a banned substance following last season's play-off semi-final clash against Preston.

And the 31-year-old could face a lengthy ban, and could also cause the end of his long stay at the wrong end of Sheffield.

As much as I like to laugh at our neighbours I'm afraid I think the lad's been hard done by. The substance, ephedrine, which he claims was in a bottle of cough medicine, is present in many cold remedies as a decongestant. It is a slight derivative of amphetamine (speed) and has similar properties. These include appetite suppressant and concentration aid. Anecdotal evidence claims that ephidrine is a greater aid to concentration than caffeine. Its most common doping use is by bodybuilders before a workout for the increase in energy levels. However common side effects are an increased heart rate (so much so that all efforts at concentration would be useless), confusion, mania, hallucinations, paranoia, hostlity, agitation and panic. That's before you get on to the other potential medical implications (which can range from mild dizziness to pulmonary edema and collapse). Anyone would have to be mad to take such a drug to improve sporting performance. Sorry but I don't believe Paddy is mad, stupid or naive maybe but not mad. Isn't it more likely that he woke up with a cough or sore throat and decided to take some covonia or something?

haha, 3 serious posts followed by smiggy's "and on that bombshell" comment. Hilarious! Although he's a blade it does sound suspiciously harsh, it did raise an eyebrow when I read it.... or should that be raised a half-chewed eyebrow.

Ephedrine (EPH) is a sympathomimetic amine commonly used as a stimulant, appetite suppressant, concentration aid, decongestant, and to treat hypotension associated with anaesthesia. Ephedrine is similar in structure to the synthetic derivatives amphetamine and methamphetamine. Chemically, it is an alkaloid derived from various plants in the genus Ephedra (family Ephedraceae). It is most usually marketed in the hydrochloride and sulfate forms. [Edited by TheFear]

Folks, just removed one comment and edited another. We rarely do this but we've got to take into account the legalities of calling people cheats etc as nothing has been proved until the investigation results are done. Go easy on us, our hearts couldn't take the strain of legal action! What you THINK and what is FACT at the moment are two different things! Cheers folks.
