Giants' Golden Tate loses appeal, will sit first four games of season

Giants' Golden Tate loses appeal, will sit first four games of season Golden Tate fought the law and the law won. On Tuesday, the NFL denied the Giants wide receiver’s appeal, per a press release. Tate was hit with a four-game ban for violating the league’s Performance Enhancing Substance policy in late July. Soon after, Tate pushed back and denied any wrongdoing. “This past April, during the off-season, my wife and I decided to see a specialist for fertility planning,” Tate said in a statement. “I started the treatment prescribed to me and just days later I discovered it contained an ingredient that is on the league’s banned substance list.

Clomiphene (brand name Clomid) is not FDA-approved for men. It is approved for female infertility due to ovulatory disorder, and it’s classified in the NFL’s and NFL Players Association’s collectively-bargained policy on performance-enhancing substances as an “anti-estrogenic agent.”

Doctors, however, still often prescribe it to men to improve sperm count and sperm motility, or movement capability. Tate said Wednesday he was taking it “to try to have another kid.”

Clomiphene is on the List of Prohibited Substances, though, classified as a “stimulant or anabolic agent.” He would have received a two-game suspension for testing positive for a diuretic or masking agent. Instead, he received a four-game ban for the stimulant in his system.

Tate, 31, blamed the doctor he claims prescribed the fertility treatment to him. He said “the doctor said it was not a banned substance” and had told Tate he’d treated other NFL players the same way before.

But Tate was drug-tested, and between taking the drug test and receiving the results, he said: “I was out to dinner one night with a guy who worked for me, and we started talking about another player who was getting suspended for something completely different, and kind of a light went off in my head, ‘Let me just call the doctor just to make sure, just to make myself feel better.’ I asked him what the active ingredient was, and we looked it up right then and there, and sure enough it wasn’t a banned substance.”

Boy thrown from London's Tate Modern is 'stable'

Boy thrown from London's Tate Modern is 'stable' A six-year-old boy thrown from a tenth-floor viewing platform at London's Tate Modern gallery is no longer in a life-threatening condition, police said Monday. He is "no longer in a life-threatening situation", a police spokesman said on Monday. "He is in a critical but stable condition in hospital. "Officers continue to work hard to establish the circumstances of yesterday's incident." Witnesses who were on the viewing platform at the time said they heard a woman screaming "Where's my son, where's my son?" BBC journalist Olga Malchevska said the woman was shouting and "crying desperately".

Tate, however, easily could have checked with the Giants’ medical and training staff before beginning treatment or consulted with the Players’ Association, and he would have been told it was a banned substance.

He also could have applied for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (T.U.E.) and received permission from an independent administrator and medical adviser to undergo the treatment with the understanding it was for approved medical reasons. That would have made his positive test for Clomiphene a non-issue.

Tate should know. He admitted he has applied for T.U.E’s in the past. This time, for some reason, he didn’t. So why didn’t he go to the league or a team doctor?

“I think ultimately just because the doctor had said, ‘no, it’s not a banned substance, and I have prescribed it to other NFL guys,’” Tate said. “If the doctor says, ‘I’m not sure, I 100% would have looked into it. But (if) the doctor (had) never said he’d given it to any NFL players, I 1,000% would have looked into it. I’ve gone through the T.U.E. process for a couple medicines, and I completely understand it. That’s just an honest answer.”

Giants receiver Golden Tate ’s appeal of a four-game suspension for violating the NFL ’s performance-enhancing drugs policy was denied , as announced Tate made his in-person plea to an arbitrator in New York City after last Tuesday’s practice.

Tate said he’s accepted that “ultimately I’m responsible for what’s put in my body.” He said the toughest part is “I’m letting down a lot of people: my family, the guys in the locker room, the people in the organization that brought me here.”

He also acknowledged that it would be “a slippery slope” for the NFL to have anything other than a zero-tolerance policy for this kind of positive test.

“If you let my situation slide then you have a number of other guys that would probably try to say the same thing and it could open up a can of worms,” Tate said.

Tate and his wife also have two young children already, including his son, Golden Tate IV, who was born in late February. So Tate was asked to explain why he would need a fertility drug.

“I mean, that’s pretty personal. Very, very personal,” he said. “So I mean, I don’t want to get into it.”

Tate lamented that he had hoped “the NFL would be understanding,” but that’s a mischaracterization of the process, because his appeal of the suspension last week was heard by a third-party arbitrator not affiliated with the league or NFLPA.

NFL denies Tate 's appeal , suspension still stands. On Tuesday, the New York Giants announced that wide receiver Golden Tate had lost his appeal , and would indeed be suspended for the first four games of the 2019 season for violating the league 's performance enhancing substances policy.

New York Giants wide receiver Golden Tate lost the appeal of his four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Tate will be eligible to return to the Giants on Sept. 30, one day after the club's Week 4 game against the Washington Redskins. Tate previously indicated.

Tate did not appreciate being asked how he could explain this suspension in the context of his 2013 comment about then-Seattle Seahawk teammates Walter Thurmond and Brandon Browner. At the time, Tate called the cornerbacks “selfish” on ESPN radio for being suspended for marijuana use.

They violated a different policy, so Tate thinks the comparison was unfair.

“Do you know what they got suspended for?” Tate said. “I think that’s a completely different situation than me taking a substance to try to have another kid… It hasn’t been asked of me (by teammates), so I haven’t had to address it. I’ll think about it, though.”

Tate said there is “no doubt” this suspension will fuel him once he returns in Week 5. He will be able to participate in the remaining preseason games and practices, but he won’t be allowed to contact or be around the team for the first four weeks of the regular season.

Tate’s suspension could cost him up to $1.2 million for the first four weeks he’s out, per former agent Joel Corry, including base salary and bonuses. And the full guarantee on his $7.975 million 2020 base salary also voids.

Boomer Esiason believes Odell Beckham faked injury, quit on Giants.
Odell Beckham Jr missed the final four games of the season with the New York Giants last year with what was described as a quad injury, and there was a lot of confusion over the exact extent of the ailment and how long it would keep him out. Boomer Esiason has one theory about why that was. Esiason, a former NFL quarterback turned CBS analyst and radio host, believes Beckham was faking or embellishing the injury so he had an excuse to not play. He told Ryan Dunleavy of NJ Advance Media that Beckham quit on the Giants. “Odell took himself off the field last year for four games after making $19 million,” Esiason said. “That takes a lot of chestnuts.
