Discussion in 'UFC Discussion' started by dickcheney, Jan 5, 2013.
Hey, I was agreeing with you. People hear hoof beats and think zebras, not horses.
i think it was the sudden nature that led to all the little gossippers on this site to just have field day
I know internet libel is a crime in many states. I wonder how/if this law applies to discussion forums such as this. Any legal experts here?
I didn't expect adderall to be goldie's problem. But Adderall is a schedule II drug, and highly addictive. It's a stimulent, and would enhance anyone's concentration, not just those with adhd. I don't think the rumors are too far fetched, but I wouldnt believe them without a valid source.
What does the time of the episode have to do with anything? Is Goldberg his only good friend? Rogan is a comedian, most of the people he knows does drugs. It could be anyone.
sorry, i'm on edge from all the adderrall
It's alright. I can see how if taken out of context it could sound sarcastic.
People like tearing down other people. Rumors suck
Funny how people will believe the sensational news story, provided by a "source", over a basic story straight from the horses mouth.
It's like you guys WANT him to be screwed up on drugs so that you can use that as an excuse to bash him further
I think it was easy to assume that the reason Goldberg always stared sooo deeply into Rogan's eyes on occasion was due to some amphetamine use
Rumors are easy to start and impossible to trace once they take root.
He should just have clarified his reason from the start, or at least make something up that people would buy.
It is pointless not to when you have so much media attention. If he doesn't tell his reasons, then people will eventually make up their own reasons.
Well, it's obviously a medication issue at this point. The medication made it impossible for him to work. That means a mental or behavioral side effect so it could be anything from Goldie having to piss every 10 minutes to running crazy shirtless around Dana's interviews... or both. It sounds like it was something that increased since October to a certain point where in directly impacted his ability to perform.
Dana can't talk about it and neither can anyone else but his physician with has been vague. This probably means Goldie had to take FMLA leave to protect his job which needs consent of his physician. Drug issues are covered by HIPPA. If a coworker or boss talks about the reason for leave and it causes "issues" for the employability of the person taking leave there can be mega lawsuits.
Where does that leave us? Well, back at square one.... pure speculation.
So.. Sounds like Goldie probably started taking Adderall for part of a treatment for respiratory issues, it caused him to piss every 10 min, then the use got out of hand and you saw odd behaviors and judgement, Goldie needed treatment or he'd get fired, and with the laws in place now nobody can talk about it.
He has missed several events in the past. Off the top of my head the one i remember was ufc 56.
these are not vitamins folks. same thing happens when humans take meth, whether prescribed or not
By far the best poster on this site. I seriously hope you were joking.
Why the hell would Goldie have started taking that? We use it as a study aid before exams...$hit fv<ks you up.
what is odd is that he wouldn't just come out and discuss it.
an 'upper respiratory' issue and/or complications from it, is hardly something that needs to be hidden, even if simply out of a desire for privacy. given that he knows of the rumours, why not just talk more about it and shut everyone up?
in any case, as much as I think he and Rogan are annoying as heck, but good for the sport's growth, I obv hope he makes a full recovery. anyone who wishes ill on someone else (without a REALLY good reason lol) is a douche.
The facts show that he's out for medical reasons not drugs. Why is it so hard for some people to believe the evidence over rumours and vage off handed comments.
I'm telling you guys right now, Goldie was on some type of stimulant. I always used to think he was just coked up cause of all the tweeky shit that he does with his face while he's talking. Regardless, I hope he recovers and comes back cuz I love the shit he says.
This is how rumours start a guy who knows nothing about someone says something stupid. Then when the something stupid makes its way into stupid ears you have a rumour. Don't be stupid!
