Washington trainer Ryan Vermillion on leave due to criminal investigation

Wait so are they saying he was doling out pain meds to the players?
If that is what they are saying does that make the organization’s statement that it had nothing to do with the team not true?
Also is this something Ron or any other coach would have or should have known about?

Re: Washington trainer Ryan Vermillion on leave due to criminal investigation

It doesn't have to be pills. If he was, for example, giving painkilling or other injections to players, would they necessarily challenge his legal standing to do so? As a player I'd be worried about the legality of the drugs themselves, not the legality of his administering them. Though obviously you'd be expecting the team medical staff to do that, not the training team/physio.

And while the implication is that he was passing out drugs, there's nothing stated yet to indicate it was definitely linked to the team. He could have been passing on prescription drugs to outside parties when away from team facilities. Would seem pretty stupid to be doing it on the team campus given the public nature of a major sports franchise and the frequent presence of the press etc.

As to who would/should know, if he was discreet while doing it on campus (i.e. only in his own office with nobody else around) or only did it off campus with no other team employees around, how would you expect the team to be aware? I mean yeah, if he was dealing 1000's of pills to a whole bunch of players you'd expect someone to twig, but if he wasn't doing it there or was so select in who he dealt with, how would it raise suspicion?

Hope you are right and this guy goes quietly away without a ripple to the team. That is a whole lotta “if’s” though.

They did search the facility. Could be just protocol to search all of his spaces, but it could also mean they knew there was stuff there and like you said why in the hell would you have this shit there if it wasn’t involving players?

Guess we will find out. Fingers crossed he is the only bad egg. Well hopefully Snyder is his supplier and he finally has to leave!

How much of a mess this organization really is when your head trainer being investigated by the DEA and your team's local being searched is forgotten in a couple of days because of bigger/sketchier shit ?

Omg when doest it stop ?
Second trainer put in paid leave... But we're still supposed to believe the investigation is unrelated to the team, right ?

Re: Washington trainer Ryan Vermillion on leave due to criminal investigation

The original article I read (unsure of the source) made it sound like he was writing prescriptions but not being licensed in the state he's working in to do so. Made it seem like he was able to write scripts in a different state though. That was what I thought the article implied. I'm not sure how all that works, though.
