  • Mexico victim of bad chicken



    Five Mexican players have been booted out of the Gold Cup for testing positive for Clenbuterol.


    Clenbuterol is a drug that eases the symptoms of chronic breathing disorders. Oh, and it can also drop body fat quickly. Obviously the Mexican players weren't interested in it for that totally random side effect though.

    As is typical in these cases the players and team are claiming that this drug was ingested by accident -- in this particular case it was due to the consumption of "bad chicken."

    Bad. Chicken.

    The players that ate the bad chicken? Francisco Javier Rodriguez, Antonio "Sinha" Naelson, Christian Bermudez, Edgar Duenas, and Ochoa.

    All are facing a one year suspension and have seen their last action of this Gold Cup. The Mexicans can bring up the three taxi squad members to replace them, but will finish the tournament with 21 players rather than 23.
