Cote comments on painkillers

Former Flyer and enforcer, Riley Cote, spoke out against painkillers on Facebook this morning. For those of you who do not have an account or access to the site, here is his quote:

Someone needs to step in and speak up about these very preventable deaths. This absolutely crazy. These PILLS (painkillers) are mass produced, way over prescribed and are flooding the black market with pharmaceutically made, very highly addictive drugs. This is a growing epidemic all across North america. We need some action ASAP otherwise there will be plenty more of these sad stories.

We have a post that will run this morning where we urge other former players to speak up as well.

    For once, someone who’s dead on.

    For once, an athlete who’s a lot more self aware than just “I must be depressed because I hate to fight.”

    Wish there were more of these guys, past and present, who could take a stand like it.
