Vikings support Michael Floyd’s kombucha tea defense

When it comes to his effort to avoid jail for violating the terms of his house arrest, Vikings receiver Michael Floyd has an ally: His employer.

According to Brian Murphy of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Vikings C.O.O. Kevin Warren sent a letter to the presiding judge supporting Floyd’s claim that he didn’t know kombucha tea contains alcohol.

“I am writing to request Mr. Floyd not have his court mandated requirements negatively impacted since he did not know the kombucha he ingested contained alcohol,” Warren wrote in the letter dated June 21.

In a sworn affidavit, Floyd said the team encourages players to drink the tea for health reasons, and that it is “on tap” at the team’s training facility. (That may not be the best choice of words.) Floyd also hired a forensic pathologist to explain that, because Floyd purchased a case of kombucha tea without refrigerating it, additional fermentation occurred, elevating its alcohol content.

Perhaps most importantly for Floyd’s case, the forensic pathologist concluded that, based on Floyd’s explanation regarding the amount of kombucha tea he ingested before failing multiple home alcohol tests, the time frame during which he drank it, and the blood-alcohol concentration that was measured, the numbers are “achievable and consistent” from consuming kombucha tea “to a reasonable degree of medical and scientific certainty.”

The question now becomes whether prosecutors have hired an expert of their own to dispute the conclusions from Floyd’s expert, or whether prosecutors will simply say, “It doesn’t matter. He was prohibited from consuming alcohol.” Ultimately, the question will be whether the judge is motivated by any of this to give Floyd a pass or to say, “It doesn’t matter. He was prohibited from consuming alcohol.”

    Costco was serving up samples of kombucha tea just the other day. Boy, was it bad tasting! I’m certain additional fermentation had happened to the shot I sampled.

    Kombucha tea certainly makes the after-church socials more interesting.

    Just when you think you’ve heard every last lame excuse for an NFL player getting in trouble, along comes Michael Floyd with the most original one yet.
    I think the NFL needs to create an award to be handed out at season’s end for the guy who comes up with the biggest whopper when he gets in trouble.
    In fact, they should name it the Biggest Whopper Award.
    I hereby nominate Michael Floyd to be considered for this award.
    But he’s no shoo-in because we still haven’t heard from Letroy Guion, who is already suspended for the first four games of the season, just as he was last year, and got arrested in Hawaii for DUI.
    Guion should be nominated for the Dope Hall Of Fame. He not only does it, he is it.

  8. vikingarsk says: Jun 24, 2017 3:39 PM

    A reasonable judicial officer would look at the fact that he was a few days short of completing the program, and that the substance ingested was not a common form of alcohol. A very reasonable judicial officer might extend the probationary period an additional 30 days to see if there were any more violations. If he’s clean, then off he goes.

  9. In Teddy We Trust says: Jun 24, 2017 3:41 PM

    That sounds so crazy it has to be true.

  10. theemployer says: Jun 24, 2017 3:45 PM

    I believe this.

    It makes zero sense for any organization in any industry to step up with this type defense/explanation on an employee that’s at best in the middle 60% of the 20-60-20 rule.

  13. blowfishes says: Jun 24, 2017 4:23 PM

    If this is a beverage that the organisation recommends to their players, then as much as it’s down to the individual to know what he/she puts in their body, surely the team would have put a bloody huge sign above the tap stating that it contains alcohol.

  14. i, flounder says: Jun 24, 2017 4:23 PM

    same thing happened to me.

  15. filthymcnasty3 says: Jun 24, 2017 4:24 PM

    The rest of us? Not so much.

  16. fwippel says: Jun 24, 2017 4:24 PM

    When this tea is sold, is it sold as an alcoholic beverage? If not, Floyd has a case. If so, he’s toast.

  17. jjsooner says: Jun 24, 2017 4:31 PM

    The player’s defense is logical. I would think that worst case, he gets one more month tacked on to eliminate doubt that he’s clean. If I hadn’t been drinking and still failed an alcohol test, I’d be trying to find out why. The reason is legit if you do a little research.

  18. mnrasslinggovjesse says: Jun 24, 2017 4:34 PM

    He’s also claiming he was unaware that Mini was a sinking ship when he agreed to sign.

  19. eramming says: Jun 24, 2017 4:37 PM

    Tom Brady set the precedence for this type of litigation. This thing is going to get drug out for months in court. I hope he gets a tough judge who can see through his bull and throw the book at him because he has a serious problem and this may be his only way to recognize it.

  20. laserw says: Jun 24, 2017 4:40 PM

    Since the Vikings were the party that caused this dirtbag to offend, I think all of their 2018 draft choices should be stripped and the head coach should be fired.

    This story doesn’t pass the smell test.

    We need to start pinning the ears of the offending teams to a board before we lop them off.

    Next we should go after the AFC North because they are the worst offenders of any rules in the NFL.

    Floyd is responsible for whatever he puts into his body. There’s no excuse for not checking the ingredients of everything he’s about to drink.

    His BAC was .05. By the time you get there, you would notice you’re getting a buzz.

  26. stexan says: Jun 24, 2017 5:18 PM

    Don’t know if the alcohol in his system came from this (it could have), but if the Vikings actually provide this stuff and encourage people to drink it they need to have their collective heads examined. Any supposed health benefits are a total scam – like Brady’s concussion water – and there have been plenty of problems associated with it. Liver disease seems to be the most common.

  27. 6250claimer says: Jun 24, 2017 5:19 PM

    The “I didn’t know, therefore I’m innocent” defense doesn’t work when a player consumes a supplement that has something that later turns out to be banned, and pops up in a random drug test. The precedent has already been set there. How is this case any different?

    It’s also clear as a bell to anyone with an IQ above room temperature that Floyd has both a drinking problem, and an attitude-towards-it problem. Dude needs help, not a break because he can afford fancy lawyers and some silly “forensic expert”.

  35. stellarperformance says: Jun 24, 2017 5:47 PM

    The manufacturer of High Country Kombucha clarified:

    “No, no,” Rothbauer said, laughing. “I don’t know if you’ve tasted kombucha, but it’s not something that you drink bottle after bottle. You know, this is something that’s fermented. It would be like trying to drink vinegar bottle after bottle. And you would have to drink eight bottles (of kombucha) just to get the buzz of one beer.”

    At 220 lbs, he would have to drink 32 bottles of this stuff to register .055.

    At 5:30 in the morning?

    He was trying to catch a buzz. He got caught. He’s got a problem. So does everyone trying to defend him.

    ———————————————————-
    WRONG!!!
    It was the NFL and Roger Goodell that dragged the deflated football nonsense out in court.

    • Ignore science and claim that someone let air out of footballs even though there are videos online where footballs can be seen deflating when put into refrigerators. The PSI numbers then go back up after the footballs are removed from the refrigerators. Only small minded people are able to understand the concept of footballs deflating without air being removed. It’s 7th grade science.

    • Manipulate the system by picking a court in NY that you think will help you railroad Tom Brady. Lose because federal judge Richard M. Berman is competent.

    • Double down on stupid and appeal the loss. Get two lazy judges that were apparently influenced by media headlines to rule in your favor.

    • Cringe after Chief Judge Robert A. Katzmann actually understands the facts and issues a dissenting opinion that slams your case.Triple down on stupid and reinstate the suspension. Publically gloat on the eve of the 2016 draft because you actually won 2 to 1.

    • 2 judges also ruled against the NFL. One them was a Chief justice. Science also continues to rule against the NFL and will do so until the end of time.

    • Then hide the PSI information that was collected during the 2015 NFL season so that gullible dupes will continue to believe the “deflated football” nonsense that was fed to them.

  38. harrisonhits2 says: Jun 24, 2017 5:54 PM

    So at a time when sports nutrition is incredibly advanced, and the league is incredibly picky about what substances are approved and what are not, the Vikings have a drink with alcohol content on tap?

    The stench of their story can be smelled half a country away from there.

  39. finnymcphin says: Jun 24, 2017 6:06 PM

    As a defense it may or may not work but it definitely has a great chance of making it into a future edition of Fact or Crap.

  40. descendency says: Jun 24, 2017 6:10 PM

    In order to reach the level of intoxication that Mr Floyd had, he would have had to drink 1 of these every 3 minutes for a few hours.

    I’ll just let you make your mind up if he did that or not.

  41. intrafinesse says: Jun 24, 2017 6:13 PM

    Kambucha is 0.5% alcohol. Wouldn’t that be gone from your body in 15 minutes?

    Does he drink gallons of the stuff, every hour on the hour?

    ======================
    This product was removed from some stores years ago because it contains alcohol and wasn’t within their policy to sell alcoholic beverages. So stores that sell it have to know that it contains alcohol.

  43. buzzlightner says: Jun 24, 2017 6:21 PM

    Well lets see.. guys het snagged often for claiming the supplement they used was “tainted”. So even if this works in court he still has to get passed goodell… kambucha tea is fermented, enough said. The only argument this can bring is he is uneducated and does know what fermented means

  44. fatcamper says: Jun 24, 2017 6:32 PM

    As a former prosecutor, I’d love to punt the guy to jail if he brought a weak defense like this into the courtroom.

  45. TheVikingsHaveHowManySBTrophys? says: Jun 24, 2017 6:39 PM

    I bought a bottle a few weeks ago. I tried the “flavored” kind. It tastes like cr-p but you immediately know it’s a fermented beverage the moment it hits your tongue.

    As much as I despise the Vikings, if the tests are consistent with the very low level of alcohol in the product, it would be criminal to suspend the dude. But in a court of law it’s black and white. They would find the man guilty regardless if its this disgusting beverage, mouth wash, or Jack Daniels.

    There’s alcohol in a lot of items we consume.
    Perhaps the NFL needs to rethink the wording of the rule.

  46. grrragnar says: Jun 24, 2017 6:47 PM

    For the Viking staff themselves, to say they were providing the tea to the team, and for you guys to say it is a lie, demands the proof that the whole team will have to deny it.

    That is not going to happen and you people are crazy to imagine it. You idiots.

  47. grrragnar says: Jun 24, 2017 7:03 PM

    Hey fatcamper, re-read the details. The Vikings would not stick their necks out like this if it were not true and The Wilfs, Spielman and Zimmer would NOT allow the release this kind of statement otherwise.

  48. grrragnar says: Jun 24, 2017 7:06 PM

    Buzzlightner, football players can be kinda dumb and when their own team is encouraging the ingestion of said substance, it totally changes the conversation in terms of guilt.

    But those things are important

    “Anything you say can and will be used against you, in court of law”

    The NFL is even less forgiving

  54. finchy74 says: Jun 24, 2017 7:55 PM

    At least according to our FBI director last summer, you can do whatever you want as long as there’s “no intent”, so Floyd should be fine.

  55. bkostela says: Jun 24, 2017 8:01 PM

    In a sworn affidavit, Floyd said the team encourages players to drink the tea for health reasons, and that it is “on tap” at the team’s training facility. (That may not be the best choice of words.)
    _______________________________

    Many alternative medicine health food establishments have kombucha on tap. Just like movie theaters have soda on tap. I don’t understand why this is a bad choice of words.

    The problem with Floyd’s statement is that it’s a lie. He would have to drink a few gallons of the tea in order to register the BAC his test showed. Anyone that has drank it would know how awful it tastes (it is loaded with live cultures), and that a 12 ounce glass or two is plenty for one person. Anything more and you’d likely be vomiting.

  56. harrisonhits2 says: Jun 24, 2017 8:12 PM

    “if the tests are consistent with the very low level of alcohol in the product, it would be criminal to suspend the dude.”

    Its not the league he has to worry about, its the court deciding he violated probation and putting him in jail.

  57. GenXJ says: Jun 24, 2017 8:12 PM

    The Vikings have a long history of helping their players avoid accountability; the Whizanator, they challenged a couple of other blood tests on their fat defensive lineman back in 2009 or so and now this.

    Michael Floyd needs real help, not an enabling cover up from the team. Just like when Peterson was exposed for child abuse, the Vikings will look the other way if they think it will help them win a single game. This stuff has a way of backfiring on you as evidenced by their 56 year history of never winning a Superbowl.

  60. hawkwind8 says: Jun 24, 2017 9:53 PM

  62. veloman75 says: Jun 24, 2017 10:01 PM

    Simple solution. The judge should put a case of kombucha tea outside in the sun for a week. If Floyd can drink the whole case in one sitting he is innocent. If not, guilty.

    My God – this is so silly

    Kombucha (which is actually a health drink to support healthy digestion – tastes a bit vinegary though it grows on you) does technically have some alcohol

    But so does Apple Cider if it’s left out in the garage for a few weeks

    So is Apple Cider now on the banned list?

    You can’t even get drunk on Kombucha

    Sure, maybe if you drank a gallon in a minute. But you’d be getting just as light headed if you drank a gallon of water in a minute

    Goodell lost his mind a LONG time ago and just caters to the jealous fans of the owners he’s trying to curry favor with in order to draw attention away from his awful record on Domestic Violence and how corrupt he was in FrameGate

    I heard in Green Bay they have gravy “on tap” at the team’s training facility.

  75. gbfanforever says: Jun 25, 2017 10:25 AM

    There is a simple and obvious reason why the tea explanation is nonsense. Go to an online blood alcohol content calculator and put in floyds body weight and the alcohol content of this tea to calculate how much of the tea and how fast he would have to drink it to blow a 0.05. It amounts to somewhere around 20 12oz cans in an hour. As any friend or family member of someone with a serious drinking problem can attest to, alcoholics know exactly what has and does not have alcohol in it. Anything that has the smallest amount of alcohol in they will guzzle in a moment of weakness. The Vikings, by going along with this nonsense are enabling him.

  76. h0metownzero says: Jun 25, 2017 10:29 AM

    Bad teams like the Vikings seem to have more than their fair share of these kinds of problems.

  77. hyperalgesia says: Jun 25, 2017 10:35 AM

    He wasn’t even legally too drunk to DRIVE. How stupid is this case. Oh but the weenies will say ‘but technically he was not allowed to consume ANY alcohol due to sed circumstances into which he got himself.’

    I agree with the mouthwash comment above. Or…
    Kombucha is fine but scope is quicker.

  78. bigbabysaywah says: Jun 25, 2017 11:10 AM

    As a Viking fan and Kombucher brewer ( I wonder how many of those there are), this is the worst defense ever. Kombucha has far less alcohol than non alcoholic beer, there can be additional fermentation but the change would be almost impossible to notice. There is just no way this story is true.

    But on the other hand it does have health benefits!

    People have registered and purchased Packer stock certificates from all 50 states, while Lambeau Field has been visited by fans from over 60 countries throughout the world.
    I honestly believe that this refutes your statement.
    But, by all means, please remain an angry and bitter hater.

    “Oh but the weenies will say ‘but technically he was not allowed to consume ANY alcohol due to sed circumstances into which he got himself.’”

    Did you not watch the video of Floyd as he was found and got arrested? Do you not know how addiction works?

    Its a miracle he didn’t hurt or kill anyone. As others have said the amount of this tea he’d have to drink to register .05 is huge. Much more likely he snuck a couple shots of something else and used the tea to hide it.

    His orders were “zero” booze not try to work around it and come up with lies. He has proved he still has a problem. He never has lived up to expectations out of college.

    FACT:
    Tom Brady FOUND GUILTY by the commissioner and received 4 game suspension.
    FACT : He did not fight OR appeal that suspension
    FACT: GUILTY
    purvey that
    ________________________________
    Here is the ONLY proven fact: The NFL admitted in Federal court they had no evidence against Tom. NONE! The only guilty party was Mother Nature!!

    I’m enjoy the Packer troll comments while I can….after their 2-3 or 2-4 start to the season they will disappear like last year…I will almost miss them….

    Only a loser would be satisfied with a good start to the season.

    Are you a loser?

  85. dlb1982 says: Jun 25, 2017 1:07 PM

    This wasn’t for the NFL. A court of Law was who ordered him not to drink and he not only drank he drank enough to be over the limit. For a guy his size that would be probably 18 or more beers worth of tea. Because of the low alcoholic content. Are you still buying he didnt know he was getting drunk and it was an accident? If so I have some things I would like to sale you. SMH

    I think Green Bay made it to the NFC Championship Game while it was the Vikings who “disappeared” last year, missing the playoffs after a 5-0 start.

    “I’m enjoy the Packer troll comments while I can….after their 2-3 or 2-4 start to the season they will disappear like last year”

    Well, I’m enjoy the Vikings epic collapse. You do realize the Packers went all the way to the NFC championship game. How you weave that into “disappear like last year” can only be explained by the MN public school system.

    Here is a revised version of your nonsense:

    As it has been explained to you before, it’s the little things. They all add up. The Packers have owned the Vikings this decade to the tune of an .800 winning percentage. Who knows how these little things contribute, but something is working. Maybe the Vikings should stop encouraging their players and coaches to partake in alcoholic beverages so often. They should start there. If they ever start winning as consistently as the Packers, maybe you will have the chance to brag with football-related achievements instead of your over-reliance on childish insults and putdowns. Either way, I don’t think you’ll enjoy the success our team has provided us in your lifetime. I’d throw out insults every opportunity I had too, if I were as desperate as you.

    Of course the Vikings support Floyd. They gave Adrian Peterson more money for beating a four year old.

    I think you’re overstating things. There were only 2 replies to your post, and they weren’t defensive; they just pointed out how absurd your comment was.

    The only time a viking fan could get under my skin is if their team constantly beat my team. Hasn’t happened yet, so I laugh at the jealous insults that they throw at us. Those type of insults just show the world how bitter and angry they are because they’re always getting slapped around.

  94. fmc651 says: Jun 25, 2017 5:53 PM

    That is absurd, just cut Floyd and get it over with. I never wanted the Vikings to sign him in the first place.

    As a Packer fan? Hardly.

    I am a reactive poster. I never said I am “only” a reactive poster, so we can save ourselves the predictable whining from “cheesey.” You will find me most often reacting and posting to the negative commentary of Packer-haters. A jealous bunch indeed.

    No, I am anything but desperate. Desperation is a trait for losers.

    The manufacturer of High Country Kombucha clarified:

    Rothbauer said, laughing. “I don’t know if you’ve tasted kombucha, but it’s not something that you drink bottle after bottle. You know, this is something that’s fermented. It would be like trying to drink vinegar bottle after bottle.”

    What a ringing endorsement for your product, it’s like vinegar.

    So now he is qualifying his lie so that I don’t prove he is lying without me even having to lift a finger anymore. I love it. And his qualification is as full of himself as when he says other fans bases love Packer fans as much as Packer fans love themselves.

    Who’s the liar cheesey? You have me archived…..find it……bring it up where I said I “only” and “exclusively” post reactively.

    While you’re at it, bring it up where I said anything similar to other fanbases loving Packer fans.

    Fake News. Again.

    I am a Vikings fan that is disappointed by the reaction made by the Vikings. I believe the Vikings should cut their losses and get rid of Floyd now. Instead they play the part of enablers. I saw a headline that the Vikings encourage Floyd to drink the stuff all the while noting that it ferments in room temps. How stupid does that sound. You can’t have it both ways. The Vikings made a mistake here.
