And then it worked. Once you get started on something, you can go for hours upon hours.
It would make perfect sense for a young NFL player to use it to keep focus watching film or reading a playbook.
I'm not saying there aren't other affects or that it's morally OK and not cheating. I'm just saying it's absolutely a study aide and would absolutely help NFL players study and watch film.
It helps you focus. It does NOT help you study. Your decision and work ethic help you study. Extra sleep improves focus and I would highly suggest extra sleep before alot of studying but sleep is not a "study aid" either.
We're picking nits at this point as I understand clearly what you're saying.
