WWWHHAAAAT? you're not serious!
As a heart attack. Isn't Tommy John sugery performance enhancing? You could make the argument it is.
I have the pleasure of calling a six time all pro NFL player a friend and he told me point blank how prevelent steriods were and still are in the NFL. When I asked him why he used his answer was, "If you want to keep your job you get on the wagon."
If you think PED's are not being abused at all levels of every sport in the world you believe in Unicorns. At least MLB has almost true random testing. The NFL testing is a joke. Why you think all these players look like WWE superstars?
Baseball writers are now choosing to punish players because of alledged steriod abuse. It's humorous to listen to the clown writers and ex player color telecast specialists act like only a few baseball players used. They all knew what was going on from the beginning. Why is baseball held to a higher standard than the NFL?
No one drinks in the NHL and no one smokes dope in the NBA right? Every single sport has produced bigger better athletes the last 60 years and modern chemestry has had a huge hand in it.
Ego and money. You will never stop it and if you do no one will pay to see, squirts play ball, or skate, or dribble and run. We want to see athletes run like Bolt and swim like Phelps, watch the Williams sisters play tennis. Armstrong on the bike. That is why I "accept it"
Tell me, was it not amazing to watch Bonds turn on just about every inside fastball for three years and hit it a mile? PEDS or not Barry was bad news for MLB pitchers. And yes you can take it to the bank a lot of those pitchers were using too.
I know he's a jerk but Canseco's book was mostly true. That is exactly why MLB has gone out of it's way to shut him up. But as usual in this world we now live in, the truth is too unnerving so we will pretend it was a small percentage of abusers. Just let your mind wander back to the mid seventys to the present and look at your favorite team, every single team in the league had users. I wasn't looking at Dykstra's tobacco stained shirts.. I was trying to figure out why he went from skinny to bursting out of them in one season. The amazing transformation of rail thin Ricky Henderson, and Sosa. Incavilia, Dalton. NFL dudes starting showing up in MLB. As time progressed more and more players were "getting on the wagon"
I suspect Rose was using PEDS late in his playing career as well, Twenty four years in the league and like Bonds improving as he aged beyond what seemed normal. Plus he was caught red handed in the greenie scandal.......amphetimines to dianabol is not a real stretch.
