    He's either the author or someone getting paid by the author. Why else would he keep bringing the book and the publisher up? He's trying to sell copies.

    he's doing a bad job of it too because if* one wanted to read his shitty book, now they wouldn't have to as he has pretty much quoted the entire thing

    and what about all the other teams before they outlawed them in the league? Should we give back the Jets SB win too? It is what it is. Bad precedent to go down that road folks. It was in the game long before the 70's

    And for the record i quoted 4-6 pages out of 270, that is the whole book now? You guys should drop a few bucks and read it. It gathers all stories and interviews.

    it exploded in the 70s w/ the steelers leading the way, should we take away those SBs?

    Steroids were not banned in the NFL until 1983.

    they didn't ban human growth hormones until recently so it was ok to use until they were banned?

    If substances were not banned by the sport then it's kind of silly to argue that the players and or teams were knowingly cheating or should forfeit wins or championships. Especially back then.

    Hell, in baseball they had bowls of greenies in the clubhouse on the way out to field back in the day.

    The concept of PEDs back then was not as obvious as an issue as it it today.

    Yep. Pharmacology is part of efficient training.

    It's still not an obvious issue, because no one take the time to understand how it really works.

    Look at Bonds, look at McGuire.

    One guy melted one guy didn't.

    It's just training.


    Look, If one guy has the drive to spend umpteen hours in the gym, and one guy wants to party, that's their choice.

    Adopting a pharmaceutical aspect to said training absent contraindications, is no different.

    Sooo... whatever happened to the equipment guy? Did he lawyer up? Nice all expense paid vacation to Tahiti with an open ended return date? Beamed up to Alpha Centauri perhaps?

    Is the NFL just letting this story die a slow death?

    I feel like the media won't let that happen no matter how long they want to wait.

    There's always the next blue & gold dress...

    The media has the attention span of a bumblebee.

    the pain came, it happened about a month ago watching NE win their 4th SB. whatever happens from this other nonsense is meaningless. It won't take away their trophies and give them to the Jets so I don't care.

    YOU wouldn't let her? Because of her foul language? Maybe that's why you're in charge of the McNuggets and not selecting supermodels. Dunce.

    NCAA tournament? The one your cheating Orangemen won't be playing in? Arguably worse than Spygate. I can't believe you follow a team that systematically cheats.

    I don't care about your garbage response. You love cheaters.

    you must be proud to be in the company of the Orangemen..

    here's something for you to digest..
    the 'other teams cheat' argument will never absolve the Patriots of cheating.
    it only ensures the Patriots name to come up as a measuring stick of cheating whenever a new scandal arises.
    they are forever synonymous with cheating.. kind of like Leaf's name thrown around when talking draft busts..
