I am not into sports. The closest I have come it is Chicago Bears 1984. And that is because they won the super bowl and mande super bowl shuffle looking great in those tights along with watching Real Sports with Brian Gumbel. But one thing I have realized so many football, basket ball so called stars being brought on on charges from attempted rape, DWI, "jumping from moving vehicle," gun charge. It surprises me that it does not seem to be affecting the owners and their bottom line?
There is is similarity in the charges. Most times these owners try to hide their players are f--king up. Until that accient in New York in the 80s and the testing started. It was down hill from there Gooden etc. They have shown that they have known about sterois usage for years and condoned it. Until they were forced to deal with it.
