But I would not be surprised if the amount of players who use/have used in the NFL dwarfs anything we've read about in MLB.

IMO Bowe is just lazy.
Show some more commitment in the weight room and you won't need to go on the juice, Dwayne!!!
Do you not remember David Boston? In my opinion he was the one who started this whole steroids mess in the NFL like 8 years ago. Something about getting up to 250 lbs and still running a 4.4 40 yard dash over the course of like a season and a half

Maybe Boston broke the seal for skill players regarding anabolics, but a percentage of lineman and LBs have been using IMO for decades.

Like I said, it's not as big a deal in football because taking 'roids without having position skills won't make you a pro football player. Same deal in baseball, if you can't hit a curveball, no steroid will teach you how to do it.

I just think it puts pressure on clean players to do something because they feel they're at a competitive disadvantage playing against dirty players.

He was banned for four games for using a weight loss supplement that contained a diuretic.

As I've pointed out a thousand times they're banned because they can lead to a player having heart palpitations and being dehydrated and they've actually contributed to deaths in other athletes.

This isn't a "performance enhancer" since all it would do is help lower his weight. This is a "banned substance". There's a monumental difference between what Bowe has taken and what Merriman did.

Everyone knows you are just laying groundwork to protect Peppers.

Yeah, because the NFL has such a bias towards the Minnesota Vikings. :/

He's not even appealing it, if he did he might not get suspended either.

Trade him to Minnesota. That state allows steroid use.

If you can't see the difference between steroids and diuretics then you are beyond help.

One is performance enhancing and that's why it's banned, the other has caused deaths and severe dehydration, that's why it's banned.

A little touchy, eh? Hit a little too close to home with the Peppers connection? :D Given that I said absolutely nothing about the drugs, I don't think THAT is the reason I'm beyond help. There are plenty of others.

aren't the diuretics masking agents, and that's why they're banned
