  1. Actually I think it’s time to back away from the steriod/HGH and other prohibitions. There are just too many variations of cocktails to keep banning.

    The arguments for keeping the ban tend to center around the damage done to the player. As if a 330 pound 24 year old isn’t damaging enough.

    The ability to get various steriod compounds, testosterone, HGH, and various other goodies are just too available. For many an athlete the choice of upping the case of heart attack by 1% while increasing chance of playing in the NFL by 10% just isn’t a hard choice.

    The question then becomes should it be rationed by team doctors or non team ones.

    Indeed, one could make the argument that supervised use would be far safer than the current situation.

    However, I don’t see any of the leagues taking that route.
