Steroids In The NFL

 

With everything that is going on in baseball, its hard not to wonder what is the reality of steroids in the NFL. Some have learned to accept that average or below average talent guys who play special teams or less than stelar roles might be on the juice. Nowadays you hear all the time about stelar college programs being involved with steroids, you hear about high school recruits going from normal kids to physical specimens overnight. After all this is a very physical sport and big, fast and strong is the name of the game. However, some others are preoccupied by the situation. Others that see the game as a true field of dreams. Others that believe the football field, at any level, is where a man is truly measured. Others that believe that the gridiron is the last place remaining in the modern world were the last man standing had to give nothing less than his heart and soul. Heart and hard work are becoming secondary, and as a fan, you cant help but wonder if the soul of the game is going away with them. I once read in a column by Bill Simons that when your team wins a championship, for the next year you go about in life with a special bloom. A lot of people don´t get what football is all about, where for once race and economic background do not count. The day you caught your first pass, the day your dad took you to your first game, the day you went to the stadium and 60,000 people voices became one, second chances, old men crying and kids smiling. The day football stops being about that, neither will I.
