ESPN's Mike Fish just released some great information today. As you may know, I am fully interested in all facets and aspects of any story that involves steroids or performance-enhancing drugs of any kind in sports. I have crammed my brain with both of Jose Canseco's books, I am currently reading Bill Romanowski's auto-biography (Adam Schefter is a contributing author in Romo's book also, coincidence?). Let's bring it back, here's the opening to Fish's article on Dr. Anthony Galea and the steroid scandal:
While executing a search warrant at the Toronto office of Dr. Anthony Galea last October, Canadian authorities carted off a significant amount of homeopathic medicines, almost 800 ampoules of substances with Russian labels and a small amount of human growth hormone, as well as evidence offering yet another connection to his treatment of elite athletes, specifically pro football players.
According to court documents ESPN obtained Monday, the lengthy list of items authorities seized includes an "NFL file folder," "Professional Players Journal" and "daytimer with football dates." Records indicate they also seized a "CFL [Canadian Football League] folder" from the office of Galea, former team physician to the Toronto Argonauts.
It's obviously not breaking news that NFL players used/use steroids and performance enhancing drugs, but having more information leaked and more players that decided to take that road as opposed to sticking to their guns and not joining the rest of the pack is always amusing to me. I have not changed my opinion that I don't care who has and has not used steroids or PED's, I just have the curiosity to know who did.
There were no names released in the publication today, but I'll be waiting for that information if and when it comes out and we'll all know together. Let's get the countdown started. Don't be afraid to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
Thanks to limowreck666 for the picture of the steroids.
