What is the best answer we have to those who say our first four should be *'d?

Some key questions that I don't know the answers to:

1) Is there proof the Steelers of the 70's used these drugs? I suppose the tell-all book(s) might make the question of "proof" moot, unless there are some rebuttals by Steelers of those teams.

2) Were these substances "prescription-only" at the time? If not, IMO the users would be no more culpable than folks today taking ginseng, or creatine, etc. But if they were prescription only ...:

3) Did some doc prescribe them to the players? If the docs did ("for healing purposes"), then again, the players aren't culpable.

4) Was it standard of care on other sports teams for docs to prescribe these drugs?

What is the answer that shuts all this talk up and makes it clear the one who brings this question up is misinformed, at best?

BTW - that Charger defensive back who got suspended for 4 games for using steroids ... will his records be asterisked? Are his achievements called into question? I think they should be, but the NFL apparently doesn't ... they have him on their PR highlight films, etc.

Just my :2c

I keep trying to leave comments but I am getting a "Whoops, error retrieving account information" message.

I wanted to post the following links:

Perhaps posting links is not allowed, so to get around it I tried posting: google the following (and enclosed the key words for the two different searches in quotes). Still wouldn't work.

Anyway, just another Steelers hater with a blog on a well known website.

I bet you this guy is a Yankee fan. Whenever a reporter has his dreams crushed he always goes out and looks for someone else to pull down. He also knows the Steeler nation is huge

effe him.

I was getting a little inflamed when I read this but after some deep breaths and a little logical thought, I am back on an even kilter. Cornhole Kreigel is simply applying todays standards to a team of 35 years ago. Different era, different rules and interpretations. Same as saying Jack Lambert should be banished from the Hall of Fame for slinging Cliff Harris to the ground in Super Bowl X. It was unsportsmanlike, it was thuggery, it was INTIMIDATING! But that is not how the act was interpreted back then. I dont remember seeing so much as a flag or hearing any post game attempts to demonize him for his actions. (ala James Harrison)

No Steeler (or any other NFL player for that matter) ever got suspended, fined, or thrown in jail for these activities during that era. Nor did the Steelers lose any draft picks. Case closed.

It's not as if the Steelers were the only team using steroids in the 70's. No one is going to tell me that players on other teams were not also using the juice. The Steelers just catch the flack because of the book and the fact that they won the championships. If the Raiders or Cowboys had won that much in that era we would be hearing about how they were using steroids and should not be considered true champions. The era was different and those things were not looked upon in the same light as today. I think it is a little different with the baseball players of today and the football players of the past.

Someone would have to pretty naive to think that steroids were only being used by those in the Steelers locker room. What about the other 27 teams at the time? So, if our Steelers linemen used them and so did, say the Bengals linemen, and we played them and STILL whooped their asse$, it's the steroids that did it?

Give me a break........What a moron.
