This column by Bill Simmons should be read by every sports fan. So many of today's players are using PED's and we are turning a blind eye to it, if you ask me. I don't trust anyone any more when it comes to greatness. It's too easy to cheat, and the benefits are too great not to. And if you get caught, you already have made a ton of money doing so. Yet, we don't want to talk about it until someone does get caught, and even then we seem to forgive and forget within a short period of time. NFL players are complaining now about their safety, and trying to sue the NFL over it, yet I bet if they were blood tested 60-70% of them are using PED's to get bigger and stronger and faster and able to do more damage. The hypocrisy of that is astounding to me. The bodies of Dwight Howard and Lebron look normal to you? Hmmm. The William sisters in Tennis are the size of college linebackers. Tiger Woods had a back with the width of football player, but lower legs the size of a badminton player. Yet, we all just go along as if none of this is happening. Simmons is right, this should be talked about more openly, and blood testing HAS TO happen in sports.
