    Back in the late 70's and early 80's you could get a Rx for Testostorone cypionate from some shady doctors (you would have to get your deca underground)....I had one myself. The Steelers of the 70's were notorious steroid users according to the people in the powerlifting communities. Roids were everywhere back then, they just didn't get as much press as today. Heck, many of the Steelers are already dead before 50. This article was from a couple a years ago. I think more Steelers (in this era) have died since this was written.

    Oiler fan is making a big assumption that his team didn't have steroid abusers.

    I look at that in the same way as I do smoking or the three martini lunch (minimum) that was also a very popular way of life during that time. Now that all three are deemed poor for the health at minimum as well in some instances illegal, then laws and opinions would be better served in the here and now.

    Bradshaw probably needs to keep his mouth shut. Declarations like this are a disservice to his teammates both alive and dead. What's done is done and I am sure just about everyone was doing it to some degree. It was legal after all.

    If Bradshaw is saying this to increase awareness and solve a problem, fine. His admission seems to me like he just wants to stir the pot a bit and make the news.

    I like Bradshaw but just shut up already, because you are hurting the game and sullying the reputation of your teammates.
