    This Wall Street Journal piece begs the question that I've always asked. It sometimes makes you wonder if the NFL truly wants to "clean" things up.

    Fo real.

    I always thought steroids were rampant in the NFL and some teams/players were just better at hiding it. Not saying I'm right but if I had to bet on it I would say more than half the players in the league either have been or are currently on performance enhancing drugs.

    Who needs to take drugs when you can overtrain? That's the Texans way.

    For that matter, you're supposed to stop drugs when you're pregnant.:kitten:

    Actually the players get insider info on who is going to be drug tested and pass it along in game with QB signals.

    Blue 92! NEEDLE NEEDLE - TUESDAY - HUT(1)HUT(2).

    Let me transalte that.

    Defender wearing #92 will be drug tested on Tuesday 2PM.

    Is 15 hours enough notice to get something like steroids or HGH out of your system without leaving a trace?
