...several All-Pro NFL players have tested positive for banned substances and are in New York this week to plead their cases to Commissioner Roger Goodell. The players, including Saints RB Deuce McAllister and a pair of Vikings defensive linemen, claimed they had no idea the supplements they were using contained the banned substances. Earlier this week, ESPN talking head Chris Mortenson was on the air with Tirico and Van Pelt talking about the possibility of leniency for these guys.
I, for one, am outraged that sportswriters across America are not in fact outraged by this. Come on, guys, where are the ringing denunciations? The high-minded moralizing about the sanctity of the game and the health risks the players are taking?
Oh. Wait. Right. It's football, and they don't talk about that sort of thing, especially when the Steelers get juked out of covering the spread.
