    What's even funnier is that all these *******s on the ESPN forum like this guy...

    ...but probably came down hard on the Pats for Spygate. :rolleyes:

    seems like the nfl shouldn't have suspended them

    how you going to tell your players it's ok to take it, then suspend them when it's revealed it was tainted

    it wasn't on the nfl's banned list

    Falcons play 2 of these teams down the stretch-Saints and Vikings.

    Panthers play the Saints in the last week of the season.

    And not to mention too Minny's NFCN rival, Chicago, has a CAKE schedule in this final sprint.

    Yah-this could impact the NFC playoff picture in a BIG way.

    Yeah I don't even understand why these guys are getting suspended after players were told it was ok to take. There's got to be more to this.

    I like how roids is in the title and how it is perceived as a "steroid policy" offence.

    The drug at issue is a diuretic, it takes water out of your system to help you lose weight, make weight, etc. It does not make you bigger and stronger.

    The Goodell reign of terror must stop.

    This is a big blow for the Vikings since the defense relies heavily on the Williams on the run defense. Hopefully there can be an appeal or something that can best case scenario at least delay/reduce/remove the suspension. But yeah thanks Goodell for giving the NFC North to the Bears... gggrrrrrr.......

    What it does do, though, is that it can mask the presence of banned substances in the urine--and that's why it's banned.

    I'm not saying I agree with that logic, but that is the logic behind it.

    This is not true according to the NFL. According to ESPN
