    Borges is using at best extremely weak links in this implication, and at worst outright disregard for the truth. I didn't click the link to the full Herald article, but here's what was in BSMW:

    So in other words, at one time Brady's name was brought up with Balco, it turned out there was nothing there - and now Borges is implying he's connected. Of course, since Borges didn't come right out and say it, he can conveniently say "I never said that." But if that's the case Ron, then what exactly did you mean with the comment about Brady? That thanks to A-Rod he's no longer the focus of the paparazzi and TMZ?

    Yeah, right; Brady's been out of the tabloids for quite a while.

    that is really a sensitive topic, I hope Borges is not putting more dirt on the pats.. We know he was a Bledsoe guy for a very long time, and was in his corner before Brady..

    Comparing taking steriods to become a better player and steriods to heal a major injury shouldnt be done. Guys should be allowed to take steriods to get over major injuries.

    Borges is garbage, and what a shock he's writing for the Herald. Why am I not surprised. :rolleyes: Trash belongs with Trash.

    I lose more and more respect for the media everyday.

    I know, im just talking in general. On one hand its a guy trying to get an unfair advantage, on the other hand its a guy trying to save his career from being ended by a big injury.

    I know, I just think Borges was a bit out of line with his implication. There was a genuine story to write, and no valid reason to bring Brady's name in to it. I'd really like to hear somebody ask Borges what he meant by that.

    I get the feeling that Borges meant to implicate Brady if possible. Uggh, how would you react if the press starts going after Brady?:mad:

    That's actually a very good point. Steroids are legitimate medicine with a legitimate limited purpose.

    They should be available through the team doctor and he should disclose who is being treated, and when treatment ends. Player should be ineligible for some period of time in addition to treatment time. A guy on the IR all year should be able to do them during that season on IR.

    As I understand it, other than pain control, steroids are the main treatment for burn patients - if you burn off the skin on one arm (lets say rescuing a baby, a puppy, and I dunno, Mother Theresa,) you can't tell me the League has to insist that you go through extra weeks of unabating pain just to keep their "competitive balance."

    But sadly that's not the rule.

    In the dwindling world of actual journalism, Borges has bastardized himself into just your run of the mill contrarian. Hoorahj//////

    In 2006, I believe, Brady was back home in California. He was looking for a trainer to work him out. Bonds' trainer was on a master list of area pro athlete trainers and Brady called him. For whatever reason, they couldn't arrange a schedule that worked for both of them and after a brief phone conversation that was the end of their contact. Bonds' trainer, of course, had a cell phone which had, among countless others, Brady's number on it. At the time it became public information, Brady explained what had happened, as did the trainer. Even the voracious media types concluded there was nothing untoward there. But, not Ronnie Boy. Interesting return to form (taking snide, cheap-shots at the Patriots whenever possible) from the guy who committed, and could not deny it, the ultimate cheating sin in the world of journalism - plagiarism. And he did it twice, and was fired for it. The prototypical hypocrite. What a sleaze-bag...

    Compare the football testing program with baseball.

    Baseball tests you on the first day of training camp, and then once during the season.

    Football tests you once in July and then four times during the season (it can even be more). Then, they have the right to test you up to 6 times unannounced in the offseason.

    Baseball, twice a year.

    Jason Taylor was recently tested 10 times in one year, and he was clean.

    Big difference there Ronny.
