    Wow, what a shock. Its a shame, as Merriman is a good linebacker, and one of the top teams in the AFc now takes a huge loss on thier defense.

    Is it me, or does a lot of the steroid problem emanate from
    California. In baseball you had Canseco,McGwire,Bonds,Caminitti,
    Giambi. All started doing it on the west coast. I've always thought
    the Raiders used them. That OL they had in 01 and 02 went
    about 350each. Of course, Romo was on that team. Of years
    past Alzado was there.

    Someone get them a shovel--it's getting deep!!! It's hard enough to overcome the coach's stupidity with a full squad!

    I have a funny feeling that this is more widespread than we might think. I hope none of the Pats' players are using steroids. You get the feeling that anyone could be busted at anytime.

    Kind of sad, you would think he would learn his lesson the first time, I was wondering how he got so big all of a sudden, now we know why.

    I'm pretty sure it was their other #1 pick Castillo who admitted steroid use at the combine - not Merriman.

    Well, not such a freak of nature as we all thought afterall.

    The question is, will they retroactively adjust his numbers in Madden?

    Being in California is a significant influence to the # of cases because it's very easy to go over the border to Mexico and purchase steroids that are not illegal there and then bring them back over the border. I am also concerned that many more players are using and just Merriman got caught. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
