    They should can him and just let his Papi do the show, he is the only reason that show is still on the air.

    BTW I think that Le Bartard is a child rapist, I have no proof whatsoever, but what the hell, why not?

    “And this is what I want to ask you: … When faced with a quarterback who is aging in a way that has no precedent in the history of aging, is there any particular reason that people aren’t questioning that?” Le Batard asked co-host Stugotz. “Man, we climbed into Peyton Manning … Peyton Manning doesn’t look the part on pharmaceuticals, and Al Jazeera was climbing around in his wife’s stuff, trying to get at the hormones. “And so what I’m asking you is, is it an unfair question to wonder whether, when facing something that has literally no precedent in the history of football or aging, to be like, ‘how?’ ” Stugotz’s response: “No, it’s not an unfair question.”

    Figured that talking point/strategy to pull Tom down would have started before now. He should have some proof or they need to get rid of him. Anyone can make crap up, but doesn't mean it should be put out there because you have an audience.

    Perhaps Dan should go "live as Brady does" for 1 month and see what happens to his overall physical well being (assuming he could survive it in the first place).

    Put you money where you mouth is. Live it, understand it and then decide if there's anything to it.

    So it begins. Had to figure that someone would say this, given his high level of play in his late 30's and now 40's.

    And I am with Chasa, I'm not giving ESPN the click.

    IDK but if he was using steroids, wouldn't his body have broken down by now. From what I understand, it is hard to get off injuries when steroids are being used.

    I might give this some thought if there was proof of hgh shipments being sent to the brady household even if it was in Gisele’s name.

    **** Le Batard. That's like in this South Park episode in which Cartman is a news talking head. "I am not accusing you of anything nor being libelous, I am asking quessssstionnnsss"

    **** that stupid sensationalistic crap that the haters will use as fact.

    I'm surprised it took them this long to start baselessly insinuating it, tbh. Get used to it I guess, now that the seal's broken it'll only get louder as Brady continues to age and play well regardless.

    Which was itself making fun of Glenn Beck building a whole career out of doing the same thing. A strategy that Le Batard is clearly all too happy to rip off. This crap has been the norm in political punditry for a long time now, makes sense it would find its way to Brady.

    Not clicking BSPN.

    But Brady looks like the polar opposite of someone who does steroids.

    Maybe this is the scandal they'll try to cook up, but I can't see it getting legs. The "avocado ice cream" meme is far too established for this **** to gain traction among anyone except hardened haters.

    Peyton Manning pushed Bud Light, Papa Johns and wound up like the rest. Tom Brady pushes the TB12 method, and while many think it's wacky, it's apparently working for him.

    Yeah, based on everything we know about steroids it's pretty clear Brady's not using them. There are plenty of non-steroid PEDs that are far more likely (HGH, etc.), but I think it's irresponsible to speculate on that sort of stuff.

    I'm puzzled.
    Steroids were responsible for shortening the lives of dozens of former NFL greats (refer to the 1970's Steelers).....but apparently Tom Brady processes his roids differently?
    Why do modern steroids only prolong one NFL player's career?
    So many questions
    So little thought applied

    Well, I am pretty sure he uses Viagra. It goes under the brand name Giselle.

    Peyton Manning doesn't look the part if someone using "pharmaceuticals"?

    Has the guy looked at Manning's forehead recently?

    That's really all the evidence you need, setting aside the known shipments being sent directly to his home.

    He has the forehead of a drive-in movie theater. That's usually one tell-tale sign. There is zero chance that Brady is using 'roids.

    I think there is enough evidence that non-traditional medicine and nutrition regimes can be effective to suggest that, without actual proof, this allegation verges on the slanderous. There is no rationale, other than wild speculation, to suggest that Tom Brady is violating any rules related to PED's.

    That said, I have posted out here many times that, given Guerrero's questionable history, I hope that Brady regularly sends anything that Guerrero gives him to ingest (and that is prepared just for Brady and/or others of his clients and that is not packaged for sale to the public) to an independent laboratory for testing.
