You and your partner are trying desperately to derail this thread by interjecting aspersions on the NFL, but I'm not going down this primrose path too far with you, or the other guy.Originally Posted by hpearson .
I dont think that was his point. His point was that doped athletes are killing the sport NOT that it is making it great. People don't care in bodybuilding, NFL, pro wrestling etc... and this much is true.
I am not advocating drugs but the use of drugs made cycling much more exciting, high cadence climbing, lead changes, huge come backs, close finishes. Cycling was far more exciting in the Armstrong years than it ever has been ........save 8 secs in Paris tic tic tic tic tic tic tic tic tic!
Doped athletes (IME and IMO) are not a rampant nor accepted part of the NFL culture, and I spent several years in the league.
Nothing is killing the NFL - not doped athletes or anything else.
People DO care as to whether or not they are witnessing illegal drug-enhanced performances. Done.
