I have no clue how many players are doing it. I makes sense with Merriman. Dudes a beast. Juiced up of course but still a beast.

Not a surprise. Players are juiced up on EVERY NFL team. I'm sure there's at least a couple of our beloved Saints on the stuff too.

Steroids aren't evil. They have valid medical uses, as in reconstructing muscle tissue, and I don't mean just biceps. Why wouldn't you give them to a person who's gone through 20 car crashes in 3 hours? We want faster, stronger football players, bigger and harder hits, and get all bummed out when a player doesn't seem to get past injuries. We had no issues with cortizone or morphin-based pain killers being injected into these guys to send them right back into the field after they get injured... so really, why not allow these guys in a controlled manner - as in preventing mis/over use - to give them the physical ability to withstand the punishment their bodies go for 7-8 months a year?

Steroids by themselves do no "enhance" your performance. That's a huge misconception. If you just inject steroids in you, you are going to get fat/puffy, and whatever muscle tissue that's hurt will heal faster that it'd heal by itself. But you are not going to run faster, or hit harder, or throw the ball further. You'd still need to lift the weights, run the sprints, etc... and they are not going to improve your game : they are not going to give you better field vision, or sideline awareness, or make you a better tackler, or read defenses, etc...

La neta es chida, pero inalcanzable

... and if they don't do it, their bodies wouldn't be able to take the punishment. of playing the game.
And therein lies the hypocricy of the rule.
