Report: 3 Panthers Filled Steroid Scripts

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina Panthers Todd Sauerbrun and Jeff Mitchell and former player Todd Steussie had steroid prescriptions filled by a West Columbia, S.C., doctor now under investigation by federal authorities, according to "60 Minutes Wednesday" report.

In a release Tuesday, the CBS News show said the players all had prescriptions for testosterone cream filled within two weeks of the Panthers' appearance in the 2004 Super Bowl.

In addition to the cream, which is banned by the NFL, Sauerbrun - one of the league's top punters - also obtained syringes and the injectable steroid Stanozolol, which is also banned by the league.

The prescriptions were reportedly written by Dr. James Shortt, who is the subject of a Drug Enforcement Administration probe for allegedly prescribing steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs.

Mitchell, a center, filled a testosterone prescription seven times, while Steussie, an offensive lineman now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, obtained 11 refills over an eight-month period in 2004, CBS reported.

I would assume that Barry Bonds does\'nt have an excuse now for his steriod use. They should all have their records nullified and the Superbowl should be awarded to the losing team. Barry Bonds should have his records taken away, as with anyone who has used performance enhancing drugs.

Where do you get this @@it Billy? I must not get out much. LOL. No comments needed.

Those cheating SOB\'s should be stripped of their NFC championship in the record books! I\'m so sick of everyone saying John Fox is the best thing since sliced bread. Your telling me he had no clue about the steroid usage on his team. The Panthers have just taken the place of the Falcons as my least favorite team.

It\'s somewhat naive to believe this isn\'t common practice in the NFL. These examples just show that you won\'t be caught if you aren\'t tested or tested properly.
Even if you get caught, you will only be out for 4 games. Add to that the league\'s interest to appear clean and some positive/doubtful tests aren\'t reported. Players know it and they will take advantage.

The big question is: Who conducts the tests and what interests do they have in mind?
Still the best example: Professional cycling. Hardly any rider tested positive in the 90s, but when French police and an aquivalent to the DEA launched a criminal investigation - oh boy!

So you think that Barry Bonds should be kept from entering the hall of fame?

Sweet it is, WhoDat.

We need to get that Jake Delhomme tested. I\'m sure Jake has been injecting his race horses with steroids.

Notice how fat Jake\'s face has become? Hmmmmmmmm?

Yes on Barry Bonds. I don\'t think he deserves anything if he can\'t beat a 60 year old record without drugs.

END OF STORY!!!!!!!!!!!

If you think he does, you deserves exactly what he is going to get. A legend because he screwed up or cheated, short of like the Black Socks a long time ago.

No because he is a complete player, but McGwire should be kept out cause all he did was hit homers
