This is a joke. The only difference between now and then is linemen are on steroids AND fat. There was an article not long ago (damnit, I wish I had the link) that did a comparison on playing weight 20 years ago versue today. What thay found was pretty astonishing. I can’t remember the year (I’m pretty sure it was in the 80’s because they talked about Fridge a lot), but at one time there were only a handful of guys topping 300 (Fridge for example, was considered a behemoth; biggest guy in the league of his time). 400 was
unheard of. Now, you won’t even start on the line unless you weigh AT LEAST 300 (I realize there are a FEW exceptions, but not many). There’s plenty of guys close to/topping 400. Fridge wouldn’t even be close to the biggest guy in the league now. These guys are definitely eating a lot more (I think I read somewhere close to 8000k for some players; could be wrong, though), but there is no way they could last 16 games at the weight they play without the recovery help from the juice.
The general public is just so ignorant about steroids. They seem to think BALCO was some sort of breakthrough, as if it was in a field all of its own by developing an undetectable anabolic agent. In reality, designer steroids have been around for years and BALCO is only the tip of the iceberg. Where do you think Olympic athletes/cyclists get all their gear? There’s more underground designer labs out there than we’ll ever even know about. Scientists have been and always will be years ahead of the testing…[/quote]
