The Tip of the Iceberg

We like to think of ourselves as pretty well-read, up on current events however we completely missed one of the most important media reports to be published in quite awhile.

In the online weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal writer Allen Barra asks, and attempts to answer the rhetorical question "where's the outrage over steroid use in the NFL?.

Mr. Barra's piece is based upon an expose by the San Diego Union-Tribune that lists 185 players, including 52 who are in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, "linked to the use of performance-enhancing substances." Every NFL team is represented including more than a few Pittsburgh Steelers. For an interactive look at the list, by team, as well as links to other resources click here.
