Are You Ready for Some Football?

The NFL season starts tonight with the Colts and Saints, but the talk hasn't been about the opener, but the revelations that Harrison and Wade Williams, the QB coach for the Cowboys are involved in a probe, much like the BALCO case. Mr. Wilson's suspension came a day after New England safety Rodney Harrison was suspended for the first four games of the season without pay. The moves stem from an investigation by the Albany, N.Y., district attorney's office into an alleged Internet scam involving an Orlando, Fla., pharmacy. The probe centers on performance-enhancing drugs, such as anabolic steroids and human growth hormone, and professional athletes. I'm telling you it's only going to get worse, no league is safe now! Do you think the general public will care about this investigation just like steroids in baseball? I don't think so, because football is a contact sport and what people enjoy the most is watching these big, strong, athletic guys tackling and running for touchdowns. So in my opinion the impact will be very little and that's kind of sad the double-standard that exists, but it's America for goodness sake! The New England Patriots are my favorite team and I really hope that this doesn't affect the chemistry that exists in the locker room and on the field. Harrison has been such a major part of the Patriots success, remember the Eagles vs. Patriots a few years ago?
