Honestly how fucked is the NFL and the Broncos when they find out Peyton pulled a Barry Bonds?
the NFL would come down like the hand of god if a whistleblower came out and blew open steroid abuse. You can't sell a Buick or a retirement plan if everyone thinks the sport is dirty.
It could explain why everyone is so goddamn afraid to get hit in the nfl- doesn't prolonged steroid use lead to weak bones?
Baseball is the only major sport they didn't turn a complete blind eye to
NFL, NHL, NBA are all dirty as fuck, baseball is too but at least they're making some effort and players have actually been punished
Its a murky situation. Nobody wants to investigate it because nobody wants to find out and see where the rabbit hole leads.Owners may be forced to sell teams, coaches with reputations will get shitcanned and hall of famers might lose their spot.
They tiptoed around baseball because nobody really won there. nobody benefits from a "clean" sport, the more they dug into it the less trust the fans had in the collective establishment and advertisers wanted to be further and further away from the fallout.
