Been away for a few weeks but definitely noticed some of the off-season noise on all the social media networks from James Harrison (2002 – 2015 as a linebacker with the Pittsburgh Steelers with one year in Cincinnati) coming forward to tackle the NFL on its ridiculous “investigation” into performance-enhancing drugs (PED’s) over the years.
It seems to have really started with an investigative report from Al Jazeera last year on PED’s that included interviews with many current and former players that kicked off a firestorm and an “investigation” by the NFL. But not so much an investigation into the use of PED’s as it was a witch hunt into those who actually had the balls to step up and speak out about this open secret inside the League. The League recently announced its plans to “investigate” many of the players implicated in DopeGate, including Peyton Manning who is already involved in another serious investigation: DeflateGate. Ha!
