I found it a very intresting article citing all the resent deaths and mixing it with the baseball steroid scandal.

Your thoughts?

They might be on to something, but haven't steroids been around for a long time in baseball? It doesn't seem like this is a new thing... and just because Davey and Billy Graham had steroid complications, does that make for a huge trend?

I have had the steroid discussion with a lot of people including PhD's in sports medicine, and kinesiology as well as a lot of MD, DC, and DO friends of mine. We are all pretty much in agreement that used correctly, steroids are a great performance enhancer and bodybuilder with few side effects. The problems always come if they are not used correctly and abused, as with anything.

They are actually cracking down on bringing them in from Mexico now. You used to be able to legally bring in a 90 day supply or less for personal use but now even that is being cracked down on.

I agree with the doctor the article quoted, I could put anyone with no other medical problems on a cycle of steroids and build them up and enhance their physique with little to no side effects whatsoever.

Some stuff I agree, some stuff I think it's really unfair.

I do have a problem when you talk about wrestling, everything thinks McMahon's WWE. When you are talking about Dick Dudley, he wasn't in the WWE. At least this article didn't lump in all indy stars that died young, that would be like bringing in bad press in the CBA and Euro Basketball and placing the blame on David Stern.

Another thing they bring up wrestling deaths like that is the only "sport" that has it's athletes die young. NBA and NFL had superstars die young like Wilt Chamberlain and Walter Payton both died before really hitting old age.

I mentioned this on the baseball forum, but I find it kind of funny how the media is all jumping on the big taboo that is Steroid. But still applaud and make legends of guys who take the painkiller pill or needle. If you are going to take a stance of "I worry about these human beings" I personally think pain killers are more addicting and causes more trouble in the long run.

One thing I did like was was when he mentioned "As their muscle mass got too big for their frames and they started getting the typical steroid-related injuries -- pulled hamstrings, strained muscles, ruptured tendons"... That is so true, the guys that seem to be on the juice their bodies are tighter then cheap watches or having a dozen electrical plugs in one outlit. No surprise some of tear a leg with just stepping or S. Steiner gets injured every 3 months without really wrestling that hard a style.

Hey J.R if you dont' want the boys to be injured so much, and tell your cruisers to "slow down" here an idea and encourage some of your guys not to be on the juice.

I agree with the notion that the article is kind of unfair towards Vinny Mac.

I mean, look at the names:

Davey Boy Smith: worked with the WWF for a long time, but really got sick in WCW.
Louie Spicoli: never was in the WWF
Big Dick Dudley: never was in the WWF

The whole thing is that the young guys get on the juice in the first place to get big and get attention, but then once they get to that level they become slaves to the juice in order to stay in that kind of shape.

THe big teddybear known as ECA spreads the nitpickin' LOVE with this point:

--Louie Spicoli was Rad Radford in the WWF. Short time, crappy gimmick, but he was getting a paycheck from Vince at one time.





"All born equal unless you're Canadian
Then halfway through decay like Uranium
You define what's death-defying
Get the most out of life or at the least die trying
Are you Evil Knievel jumping a train?
Or running with scissors like Frasier Crane?
Have really good times doing really bad things
‘Cause the show ain't over ‘til the fat lady sings
Like Elton John with his candle in the wind
It's hard to blow out a flame as big as him
But we've all got to Wang Chung with the Grim Reaper
Whether you're Einstein whether you're Beaker
Death is certain so it's definitely worth flirtin'
Don't expect a bright light no just curtains
Life is like a penis most people don't know it
But most people suck so they usually blow it"

I would not have booked Batista/Taker to go last because I would've thought there was no way it could follow Cena/Michaels.
