Default Ken Griffey Jr took steroids!

Ok obviously he didn't. But how did you feel with that thread title? After the new scandal that is arising is anyone surprised by a-rod? Not at all.


I wanted to make this thread to ask you what headline would shock you the most. Would it be "Griffey took steroids"? If I heard this I would not believe it and if it was true I would be shocked! What is the most shocking news you would never expect to hear?


Maybe a day comes when bud calls Pete Rose to the Hall of Fame

Another sport, but it would be Peyton Manning having an affair with another woman

Griffey admitted to taking steroids after injuries. Alot of players have taken steroids to get back sooner. Illegal?? Maybe but within the rules. I have no problem knowing the grif took them to help him heal.

Link? Pretty sure if Griffey actually admitted to taking steroids it would be public knowledge.

Wasn't there whispers of such allegations with him and his friend, Gary Sheffield?

Why is it obvious he didn't? In that era, I wouldn't bet on anyone not taking anything, baseball is closer to WWE than the game alot of us grew up with. It's a shame what the commissinor and the players and their union have done, they all deserve to be under that cloud.

I'm waiting for the 'Michael Jordan banned from NBA for gambling' and that's why he played baseball for 2 years! Actually not sure if I'd be shocked by that.

Did you really just find out about a-rod? Didn't he admit to steroids in like 2009? I know the new story, now but it's not like people didn't know.

I pretty much assume they all were using something and now I assume they are all using deer antler spray!

Neither would I as long as a doctor prescribed them. Otherwise, he broke the law.

You are absolutely and categorically incorrect. Junior readily admitted he used nerve tonic supplied by his softball coach and mentor, Charles Montgomery Burns. This has been confirmed by the evidence I submit to you in this thread:

I'd be shocked if it came out that Barry Bonds never took steroids!

or that Ted Williams was cloned!

I don't know for real

Is PED and Steroids the same or different?

I'm thinking different but not positive.

PED = performance enhancing drugs, so that pretty much covers everything used to enhance performance.

PED is just an acronym for performance enhancing drug, so steroids would be or form of a PED

Well most likely no one is surprised because he admitted to using steroids back in 2009

Right I understand that so.... Anyone can take steroids for anything. Like I had a friend that got real sick and they put him on steroids.

PED would be more intentional?

Steroids are PED's, as they enhance performance skills in sports. Steroids are indeed legal (all anabolic steroids are controlled substance III) if you have a prescription and used for many reasons but they are banned in sports
