When the Steelers did steroids - and we did, I wont even try to deny it - they were legal. When Ray Lewis used antler spray to recover, that was cheating.I don't care if steroids were illegal in the 70's...the objective is to beat them. No excuses. The Steelers of the 70's were just an amazing group of players/great FO/HOf coach. Can't take anything away from them.
Steroids is such a pansy excuse in any era. If one team is on steroids, guess what? They all are.What he said. Just like if people are stupid enough to think Belichick was the only one ever videotaping from an illegal location.
We do not know if other teams right now or in the past have illegally videotaped, but that does not mean it did not happen or people admit it years later. I wouldn't be surprised if someone else admits it.
