The 2017-2018 NFL season is officially over. But for the athletes, the offseason is where the real work happens (at least that’s what my high school football coach always said. In fact, it was his favorite saying behind “Catch the damn ball! Pretend that ball is a tit, if it was a tit you wouldn’t let go of it, would ya?” and “Doctor says you can’t practice because of a concussion!? SPRINTS!”) He was awesome. But I digress.
During the offseason, the NFL players and hopefuls will be hitting the weight room to stay healthy and/or bulk up. And it seems like the most popular workout machine isn’t the bench press or the squat rack — it’s the needle. Hey, I don’t blame them. As a viewer, I encourage it. I don’t dish out $99 per year for an all access pass to watch spindly, drug-free soccer players hug each other. I want to see two musclebound freaks with pent up ‘roid rage collide with the force of two freight trains. That’s what America’s Game is all about.
And according to these nifty charts, the NFL will continue to deliver. Here’s a breakdown on drug use in the league.
