Steroids in football, names to be released tonite

Four more players have been linked to Dr. James Shortt, the physician who prescribed steroids for former Panthers players Todd Steussie, Jeff Mitchell and Todd Sauerbrun. ESPN.com reports that HBO's show "Costas Now" will release the names of four players connected to Dr. Shortt, who is currently under federal investigation.

I would like to see a big name come out of this but considering we're talking about Carolina here I doubt that is going to happen. I have no doubt that there are NFL players taking steroids that cannot be detected. For all the attention to baseball, the fact remains that the NFL steroid testing policy is not nearly as thorough or as harsh as the World Anti-Doping Agency, which regulates Olympic events such as cycling or sprinting.
