Step Out of the Car, Sir

One of the ramifications of the lockout is the cessation of drug testing or team monitoring. Guys are pretty much free to get ripped at will these days. Some will use this down time to go on a steroid bulk

Truth in Blabvertising

The NFL owners and GMs have been in meetings this week in New Orleans. They will be writing off everything they do as business expenses. Hidden in the costs of these write-offs will no doubt be some hookers, back-rubbers, toe
