How do you even know none of the Patriots current/past weren't on HGH? You don't, so I'd tread carefully before talkin smack about someone busted for HGH.
Of course Patriots players have used PEDs. Probably almost every NBA, MLB, NFL player, etc. has.
People that think otherwise are complete freaking dumb asses.
The point being made is that ESPN only cares to make up fake stories about Brady "cheating" (deflategate), and cares ZERO about the mention of PEDs as it related to certain "golden boys" they like to promote (LeBron, Manning, etc.).
But, you know damn well if Brady's name comes up with PEDs, ESPN will spend YEARS talking about it.
ESPN is entirely run at production level from big New York media, and they are a seriously manipulative and dirty propaganda company.
Look how they crucified Armstrong, Rodriguez, Bonds, Sosa, Palmiero, McGwire, Clemens, and then just basically ignored or swept under the rug, or even covered up clear PED use of numerous other sports stars.
Like how they did not even touch the Wade and LeBron connection to a huge steroid scandal.
ESPN is absolutely ridiculous in the amount of social programming it does. It's at the same level as other television programming like Fox "News", CNN, MSNBC and crap like that.

As soon as you just accept that pretty much every pro sports franchise to some degree is doing something to cheat, the less this stuff matters.
The problem is that in this forum, EVERY time a PED in sports thread comes up, AT LEAST 2/3s of the people posting in the thread claim no one in the NBA or whatever used PEDs and they fervently claim that the stars have not done so.
They even claim that from playing in the Olympics, "proves" that they never used PEDs, because "they get tested in the Olympics".
Even though the head of Olympics drug testing has said over and over that they can't even detect any of the drugs currently in use, and the drugs that they can detect are like from 20 years ago.
The amount of delusion on this subject from most people is ridiculous. Most people really think that sports and athletes are all "clean". Which just shows how stupid most people are.
Most people just won't believe that the athletes are doping.
not really. al jazeera is funded and controlled by the qatari royal family
rt america is controlled directly by the russian government
calling either network an example of "good liberal media" is laughable.
NBC and MSNBC are owned and controlled by the military industrial complex of GE.
ABC is owned by Disney Corporation, which is a proven Nazi conglomerate.
Fox "News" is owned by a wealthy Saudi royal billionaire, and is run by a known member of the Nazi party.
ABC, CBS, CNN, NBC, MSNBC, Fox News are all funded with BILLIONS of dollars from government money from the pentagon and the state department.
They are officially state run "news" propaganda organizations.
So are things like the BBC, BBC International, Radio Free America, Radio Free Europe, etc., etc.
The budget of the US state funded media is over 30 times bigger than the budget of Russia Today.
This does not even account for all the government sponsored and corporate owned and controlled media like Huffington Post, Washington Post, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and on and on and on and on.
You are a ****ing retard if you think there is anything as sinister as Western News Media.
hey eurocunt, before you get your panties in a knot, maybe you could show me exactly where i said CNN and MSNBC were good news sources.
all mainstream news sources have strong biases, every single one of them.
You clearly implied that being owned by a foreign billionaire, or having state sponsorship makes a media outlet unreliable.
Then you gave examples that are about 1/100th as bad anything in US and Western European news media.
Even things like the freaking Young Turks are clearly ten times more corporate and state run and controlled than something like Russia Today, let alone freaking Al Jazeera.
The fact that Russia Today and Al Jazeera have an agenda, a bias, or whatever is obvious as hell. But to take that and try to disqualify anything they report, when literally nothing in western media is even real, is beyond delusional.
Remember that according to Western Media, 39 countries in the world were proven to have all their athletes doping at the last Olympics, including USA. However, western media chose only to name a select 6 of those countries, and chose to single out Russia on a long looping news cycle, without ever once mentioning that USA also doped all its athletes.
The difference between something like Al Jazeera and Russia Today is they would report on ALL the countries that doped, even if they try to spin it or make excuses.
There is simply no comparison at all between these media outlets.
Some are biased and agenda driven and whatever, others are straight out of Goebbels and 1984.
