I am saying if you are gonna do something that stupid. Then you should get caught because you are not playing fair. You are playing with basically a fake body.

You people do realize that there is no one steroid pill or injection right? There is a list of banned chemicals. Silly example but, you could eat a burger with HGH injected into it and be banned.

It's not only plausible but likely that he took something that had a banned chemical in it.

Also for the person that said he's rare you are over-rating Merriman. They are lots of player that are his size and athleticism range.

The difference is that Merriman plays to try to hurt people so he's more intense when he gets in on a play.

If he really does try to hurt people that shows a higher level of aggression, which is another symptom of steroid abuse.

Anyhow at this point there is no one in any main sports aside from car racing, golf and basketball that it would surprise me to hear was roiding (and some bball players are suspect). I would like to see Congress pass some strict, intelligent laws on steroids, HGH, amphetamines, etc. that involved at least weekly testing. If pro sports are ever going to get cleaned up that's what it's going to take, and we still probably won't catch all cheaters.

No, Merriman tries to hurt people because he has so much rage built inside him that to release it on a football field is the only way he doesn't kill somebody.

Go look up his bio. Dude's life as a child was messed up.

He could be releasing excess rage but it is a fact that higher levels of aggression are symptomatic of steroid abuse. There's nothing to argue here.

The guy is a huge part of the Chargers D.

Other teams should protest their losses to the Bolts.

That would really put the users (and those who pay them) in a bad spot and maybe make them think twice about using.

It is the ONLY way to clean this shiiit up. Sports is going to be ruined by this steroid epedemic, and not just the drugs alone, the media focus and the cloud of doubt will only get larger and larger until there is a massive shiiiit storm that ruins the game for good, or basically all sports.

I'm not arguing that aggression is not a symptom od steriod use.

My post was to explain that it's not the case with Merriman. He's played the way he has since he was a child. Thee guy became a LB because when his Pee-Wee coach asked what position he wanted to play Merriman said he just wants to hit people.

The guy was so vicious that he actually was not allowed to practice in high school. The coaching staff just set him off to the side with hitting sleds and tackling dummies.

The guy is not aggressive because he's on a banned substance. He's aggressive because he wants to inflict pain like its been inflicted on him.

So has it been revealed what was taken? I heard he failed both tests. Marion Jones failed one then passed the 2nd eliminating her from any wrong doing.

The best defensive players are always a bit pyscho. The better ones are looking to inflict pain. Seriously, look at any all-time greats at the defensive positions with maybe the exception of cornerback (Deion was sssooofffttt, although he is a borderline starting all-time CB).

Merriman's lawyer said it was a supplement that had an anabolic steroid in it. Which is why he tested postitive.
