Steroids were legal in the 70's. Everyone used them. But of course, when it comes to steroids, it's only illegal when you win/succeed.

Cue hypocritical Anti-Steeler trolls.

Vindication?

New England was still busted for cheating. They broke the rules. They're still a bunch of lousy cheaters. But of course, logic and Boston don't mix.

But the 1970s Stoolers are the only team that has ever done steroids, past or present. They invented them.

Great point Ed...
Steroid use as always been stupid...but The NFL only began to test players for steroid use during the 1987 season, and started to issue suspensions to players during the 1989 season.

Lyle Alzado said that at least 90% of the NFL was takeing steroids in the late 70's. (Two notable exceptions were Jack Lambert & Jack Ham whom everyone agreed didnt participate)

Well, if he said he used them then I believe him.

I would like to point out before anyone tries to discredit the Steelers success of the 1970's that back then steroids were not a banned substance by the NFL nor were they deemed illegal drugs by the United States government. They were readily available to most pro athletes, so it wasn't like the Steelers could get them and another team could not.

Definately interesting reading and makes you think for sure.
It appears the old school players/coaches did not have an understanding on how to benefit from steroids in all cases. Also if they were using back then, makes you wonder looking at the physical attributes of players in the 70,s compared to now days.

Wow....what is next???? Joe Namath admitts to drinking alcohol in the 70's?!?!?!?!?

Arnold Schwartzenegger admitts that there was steroid use in bodybuilding in the 70's?!?!?!?!?!?

Face it, its been part of the game that the league never enforced and let it happen until probably the early to mid 90's. Any highschool kid could get steroids in the 80's and 90's.

Lots of upside from a performance standpoint, but "caveat emptor"
