Gotti on Roids
WATCH: Mob legend John Gotti didn't want grandson to be baseball player because 'you must take steroids,' in 1998
John Gotti was a successful mobster, and he knew a thing or two about what it took to be a successful athlete: use steroids.
The crime boss was seen and heard on a surveillance video recorded in 1998 - the same year that Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa both broke Roger Maris' single-season home run record - during his time in the federal penitentiary in Marion, Illinois telling his grandson that if he wanted to be an athlete, he had to take lots and lots of steroids.
"First of all, you got to be a good liar, a good lowlife, and an imbecile,” he said from behind plexiglass on a phone to his grandson. “You gotta take steroids. You must take steroids! And anybody that takes steroids is a garbage pail."
Fifteen years later, Gotti's remarks about steroid use proved to be true as baseball has become tainted with numerous drug scandals. There was BALCO in the mid 2000's, a Bay area lab which produced performance enhancing supplements for players such as Barry Bonds, who denied ever using steroids. Then the Mitchell Report of 2007 which named 89 former and current players who were tied to steroid use.
All generalizations are dangerous.

Re: Gotti on Roids
