Mitchell Report Open Thread

I know this is a baseball thing, but considering how the NFL has managed to brush this issue under the rug, I think it's worth discussing for those interested.  Considering the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year tested positive for a "banned substance" that we'll leave open to the imagination.

I'm curious, but do people just assume most football players are on steroids on figure who cares because it's a sport requiring huge bodies and involves such violent collisions?  I realize the NFL has had a drug testing policy for some time, but as with baseball, these policies don't allow blood testing which is needed to find HGH and other PEDs.

Anyways, feel free to discuss away.
