How long has Hank Steinbrenner been running the Yankees? And how long should it take before you can start to throw bricks at other sports?
Well, I guess it is close to the same amount.
Hanky-poo is Daddy’s boy. He has now taken over the richest baseball franchise there is and I guess he is tired of seeing his players getting slammed for cheating. Even the ones that have admitted it.
He came out against the NFL today: "Everybody that knows sports knows football is tailor-made for performance-enhancing drugs," AP quoted Steinbrenner as saying last night. "I don't know how they skate by."
Let me tell you how (According to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello):
- The NFL has had year- round random testing with immediate suspensions since 1990.
- They have conducted approximately 12,000 steroids tests a year.
That is enough for me. Of course, I am sure there are those out there that abuse it, and it would be naïve to think that the NFL has had no users (Look at Bill Romanowski) but at least they have taken steps to stop it.
The top-brass of the MLB doesn’t seem to want it cleaned up. The NFL at least tries.
Really, Hank, go back to playing pinochle.
