    Football guys, help me remeber this player's name

    For some reason I thought about this guy they showed us in my high school P.E. I think, he was a lineman for the Raiders in the 70's, i think. Anyway he was an avid steroid user and supposedly (based on the P.E. class video) died as a direct result of this. Does anyone know who I'm talking about?

    He was a non stop steroid user, always bridged cycles and never took a break. Bad ass football player though, one of my idols.

    I believe that was Bob Golic.

    Good God, that's pretty bad man. He must have spent a quarter of his salary on juice.

    When you mention roids to anyone that remembers the story, that is what they revert back to. His ignorance gave juice a bad name and because he abused it he paid the ultimate price.
    On the flip side, if anyone remembers when the story about Arnold using juice came out, it was a short lived story.
    Why? Because he was smart and did not abuse it. Therefore, it has not cost him his life making the story not juicy enough for the media.

    Sorry guys, just my .02.
    I was just gonna say something like that bro. I know you guys love the man but he is one of the main reasons Im having trouble telling my wife about my use. Guys who abuse it like him make us all look bad. 16 years non stop come on now. The guy was an animal on the field and I respect that but he had to know it was gonna hurt him later. I think his story is the thing most non users think about when they think of steroids . That makes use all look bad IMO.

    Can someone become addicted (psychologically) to gear?

    You can become psychologically addictive to anything, IMO.

    Alzado also used growth hormone ....Not the synthetic that we see today....But a human version from the pituitary of cadavers! Apperently it can be infected with a bacteria that may attack the brain.

    Thats how I heard it from some guys in the know.

    So everybody using d-bol, test and deca ....don't go ordering your pine box just yet unless you find some very old HGH. LOL

    I wouldn't be so sure he died of brain cancer. I think it might have been the HGH(jacobs krutzfeld disease) that did it. I personally don't think the sauce can cause brain cancer even if you abuse it the way he did. I also heard rumors he died of AIDS and blamed the juice to keep it hush hush.

    This has also been the roumor in gay circles, that he was a "playa" in some lengthy gay relationships in and around LA with another famous athlete. I have seen pix of him coming out of a noted gay establishment in West Hollywood.

    I second that. I justed wanted to know his name when I started this thread. I am going to conduct my own research on the man, as should everyone else. I appreciate everyone's opinion, but if its not a solid fact lets leave it alone.

    its very possible to get addicted to juice...because picture this... you are on a cycle of deca , test, and dbol ..and on your final week, you are just fuckin huge..enormous with beast like strength..well, when you go off with clomid, you will lose ALOT of that size do to the water..then comes the depression because guys aren't as big as they were and they want to have that mass. so there comes the depression. just a little food for thought

    no mud throwing bro, lyle played the other side of the fence, no doubt. doesnt diminish his legacy at all. he didnt die from aas, if that where the case, the guys from the golden era would have dropped dead years ago. it was a huge ordeal when he died(the cause of death). he shrivled up to nothing, but had all of his thought processes and wasnt stricken with a brain tumor by a long shot. it could have been a number of things, but aas use did not kill lyle alzado.

    Exactly, AAS use was not the cause of his death. He did have cancer, most likely caused by HIV+/AIDS.
