Investigators probing an alternative medicine doctor want to speak to at least nine current or former members of the Carolina Panthers about possible illegal steroid prescriptions, a Columbia newspaper reported.

Dr. James Shortt, a West Columbia physician, is under investigation for allegedly prescribing steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs, The State said in Sunday editions. The newspaper based its story on court records and sources speaking on condition of anonymity.

Sources familiar with the investigation told the newspaper that some of the players were on the Panthers team that competed in the 2004 Super Bowl. Neither the paper nor Hurney revealed the identities of the players.

This is something that I knew would happen, but was dreading the day the connections started getting made.

Oh yeah, i fully expect that. And I imagine that the majority of the allegations will be true, but there will also be some false accusations out there

You might want to watch 60 Minutes Wed. tonight (March 30 at 8PM). They have a report on this subject, and specifically, on three Carolina Panther players who had prescriptions filled for a banned steroidless than two weeks before they palyed in the 2004 Super Bowl.

It's good to see that this guy is getting his due. Now, if only someone sues him for ruining thier life, life would be justified.



A doctor at the center of a steroid investigation involving Carolina Panthers players was suspended by the state medical board, which called the practitioner a "serious threat" to public health.

The South Carolina Board of Medical Examiners said Dr. James Shortt prescribed the steroid testosterone to four unidentified male patients "in doses and frequencies that were extremely unlikely to have been prescribed with any legitimate medical justification."

The only way to stop this, is to nab it in the source which is the doctors.
