Interesting article on ESPN.....

The amazing athletes of the National Football League -- bigger and stronger than ever before -- are dying young at a rate experts find alarming, and many of the players are succumbing to ailments typically related to weight. The heaviest athletes are more than twice as likely to die before their 50th birthday than their teammates, according to a Scripps Howard News Service study of 3,850 professional-football players who have died in the last century.

Do I sense a note of sarcasm in your post?

I think you are probably right, some of these instances stem from the use of steroids or another performance inhancing supplement. The other thing a lot of people are talking about is the recent increase in pressure to get and remain HUGE. I do not remember the numbers but there used to be very few players over 300 lbs. now it is almost a prerequisite. As we all know there are many health risks involved for people who weight this much.
