You just know the firestorm is coming after Gary Player said the following during a live chat at ESPN.com.
This in response to the question: Do you still think that players on the PGA tour are taking performance enhancing drugs?
Said Player: I don't think it I know it.
I know of a professor who told me had been putting golfer on beta blockers for years. Two golfers admitted to me personally they were taking HGH. I advised them to stop taking it.
Every day you read about different sports men and women who have been taking it. They did a test on 104 baseball players and 104 were positive. The Olympic Committee virtually said they are concerned about the Tour de France cyclists taking it.
I would say in my opinion that there are at least 70 percent of athletes today on PEDs. The thing that is worst is that numerous school children who are taking the PEDs for various sports to excel.
You only have to see the countries who have been found taking steroids at the Olympics. Recently Sylvester Stallone went into Australia and in customs he opened up his bag full of steroids and sent him back to America. Movie stars are taking it for roles in movies.
We live in a world where if you don't take it you are at a disadvantage because the rewards are so high.
The sad thing is when they perform well, you don't know if it is authentic. That is the sad thing. I've seen many athletes, skinny, and then all of a sudden they are built like Tarzan.
It's a very sad world that this has to be in sports. And in life in general.
