GOLIC EXPLAINS HIS STEROID USE
Former NFL lineman Mike Golic has addressed in further detail on his ESPN Radio show his use of steroids in 1987.
He says that he used them for 4-6 weeks in the offseason, after shoulder surgery.
"It was wrong, it was illegal. I did it illegally. . . . I worked out in a gym and you could get them anywhere you wanted at that point. And I did. And it was certainly wrong to do. But it was a point in the NFL when they weren't testing for it, so I had no worry of being tested for the steroids."
Golic says he quit because it made him feel weird.
What made us feel weird was the limp-wristed effort by Mike Greenberg to create the appearance that this is all old news.
Said Greenberg before Golic made his statements: "This is something that you've addressed so many times on the air that maybe to us it isn't a big deal. But I guess we can't blame everyone for not having listened to every minute of our show for eight years."
Time out, guys. If this is something that Golic has said "so many times on the air" over the last eight years, why did this exchange (as transcribed by Awful Announcing) occur last week?
Greenberg: You were a player in the National Football League for nine years.
Greenberg: And you were clean. You didn't use steroids.
Golic: No, no. I did try steroids. For about six weeks in an off-season. Yeah. When I had blown my shoulder out. I actually didn't do it for six weeks. I did it for a few weeks and stopped because it had kind of a bad effect as I was lifting.
Greenberg: Okay. Let's say for the sake of this discussion you did not.
If that's an accurate account of what happened just last week, then what in the hell was Greenberg talking about when he said that it's a known fact that Golic used steroids?
Greenberg now has zero credibility with us. (Of course, he already had zero credibility with us, but we finally have a good reason for it.)
