People talk like players of the past were perfect angels who always followed the rules. My opinion is, if you subjected them to the scrutiny that todays players are under, you might find some pretty interesting things.
You might want to find some evidence before suggesting that players in the 1920's were on similar substances to steroids. This is an example of the " 'roid scare" going to far.
Suggested no such thing. Simply asked a question if it could be proven they weren't. Everyone nowdays seems to talk as if they have evidence they weren't doing anything wrong back then. The fact is we'll never know.
