It's odd that you would single me out as one that keeps it going rather than a 3 person thing, especially considering I'm the one who's said let's just agree to disagree and end this like 6 times. But ok.

You said back on page two or three that you read that steroids improve your vision. I think we are all still waiting for the link.

I singled you out because Giants is way ahead and clearly doesn't need bases and WR only has 37 so he clearly won't make the list. It was just a joke that only made sense if applied to you, nothing personal about this argument.

I said I've heard/read that they improve your vision. Buff up on that reading comprehension. It's on pg 3.
I'm waiting on your proof that says it doesn't. Spoiler alert.....it isn't coming from either of us.
The bottom line is, which has been over and over, is that none of us know for sure.
Now Dr. Wrvwrwvrwrveres, I know you "think you know," but you've provided nothing but your opinion, and an article that only said some researchers believe it improves hand-eye coordination. So since none of us are doctors, and since none of us have proof either way, I'm going to stick with my opinion, and you're going to stick with yours......probably for the next 84 pages. We're comin Big0rt!

No worries. I haven't even looked in to what that bases thing is all about. :-D

So you are of the opinion that steroids help your vision, and you have nothing, nada, to back it up. You just pulled it out of thin air, and your sticking to it. Brilliant!

I think you guys should spend a few pages discussing what each of you mean by 'vision', because just about every player in the league has 20/20 eyesight either naturally, with corrective lenses, or Lasik surgery. So what is 'vision'? :-)

Well considering one of the side effects of excess testosterone is blurred/double vision and can even cause glaucoma, I'm pretty sure we aren't talking about about improved vision.

But vision in this case is Maris' inability to see the facts right in front of his face.

Since he is of the opinion that steroids increase your ability to see, I suggest he needs to try a few cycles
