Double Standard Continues

Last year’s NFL Rookie of the Year tested positive for steroids. And while it has made some headlines, my guess is that it will be allotted about 45 seconds on PTI today.

Had this been the 2005 ROY of the NL (Ryan Howard), we would be subjected to endless hours of media scrutiny and criticisms of Bud Selig et al on what a mess baseball is.

An actual quote from an ESPN talking head – “I'm shocked and saddened by the news of Shawne Merriman's reported suspension for a positive steroids test.”
