Canadian Football League Bans Steroids, Still Allows 12th Man on Field

The CFL Players’ Union and league officials have finally solved the problem of steroids in Canadian football. Now all they need to do is figure out how to incorporate a fourth down and more Doug Flutie cameos.

According to TSN.ca (Canada’s answer to ESPN):

The league and the CFL Players' Association announced the ratification of a historic four-year collective bargaining agreement Tuesday. For the first time ever, the league will test players for performance-enhancing drugs, starting in 2011.

Apparently CFL players have been able to get away with steroid abuse for far too long, which threatened to hurt the credibility of a league that once had two of its nine teams named “The Roughriders.”

High scoring games, however, may be a thing of the past for Bluebomber and Eskimos fans. Ask any player who’s spent some time in Edmonton how easy kicking a rouge is without any chemically-induced help. It’s almost impossible!
