tony-mandarich-steroidsTony Mandarich has admitted using anabolic steroids during his playing days in college.  It’s obivous that all NFL players use steroids, so why is this a surprise to so many people?  Mandarich used anabolic steroids and cheated steroid tests after the 1988 Rose Bowl.  Then again, which NFL players are NOT using steroids, can you name one? we can’t.

Tony Mandarich is just trying to pump up the mainstream crowd for his new book scheduled to release in March 2009, in which he details his steroid use in the NFL and his career.  Obviously he doesn’t have football, so he’s going to make money talking about steroids.

State News: Former MSU football player Tony Mandarich has admitted to using steroids and cheating on a steroid test administered in conjunction with the 1988 Rose Bowl, which the Spartans won.

Mandarich was an offensive lineman for MSU in the late 1980s and was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft in 1989. Mandarich, dubbed “The Incredible Bulk” by Sports Illustrated prior to the draft, was a bust in the NFL during his three seasons with the Packers.

Mandarich tells of his steroid use and the Rose Bowl steroid test during an interview on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL” that will air Wednesday at 9 p.m. Mandarich has a book scheduled to be released in March 2009 that is expected to detail his steroid use.

Mandarich, who had played for the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts, made the confession on a TV interview. However, he denied that he had used steroids during his NFL career but was hooked on alcohol, painkillers, and narcotics.
“I got to the point where it was a struggle to work out three or four times a week because the priority of getting high was above the priority of working out,” Mandarich said in the interview.

Mandarich was the first round draft pick of the Packers in 1989, second overall behind Troy Aikman and ahead of the third selection Barry Sanders. Aikman and Sanders have been elected in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Mandarich, meanwhile, is considered as one of the top 5 bust NFL draft picks of all time. He was dropped by the Packers from his four-year contract after three seasons on unimpressive performance. His rumored steroid use could also have been a factor.

Mandarich is releasing his autobiography in March.
