Well what if you have all the technique down as a pro? I just always wonder if that little bit of extra power would help if added with the good snap. Lets say we have a guy who can drive about 450 and has to take 3's on 500-550 holes and all of a sudden can drive farther and make those 2's.

I know from experience that smoking pot DOES make me drive farther/more accurate, helps me select discs and angles to throw, and I make more putts. Sucks that I no longer partake of it. I think using drugs to get your mind right and better focus your concentration would help your game much more than "steroids." Just a thought

One is a younger guy so I guess for him he is still in the end of his filling out stage but the other is in his late 20's and jacked.
HAHA!!!! is this cause i made that joke in chat about Avery being juiced? i was really surprised that people took it seriously. the guy is a gym nut in the off season. hes a mesomorph/endomorph body type (i used to be hardcore into the body building bs) so he can gain muscle very quickly but hes also got some of the endo-flab. i highly doubt he juices. the money made in DG wouldnt even pay for the steroid regiment.

Currently taking 200mg testosterone, and I can say 1000 % that it is a miracle drug. Just for many people with real medical probs steroids improve quality of life. Think anyone that has seriously played competitve sports has done or contemplated it because they work and work amazingly.

Also, I take it for a medical problem. Think everyone thinks that drugs like HGH, Andro-gel, Testosterone is for cheaters etc or just for athletic uses. Sorry, at work and post didn't come out right.

Its a shame that athletes can't be supervised using these PROPERLY, because their rehab time would be reduced dramaticly. On a side note; has anyone else's upperbody slowly become "ripped", because my upperbody is slowly looking better and better. I don't work out, just throw, and throw, and throw.

Athletes can take cortisone injections, I just looked AT THE nfl banned substance list, lots of things but no cortisone. The reason a lot of athletes were hesitant to use cortisone in the past was due to the scar tissue that would accumulate. I don't know what kind of technological advancements have been made or if they have.
