Editor's note: Great catch on this Stonewall15!

It really is sad. Our team was terrible last year. Yet, we have had our fair shair of players suspended for using performance enhancing drugs.

First it was David Vobora a few seasons ago. He has moved on, but he wasn't even a starter. He was Mr. Irrelevent for crying out loud, and HE was enhancing his performance with drugs? The natural, drug-free Vobora must have been god awful.

***Update: The incident was challenged in court, with a substantial monetary verdict being awarded to Vobora.***

Last year it struck again with Austin Pettis. He is being suspended for the first few games next season for enhacning his performance too. Granted, whether he was using or not doesn't affect his punt fielding skills, but his athleticism was mediocre at best. He was labeled a possession receiver coming out of college, and that's all he could manage being on drugs??? Pathetic.

Now the latest suspension. Our TE Brody Eldridge is being suspended four games for using PEDs. So sad... I liked Brody. I thought he had a spot on this team. However, we have nine tight ends and a bunch of talented rookies. Brody is only 25, but will he be able to out distance the rest of the TEs enough for the Rams to will keep him - despite his absence for the first 4 games?

Regardless, all the PED use is saddening and despicable. The Rams are struggling to become relevant. They do not need to have steroid users on the team. They need honest to goodness talent.
