Re: On the declining quality of the ORG
I find myself coming back here more often than I would like lately. I remain concerned about the ORG -- mostly because of the continual baseless speculation about PED use. Interested what others think about it.
Personally, I expect more than just the use of dubious statistical "trends" to support accusations of serious crimes. I would think that this board would be beyond the dreck I run into in places like ProFootballTalk and ESPN. The fact that we live in the "steroid era" does not constitute a warrant for unfounded speculation -- and throwing around rumors undercuts the high quality of a lot of the other discussions taking place on this board.
I regularly see the mods intervening when the subject of player's body weight comes up, and I see no reason why this issue should be any different. PED accusations -- without hard evidence -- are one of the worst examples of circular logic and the most consistent sources of animosity on this board.
