Bill Romanowski is launching a line of performance supplements.
Wonderful, just what we need, more untested, unproven and unregulated supplements for GNC to offer on their already crowded shelves.
Not overly interesting or news worthy.
But one line in the story is very interesting.
Romo shares some very similar experiences with Barry Bonds. Both were connected to intimately to BALCO. Both were accused of using "The Clear", which later turned out to be a steroid called THG. Oh, and of course Romo tested positive for THG. Barry never did.
So, both share accusations of connection, but only Romo has had a positive test.
Barry has been demonized and flat out convicted by the media in relation to these accusations.
This is how the media characterizes Romo:
Romanowski, who played for the 49ers, Eagles, Broncos, and Raiders, retired at the end of that season, and set out to reverse the effects of years of violent collisions. He had strengthened his body throughout his NFL career with supplements -- including THG and ephedrine -- that sometimes straddled the line of legality, and Romanowski hoped he could build up his mind as well.
So, the guy that has been insinuated in the BALCO investigation is forever tainted and convicted by the media. The guy that tested positive is characterized by the media as having "straddled the line of legality".
Guess the media just can't help but support and spin positive for a guy that so enjoys spitting in the faces of Negro players.
