Anybody catch this movie. It was on cable this past weekend. I saw parts of it. According to one of the major distributors/sellers in the Miami area, NFL teams were some of the highest users in the 70's. In particular he named the Raiders, the Dolphins (including the 72 team) and the Steelers. According to one of the guys interviewed the entire Steelers OL was doing coke with him the night before the Super Bowl against Dallas.

Kind of puts drug and steroid use in todays sports in perspective.

What perspective? That teams of old used performance dehancing drugs while the guys making 100x as much money today use performance enhancing drugs?

It's treated differently today. If it came out that the entire Pats OL was doing coke before the Steelrs game it would be a huge scandal. It was par for the course back then.
