"Dr. X desn't sell the drugs (THG, a.k.a. the clear) to athletes, though; he prefers to deal with distributors. 'The users can't be trusted, even though they have thier (reputations) to lose because--guess what? They're users. They'll lie, cheat, steal, kill their grandma to get what they want.'...'I know my stuff is the best out there. I hear who's working with who. I know who's winning.'...'Here is this guy (Jason Giambi) with all the money in the world who's taking something you can find at Gold's Gym? You take Deca (a steroid) today and come back in 2006, and you're gonna pop (test positive). A guy on my stuff could walk into the test with a needle in his ass and not worry."... 'If the NFL wants to test for every known steroid, that's more than 100 tests per player--32 teams, 53 players, 100 tests; and they aren't cheap. And that's for known substances. I know there's 10 they don't know about.'" -- 4.25.05 Will Carroll, Sports Illustrated, The Creator (Will Carroll is coauthor of The Juice, which is in stores now)
