Well, we really could have done without this happening. He says it was inadvertent:

Quote :
"I apologize to my teammates, coaches and the entire steelers family," Gilbert wrote. "Regretfully I inadvertently took a banned substance. I promise to come back in great shape and will be ready to play when my suspension is over."

Interesting stats from Gerry Dulac at Pittsburgh Post Gazette:

Quote :
Just FYI: Steelers average 112.3 yards rushing and have allowed 5 sacks when Chris Hubbard is RT starter. They average 90.2 yards rush and allowed 8 sacks w Gilbert. Numbers based on splitting stats in KC after Gilbert aggravated hamstring injury in 2nd qtr and did not return.

Tbh I'm not worried about Hubbard, he's done a good job while in. Gilbert has been playing hurt all year. Maybe 4 weeks off and he'll be in top form again

I don't doubt he could've taken it inadvertently. I know that's a common excuse, but honestly it wouldn't be too hard to do just that. These guys are always taking supplements, anything they can to help improve their performance. Anything to give them that extra boost. I work around a lot of guys that used to be athletes, and some are bodybuilders, they're always pounding down new supplements and trying new ones. With the market so proliferated with supplements from a billion different companies I think it'd be easy to take something and mistakenly take something you shouldn't have. Gilbert's been around for awhile now, and to my knowledge he's never taken anything before, so I'm inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt.

In the age of cell phones, and agents with multi-million dollar clients, shouldn't they simply pick up the phone and call their agent or at least a team doctor before trying something?

The question I have is: how long has he been using this substance? Was it something he just started taking to perhaps help heal, or has he been juicing all season and just got caught?

How about checking with the team doctors and trainers before ingesting any supplement.....just to be sure.  

Nowadays with all of the product info available at your fingertips there are NO legitimate excuses.

So I inadvertently put hops, barley, malt, and rice in my water, consumed it and some how I got drunk!

I didn't mean it!
