Let's see, looks like a Tight End, runs like a Wide Receiver, uncontrollable rage exhibited when he assaulted an airport gate agent, and repeated injuries to his tendons? Well, I really can't imagine that he was on steroids . . . :rolleyes:


Report: Injured Boston now facing steroid suspension
Dec. 5, 2004

NEW YORK -- Miami Dolphins receiver David Boston, who has missed the entire season with a knee injury, is appealing a four-game suspension after testing positive for steroids, Fox Sports reported Sunday.

Neither the NFL nor the Dolphins would comment on the report.

Boston, obtained by Miami in a trade with San Diego in the offseason, injured his knee in August and is on injured reserve.

Boston pleaded no contest to a charge of driving under the influence of drugs in March 2002 while playing for Arizona. Signed by San Diego in the 2003 offseason, Boston was suspended for one game last year for conduct detrimental to the team.

He was arrested in October in Vermont, where he is rehabilitating, on charges of assaulting an airport gate agent. He is scheduled to appear in court on that charge this month.

The Cardinals' first draft choice in 1999, Boston's best season was 2001, when he had 98 receptions for 1,598 yards and eight touchdowns. After signing with the Chargers before last season, he had 70 catches for 880 yards and seven scores, but was dealt for a sixth-round draft choice because of run-ins with coach Marty Schottenheimer.

At first, I forgot what forum this was and thought Chi, insane Yankee fan that he was, was trying to smear the Sox and their hard-earned championship.

That'll teach me. ;)

Oh don't you worry, Catgrad, I do think the city of Boston is on drugs . . . just not performance enhancing ones. :p

I don't think he got those guns from eating his cheerios every morning. Just my humble opinion . . .

I remember when the Cards drafted him, all the talk was about what a great guy he was, upstanding citizen, team player, etc. Then he turned into a complete *******.

I still give him props though because his touchdown catch in the Rose Bowl likely kept ASU from having a national championship season. :)

I thought the same thing that Catgrad did.

I was in SD last summer (03) and they Paper had a peice on Boston and how dedicated he was to his workout regime. They had his diet and schdule and they were saying how his diet and work ethic got him the body he has today. So according to that writer Free Range Eggs make your forehead grow.
