I thought I'd see how many NFL doping stories there were over the past week versus how many doping stories related to the 2010 Winter Olympics were posted to the news.

NFL Doping Feb 1 - Feb 7 2010: about 164 stories.

Vancouver Doping Feb 1 - Feb 7 2010: about 2,870 stories.

If you're curious about cycling: 284 hits from this past week for "armstrong doping" and 529 hits for "cycling doping. Even tour de france doping has 536 hits, and that event is five months away.

Some people accuse editors, journalists and bloggers of soft pedaling the doping issue in professional cycling, but in American football nobody is even asking the question.

(I ran these searches Sunday night - some of the values might have changed by the time you read this post).

Amen, brother!

When friends ask me how I can like cycling with all of the doping, at least I can say that cycling at least tests their athletes.
Of course, people don't use the term "doping" for football players. For instance, when I used the search term "NFL steroids", I got over 1.3 million hits.
@Peter - for the past 7 days?
"NFL steroids" - 319 hits for the same period Feb 1 - 7.
