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.
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).
