and I basically just interrupted him and said, ‘Your life as a baseball player is over with. Now what you decide to do with the rest of your life — that’s the decision that you have to make. You and a number of other athletes have lost a whole generation of kids. Now, they’re going to be experimenting with PEDs because you guys have been successful doing it. What are you going to do to try to repair that?’?”
I told him he could really make a difference in a lot of kids’ lives.
Who's Cris Carter?
I assumed that Badfinger guitarist Joey Molland was chuffed that the group’s 1972 hit, “Baby Blue,” was played in the last scene of the “Breaking Bad” finale.
Molland acknowledged my usage of U.K. slang for “delighted” with a hearty laugh before remarking, “You could say that.”
Molland said he didn’t see the AMC show live. “I’ve seen the episode since. I recorded it actually for my son, who’s a big fan of the series,” said Molland. “Anyway, it’s great news for us. Knockout. The band will get all the royalties due. It’s all handled through our accountants in London. Needless to say, myself and all the families of the members — because I’m the only one who’s alive — are very excited. Chuffed, you might say. It will make a big difference to everybody’s lives, especially Peter’s family [Pete Ham], of course, who wrote the song. I’m just glad they chose our record! It was a big hit for us back in the day, and here it is a hit again. Fantastic.”
Holland, who lives in a west suburb with one of the two sons he and his late wife, Kathie, raised here, currently performs with “Joey Molland’s Badfinger Concert Band.” His new record, “Return to Memphis,” is a tribute to the city that made the music he listened to as a young chap.
Your life as a baseball player is over with
An NFL player lectures a baseball player about steroids... and this is reported by a media outlet completely unironically, with a straight face.
I wish I could say I was surprised...
I think with the rampant amp abuse in the 70's and 80's MLB and it's ex-players would do more of a service by explaining how they stopped using them.
Cris Carter and a number of other athletes have lost a whole generation of kids. Now, they’re going to be experimenting with ecstasy, cocaine, and marijuana because Carter was successful doing it.
Carter had a falling out with coach Buddy Ryan and was a surprise cut following the pre-season. Carter later admitted that Ryan released him because of alcohol and drug abuse, including large amounts of ecstasy, cocaine and marijuana, and credits his former coach with helping him turn his life around as a result.
Now, they’re going to be experimenting with ecstasy, cocaine, and marijuana because Carter was successful doing it.
Cris Carter is on ESPN at present day and Von Miller will return from a steroid suspension this weekend. I expect the same tirade on him on Monday Countdown.
not that there's a shortage of NFL guys that Carter hasn't touched.
Did Carter have a drug problem, or am I reading too much into some of the comments in this thread?
Wikipedia does not so advise.

Do you have the right Cris (not Chris) Carter Ray? Look in the Eagles section. Money shot;
I've only read/heard of a link to marijuana and amps (which is what landed him in the program). The suspension was for trying to interfere with the sample collection or some such thing. (Tried to get the collector to sub in a clean sample or something.)
That is really unbelievable that he'd actually mount a high horse
the allegation that the commissioner has violated baseball's collective bargaining agreement in order to "make an example of Mr. Rodriguez … to gloss over Selig's past inaction and tacit approval of the use of performance enhancing substances in baseball … in an attempt to secure his legacy as the 'savior' of America's pastime."
