Topday my mom, uncle, and I were talking about the issue of Sosa using steroids. My mom, being a lab tech, has always said that Sosa has always had a yellow tint in his eyes, which is a direct cause of steroid use.

Was wondering if anyone who has seen Sosa up close can affirm this.

Ever since Jose Canseco started this steroid controversy, I have wondered about the possibility of Sosa taking steroids. The more I see of him, the more I am convinced he is using them. Starting in 1998, when he and McGwire broke Maris' homerun record, Sosa started to put on increased amounts of muscle mass, and I don't think this was the result of intense weight-lifting.

The next time I see Sosa during an interview, I'm going to look closely at his eyes. If he is in fact using, I would love to hear the Cubs and their ridiculous fans try to defend him. Think about it. Cubs fans act as though Sosa is the greatest player in the history of the game. Imagine what would happen if we discovered he was a fraud.

Jesus M, it's not like I've never heard any popular music in my lifetime! Even though Jackson's a freak now, Thriller is old school, and everybody liked Michael Jackson at one point in their lives. I talk about Alice in Chains all the time, they were "pop."
I just hate most of it now, ya see... :D:

Steriod users don't have a yellow tint in their eyes unless they also have jaundice from hepatitis. Being a gym rat, I've seen many on roids and no yellow.
Imao, Sammy has taken them.

Nothing, and they would defend him. They would argue that many players take them and that its part of the game or some BS like that. Trust me, even if Sammy got caught I don't think any media in Chicago would slam him one way or the other. In fact I am sure the Trib would defend him.

If it took Canseco for you to take notice of some of these Roid-heads, you were simply feigning ignorance.

You don't get neck sizes and forearm sizes like Sammy and Mark without Roids. Sorry, doesn't happen in a 3 month per year lifting season. Let alone Sammy's pock-marked face...

Not only did Sosa have yellow-type eyes, he had acne on his face for a while...which is also a symptom of steriod use. I guarantee he took steroids, no doubt.

That's interesting, because Carl Lewis specifically mentioned the eye coloration when he talked about Ben Johnson using them at the olympics. He even said he knew Johnson was on them at the olympics before he tested positive because of the color of Johnon's eyes.

This may be a stupid question. Are there different types or isotopes of steroids ? This may or may not cause eye discoloration.

There was a picture comparison done on here before that really shows something happened between being on the White Sox and present day. His face went from slender to puffy almost over night. Also, I believe someone here pointed out how he gaind the muscle mass rather quickly and after the age of 30. I have a really tough time believing that at that age someone can put on that much muscle mass that quickly without "help."

Wrong. Jaundice and yellow eyes from 'roids are two different things.

I'm not seeing anything on this site about yellowed eyes, but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. It probably just doesn't happen to everyone on steroids.

It was really silly because it was an old, well known, easily detectable steroid at the time. It was known for causing yellow eyes. I'm not sure about Nandrolone, which is most likely Sham-ME's preferred "vitamin".

At least we expose Canadian cheeters, unlike the U.S. Anyway don't get me started.

P.S. Ross Rebagliatti is a hero. :smile:
