was he raw? was he a football player? why don't we hear or see about him like we used to when he was alive?

Typical equivocation re 'roids[edit]

In the last years of his life, as he battled against the brain cancer that eventually caused his death at the age of 43, Alzado asserted that his steroid abuse directly led to his final illness. This assertion has been disputed by some medical experts.

"Some medical experts?" Were there any that agreed? There have been NO oter cases of his form of brain cancer associated with steroid use. Let's see now, he drank, did coke, Lord knows what else, is known to have taken pituitary-derived growth hormone (the dangerous kind) and came down with are form of brain cancer, but chimed in on the anti-steroid campaign whipped up during the Reagan years. "Some medical experts" agreed with him? How about another line that the consensus in the steroid-using community is that Lyle was full of s**t.Skookum1 16:24, 18 July 2006 (UTC)[]

Attribution of quote at the end is no good[edit]

The quote at the end of the article doesn't seem to be backed up at all. It references a site called UsefulTrivia, but that site itself doesn't provide any references at all. The best I could determine was that this quote originally appeared in "an issue of Sports Illustrated" and repeated in "Total Football: The Official Encyclopedia of the National Football League, edited by Bob Carroll, Michael Gershman, David Neft, and John Thorn (New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1999)".

Does anyone know the original source? It would be more compelling. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.90.198.239 (talk) 13:51, 31 August 2011 (UTC)[]
