Greg Garber has an article on ESPN.com about the NFL's ban of ephedrine after Kory Stringer's death and the fact that they are going to start testing for its use on July 1st....
How many players were using ephedra when the ban was announced? Giants trainer Ronnie Barnes estimated that 40 of his 53 roster players used it in some form. He was the only trainer at the time to go on record, and many around the league wondered if three-quarters of the team was a stretch. Apparently, not by much.

"I'm just going to base it on what I know with our team," the Rams' Anderson said. "I'll guarantee you that at least 50 percent of our players were taking a product that had the ephedra in it."

I bet some big name players get four game suspensions this year...this might actually make the Panthers competitive....
Ok...yeah, right, I wish....
