Stan, you’re the godfather of concerns.
Who knows where this will lead. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said Richard Thomas did not provide specific player names or indicate when the supposed sales occurred.
“Richard Thomas told sheriff’s narcotics detectives when he was asked if he had sold steroids to professional athletes, ‘Name the sport - if they played it, I sold it,’ ” Judd said in a statement. “Then Richard Thomas went further and specifically mentioned two professional sports teams from the Washington, D.C., area whose players he had sold steroids to - the D.C. Nationals baseball team and the Washington Capitals hockey team. While he stated to detectives that he sold steroids to professional athletes on those teams, he did not mention any specific players’ names.”
Judd said Polk County detectives have yet to uncover any evidence to support Richard Thomas’ claims that he distributed to athletes but said an investigation is ongoing.
Consider this, though - the Nationals and Caps are not two names somebody is going to pull out of a hat - or use simply to buy him some leverage with investigators.
I wouldn’t be surprised if, when Richard Thomas said he sold steroids to players from the Washington Nationals and Washington Capitals, sheriff’s deputies looked at each other and said, “Who?”
