Use of opioids raises different questions involving treatment of pain that could be job related, not unlike the questions asked about how much management knew, should have known and/or refused to know about performance-enhancing drugs.

Beyond all the tributes to the former teammate and opponent, it was good that journalists didn't blow off investigating the sudden, mysterious death of a young professional athlete out of respect to his family.
Sorry, the part with the Pittsburgh Parrot cracks me up.
