three questions

(1) Why is the Larry Izzo story buried on the back pages, while A-Rod's story - the same story - is front page?
(2) Will the commish suspend Izzo?  His admission of guilt certainly at least violates the personal conduct policy.  But we're betting the commish will let this one slide.  It is the Patriots after all.
(3) How did he evade detection?  And will there be a full investigation?  We doubt that.  The only thing that could come of it will be that the testing is soft.

There's an article floating around that Larry Izzo is going to testify that he took performance enhancing drugs back in 2003. (
And do you know what that tells me?
The the Patriots are still cheaters.  

Maybe he didn't get snared like his teammate Rodney Harrison.  But c'mon this is the commish's favorite team, the media darling.  The one that has the great record over the last decade.
And here it is in black and white, and soon to be sworn testimony.  At least in part, their record is based on cheating.
That further tarnishes anything they have done.
