Pat and Kevin Williams- The Pro Bowl defensive linemen for the Minnesota Vikings were two of several players suspended for using Starcaps, a diuretic containing bumetanide, which is associated with attempting to hide steroid use among pro athletes. After originally warranting a suspension by the league, the players fought, and won, their argument and were able to play each game in the 2009 season.
Lou Ferrigno- Has never admitted using roids, but being linked with Schwarzenegger in the mid-70's in the Mr. Olympia competitions, when every body builder was juicing, it's almost a forgone conclusion. Have you seen him as the Hulk?
Hulk Hogan- In 1994, Hogan admitted to using anabolic steroids since 1976 to help gain size and weight for his wrestling career.
Arnold Schwarzenegger- The Cali Governor admitted to using PEDs as far back as 1967 during his Strong Man Competitions, writing that "steroids were helpful to me in maintaining muscle size. I did not use them for muscle growth, but rather for muscle maintenance."

Danny Bonaduce and Jose Canseco-
The two meatheads met in the ring during a 2009 Celebrity Boxing Match.
Bonaduce, a radio show host and former actor, highly praised steroid use, actually believing that the lack of steroids in wrestling is harmful to the business because they’re supposed to look like giants, and thinks it should be mandatory.
Former Bash-Brother Canseco admitted to using anabolic steroids in a tell-all book, "Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits & How Baseball Got Big." Canseco also sold-out his former ballplayers, claiming that up to 85% of players took steroids... dick.
Mark McGwire- Big Mac revealed he used performance-enhancing substances for almost a decade because they "helped him rehabilitate his body after injuries." Asked if he could have hit a since broken record 70 home runs in a season without them, McGwire didn't hesitate, saying, "Absolutely. Look at my track record as far as hitting home runs. They still talk about home runs I hit in high school. I was given the gift to hit home runs."
Alex Rodriguez- In 2009, Rodriguez was forced to admission after his name reportedly appeared on a list of 104 MLB players who tested positive for banned substances in 2003. "I'm guilty for a lot of things. I'm guilty for being negligent, naive, not asking all the right questions. And to be quite honest, I don't know exactly what substance I was guilty of using," he said.
Mickey Rourke- Rourke admitted he used the juice for his role as Randy in the movie The Wrestler. When asked about his training, which included working out twice a day with an Israeli cage fighter and chowing on seven meals a day to bulk up for the part, he said, "When I’m a wrestler, I behave like a wrestler."
Marion Jones- After initially denying reports of usage, in 2007 Jones finally acknowledged using roids while training for the 2000 Olympics, where she won five medals. She was to be banned from competition for two years, but swiftly retired later that year.
Sammy Sosa- On top of a corked-bat scandal in early 2003, Sosa's name appeared on the list of 104 players who tested positive in baseball's anonymous survey. Sosa is sixth on baseball's career home run list with 609, but he's almost a lock to never sniff Cooperstown.
Jason Giambi- In 2004, reports said Giambi admitted to using several different steroids during the off-seasons from 2001 to 2003, and injecting himself with HGH during the 2003 season. Before the 2005 season, Giambi apologized publicly to the media and his fans, although he never specifically said for what. In 2007, Giambi finally came clean for steroid use, saying, "We made a mistake. Maybe one day I'll talk about it, but not now." Wonder if the cool $47 million left on his contract had anything to do with keeping so quiet?
Lyle Alzado- Diagnosed with brain cancer, and passing away In 1992, the former NFL defensive lineman blamed the disease on his longtime steroid abuse. Before his death, Alzado admitted: "I started taking anabolic steroids in 1969 and never stopped. It was addicting, mentally addicting. Now I'm sick, and I'm scared. Ninety percent of the athletes I know are on the stuff. We're not born to be 300 pounds or jump 30 feet. But all the time I was taking steroids, I knew they were making me play better."
Ben Johnson- In 1988, Johnson beat Carl Lewis in the 100-meter final at the Olympics, lowering his own world record to 9.79 seconds. Problem was, dude's urine samples were found to contain Stanozolol, and he was disqualified three days later. He later admitted having used steroids when he ran his 1987 world record, causing that record to fall as well. Johnson and hundreds of other athletes have long complained that they used doping in order to remain on an equal footing with the other top athletes on drugs they had to compete against.

Dodgers before the 2009 season, making him the second highest paid player in baseball (behind only fellow roid user A-Rod), Ramirez earned a 50 game suspension after testing positive for using the female fertility drug chorionic gonadotropin. It's what steroid users commonly use to reduce the effects of coming off the juice.
Ken Shamrock- Shamrock, a UFC Hall of Famer, reportedly tested positive for three different anabolic steroids after a fight in 2009. The fighter was banned for the year, and fined $2,500.

Barry Bonds- After a career which included a record-setting seven MVP's and the all-time home run record, in 2007, Bonds was indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice regarding the investigation of BALCO.
