I don't mind high end performers, but these drugged up players do hurt the semi-realism OOTP was supposed to represent.
I will take offense for equating PEAK cards with steroids and thus cheating. They are card with stats like any other, and using them is fair and legit. Perhaps the two gentlemen could find a way to deal with them or get these cards themselves instead of beating the same thoroughly dead horse again and again in this thread.
