Radford called in nearby police
agencies to help control the crowd.

Most were alcohol related...
ranging from open containers to

Steroid testing began in the

Players are randomly tested
several times before and during the
season.

Last year, less than two percent
of the tests were positive.

A player caught taking the
performance enhancing drug faces a 15
game suspension for the first offense
-- and this year, players will be
publicly identifed for their drug use.
