    Sweeney sued the Chargers after his retirement for concealing the nature and the effects of the drugs that the team was feeding some of the players, especially linemen and linebackers, including steroids and other stuff they were told to take. Sweeney eventually got addicted to both amphetimines and barbiturates. During camp after he was traded to the Redskins he came into the dorm jacked up and liquored up. He walked into his room, where his roommate was sleeping and emptied a revolver into his own bunk. It was fifty-fifty that he shot his bunk instead of his roomy's.

    He was here for the saddest part of Charger history. It was the biggest drug scandal in the history of team sports. Bigger than the roids in baseball because it involved most of the team. Other teams had the same problem, but they didn't get caught red handed and the NFL just didn't want the matter pursued any further. It was what triggered the era of drug policy.
