Bill romanowski has a compulsive need to be the best at whatever he does. He wants to be the hardest worker. He wants to be the smartest. He wants to be the fiercest. But above all, he wants to be the best football player there has ever been. And this leads me to believe that he is his own protagonist. What he does to ensure that he is the best, may or may not be outside of the rules. He was involved in a steroid scandal, but no one could prove his innocence/guilt. But the thought still lies in peoples' minds.The act of taking steroids may justify the means for a little while. But evebntually the steroids will break down the muscle that he so relentlessly worked for. His goal of being the best was his motivation for possibly taking steroids, and his ends could not justify the means.
