IMO, it stemmed from jealousy. Sort of like a crusade by disgruntled, bitter former employees who felt they were wrongly released. So, they made a big deal out of the steroid usage, eventhough they participated in the lifestyle.
So to them, it eliminated a level playing field, passing off the idea that guys indeed were promoted based on their look. But to everybody else, it wasn't really that big of a deal, considering at that time and even in years after, steroid abuse wasn't the main killer.
