Read it over and over and now I believe it is the exact opposite of what you are saying. He says "if what I'm seeing on this clip is true will really make me reconsider". Pretty easy to understand that part.
Agreed...nobody would feel more slighted than a player who's busted his azz (legitimately) for 3 straight seasons now only to have the end results be decided on critical calls at critical moments in every single game (plus the Saint's game). You don't think that stings more with the players themselves?
Bowman HAS to be ambiguous here naturally, otherwise this story would blow up on NFLN and SC but...you can read between the lines. And these players know this stuff happens esp. by the time they get to the professional level (PED propositions, betting, pay-offs, etc.).
Like Harbaugh's comments in the media re: roid-use in Seattle; you don't think we ALL know they are roided out over there (they're damn motto is BIGGER-FASTER-STRONGER-LOUDER). Helloooooo...but we hear you Harbaugh, we hear you LOUD and clear!
