    The Union won't let its players get blood tested, which is reasonable. No labor union would subject their members to it.
    The NFL has been using blood tests for years. Did you actually read the article? It says so -

    The NFL has used preseason blood tests since at least 2006 for cholesterol and tryglycerates.
    Yes, but to test for HGH I presume they'd use the same random style testing that they do now, where players are tested 6-7 times per year on average(up to 6 random tests in the offseason.)If pilots, bus drivers, etc, are not subjected to blood tests, why should athletes be?

    And the current blood tests are scheduled blood tests for the sake of player health.

    The NFL needs to focus on getting a test developed which can trace it in urine, then the union will have virtually no case against it.

    Funny article about the current piss-testing.

    Pilots, bus drivers, etc. are not in a business where their success or failure is a direct result of that which HGH (and steroids) can make possible. That's why.

    The NFL is not in the business of developing tests. That's the playground of WADA.

    He said the NFL needs to get a test developed... I imagine he's talking about hiring an outside firm to do it, not the NFL itself.

    It's OK to admit someone knows more on the topic than yourself.
    Underlined: I was not referring to HGH tests, just drug tests in general. A professional who directly risks the lives of others every day by doing their job should be subjected to harsher, more invasive tests than a professional athlete(not that blood tests are a good method of detecting drug use in most cases, just like the HGH blood test.) Although I suppose you could stretch that NFL players risks their lives and those of the other men on the field.

    Considering I said that, yes, that is what I was talking about lol

    Re:NFL hopes to start testing for HGH

    Need to separate testing for workplace safety from performance enhancement testing.

    DOT and Nuclear Reg. Comm. have set standards for testing drugs of abuse under the guise of workplace safety.

    Performance enhancing drugs have a different track record and the laws aren't well developed.

    The IOC is one organization that has not done a credible job in that category.

    New rules need to be adopted and tested in the courts.

    It seems reasonable for the NFL and players union to establish and agree on a performance enhancing policy.

    They would then test it's legality when challenged in court, as it certainly will be.
    And hopefully it would evolve into an effective policy.

    And it's okay for you not to stick your nose into everything, trying to stir up the pot.

    Trust me - I know plenty on this subject. As I know Mr. A does. Which is why I wrote "WADA" rather than "World Anti-Doping Agency" because I knew he'd know what it meant.

    Who the hell really cares if some cat, who is paid to entertain me, is taking something to enhance his entertainment value?

    If it wasn't for the "Baseball Purest" who worry so much about stat comparrisons from one year to the other as a means to argue who was/is the better 2nd basemen of all time, we wouldn't even be having this discussion.

    In the end, roid up and let the good lord sort them out later.

    Are you really that myopic? What if the Vikings were to lose to a team with more (or better) PE-abusing players than ours? That wouldn't "hurt" you?
