HGH Use In The NFL

31 May

Guest Writer: Robert McSain

Anyone who follows sports knows that so many people testing positive for human growth hormones have hit baseball hard. The sport has lost a lot of credibility, and it has taken them a while to clean up everything in general. While HGH is talked about a lot surrounding baseball, it is largely overlooked in football. However, there are plenty of signs that the usage runs rampant in the league.

The NFL has really grown into America’s past time, as people tune in every Sunday to watch their favorite teams and their favorite fantasy football players. That is just one reason why some people believe any HGH controversy is swept under the rug as quickly as possible. There have been reports from anonymous former players and people within the NFL that HGH use has been around for a while, and it is not really going away.

Back in 2013, there were reports from anonymous sources inside the NFL that as many as 10 to 15 players on each team used some type of performance enhancing drug. There have certainly been players who have tested positive for substance abuse, but those numbers would indicate that far too many are getting away with using HGH to their advantage.

The talk about drugs in the NFL seems to be surrounding marijuana at this point in time. Commissioner Roger Goodell seems to be close to approving a change in the rules, but he has been pretty quiet about HGH testing. The league and the NFL Players Association seem to be on different pages when it comes to HGH testing and punishments being handed out. It has been an ongoing issue going back all the way to 2011, and there is no answer in sight.

Until the NFL really cracks down on HGH, fans are generally going to overlook anyone who tests positive for essentially cheating. Baseball made it a huge issue, and now it is largely out of the game and those who test positive take a huge hit in credibility not to mention their paycheck.

Houston We Have A PROBLEM

20 Dec

Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, the Houston Texans got into another fight. This time the fight was between teammates. In the fourth quarter down by 21, Brian Cushing and Antonio Smith got into an argument and proceeded to get physical. It is unclear what caused the altercation. I think its probably Cushing being upset with the play of his defensive teammates. Nevertheless, the video of the fight is below.

Houston’s Merry-go-round Backfield

30 Aug

The Houston Texans backfield has been a huge disappoint. Last year Steve Slaton had hugely a disappointing, fumble prone season. So going into the season the Texans coaching staff was looking for someone to take the job. Recently RB Arian Foster has stepped up to the plate during the preseason. Thus, he is the likely starter when the Texans open the season September 12th against the Colts.
