NFL Could Begin Blood Testing Players for HGH in Days

The NFL wants to have HGH testing, but the players union has concerns about the testing.

While I think most of us agree that drug testing is needed, it is going to be interesting to see this process of debate about how to test.

John Parkinson of ABC Sports takes a look at the discussion here: NFL Could Begin Blood Testing Players for HGH in Days

Here is an excerpt: "Representatives from the NFL Players Association and Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the NFL, sat down with two top lawmakers from the House Oversight and Government Reform committee today in order to reach an agreement to begin testing as soon as possible.

“We’re not guaranteeing any outcome except there was an agreement to begin testing immediately,” said Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the chairman of the committee. “The other aspects of what you do with the test will be resolved over the next many weeks and we’ve agreed on a bipartisan basis to have the committee play a role if necessary with getting parties together again.”
