hockey-steroidsIs hockey (NHL) the next target for congressional steroid probes? possible. It seems that a few representatives from NHL have been called into numerous meetings in political arenas to answer questions about possible anabolic steroids use as well as human growth hormone (HGH) use. Will this amount to new probes into Hockey/NHL instead of baseball steroid probes? we don’t know for sure. But, to be fair, the steroid probes should be pushing to target NFL players (if the true nature is to get to the bottom of steroid use) as NFL has the highest rate of Anabolic steroid and HGH use in any sport, just 2nd to bodybuilding. On any given day, you will find an NFL player (from any team) jacked up with at least 1000mgs of testosterone and at least 5-10 IUs of human growth hormone.  Why is NFL not on the target roster of steroid probes YET? simply because NFL is a big money maker, between the many football teams there is over $1,000,000,000 USD in revenue (that’s over 1 billion USD)

NHL Hockey and steroids discussion:

 ”The alleged benefits of steroid use — significant large muscle development – are not consistent with playing hockey at the highest level of the sport, and the resulting bulkiness attributable to steroid use simply is not the desired characteristic of skilled NHL players.”

NFL and why steroids will NEVER cause a problem for American Football:

 The National Football League is the most valuable and profitable team sport in the world. This year the average team is worth $733 million, a 17% increase over last year. Operating income (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the 32 teams came in at $851 million on revenue of $5.3 billion, an operating margin of 16%.
