The ongoing standoff between NFL players with WADA and its American arm, USADA, over human growth hormone testing, is becoming intense with each passing day.

“To me it’s clear that WADA is more interested in bullying us into a test than in scientifically supporting and justifying their testing protocol,” NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith said.

“That’s odd to me,” said Doping researcher Don Catlin, founder of the UCLA Olympic lab and the man who cracked the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative case. “I don’t understand it. Scientists with a good finding are usually crawling to get published in a peer-reviewed journal so the world can see it.”

Two House Democrats are urging Major League Baseball and the players union for implementing testing for human growth hormone and ban chewing tobacco by players in uniform and in public view.

Reps. Henry Waxman of California and Frank Pallone of New Jersey made those requests in a letter to Commissioner Bud Selig and Michael Weiner, executive director of the players union.

“The time to begin testing for HGH in baseball has arrived,” Waxman wrote, citing the use of blood testing for HGH in the Olympics.
