No testing protocol has been finalized by the NFL and the NFLPA even though testing for human growth hormone will start during the 2011 season.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell briefly addressed the situation and said, “If the population study was the only thing in the way from us reaching an agreement, we would have an agreement.”

“Let me put it that way.  We are prepared to do that if that resolves the issue.  I sent an e-mail to [NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith] before I left, and unfortunately, our meetings sort of crossed, but HGH was on that list and I expect by the end of the week I will be speaking to him about it again,” NFL Commissioner added.

The NFLPA has made a proposal regarding an HGH testing protocol after a meeting with two members of Congress that resulted in an apparent commitment to commence the collection of blood samples for the purposes of HGH testing.

The proposal details are contained in an item posted at ProPlayerInsiders.com, an official licensee of the NFLPA.

However, the agreement creates the false impression that no agreement on HGH testing has been reached as the NFLPA had agreed only to eventually “discuss and develop” the procedures for testing.

Good news for retired athletes who consumed steroids and stayed activeAccording to a paper presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Session, it has been revealed that professional footballers who have large body size are not prone to any risk of cardiovascular disease. However, the message was presented in a cautionary as well as hopeful tone but there certainly is good news for retired pro footballers.

Even though many pro footballers are known to have consumed steroids during their active years, it does not increase one’s risk of developing such a disorder. The study was conducted on a good 201 former NFL players in Dallas, Miami, Atlanta and San Francisco.

The condition of these players were then compared to those at the Dallas Heart Study and the Aerobics Center Longitudinal Study in which the Coronary arthrosclerosis was determined with the help of digital tomography measurements of the coronary artery calcium. The research brought to light that there is no difference in the amount of sub-clinical levels of arthrosclerosis in the ex-footballers as well as the ones kept in controlled environment. In this research, even the ethnicity and the lineman status was considered. This means that 46 percent of NFL players and 48 percent of Aerobic Centre Controls had no difference in the CAC scores or cardiovascular risk factors.

  How to Elude Doping Tests

steroids_sportsThe professional sports scene is constantly rocked by news of elite athletes using performance-enhancing drugs like steroids. Among the recent popular athletes who have become more controversial because of steroid use is Tammy Thomas, the Olympic cyclist who has been found guilty of perjury just last month because of steroid use. Barry Bonds is likely to face trial next year for similar crimes. The Greek weightlifting team joined the roster of those unfortunate juiced souls who failed drug screening.

Athletes may have the talent to dodge an incoming blow or tackle a feisty opponent, but they are really having a hard time in eluding drug screening. Many grapple for a way to keep their steroid use a secret. The following are just some of the routes athletes take to avoid detection. Remember that these are not foolproof means – there is always the risk of being caught while you’re on steroids.

• Tell your team doctor to write you a prescription. This the advise of steroid sage David Jacobs. Jacobs, a former bodybuilder, is now under probation for supplying steroids to NFL players. According to Jacobs, he has taught several NFL players on how to elude drug screening. He said the athletes should ask their team doctors to prescribe them finasteride, a drug used to treat baldness. Jacobs said, “The excuse they did it under was that the players were losing their hair because they were taking their helmets on and off,” Finasteride is not among NFL’s banned substances.

• One of the classic methods of dodging doping tests is to discontinue use of steroids before a test. However, the success of this technique relies on the type of steroids you use. Keep in mind that injectable steroids typically remain active much longer than their oral counterparts. You might have a problem also if the tests are conducted randomly.

• You can use compounds that disguise, decrease, or delete steroid metabolites. These compounds include urisoric agents, corticosteroids, estrogens, oral contraceptives, and various diuretics.

  Steroid ‘Teacher’ Gets Probation

David Jacobs steroidsDavid Jacobs’s has led an interesting and exciting life. He was a former Texas bodybuilder, a former marine, a fitness guru, a self-taught chemist, then a self-appointed teacher for steroid-using NFL players.

Jacobs has recently been slapped with probation by a Texas court. He’s been a conduit of a 1000 bottles of anabolic steroids and a 100 bottles of HGH per month, a report says.
The raid on his Plano residence was dubbed as “one of the largest steroid distribution ring in the US’.

Jacobs, 35, and his associates were suspected of providing high-grade steroids to NFL players, professional bodybuilders as well as police officers. Federal authorities are continually finding links on Jacob’s vast network to anti-aging clinics in many states including those operating in Florida and New York, which catered to professional athletes. There is evidence that links Jacob’s steroid conduit to Roger Clemens, who is currently facing a trial on steroid use.

Looks like Jacobs has been reapin’ in big. It has been reported that he had a top middleman who sold nearly $30,000 worth of steroids a month. Now, Jacobs is one of seven defendants who have pleaded guilty and awaiting sentencing as early as next month.

According to Jacobs, he has taught several NFL players on how to circumvent drug screening. His advice? The athletes should ask their team doctors to prescribe them finasteride, a drug used to treat male pattern baldness. Jacobs said, “The excuse they did it under was that the players were losing their hair because they were taking their helmets on and off,” Finasteride is not among NFL’s banned substances.

Former Dallas lineman Matt Lehr allegedly has some connections with Jacobs’ steroid trade. Jacobs actually named Lehr as one of his buyers and middleman of his performance-enhancing drugs.

Now, we wonder if Jacobs can self-teach himself on how to avoid the legal mess he’s got himself into.
