NFL drug testing is a joke

    Players are given advance notice of test and can actually claim to be "not prepared to give a sample."

    Read the story. The complexities involved in trying to administer what "the experts" would consider a legitimate test are to me degrading - starting with " must provide sample in full view of monitor". Not an easy task for many.

    The story actually changed my outlook on the whole topic. It seems like bar for monitoring has been set at an impossible height.

    I had to pee in a cup in full-view of a monitor for a job selling computers at Best Buy in the mid '90s. Players need to man up.

    Ha! I remember doing that for a seasonal job at Best Buy too. It wasn't that big of a deal.

    Yep. I have the photos to prove it. You'd be surprised how many people actually think I'm required to "monitor" them. When it comes to the hearts of the hotties in the small appliances department, I go the extra mile to make sure nobody gets in the way.

    All sports drug tests that don't test for HGH are a joke.

    Shocking! Next thing you'll tell me is that only 5% of baseball players were juicing(proof) as OOP would say.
