    Or if you believe al Jazeera's source. Interesting story. Will need to hear more. Wouldn't shock me, but ... I'll wait and see. Clay Matthews (pain pills), Julius Peppers among others named.

    From the original link.

    Robertson, the pharmacist, and Spletzer, the neuropathic physician, did not respond to Al Jazeera’s request for comment. Sly, when pressed by Al Jazeera, backtracked, saying that his claims about supplying the drugs to athletes were “false and incorrect.”

    In a subsequent statement to Al Jazeera, he walked back the comments even further, saying that Collins took advantage of him while Sly was grieving the death of his fiancée.

    If he was receiving during the 2011 year in which he didn't play I don't think the majority of fans will care.

    Other than kickers and punters, I can't see how a single NFL player wouldn't be on HGH at this point.

    Why not kickers and punters?

    Wouldn't seem worth it. Not that I'd be hugely surprised there either, I guess.

    That he would do this to accelerate recovery from neck surgery is the most believable part of the whole story.

    So Goodell calls Manning and forces him to retire at the end of the year, right? Avoids a messy investigation, suspension or anything of that sort.
    Can't wait to see the media frenzy tomorrow protect the saint of the NFL.

    For the record, I think using legal medicine to help recover from surgery should be allowed. There's a reason old people get prescribed forms of HgH.
