seriously it is mind blowingly stupid to say merriman's career ended in 2008 because he stopped doing PEDs in 2006, especially after his 2007 production and the injury that allowed him to only play one game the following year.

Merriman is stupid because he didn't immediately get treatment for the injury, but the idea that whatever he tested positive for was the reasons he was so dominant is

dumb

as

heeeeeeeelllllllllll

also lol that usa today article is 3 years old

looks like someone doesn't understand how medical companies fish for funding

I didn't notice that, but you are right. However, this recent push by the NFL could mean that the study in the USA Today article has now moved past the vetting/testing phase and is ready for implementation.

EDIT: As of 4/13/10 Ceres Nano (the company developing the urine test) is ready to implement the first round of testing.

My bad, I forgot about the knee. I was more using him as an example, there have been plenty of others throughout the sports world.

we do.

i went to bail and for whatever reason my hand got stuck right after my left arm died mid lift. came down on my left shoulder. it was my fault.

it was only 80 kilos and i'd just done 77 without a problem.

ah, i'm used to being in defend mode over cf being 'dangerous' so i had to attack your technique before i even knew what happened :cool:

anyways HGH should not only be legal but encouraged. there are a lot of benefits and just about no negative effects.

people who get so worked up about performances enhancers are milquetoast humans.

I'd like to take the chance to rehash a post I made on this subject awhile back:

I don't know why they would go to that much trouble to prevent use of a substance that really has no scientific backing for increasing performance. The big advantage that is agreed upon is recovery and "general wellness." If anything, HGH should be an open option(with professional opinion) for athletes undergoing a recovery program. That's the most likely reason it's used to begin with.

I personally don't have a problem with players using this in rehabilitation settings fwiw :chillpill:

i can understand that, but im at one of the best CF gyms in the country apparently and they'll flat out not let some people do any of the heavy olympic lifting/send people out if they're not warming up and stretching properly.

this. good post.

what HGH/HRT is best for is maintaining your hormone levels at peak ideal ratios, not for jacking you up and turning you into superman. it's a performance enhancer because it makes you healthy.

they're going to lose a lot more when 100% of the players are suspended for HGH.
