An anonymous NFL player went on record with Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in stating that HGH use in the league is common. "It's like clockwork nowadays," he said. He estimated that 10 to 15 players per team used the banned substance. "(It's) not tested and it's easy to get. Nowadays, dude? In 2013? (Expletive) yeah. I'm just being real." The NFL and Players Association still have not found an agreement for HGH testing. The issue was raised during the lockout, yet found no resolution. The anonymous player added, "I say, just let guys do it. This is our career. We're putting on for fans . . . HGH isn't anything. . . I don't care who's taking it."
From my perspective, I don't care. HGH use is illegal in some cases, and I'll leave the audience to do their homework on it. It's not the NFL's responsibility to police the issue and it's not my life on the line. There are simply too many issues and problems in this world to take a hardline stance on every single one of them. In the grand scheme of things, HGH use in the NFL falls near the bottom of my morality scale. If these athletes want to break the law or break the rules of the NFL, that's on them and they live their own lives. From a fantasy perspective, it's a non-factor. Beyond speculation, there's no way to know who is clean and who is not.
