Back sooner than expected?

Quote:
Harvin is already ahead of schedule in his rehab from hip surgery and, given his elite conditioning and lean muscle mass, has “wowed” his surgeon with his recovery this far, according to a source.


Quote:
However, his hip required the procedure just as camp was opening and initial estimates by specialists put his entire 2013 season in jeopardy.


Nothing suspicious here folks. Nope. Nada.

Every industry, not just football, needs to go to blood draws for drug testing and not urine samples. Way too many ways to cheat with urine. But then again, what kind of game would we have if these guys weren't used PED's?

The drug policy is a joke.

Well, I can see having drug testing in a sports, where the essence of the game is pitting physical ability against physical ability.

And perhaps in occupations (air pilots, heavy equipment operators, e.g.) where impairment can have life-or-death consequences for others.

On the other hand, I object very strongly to the notion that any old employer should be doing blood OR urine testing. If the employer can't figure out that his worker is impaired on the job without testing, then the employer ought to hire people who can.

To my mind, what someone puts or doesn't put in his/her body is none of the employer's damn business, any more than it should be the employer's damn business what one does when not on the job.

I've never worked for someone who demanded drug testing. But I like to think that if I did, I'd tell them to fuck themselves with their choice of a plastic cup or syringe.

PED's should be allowed in sports.

PED's can dramatically increase injury recovery time.

Most athletes start using PED's to recover from injury, not to cheat. But the allure is too much without regulation.


Centralize the use and use blood to test for offenders.

Not too difficult to capitalize on it and still reap the benefits. Too many want absolute control over something and ignore common sense.

Teenage kids are using PEDs, but pro athletes to use them for injury recovery in mass dosages. Prior to injury, they are using them to get an edge.

Then you would be laid off.

Pretty tough to enforce drug policies when we are THE drug country.

The company I work for wouldn't be effected by it one bit.
