I'm listening to Albert Breer on the NFL Network (whom I thought was John Stockton until they posted his name) says there's still a number of issues at hand. With political pressure on the NFL to implement blood testing and the player's being afraid of needles, this could very well be a sticking point.

Free agents won't be able to practice pending resolution, including Tamba "Money Bags" Hali.

HGH testing part of new CBA; testing expected to begin this season

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on August 4, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT


The announcement regarding the official ratification of the CBA should come any minute.

That CBA will include a major victory for the league: blood testing of HGH for NFL players. Judy Battista of the New York Times reports HGH testing is in the agreement. There will be random, annual testing. The goal is for testing to start at the beginning of the season.

It’s a great victory for the league, but ultimately drug testing is more about public relations than anything else. The drug makers are always way ahead of the drug testers, and HGH is relatively old news in the performance enhancement field for top athletes.

Still, the NFL deserves kudos for being the first U.S. league to institute the testing. Getting the union to agree to blood testing will make it a lot easier to test for any substance in the future.

Nope I spoke too soon. Quite frankly I'm shocked. Be careful what you wish for NFL, Pandora's Box is a motherfucker.
