Congressional Hearing Focuses On Delay Of HGH Testing In The NFL

Wednesday, 12 December 2012

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing today in order to determine whether the science behind the National Football League's proposed method of testing for Human Growth Hormone (HGH) is valid and acceptable for the testing of NFL athletes. It has been 17 months since a new collective bargaining agreement was reached between the NFL's team owners and the NFL Players Association, which specifically provided for future HGH testing, contingent on the NFLPA approving the specific process. To date, the two parties have not agreed to implement a testing method, because the players' union will not concede to the validity of the specific testing proposed by the league, which is the same procedure and methodology used by Major League Baseball and with regards to the Olympic games. Further, the two parties have not been able to agree on a mutually acceptable scientist to help resolve the issue.
