I think HGH testing is only logical if you really want to make it safer for the players.

/personally, I'd like em all to roid up and bash into each other at forces no mortal man could endure

I get the fact that people hate Goodell.  I don't agree with most of the hate, but I understand it.  That being said, how does an HGH agreement in any way have anything to do with that like of joking?

Might just be a troll headline, might be someone's honest opinion.

Either way, it's nice to see an organization get serious about this. Also the timing is perfect publicity wise.

yeah but at this point pick one. either its fine and everyone can start doing it, or its not fine and you try to actively figure it out and stop it. otherwise as a fan, it takes some of the fun out of the situation when you can't tell who is doping and who isn't. i imagine its not great for the players who are trying to follow the rules knowing another guy is cheating and potentially earning more money that way.

Goodell has little choice.  He has to make every attempt to stamp out all PEDs (and do it publicly) to act in good faith on the players' health in anticipation of damaged players suing the league over the next decade.

Roger Goodell made it illegal to bring purses into stadiums.  The scourge of women fans who love the NFL just as much as we men may finally come to an end, thanks to fearless Rog.  Personally, there's nothing worse than when an attractive girl dons the jersey of her favorite player, puts her ponytail through that team's baseball cap, and pounds just as many beers as the menfolk while rooting her team on to victory.  I mean, blech!  It's worse than 20 fat girls twerking, amirite?  Roger has only our best interests at heart.  Really.

The Niners (and I'm sure other teams are doing this too) a coupon to pick up a free clear plastic bag with the team logo on it so that we can bring stuff into the stadium.  Even though my gf's purse (and every other woman's) was searched before entry to every game.  So I'm not really sure WTF this is supposed to accomplish, other than alienating up to 50% of each team's fanbase.  Oh, and we can no longer bring in seat cushions, either.  Because those are obviously deadly weapons as well.  If you don't know how they can kill you, you're probably already dead and just don't know it yet.

Roger is the man.  I wish Peter King would write a love letter to him in EVERY issue of sports illustrated.  I mean, how many pushups did he do this morning? 10 million?  50 million?  The people demand to know!

I think the real question here is why is Von Miller being suspended for 4 games this season for smoking pot two years ago.

Yeah, the NFL is so unfun now that it's the most popular American sport by a considerable margin.

Imagine how tiny NFL players would be without all their HGH, Roids and Supplements. It's be like a bunch of soccer dudes sprinting up and down the field.
 
2013-07-23 12:06:01 PM
Just be happy the NFL doesn't have Gary Bettman at the helm.
 
2013-07-23 12:19:38 PM
Jesus Christ what do you want from the man?  He gave us a murder in June.  Then the story of a guy who accidentally killed his friend turned again when he retired just last week.  Do you need murder death kill every day for the league to be fun?
 
2013-07-23 12:38:07 PM
Wait, removing HGH from the game is eliminating 'fun?'

They're doing this because the public is just now figuring out that anything less than blood testing is the same as doing nothing at all. The NFL doesn't want to become the joke league that MLB has been for the last dozen+ years.

Eh, little guys like Wes Welker and Reggie Bush and Devin Hester are fun to watch too.  If NFL players were a little smaller the game wouldn't be that much different than it is today.

I'm an NFL fan and I'm quite displeased I can't bring my purse into the stadium with me and I think that's a perfectly legitimate way to feel.

I'll let Roger know. I'm sure he can have the teams install purse vendors in the concourses of all the stadiums. Then, you can just purchase a new purse once you get in the gate. Problem solved! Kinda like the way the TSA solved that water-bottle-problem they weren having.

They don't let me bring in my man purse either. We'll get over it.

I say let them take whatever they want. American sports fan ( also see: still living in Mom's basement) would tear their d*cks off jerking to those freaks. When one dies on the field, drag the corpse off and put another player in! Hell it worked for years for the Romans, they had a sell out at the Coliseum every week  Something 50% of NFL teams can't say.

Oh and BTW to the players... when your organs start to fail and your brain is mush, just STFU because you chose this job. No one forced it on you.

The NFL is in fact selling clear plastic purses with team logos on them that comply with the new rules

Just get a clear purse... Do you REALLY need anything bigger than a clutch at an NFL game?

What exactly do you need that men don't that won't fit in pockets + clutch?

You don't even need sun tan lotion at Jerry-world...

Uh.... I know what I need at Jerry World. I've been there. That is where my favorite team plays.

And I don't want the whole world gettin a gander at my tampons and other lady equipment. It's none of your farking business what I have in there unless it's a gun & I'm pretty sure that'll get noticed at security. When I go to sporting events, I take lip balm, ponytail holders, phone, keys, maybe a hoodie if it's chilly, but my favorite thing to take is my camera. I put it all into one small backpack that fits under my chair & doesn't bother anyone.

Purses are allowed literally everywhere else. If I can take it on a plane, I should be able to take it into a stadium.

Take the eleventy zillion dollar TV deals out of the equation, then see how popular it would be.

The gate receipts is such a small percentage of the NFL's revenue, that's why they can be dickbags and have a TSA-style setup for the privilege to come in and pay $12 for beers, $10 for nachos and $6 for hot dogs for 11 minutes of action and endless amounts of TV timeouts in three hours.

I know your a Cowboys fan, you're about as well respected a regular around here as they come. I realized after I posted that it sounded more snarky than intended.

But my point is - I've taken lip balm, phone, keys, a hoodie and a camera to a game. I've even carried in tampons for a girlfriend. And it all fit In pockets - especially when there's a hoodie involved.

In fact, all of that fits in a bag the size they allow, with the girl products in a pocket. It ALSO means everyone gets into the stadium faster. No more bag checks.

If your camera is more than a point&shoot it probably has a neck strap you can use to carry it in.

I just don't see the massive inconvenience in this.

Well I can bring a dead hooker on a plane, but that doesn't mean that I should bring a dead hooker to a football game. That's why, when I go to an NFL game I leave my dead hookers at home. Just 'cause you can take it on a plane doesn't mean you should take it to a football game. Take snakes for example...

When you find a way to take the TV deals out of the equation, let me know I guess.  I was also under the impression that the article was about HGH, not stadium attendance or TV policy (hint: it's not about stadium attendance or TV policy).  Sorry you missed that.

My camera is a mid-level not-point-and-shoot. I don't want to carry it around my neck because it's a bit heavy for that. Rangers seem to have a pretty good handle on this "problem." A line for bags & a line for no bags. I've rarely waited more than a few minutes with my bag & the no-bag line moves along really fast & is an incentive not to bring a bag. However, I'd like to have a choice in whether I bring a bag or not. Just banning them outright is a huge inconvenience.

And just to compare:
Rangers games usually involve 40,000 fans with 4 gates.
Cowboys games average around 90,000 fans with 10 gates.

I've never been to another NFL stadium, but since Dallas is #1 in attendance, I figured it'd be a fairly good example.

MDMA only stays in a fat lazy persons body 3 days tops.  A professional athlete on 5000-10000 calorie a day diet has a super fast metabolism.  So he'd probably have to be on it while they're taking his urine to test positive

Making a comment referring to HGH in a thread about HGH is obviously missing the point.  I am totally in the wrong, obviously.  You were right to go on a tangent about an unrelated topic to prove how my comment wasn't valid.
