HGH
Bigger, faster, stronger is good if the joints can hold up to it.

They cannot.

Keep wondering which NFL player is going to get busted first? Watt? AP?

Re: Ouch....

I want some HGH. It's not even illegal in my profession.
I bet it's easier to get HGH in the NFL than on the street!

HGH is not an anabolic steroid and doesn't make you bigger, stronger, faster; unless you want to wait 4 years.

HGH speeds the healing and recovery time.

This is a big topic for potential discussion in the NFL but one, that without proper thought process (that's me giving myself a backout clause) sounds very sensible.

I mean you will always have people say that teams will then fake injuries to get cap relief or some other such conspiracy but it seems fair to offer some sort of proportion back if only a gesture.

Say for example, an NFL approved doctor with no team ties has to perform the diagnosis and if someone is truly out for a season then you get a percentage of their cap hit back. You could even only make that 20-30% which is then not a reason for sending down a massive player on purpose.

Hmmmm. Food for thought.

That's what I'm talking about, ACL injuries are out of control throughout the entire league, they need to remedy that ... don't know about the cap relief angle though, if the teams don't lose any value associated with that injury, they'll never move to investigate/eliminate the source of the injuries.

Just do a search for "grow young with HGH" and get over 2million results, it's everywhere. I see advertisements in VFW magazine for some place in New York selling the stuff, so yeah, it's not illegal? Not evaluated by the FDA either, but what does that mean anymore?

This is an interesting proposition, if it could be adjudicated fairly. The problem is the massive grey area of diagnosis and prognosis.

How about having more players on the roster with the same cap?

This will have the effect of forcing down wages, reducing the effect of any one player having a catastrophic impact on the financials, as well as having more players to rotate in, reducing fatigue, which is the biggest contributor to injuries (aside from questionable hits).
