I have played in the NFL for several years. I can tell you thee are many people taking the juice, and many more than that taking HGH ! Then there are those who take EPO and swear by it ! It is a long season from mini camp till end of the year. Your body is constantly in a state of pain and dealing with some naging injury ! You do what you can do to stay healthy and on the field, the minute you cannot do that there is someone who can, and then you become in jepordy of your posistion and your future ! It is a buisness about what have you done for me lately ! Plain and Simple. I played 11 seasons, when I retired it was the saddest moment of my life ! I had ruptured a disk in my back, and required two surgery's. Then once done playing my body began literally to paytray me, I required 5 knee surgury;s on my right knee, and one on my left. It took me a good 4 years to get myself healthy again ! I can tell you if it had not been for the gear and HGH my recovery to wear I am now would have been impossible. I am training for my firts show and I am in the best physical shape ever ! So comming from someone who traded his life for that career I can tell you many and more that you can ever think of take and consume anything that will give them a edge and extend their playing career ! There is a pot olf gold at the end of the rainbow what are you willing to do to get that reward ? Many will tell you, ANYTHING !
