Report: NFL proposes HGH blood test again; players' union is against idea - ESPN The NFL and the Player's Union are in disagreement over whether players should be subjected to blood testing for HGH. This poses an interesting question. How far is too far, when it comes to testing for PEDs? I know plenty of people who would be very upset if their employer tried to implement such a policy, and I can see that side of it. However, my current employer requires that a whole slew of bloodwork be done before an employee can start, and nobody seems to have a problem with it. This might become a pretty big issue in the league.
