Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Anthony Gonzalez doesn’t know exactly how many people in the NFL are using human-growth hormone, but when he looks at somebody and they’re a lot bigger than him, he’s awfully sure they’re on drugs. So says an interview with IndyStar.com reporter Bob Kravitz.
“How many guys are on it, that’s hard to say,” Gonzalez said. “It could be 10, it could be a hundred or more; either way, it’s too much. But around the league, you see guys on Sunday, and things don’t add up; they don’t look right. I see guys I saw in college, now they’re in the NFL and they look totally different.
“I don’t know how prevalent it is at this point, but to say that it’s not being used, that’s wrong.”
Sure, Anthony Gonzalez might be the football playing equivalent of that guy who shows you a picture of Megan Fox from now and a picture of Megan Fox from eight years ago to prove she had an ear job, and sure, Bob Kravitz makes it sound like Gonzalez showed up to training camp with a sword and shield to fight HGH use in pro football, but he makes a good point. HGH can give you a lot without taking a lot away, and it would be pretty shocking if a colossal portion of professional athletes wouldn’t throw in with that.
And then, uh, then he compares life to a Bradley Cooper movie.
“Before testing, the only way you got caught was if you were arrested with it or ended up on a supplier list.”
He added, “If I could give someone on Wall Street a pill that gives them all the intelligence they need to beat the market — a little bit like (the movie) ‘Limitless’ — and it was illegal but there was no fear of getting caught, I can promise you there would be people lined up around the block for that pill.”
So … voice of reason, whistle-blower, or a guy who gets his mind blown by terrible movies?
