Re: HGH DR. linked to Redskins Player

Until there's a name linked to it, I don't really care.

The type of treatment likely administered would be for recovery of injury or surgery
It should be legalized though I can understand the NFL being weary of allowing it.

you can still have to rest some games... it's not a miracle treatment

Now is this treatment legal in Canada. If so I really dont see anything wrong with cutting edge technology.

Ive had surgery and was given steriods to recover. It could also be the Gov. and big business arent making money so their not going to have that.

i don't know i just think this seems more serious that cushing. he got popped for a random drug test. whomever this redskins is seems to have been using for a long period of time and still passing the nfl tests. i would think any of these athletes named in this case will be in serious trouble and this case could change the way the nfl test for drugs. from what i have read it seems like the player from washington did hgh over a extended period of time while i would assume he is passing the league drug test, which i would also assume might piss the nfl off. basically just a lot of speculation

Re: HGH DR. linked to Redskins Player

Dr. Galea's Wiki:
Quote:
Anthony Galea (age 51) is a Canadian sports medicine specialist. He is a team physician with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.[1]

On December 15, 2009 the New York Times and the Associated Press reported that Galea is the subject of a joint investigation by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Buffalo Field Office for allegedly providing elite athletes with performance enhancing drugs,[2] as well as criminal conspiracy.[3] The drugs were Actovegin and human growth hormone.[2] Galea was arrested in Toronto on October 15, 2009 and will face charges.[3]

Galea's confirmed clients include golfer Tiger Woods, Olympic medalists Dara Torres, Mark McCoy and Donovan Bailey,[2] NFL players Javon Walker and Chris Simms,[2] and figure skater Patrick Chan.[4] Major League Baseball players Huston Street and John Patterson have also received treatment from Galea.[5] According to the New York Times, Galea visited Tiger Woods at his Orlando home at least four times in February and March of 2009 to administer a special blood-spinning technique, and that Woods responded well to the treatment.[2]

On February 28, 2010, The New York Times reported that Galea treated New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez in March 2009 and that Rodriguez's rehabilitation from knee surgery was overseen by Dr. Mark Lindsay, an associate of Galea's.[6]

On May 18, 2010, Galea was formally accused of illegally distributing HGH in a criminal complaint filed in Buffalo, New York.[7] The same day, Mike Fish of ESPN reported that Galea criss-crossed the United States during the summer of 2009, treating 23 athletes with a variety of substances, including HGH.[8]

Re: HGH DR. linked to Redskins Player

As long as they don't lie to the Feds they should be fine. The real question is when the name is leaked, whether they have to serve a suspension.


Please don't be Orakpo....please...

true, can you update the NYTimes article that is cited in the wiki and mentions the same two players?
Quote:
The N.F.L. quarterback Chris Simms and wide receiver Javon Walker swear by him. In March, Dr. Galea arranged for Mr. Walker to have cartilage-replacement surgery on his knee in Jerusalem because the procedure is not approved in the United States or Canada. Mr. Walker said the recovery time was half what it would have been if he had had the procedure doctors recommended in the United States.

“He’s a person who just wants to help and heal,” Walker said. “And the world is going to soon know about him.”

I had that same thought, but it sounds like it's players that were in the NFL in 2007, so that would exclude him.

>> The player was treated "on a weekly basis during the season" between Oct. 2007-09
