Default Travis Tygart: "There Are At Least Four PED Drugs That Are Not Detected In Urine"

This article should stir some **** in here lol. I still think Pac is clean, but this is making the cause for him to just take the blood test a little more apparent.

In today's NY Daily News, it is reported that the World Anti-Doping Agency is encouraging Major League Baseball to take a stand and start testing for use of HGH (Human Growth Hormone), something the MLB players union has not been in favor of. Yea, what a surprise!

The article World Anti-Doping Agency calls on Major League Baseball to implement HGH testing by Christian Red and Nathaniel Vinton delves into the idea that the players union feels it "inappropriate" for blood testing to be done. They are much more inclined to approve a urine test but seem to be opposed to a blood test for this or any other performance-enhancing drugs (PED).

United States Anti-Doping Agency chief Travis Tygart stated that "There are at least four potent performance-enhancing drugs that are not detected in urine," (HGH is included as one of these four), "It is simply false to say that urine can detect everything that you would be concerned about. It can't."

Ok, can someone shed some light on any of this? I mean if baseball wants to demonstrate its honest and sincere efforts to "clean up the game," then why would they oppose such a test?

Additionally, the MLB, even though it seems to catch the brunt of thrashing from the media, is certainly not the only elite level sports venue where HGH (or any other PED) is being used. Anyone who believes that is either very nave or has been living under a rock for many years.

So with that in mind, is there any logical reason that elite and professional athletes, their unions, and/or organizations would oppose blood tests that could prove complete innocence above all else?

That is, any reason other than $$$$$$$.

Am sure the MLB doesnt want to have any more controversy on there hands, How would it look if some of their best player who represent their sport was found to be doping by the more strict testing?? They would lose out in sooo many ways so they would rather sweep things under the carpet.

This thread is a waste!
Its not about blood being effective enough of catching PEDs. Its about pbf not following what the commission says, oh, and he is not bigger than the sport, and pacq will not be bullied by him. And he is a coward. Etc....

The talking points have changed. They have all been dissected and ridiculed. pacq is on PEDs. PERIOD!

No, it is money.

1. Blood tests cost more money.

2. People like the exciting home runs and fast, explosive things, which are aided with PED's, which means more money.

3. Pee tests still let promoters make their extra money (see #2) while saying "See? Everyone is playing fair"

Its like the kid who hides something behind his back, tucks it into his pants, then shows you his hands and says "Im innocent, I didnt do anything wrong."

Blood tests are like strip searches. Nobody wants to strip search a kid, thats just gross.

I agree that testing is a good thing for sport, but it should not be used to manipulate one fighter or the other.

That being said, this guy is a top guy for one of the companies right?

IMO he just wnats to get paid. If every fight uses them, then they will make money.
