During today’s press conference at the NFL Annual Meeting, Commissioner Goodell answered a question on the status of HGH testing.
On HGH testing and the hindrance caused by the NFLPA’s request to first acquire a population study consisting only of NFL players:
If the population study was the only thing in the way from us reaching an agreement, we would have an agreement. Let me put it that way. We are prepared to do that if that resolves the issue. I sent an e-mail to (NFLPA Executive Director) De(Maurice Smith) before I left, and unfortunately, our meetings sort of crossed, but HGH was on that list and I expect by the end of the week I will be speaking to him about it again.
