Denver Broncos’ linebacker, Von Miller, is in hot water with NFL officials these days, and he’s not alone. According to ESPN, Miller enlisted the expertise of an NFL urine collector employed with the league’s drug-testing program. The effort was vastly unsuccessful. League sources indicate that this type of action will subsequently alter the how the NFL’s collection testing procedure is administered.

The unnamed NFL urine collector was compensated to dilute Miller’s urine sample. The test still counted as a positive, which led to an initial four-week suspension for violation of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. Sources said Miller’s camp of representatives were initially making strides to appeal the suspension. However, once details confirmed that Miller did indeed conspire to corrupt the NFL’s drug testing program with the help of an insider, all further intent to appeal waned. Four meetings have been conducted in regards to the disciplinary actions taken toward Miller by the NFL. While the NFL could have actually slapped Miller with a full-year suspension for his attempt to use his status to influence the collector, it was later determined that the two equally conspired together. NFL officials settled on a six-game suspension once

NFL officials conducted a meeting with Drug Free Sport, the company contracted to conduct the NFL’s drug testing program. According to inside sources, Drug Free Sport has already taken extensive action to implement fingerprinting procedures. This advance in technology would render it impossible for unauthentic urine samples to be submitted.

    Who are we kidding? Most athletes are using something. Steroid use is rampant. Yes, some of the guys are naturally big, but if you look at how they explode in the pros it is evident that a lot of people are on something. Also, remember that if you know the right combinations of things to take, you can actually take legal things and your body will transform them into a steroid.

    At the end of the day, I couldn’t care less if they do. It just irritates me when all the evidence is right before everyone’s eyes but it is ignored, then when someone is caught, everyone acts all shocked. Steroid use is rampant in the pros and college. Also, I don’t think people really understand how many high schoolers use them. Just do a search on steroid use in high schools and you will see just how big of a problem it is. I have been an athlete my entire life and I think the high school numbers are greatly understated. People just turn a blind eye.

    Like I said, I couldn’t really care less. I believe the biggest freedom of choice that we have as human beings is what we do to our own bodies. Let’s just not be hypocritical about everything.
