The Seattle Seahawks have recently been speaking out publicly against the NFL as they prepare for the Super Bowl, and the latest incident has come in the form of human growth hormone testing.
Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas expressed his displeasure with the testing that he felt was unnecessary. His Twitter post says it all.
Yesterday I said my shoulder was a 10 … Wake up the next morning and I have a blood test for HGH .. League office distraction

Thomas is currently recovering from a shoulder injury that he suffered in the NFC Championship, and he is on track to be healthy for the Super Bowl.
The NFL requires that eight randomly selected teams be selected for HGH testing, and six players from each of those teams have to comply with testing.
HGH use has not been a frequent problem in the NFL as it has in major league baseball, but there may be more discoveries of illegal use of performing enhancing drugs if this testing keeps up. However, it’s sure to anger players who are not guilty of it.
