Default Goodell: NFL nears HGH testing

NEW ORLEANS -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says he believes there will be an agreement soon with the players' union for testing for human growth hormone.

At his annual state of the NFL news conference on Friday, Goodell said he expects an agreement for the tests to be reached in time for the start of the 2013 season.

Goodell noted that the league and union agreed to the testing two years ago in the collective bargaining agreement. He said it is important to have testing to retain the integrity and the brand of the league.

Goodell touched on a number of topics Friday, including player safety. He said he intends to keep pursuing suspensions to discipline players who violate player-safety rules with actions such as hits to the head.

Well Goodell at least is trying to bring something better and new to help restore integrity to the game. Even though he has had a love-hate relationship with the 32 teams and players. More of the latter than the former. As really the guy wants respect but has not gotten it yet. He has a long way to go with trying to restore order and integrity.
Happy Memorial Day!
