Re: IF true (still a big if), does it matter if the player is uses HGH to heal?

I see the point there. Albuterol my son takes for athsma is also a steroid. I don't see soccer moms screaming drug cheat at kids who take it, and if they did it would be silly.

One notable thing from the Al Jazeera report: there were numerous people interviewed ranging from the scummy drug dealers to doctors and scientists. The takeaway is HGH has been greatly reduced and replaced by other exotic drug cocktails and new synthetic drugs. I gathered the impression that HGH is basically a Shirley Temple with a cherry compared to the exotic new stuff which passes through the body in hours. One person interviewed ran MLB's drug task force and basically said it is impossible to get caught now UNLESS you are investigated. That's what is about to happen here. Cell phone records, travel records, medical records, doctors' pharma sourcing and history records, etc.
