Just wondering if anyone knows. Been curious watching the world cup.

What is it about any performance you've seen that suggests a person would need PEDs to achieve it? Roony aside.

Just saw this on ESPN site
No positive tests for four straight world cups.
doxter said:football has had doping convictions , doping programs and tests being avoided and indeed deaths in you active athletes.
why would anyone imagine there is no doping going on
spanky wanderlust said:a timely topic.
it seems to me they'd need a similar program to a cyclist. epo/transfusions for endurance. hgh and testosterone for recovery. at least one type of anabolic steroid for muscle growth, but not the same dosage a body builder or american footballer might use.
the only difference it seems would be that footie controls are much less stringent. i think they could go to 60% hct no problem. it should be easy to mask the steroids. but i don't know enough about the controls to say for sure.
another major difference i just thought of is how to manage the blood withdrawals/infusions. since footballers play usually year round it must be hard to find good times to do this. i expect this is pretty easy to get around. but you probably have to count on some "off" games.
my guess is they just use epo. i don't know that they even test for it.
i'm just brainstorming.

Btw, does anyone else think that maradona could actually find a suit that didnt make him look a small fat teletubbie?

- Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger is convinced teams he bought players from were doping them
The Hitch said:And why arent more players dying, considering how many world famous players there are- thousands. was foes death suspicious?
Kender said:all this BS about football being a skill sport not an enduro sport so there is no doping is a smokescreen
Libertine Seguros said:Nah, no smokescreen, I was just saying that because football is a skill sport not an enduro sport, the games go on for less time, and thus the required dosage to make the difference isn't as high.
