    Anyone else think that these so-called "Centers", first made popular by baseball players in Arizona (hint, hint), and sprinters, are probably feeding HGH to the pro prospects prior to the draft? I think the chances are oh, about 95%.

    I went ot one when I was coming out of college. And yes it was in Arizona. I was coming off knee surgery, I had torn 3 ligaments, much like Rodney did and they did wonders for me. And while I did take a lot of vitamins and supplements, I do not think they gave me anything that was ever illegal or would cause serious side effects down the road.

    I am sending my son (15 years old) to one right now. As a six foot, 230 pound ILB, they have reduced his 40 time from 5.56 to 4.98 in less 6 months, increased his strength by 11% and increased his flexibility by 4%. The only thing they've given him is either water or gatorade.

    I would be shocked if any athlete would "use performance enhancing drugs"on purpose;)
    What would they have to gain?
    Oh ya, Multi million dollar contracts.
    The companies blur the line between Legal/Illegal.
    They "push the envelope" just like the players must do.

    When I went to Arizona, the councilors made a point of taking all the kids with Asthsma or on any doctor prescribed medicine and seperating them from the rest of us for 2 days.

    When those kids where finally allowed back with the main group, I asked one of them where they went. He said the medical staff and trainers went over all their perscriptions one player at a time and each player had to give a couple of tubes of blood. The blood was sent away for testing and when the tests came back, he was allowed to return. I think some players were not allowed to return and they were sent home.
