    Al Jazeera Investigation Points To Peyton Manning, Other Stars Involved In PED Use



    Inside a hotel room in Austin, Texas, a pharmacist advises a professional athlete on taking performance-enhancing drugs.

    “One anabolic , and I can give you something to use right now, is this Delta 2 stuff. It’s a steroid . There’s a bunch of football players who take this,” he tells Liam Collins, a British hurdler reporting undercover.

    In another conversation, a Vancouver pharmacist poses a question to the same athlete.

    “Have I doped people? Oh yeah. And no one’s got caught because the system is so easy to beat. That’s the sad fact.”

    Later, a Naturopath doctor explains how he would destroy medical records if investigators came looking for them.

    “I can just document everything not in this chart but on my own chart. And if somebody ever comes sniffing for it, it’s very easy to just delete and say no, this is the real chart. If say, WADA [World Anti-Doping Agency] comes sniffing around.”

    Normally these conversations take place behind closed doors, but a new investigation by Al Jazeera is bringing them to light. Liam Collins, working on behalf of Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit, spent six months undercover investigating the murky world of performance-enhancing drugs — what athletes refer to as “the dark side.”

    “For me, it was an opportunity to be the guy, to go undercover, and make a change,” said Collins. At 37, he competes as a hurdler at an international level. For the investigation he claimed that he was making one last push for the Rio Olympics and was willing to do “whatever it takes” to get there.

    The investigation has exposed the crucial role of pharmacists and doctors in creating and prescribing programs of performance-enhancing drugs designed to cheat the testing system. It also raises questions about some well-known athletes in American football and baseball who the medical professionals claim to work with.

    The athletes and medical professionals who responded to requests for comment denied any wrongdoing. This includes Peyton Manning, a football player for the Denver Broncos, whose wife, one pharmacist alleged, was supplied with human growth hormone .

    That pharmacist, Charlie Sly, has disavowed his statements to Collins that were caught on hidden camera.

    Manning in an interview Sunday on ESPN emphatically denied that he has ever used performance-enhancing drugs. He also said he is “sick” that his wife, Ashley, “is being brought into this."

    Regarding his treatment in 2011 for a severe neck injury, the Denver Broncos player said, “I busted my butt to get healthy.

    “Time and hard work was my best medicine,” Manning said. “It stings me [that] whoever this guy is says that I cut corners, I broke rules to get healthy.”

    Manning said he used a hyperbaric chamber, received 35 days of treatment to enhance blood flow in his muscles, and had nutrient therapies. “All under coach authorization,” he said. “Anything else this guy is insinuating is complete garbage.”

    In a statement, the Broncos said, “Knowing Peyton Manning and everything he stands for, the Denver Broncos support him 100 percent. These are false claims made to Al Jazeera, and we don’t believe the report.”

    Sly also named baseball players Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals and Ryan Howard of the Philadelphia Phillies as athletes he supplied with human growth hormone. Both have denied the allegations.

    But the investigation raises questions about whether medical professionals are helping athletes cross to the dark side, and whether doping in sport is reaching new levels.

    Not for nothing tho..... I wouldn't be surprised if it is true. Hgh has been rampant in the NFL for a while now. I actually would love for it to be used because it heals the players up faster. If the government/FDA would allow doctors to prescribe it before/after surgery to assist with healing then no one would have an issue with it. Of coarse insurance wouldn't cover it but if you can afford it..... Go for it

    Ofcourse a lawsuite would make you change your tune real quick. I could care less if they take PEDs or not. But I think most pros are on something. YOur job is to perform.....PEDs make sure you dont lose your job

    Why did a jury believe a murder (Sammy Gravano) to convict John Gotti? Criminals walk with other criminals.

    I know this is an older thread, but with the Super Bowl coming up I wanted to comment on it.
    Weather or not Manning used if you get the complete story the timeline for this is all pretty damn smart and well thought out.
    HGH was supposedly sent to his house in his wife's name from a prescription written by a doctor at an anti-aging clinic.
    The deliveries and the script lasted during the time of the NFL work stoppage. Meaning Peyton was not officially a player in the NFL and not subject to any drug testing. So not being in the NFL during this time he broke no rules.
    If he did it my hat is off to him.
