Issa, Cummings Invite Two Sides In NFL HGH Testing Debate To Hill

October 3, 2011
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has accepted an invitation from the House Oversight Committee to discuss why the league has not yet worked out a human growth hormone testing regimen with the NFL Players Association.

House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), and ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) last week invited Goodell, the NFLPA's DeMaurice Smith and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to talk about plans to implement testing.

HGH testing was approved as part of an August collective bargaining deal between the two sides, but specifics, including when players can be tested, have yet to be settled.

In a statement, the NFL said: "We are disappointed in the union's failure to follow through on its commitment to HGH testing to ensure the integrity of competition on the field, protect the health of NFL players and the right message to young athletes. We appreciate the committee's interest and look forward to cooperating with the members on this matter."

The Alley has also reached out to the players' union and will update this post if we get a response.
