In the NFL’s constant ambush of the Dallas Cowboys, now the powers at be are hunting Terrell Owens. The NFL wanted to random drug test the super star wide receiver, but Owens missed the testing. He blamed it on a “communication problem involving cell phone numbers.”
The excuse sort of made me chuckle but all of the Cowboys haters are foaming at the mouth over this meaningless tidbit.
“I’m not really worried about anything,” Owens said Monday afternoon in an interview with The Associated Press. “It’s not a big deal. Anything I do is going to grab headlines. I have nothing to hide. I’ve made a statement and that’s it. It’s basically a dead issue.”
Anyone who thinks Owens uses performance enhancing drugs is just plain stupid. Bet all your money on Owens passing the drug test, and I would not doubt he missed the test on purpose to make headlines because that’s our boy.
But his strength and conditioning is natural, I can promise you that. The guy is a workout freak. Most people who use performance enhancing drugs are not cut like Owens; they are bulky with the cuts. Owens is cut without that HGH-Steroid bulk. Plus, his head is the right size.
“I have been in the NFL for over 12 years and have never had a positive test for substance of any kind. That includes tests that took place as recently as last month. The matter was resolved to everyone’s satisfaction last Tuesday, and everyone has moved on.”
Yes, let’s move on. If interested, Hasmarks has a good post on the rundown of the NFL’s drug policy.
