GOODENOW GIVES LITTLE HOPE TO IOC'S HOPE FOR DRUG POLICY
Published September 18, 1998
NHLPA Exec Dir Bob Goodenow said that the NHL is "unlikely to support efforts" by the IOC to develop a uniform drug policy for North American pro sports, according to REUTERS. The IOC Exec Board has asked the NHL, NFL, NBA and MLB to join to "fight against the use of performance- enhancing drugs by adopting common anti-doping standards and a universal banned substance list." But Goodenow said that the current IOC "anti-doping standards would not work" in pro sports leagues operating in the U.S. and Canada: "There will be some discussions with the IOC but my sense is the standards of the IOC are not applicable to our standards. ... You just have to look at things like Sudafed. The Olympics have spent millions trying to get their arms around this thing and they haven't" (REUTERS, 9/17).
