PIGSKIN AND POLITICS: ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter cited a source as saying that the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight & Government Reform will “convene a hearing next week to examine the science behind HGH testing and the health concerns surrounding its use.” The hearing will “feature experts and individuals concerned about the dangers of performance-enhancing substances.” The NFLPA has “cited the inadequacy of HGH testing as a reason for holding up implementation of a testing regime in the NFL.” The hearing will “seek opinions on the subject.” The source said that the hearing is “being held because the committee is upset with the union's refusal to allow the testing” (ESPN.com, 11/26).
