The NFL is conducting a comprehensive investigation into Peyton Manning's HGH allegations
The league could have swept it under the rug, but apparently there is too much damaging evidence against Ashley Manning and her receiving MULTIPLE shipments of Human Growth Hormones.
Damn its really going down
he's the golden boy
nothing will come of this
She wont come out and say that though, she has denied press conferences, its really sketchy
all she has to say it was for her but then its a whole giant legal issue because it was ILLEGALLY obtained
Look at Manning. Look at how goofy his body and head shape is. You really think he miraculously healed through good old fashion hard work and vitamins and minerals intake? Come on.
WOW what are the odds there
would be ANOTHER scandal during the two week break between the super bowl!
What are the odds of this guys? Wow this is amazing last year deflategate and now Peytgate! I can't wait to talk about this with all of my friends, even if they don't watch football!
Peyton has 1 game left in his career. It doesn't matter at all. This isn't baseball, where the league gets off on smearing the name of their historical icons. Once Manning retires the NFL will stop caring.
Don't we expect NFL athletes to get over injuries and come back to play? Why is Peyton taking HGH to recover such a bad thing, but everyone is fine with Big Ben getting shot up with horse tranquilizers in the AFC Divisional game against the Bengals?
In most sports? You're absolutely right.
In the NFL? Nope.
The people don't care because the league doesn't care. Once you retire and you're gone, the league moves on. They rarely celebrate their past cuz it's a team driven league, not a player league like MLB and the NBA. Everyone is replaceable in the NFL, even Tom Brady who has always said so. The NFL is so big and powerful it'll move the fuck on from whatever it wants to move on from. If Peyton is doing HGH, barring some revelation in the next week or so, it'll be a total non issue. He'll retire after the Owl and literally everyone, including the NFL, will stop giving a shit.
Media outlets will stop caring. The Broncos will stop caring and move on to Brock. The NFL will stop caring and move onto next season. That is how the NFL works.
I still don't think so. That's the baseball or basketball way of thinking.
Once Peyton retires he becomes old news in the NFL. Everyone moves on until his HOF ceremony.
Brett Favre texted dick pics and was hardcore addicted to pain killers, but nobody gives a shit. They remember the player because so much of following the NFL is focused on the present and future that selective memory is always used when looking in the past.
Short of murdering someone like OJ (who was also a Hollywood star btw), it'd take something fucking crazy to stick with Peyton. For various reasons, mainly because the HGH allegation investigation will slow to a crawl when everyone stops caring, and because people will remember the good. Because that's all they have time to remember.
I mean does anyone even remember or give a shit that Jamaal Lewis ran for 2000 yards one year? Sure he was a roided up beast of a man that year, but who cares? Who even cares that he ran for 2K yards?
The NFL never looks back.
Let's put it this way. Had Tom Brady retired after last year's Super Bowl Deflategate would have died with him. It was a controversy attached to Tom Brady the current player, once he's no longer relevant the story isn't. The story would move to whoever is next in line.
The NFL controls the narratives we get from the media because the NFL has multi billion dollar broadcasting contracts with its partners.
I've been saying this for weeks; after the Panthers BTFO the Buncos and send him into a shameful retirement the NFL is going to throw down the gauntlet. They won't give a fuck when there is no more money to make. It will foster goodwill for the champs that they beat a cheater and usher in the dual threat qb era that will turn pocket qbs like Peyton into relics which garner no interest.
Every super bowl has been scripted after 18-1 literally made both the NFL and Vegas BILLIONS.
Since then, you can look at every bowl and notice how in the second half, the games took a suspicious turn to go against the spread.
Sometimes it's a specific game defining instance (SB49's final offensive play for Seattle, SB46's final offensive play for New York) and occasionally the NFL has to step in and take control (SB47's power outage phenomenon).
It should be pretty obvious to everyone the Broncos are being given the win here. They're the underdog, Peyton going out with a win would look good for SB50, and the HGH scandal is popping up to distract people from the obvious, just at the same time deflategate popped up last year for the same reason.
>Lets see if the NFL learned their mistakes from Deflategate.
You mean the months upon months out of last year where people completely ignored the NBA and NHL playoffs, AND the opening of the MLB season, to continuously talk about the NFL, keeping football in the news all year? Where not only ESPN but regular media outlets kept talking about football?
Yeah, I'm sure they "learned a lesson" with that and won't do the same thing this year. Need something to talk about in the weeks leading up to the Super Bowl, and there isn't any Marshawn Lynch to get mad at this time.
>people generally behave in a logical manner
Have you ever met any people?
actually if you watch the entire al jazeera report a prominent HGH using doctor said there is only 3 ways you can legally prescribe HGH in America...
so unless she's dying of AIDS it's all fraudulent lies
>but you wouldn't know that because you're a pleb who only reads headlines
actually if you listen to him rant, he gives reasons as to why he thinks the broncos will make the superb owl
he's not predicting shit
you wouldn't have to list the reasons as to why the broncos are in if you already knew they were in
>Since then, you can look at every bowl and notice how in the second half, the games took a suspicious turn to go against the spread.
except in SB47 the comeback was FOR the spread.
And why didn't they do something similar for peyton's blowout against seattle?
You guys are retarded. Obviously any way the super bowl turns out you'll say it's scripted. If Denver wins, it's Peyton's last ride. If carolina wins, it's some affirmative action win for blacks.
And you contradict yourself, if they want peyton to look good, why would they 'play up' the HGH scandal? If deflate gate was supposed to look bad, why did the patriots win? I wouldn't really be surprised if the NFL was scripted, but at least stick to your story. You guys sound like a horoscope reading
Can you please explain to me how the NFL gets away with rigging games? Go the fuck on, retard, I'll wait.
You mean to tell me that there is a MASSIVE conspiracy, from Goodell, to the owners, to the coaches, to the trainers, to every single player on the team, to the refs, to the ball boys, to every single person involved in the NFL? Really? You believe a scandal that big can be kept a secret with that many people?
Don't forget, 9-11 was an inside job and the government is killing us with chemtrails.
