First off I have to say that Rodney Harrison has tarnished his legacy forever. He will forever be considered a cheater. With all that being said, let me clear something up.....He admitted to using an HGH (Human Growth Hormone) NOT steroids. Although they are both illegal and wrong and similar in that aspect, they are very different. Steroids are synthetically produced and are used primarily for buliding muscle mass quickly. HGH is a natural hormone in all of our body's that the brain stops secreting when we're in our 30's. The main property of HGH is to increase height, and the other important benefits are that it increases muscle mass, helps in calcium retention in our body, helps in keeping bones healthy, reduces fat in the body, helps in controlling sugar and insulin levels, helps with immunity and several more important functions that keep us healthy when we are young. It is considered believed that HGH is the "fountain of youth". It makes you look and feel young again....thats it's primary function.

Steroids are taken to increase strength and speed in order to get an edge while HGH is primarily taken just to prolong a career and help you look and feel younger. I am in NO way condoning the use of HGH and Steroids but I just had bring to light, the differences between them and the purposes for using each.

I GUARANTEE that theres a handful of players on every team at one point or another that have used HGH.....GUARANTEE. I knew of at least 15 teammates of mine in college (baseball and football) that used HGH for recovery.

Yea...Ring please. It's nice to find out that a team who won their third superbowl in four seasons had a pro-bowl cheater. And to see it's Harrison is another story, a dirty player in general cheating is just odd.
When you present us with proof that he was using HGH during that '04 season, then you can have your frickin' rings.
Not so fast. Poor Excuses, spilled milk and water under the bridge don't win Superbowls, although one team in recent memory has whined their way into the Superbowl.... Those rings aren't going anywhere.

We won't get the rings anyways.

Banned Substance + NFL Player = Cheating

Is that right?

Reread my post wise guy......the point was that the HGH wasnt a factor in the Super Bowl win over the Eagles, which was prior to the admitted use in '05.

Nice try though....

..How do you know he used steroids during that time... and like 3 of the Panthers OL used steroides when they were playing us in the superbowl... we still beat them, you were the worse team will you get over it and stop acting like such a baby.

Rodney Harrison did NOT use steroids........he admitted to using HGH which is completely different. It's a banned substance, but used primarily for quick recoveries or recapturing youth. Its really no different than pain-killers or cortisone shots. Millions of people take HGH everyday....LEGALLY. Should he have taken it ?? No, because its a banned substance in the NFL and he should be punished. I commend him for admitting it, because you can't test for it. They have a test but theres no way to detect the use of HGH because everyone has varying levels of it in their bodies. They can't distinguish between a person's natural level of HGH or an increased one.

He was wrong for taking it, but unlike every other athlete caught....he told the truth. He didn't lie, he didn't give excuses. He admitted to using it to recover from injuries that he feared would end his career. It was a mistake on his part, he's taking responsibility for it and he knows he was wrong.

Stop defending the guy. He's a cheater, just like everyone who uses steroids. Other people get injured all the time but don't stoop so low as to cheat to recover.

Who cares if he admitted it? He wouldn't have admitted it if they hadn't found out, so it's not like he suddenly had an attack on conscience. He would gladly have kept his cheating a secret if he could have.

He knowingly and willingly took HGH hoping to get an advantage. 4 games is not punishment enough for a cheater.

Baby? It's nice to find out that the dynasty of the NFL has a cheater on their team. He was one of your biggest threats on the defense and in that particular game in the Super Bowl he was a major factor in that game. So if there is proof he did take them that season then a lot of those red zone opportunities we missed could've been captalized and we could've won that game.

I have moved on from that, It's just not that cool to find out that a guy like Harrison was taking HGH. We'll see what the NFL says in the upcoming weeks if they have proof of when he did it.

How do you know he didnt? cmon hes over thirty, most of the people would agree that it is very probable that he cheated in his previous years.
And im not acting like a baby, i just point out the fact that the team we played in the SB had a cheater who had 2 ints in that game in their squad.
Athletes around the world have had their titles given to other athletes because they cheated...

People are just dying to throw this guy under the boss.

Because if he did New England cheated us out of a Super Bowl win. You would not have won without him in that game.
