Peyton Manning and His Football Legacy
According to the report, which came out late last week names Manning along with several other athletes with having taken the drug in 2011 and receiving them from the Guyer Institute, an anti-aging company in Indiana. Supposedly, Charlie Sly, an Austin, Texas-based pharmacist that once worked for the Guyer Institute was secretly recorded during an interview with Liam Collins. Charlie Sly has since recanted his story, but not before many news sources and athletes learned of the claims.
Manning states that the accusations are completely false and utterly ridiculous! Making Manning even madder is the fact that the story says that Ashley Manning, Peyton's wife, was the one that got the prescriptions for him. Manning says that he is upset that Ashley's medical treatment history is being violated and that whatever treatments his wife has had are her business. That makes me wonder if she did receive the growth hormone for herself and not Peyton from the clinic. If she did, it is truly no one's business.
Manning has said that he may sue as it is a report that could harm his legacy as the clean, professional player that he is. Manning says he fought hard following his neck injury to get back to playing at his former level without using illegal drugs as far as the NFL is concerned. The NFL says that HGH are illegal and if Manning were to be found guilty of using them, his career could be immensely affected. However, I truly believe that the entire report is false!
