Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com reports Ravens WR Derrick Mason has always been one to speak his mind. So it shouldn’t come to a surprise that he made his feelings known about the job NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is doing, especially in regard to drug testing.
“I mean you want to do whatever you have to do to make sure there’s not a competitive edge in the sport. You know blood tests? I don’t know,” he told 105.7 the Fan in Baltimore earlier this week. “They’ve been crying for a blood test for the longest (time) and I think that’s too intrusive. There’s other ways and other methods I think to go about testing for it.”
“You know he didn’t stop crying about blood tests and HGH. He needs to try to get a (new CBA) deal done. That’s what he needs to do. He’s been on the crusade about HGH, but he needs to be on a crusade about getting these owners together and trying to work out a deal,” the veteran wide receiver said. “He’s to me is just to me, he’s a joke. He’s a joke because every time I look he’s talking about performance enhancements instead of trying to figure out a way to make sure football is played in August.”
