The anonymous comments come after Seahawks star Earl Thomas complained of having to give an HGH blood test in the run up to the season finale.

The Browns receiver was recently banned for the entire 2015 season after failing an alcohol test leading to high profile names in the media such as Stephen A. Smith and Charles Barkley voicing concerns about his well-being.
Across to the NBA and Kobe Bryant says he plans to be back on the court in time for the Lakers’ September training camp.
Bryant faces months of rehab before then though after undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery yesterday. The Lakers performed well in his absence though, seeing of the challenge of the Chicago Bulls last night in a 123-118 double overtime win.
And finally, in college basketball, No.4 Duke has made the shock decision to dismiss junior guard Rasheed Sulaimon from the program.
Speaking on the issue Coach K made it clear just what led the school to make the call:
"Rasheed has been unable to consistently live up to the standards required to be a member of our program," the veteran head coach explained.
"It is a privilege to represent Duke University and with that privilege comes the responsibility to conduct oneself in a certain manner. After Rasheed repeatedly struggled to meet the necessary obligations, it became apparent that it was time to dismiss him from the program."
