Matthews, Peppers, Neal Linked to Drug Ring

Clay Matthews

The big story in the NFL this morning is that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been linked to an Indiana clinic that reportedly supplied him with human growth hormone.

HGH is a performance-enhancing drug and has been banned by the NFL since 2011, although they only started testing for it in 2014.

Manning has denied any wrongdoing.

The report, which will air on Al-Jazeera on Sunday night, also links Green Bay Packers Mike Neal, Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews to the clinic.

It centers around pharmacist Charlie Sly, who allegedly supplied the drugs through an Indianapolis anti-aging clinic he worked at from 2011-13.

The report links several other athletes to HGH and other drugs, including Green Bay Packers linebacker Mike Neal, who allegedly introduced teammates Julius Peppers and others to Sly.

Neal was suspended for the first four games of the 2012 season for violating the league’s PED policy. That would fall into the timeframe of the Al-Jazeera report.

Peppers didn’t come to the Packers until 2014

Matthews, on the other hand, hasn’t been linked to HGH.

He’s been linked to painkillers, like your hero Brett Favre.

Sly says that he provided Clay Matthews, Green Bay’s Pro Bowl linebacker, with the prescription painkiller Percocet to help him deal with pain before at least one game. He also brags in one undercover video that Matthews texted him in an attempt to obtain Toradol, a powerful painkiller that is banned in many countries but not in the United States.

And to that we shrug our shoulders and say, “Who cares?”

Sly has since recanted his story, but not in a terribly believable manner.

    Percocet: bad stuff as most FDA approved big pharmacy medicine. Only for very short-term management of moderate to moderately severe pain , like when you want to go to to Hawaii when you shouldn’t.

    I mean it makes sense, these are the three most jacked guys on our team. I personally don’t have a problem with performance enhancing drugs because I wasn’t to see the athletes in their best possible condition

      Didn’t even read the article did you? How do painkillers get you built, the real Clay Matthews would like to know.

          Do you think that Matthews doesn’t use performance enhancing drugs? Or are you blind? And yes I did read the article by the way

    Al Jazeera! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

    Was this story before or after the report that the US just nuked Pakistan?

    1. Phatgzus December 27, 2015

      Probably Al-Jazeera America, and they’re more reputable than the major news broadcasts that are ultimately extensions of the government, cherry-picking details for their reports.

        nah, man, don’t you know? They’re all ragheads that barely have a TV down there.

        Seriously, seeing from the other side of the pond Al Jazeera America is BY FAR your best news network.

    Can’t take this report all that seriously

  6. Hmmmmm December 27, 2015

    Matthews must be high on something to go walking around with that nasty ass, unkept beard.

    Yessir, CM has never, ever used anything suspect (fingers crossed behind back).

  8. Jschizl December 28, 2015

    Same station that played Osama’s messages
    So it has to be reputable. Click bait packer website. Anything for a story. Anything to bash a packer player. You faggots r secretly fudge packing Viking fans.

    I’m also in the camp of who cares??? These guys play a vicious game, the nfl makes billions of dollars, if they need hgh or pain killers to help them recover and get on the field, they should have that choice. But then again, I’m a libertarian. I just wish they would make everything above board and legal, so guys weren’t experimenting or getting innaccurate advice or treatment. Baseball was more exciting in the 90’s, why? As everyone was jacked up and smashing the ball. The NFL is having a bad month with this and the concussion movie coming out, lol.

    If I were Mike Neal or Manning, I would get Charlie Sly to a foreign country fast and anyone else that can provide info. lol
