Doping scandals have long rocked the world of professional track and field, but now the major team sports may have a doping scandal of their own. Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit has gone undercover to look at doping and some big names came up in their investigation. The show “The Dark Side” is going to air on TV on Sunday night but it’s already been published online and you can watch it below.
In the report, a slew of high-profile NFL players are mentioned including Peyton Manning, Julius Peppers, Mike Neal and James Harrison. The same is true for baseball as Ryan Howard and Ryan Zimmerman are mentioned.
Many of the players in the report have already denied the allegations about them, including Harrison and Manning. The man who brought up Manning’s name is now claiming what he said wasn’t true as shown below.
What do you think of the report and denial? Watch the two clips above and then tell us what you think on our message board:
