Peyton Manning suggests he’ll allow Guyer Institute to release records to NFL

Zz04YWY2NDc5MTYwMjQ5NGVjYjVlMjFhZjk3OTliYTRjNg== AP

The one question that needed to be asked of Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was essentially asked by Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. And Manning seemed to indicate that he’s willing to allow the Guyer Institute to share all relevant information with the NFL as part of the pending investigation regarding allegations that he used HGH in 2011.

They can have whatever they want,” Manning said in response to the question.

It would take a lot more than Manning declaring to the crowd at the NFL’s Opening Night media clusterfudge that the league can have whatever it wants. Manning would have to sign the paperwork necessary to authorize the Guyer Institute to legally release the records of his treatment.

Also, because the Al Jazeera report indicated that the HGH was sent to Manning’s wife, she’d need to sign the same paperwork.

All of this assumes that any incriminating records (if there are any) still exist. But it’s a given that Peyton and Ashley Manning received treatment from the Guyer Institute. If all of a sudden a huge gap appears in the clinic’s documents, the absence will be glaring.

If Peyton won’t be playing beyond Sunday, none of this really matters. It becomes a lot more interesting if Peyton goes to work for a team and then an adverse finding is reached at a later date.

Would discipline for an infraction as a player be imposed against Manning while working as an executive? PFT previously posed that question to the league office, which deemed it to be too speculative for a response.

None of that matters until the NFL can conduct a meaningful investigation. Peyton has seemed to suggest he’ll give the NFL what it needs to do that. Time will tell whether the NFL eventually gets everything that allows a full and fair investigation to be conducted.

    —————
    The next meaningful investigation by the NFL will also be their first.

  2. sixchr says: Feb 1, 2016 9:28 PM

    Not a big deal now that he’s sent his investigative team to the clinic to destroy all records.

    I think I speak for the rest of America when I say we don’t need the Guyer records… “I just know he did it.”

    If the NFL doesn’t catch someone red handed I’d prefer that they don’t go on public witch hunts based off of hearsay. Test them properly or just leave it alone.

  6. stataddict says: Feb 1, 2016 9:30 PM

    Unless his wife agrees to the same, this is gesture is utterly meaningless. The HGH prescriptions were allegedly put in HER name.

  7. jaggedmark says: Feb 1, 2016 9:31 PM

    Executive? Maybe, but it’s far more likely he goes on a television as another talking head first, which is something he’d certainly be good at because he recognizes every single thing happening on a football field.

    Dwayne “the rock” Johnson still claims he never used steroids and still doesn’t. Then why Dwayne did you have breast reduction therapy. look manning had stem cells injected into his neck to get back on the playing field. If you don’t think he also used HGH your in denial. He went from not being able to throw 10 yards to 55td’s wake up. They all deny Armstrong Bonds Clemens Rodrigues. Clay Mathews came to USC as a walk on only weighing 155 pounds. Senior year the guy is 245 lbs all muscle. The NFL is chemical warfare, at least 60% are using. How many athletes have passed umpteen tests before getting busted.

  23. jaxon51 says: Feb 1, 2016 10:14 PM

    Huh? The NFL doing a “full and fair” investigation?
    Spygate wasn’t investigated fully or fairly, but Pats and fans had to love Goddell for how he destroyed evidence and the fact it only cost them draft picks and $750k in fines.
    Deflategate was totally “Marcia-Clarked” by NFL and the Pats and their fans hate Roger for how it was handled.
    The NFL under Roger will never do a full and fair anything.

    Patriot fans seem obsessed with seeing Manning go down in flames. It kind of reminds me of the subterfuge employed by my 9 year old daughter when she finds herself in hot water. She immediately tries to shift the focus by throwing one of her siblings under the bus. This is, I understand, typical behavior for school aged child– oh, wait…never mind. I guess just answered my own question.

    I would have so much more respect for him if he just came out and admitted it.

    The evidence is overwhelming.

    Just come out and say ” I would do anything to get back on the field for the paycheck…. Er I mean, the game I love”

    Nobody would fault him for that.

  28. rgorr44 says: Feb 1, 2016 10:25 PM

    Peyton was “generally aware” that using HGH would speed up his recovery and “more likely than not” did in fact use. C’mon, where’s all the outrage and talk about ” integrity of the game”. Where the hell are you Roger?

  29. streetyson says: Feb 1, 2016 10:30 PM

    Peyton, it’s simple, just answer: did your wife get HGH shipments and if so can you provide any evidence at all that it was for her!! Stem cell treatment normally involves HGH as a catalyst to activate the process, so if Ashley was legitimately receiving HGH you’d think Peyton would have made sure to alert the league (or keep some log) that nothing untoward was going on.

    As to those morons still raising Brady – Tom gave the league all his emails (which the immediately leaked) and at his appeal belatedly offered all his phone records which he said proved the league already had all the texts, but Goodell refused to look at them!

  38. nyneal says: Feb 1, 2016 11:22 PM

    Here’s my opinion. Who cares? More than half the players are dopers and they all take pain killers or injections so they can play on game day.
    I do not care anymore what athletes put in their bodies. I used to because I wanted sports to be clean. But I finally realized those days are forever gone. I think they all cheat in one way or another, in all sports.
    So — I do not care if Manning gets HGH or whatever else he needs before he plays a game.
    And I don’t give a damn if they get concussions, either. It’s their fault for playing this game. They all know the risks and if they’re willing to take them to make millions, then so be it. Just don’t come crying later on because you’re suffering from injuries suffered in your playing days.

  39. senatorblutarsky says: Feb 1, 2016 11:25 PM

Manning is a icon in the NFL and a true professional. Just let the man win this game broke neck noodle arm and all. Then worry about what he may or may not have done.

    Reporter to Goodell: “What progress has been made in the Peyton Manning investigation?”

    Goodell: Well we’ve concluded that Peyton was “generally aware” of using HGH. Since he will most likely be retiring, we are unable to punish him. So…we will be suspending Tom Brady in his place and also taking away the Patriots 2017 1st & 4th round draft picks.

  46. Teddybizzle says: Feb 2, 2016 2:13 AM

    This whole situation is frustrating! I mean, seriously!
    If he in fact was taking HGH, why have it delivered to your house, even in his wife’s name?? He is worth hundreds of Millions of dollars. Why would he not pay someone Ca$h to pick it up and drive it to his house?? No airports, no delivery risks? He has so much riding on this! The discovery alone, would tarnish an otherwise “PERFECT” reputation! It’s flat out Moronic is indeed true!! He seemed far to smart to allow this???
    Taking that into consideration, if you have ever read, Optimum Sports Nutrition by Dr. Michael Colgan,(good read by the way) PEDS use among NFL players , MLB, at any given time 7-10 guys are taking performance enhancing drugs at any given time! It starts in High School & College and works its way to the Pros! FACT!
    Now let’s move on, there is nothing new to see here!!

  47. raideralex99 says: Feb 2, 2016 2:58 AM

    So Manning took HGH to speed up the process of healing with is illegal if he plays football He did not play football the following year … so what’s the big deal??? When he finally did start to play football the HGH was out of his system.

    I was drinking last week but I did not drive my car because it’s illegal to drink and drink … so does that mean I cannot drive this weekend???

  51. jo6pack says: Feb 2, 2016 5:50 AM

    Guys, this is simple.

    Tom Brady has won, what, 4? He’s the top QB in this era of football, so of COURSE they’re gonna try to knock him down with some deflated football BS, because that’s what the media loves to do. That’s a story that sells.

    Manning only has one SB and he’s played like crap this year anyway, he’s already down. They’re not gonna just drag him through the mud. Now if this story broke during the year he was throwing 55 TDs, I bet it would’ve been muuuuuch bigger.

    __________________________________

    I don’t want to see Manning go down in flames. I want to find out if he used a banned substance, and I want an investigation into whether or not he used. Because others were suspended for using the same substance, and if he did, he deserves the same tarnish on his career that those players have. And if he didn’t, they need to find that out and then drop it.

    I also want the NFL to treat this with the same seriousness that they treated Deflategate, since Goodell’s justification for Brady’s 4 game suspension is that allegedly deflating footballs was just as bad as using a banned substance. Here’s a case of someone allegedly using a banned substance, and the only time the NFL issued a statement was to correct the ESPN report that they weren’t cooperating with the MLB and the USADA about these accusations. No statements about the “intergrity” of the game, no false information leaked to the media.

    I just want the NFL to stop the double standards when it comes to certain teams and certain players. The Broncos have even more of a history of cheating, especially when it comes to PEDs, than the Patriots. I’d just like to see them treated with the same suspicion that the Patriots had to put up with leading up to, and after, their Super Bowl win. I’d like to see the NFL actually seem like they care about the “integrity” of the game, like they’ve been spouting for the past year.

    But I don’t think they actually care about integrity. They only care about making themselves look good.

    And that’s what I have a problem with, that the NFL offices more concerned with their own reputation than about finding the truth. I don’t want to see Manning go down in flames, he’s had a decent career and he’s a good quarterback, but I do want to see the hypocrisy and lies in the NFL offices end.

    What are you talking about that the NFL had no access to the equipment guys? The NFL interviewed Jastremski 3 times and McNally 4 times. They finally said no to a 5th interview with McNally. Both of these guys have been reinstated with the team (with restrictions put on them by the NFL). That should tell you a lot that the NFL backtracked and allowed them to be reinstated with the team.

    ——————————————————————First of all, are you really using the word “subterfuge” to describe your daughter’s tantrums? Right off the bat sounds like you may a bit full of yourself…

    Anyway, Pats fans are hardly obsessed with seeing Manning go down, just interested (for obvious reasons) to see how the league handles this as compared to deflategate. The differences thus far are obvious to anybody watching objectively. Just another example of what a joke the league is in how it selectively pursues things from one team to the next. We’ll see how it shakes out.

    So, Goodell ignores a HOF QB admitting undetectable HGH was sent to his residence, which by precedent is a 4 game suspension, yet he makes up a narrative, spends 4 months for frame Brady just so he can appease the jealous franchises, shut them up, and get the Pats weakened for parity purposes?

    Can the media please do their jobs for once?

    Two wrongs don’t make a right, Patriot fans. Even if PM used HGH during the season he didn’t play a snap, it doesn’t change the fact that NE destroyed the statistical mean in fumbles and poor weather performance for five years before a Colts LB intercepted an oddly soft ball in the 2015 AFC Championship game. The ideal gas law does not explain how the Patriots consistently defeated the principals of mathematics and probability. Belichick is an absolute genius but even he is subject to the foundational laws of the universe.

    ___________________________________

    Jackson has repeatedly said that his interception wasn’t what triggered Deflategate and he didn’t notice that the ball was “soft”, and it’s long been reported that the NFL already had the investigation in place before that interception. Please stop using that misinformation.

    The Patriots stats on their fumbles was fumbles lost on that report, and it’s been said repeatedly that the report is highly skewed. Did you look at their stats from this year? They had .8 fumbles per game this year, and only half of those were lost fumbles, and that includes special team fumbles that use the K ball. They still had the fewest fumbles per number of offensive plays in the NFL this past year. You would think that if deflating balls was such a huge factor in their game, their fumbling statistics would have gone up drastically this year. They didn’t. They were still ranked number one in fewest fumbles per offensive plays.

    Perhaps it has to due with the fact that Bill Belichick doesn’t tolerate fumbling. Ask Stevan Ridley, when he had to stand on the sideline holding a ball all game after he fumbled in consecutive games.

    And I’m not saying that if Manning used HGH, it would cancel out any other wrongdoing by other teams, but it would put him on the same list that others who have used banned substances are on. His reputation should see the same hit as others who have used banned substances if he did use HGH. He shouldn’t get treated any differently than any other player that’s been accused of the same thing, or been penalized for the same thing.
