The game with steroids is making an analog that clears quickly to beat a test. hGH is used because until recently, it wasn't tested for. Insulin is pretty much the freebie but it's also by far the most dangerous.
But why not ban the modulator? Why is it bad to give suspensions for testing positive for the hammer, sledgehammer, or the finishing hammer?
