Seattle Seahawks could benefit from Smoothie King

Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are Super Bowl Champions, but ”Smoothie King” could be a great sponsor instead of CenturyLink Field. PED’s for everyone, even the fans!

Smoothie King, is in the works to become the sponsor for the New Orleans Arena where the NBA Pelicans play. It was recently announced the blended-fruit retailer underwent a rigorous drug test where it tested positive.

According to Rocky Gettys, Smoothie King’s vice president of product development, some of the retail products found on Smoothie King’s shelves were found to contain substances on the NBA’s prohibited list. The substances included two steroid hormones: dehydroepiandrosterone, commonly known as DHEA, and androstenedione, made famous by home run king Mark McGwire, who said he took the over-the-counter muscle enhancer before it was banned by Major League Baseball in 2004.

The Seahawks should look into Smoothie King sponsor after a number of players were accused of using performance-enhancing drugs.

Seahawks offenders includes, Bruce Irvin (four-game PED suspension), Richard Sherman (appealed four-game PED Suspension), Brandon Browner (four-game PED suspension, John Moffitt (four-game PED suspension), Allen Barbre (four-game PED suspension, Winston Guy (four-game PED suspension), Walter Thurmond (four-game PED suspension).

Seven players who were one-time on the Super Bowl Champions roster have been involved in some type of accusations.

Why hasn’t a bigger deal been made over this? Why hasn’t the NFL locked down the Seahawks organization and investigated?

It’s because no one cares. Sure, everyone cares in baseball, but this football. The stronger, more hyped up, the better.

The Seahawks aren’t just number one in the NFL, they are number one — in performance enhancing substance suspensions.
