Everyone saying at least he didn’t come up with some fake ass excuse like Silva or Jones. Thing is, with EPO, there is no excuse, you know 100 percent what you are doing, there are no EPO tainted supplements. So no I don’t think he’s better off than Jones or Silva. I actually think it’s worse. All the credit bang used to get for turning him into this phenomenal fighter is now questioned.
There aren't that many, so I'll assume this is directed at me. All we're doing is teaching them to deny deny deny, deflect, and redirect. If we want to actually curb PED use, we should be more accepting of those that admit it, but history has clearly shown that the blue print for dealing with a failure should be to lie about it, admitting it only leads to being vilified.
Because its a villianous act. Derp.
Right. That isn't the argument. If we vilify those that admit it, while giving a pass to those that lie and fight their test fails - Romero, Jones, Vitor, Cyborg, Mir, Overeem, Anderson Silva, Bigfoot Silva, Royce Gracie, Brock Lesnar, Lyoto Machida, Cung Le, Jeff Shields - then no one will ever admit it. I'm not arguing giving them a pass, but when the repercussions from public opinion and punishment are harsher for those that admit it, it only creates an atmosphere where the athletes will continue to deny their wrongdoing even when caught.
