Default But if they were both juicing, it was a fair fight...

Just saw this: http://sports.yahoo.com/box/news?slu...yhoo&type=lgns.

Both Sherk and Franca tested positive after the fight. Sherk was on nandrolone, Franca was on drostanolone.

What do you think? Kind of puts an interesting spin on things.

Yep, not sure why it has to be a Congressional issue if grown men want to toy with their bodies.

Only one reason....there is profit to be made off it somehow....ban it...make it Dr perscription only....drug companies are the only ones who can make it....now it's healthy and legal through the system....plenty of kickbacks and stock ops to men in Washington....and the cycle repeats itself...

Maybe it's because my buddy trains with the guy, but I'm not convinced Sherk is lying. From Wikipedia:

Quote:
Urine analysis as a method of detecting nandrolone abuse has recently become somewhat controversial, following studies by the University of Aberdeen showing that the metabolite product can also show up in urine in quantities above the upper limit from a combination of high-protein diets utilising the legal nutritional supplement creatine and hard cardiovascular exercise. The reason for this unexpected result has not been determined. Another possible (though unlikely) reason for a false positive result is the consumption of beef from cattle treated with steroids including nandrolone (used in overturning the verdict against the bobsleigh racer, Lenny Paul). Heavy consumption of the essential amino acid lysine (as indicated in the treatment of cold sores) has also shown false positives in some and was cited by American Shotputter C.J. Hunter as the reason for his positive test. A final possible cause of incorrect urine test results is the presence of metabolites from other anabolic steroids. As a result of the numerous overturned verdicts, the testing procedure was reviewed by UK Sport [1] in 2000.

I can't believe that there seems to be a general agreement that steroids should be made legal, regardless of professional sports status. Baseball is already a joke because of steroids. All this would do is promote steroid use and fuel the already uber-wealthy pharmaceutical companies. What ever happened to real people working hard to accomplish something great? Do we not have enough faith in our own (human)race anymore?
