Post Re: Cushing suspended 4 games for steroids

As much as I hate 2 say this but, does anyone expect anything less from a USC athlete?! I mean seriously, why is this even news?! One linebacker solicits children and takes them on drunken rides around Cincinnati, one running back received thousands of dollars in gifts and vehicles, and now this...

AHH WE SUCK AGAIN!!

That seems like most peoples concerns at the moment. Maybe his newly purchased hyperbaric chamber will help with that.

1. There are tons of different drugs all considered anabolic steroids that all do different things.

2. Steroids have detection times ranging from 3 days to 18-24 months.

3. The only steroid that is known to help prevent injuries whatsoever is also one of only 2 steroids that has the 18-24 month detection time.

4. The 2 most prominent steroids that actually increase your physical strength/endurance just by taking them are very bad for football players; one kills your joints and basically gives you acute arthritis, and the other makes it almost impossible to run because your muscles fill with blood too fast. Most other steroids are poorly suited for football players during the season anyway because they destroy your cardiovascular endurance. What this means is there is no way Cushing got any "advantage" from being on them, if he was on them during the season at all, except for the fact that he had bigger and stronger muscles going into it.


It's basically a fact that tons of football players use steroids. It's widespread in college and likely even more widespread in the NFL because they have money. It is basically not physically possible to have bodies like MJD, Mario Williams, Brian Orakpo, Bruce Campbell, Taylor Mays etc.... without the use of steroids. If those people weren't using in college they wouldn't be top physical specimens, period.

If it's the combine test that Brian is now being suspended for, I guess that makes a little more sense as to why he wasn't smart enough to dodge it. Maybe he stayed on them too long up before the test or something. Either way it was stupid of him, if he was going to use he should have used the ones that exit the blood quickly.

And trust me, you don't want steroids out of the NFL. If somehow everyone stopped taking them whatsoever the sport would go back to what it was like in the 60s-70s as far as players physical ability (assuming they didn't just start taking HGH instead).

Steroids don't heal ligaments/tendons/bones. They actually don't "heal" muscles either, if the muscles are injured. Mostly what they do is increase protein synthesis and speed up the repair of micro-tears caused by weight training.

Default Re: Cushing suspended 4 games for steroids

Dangit, this sucks. But can I get some clarification?

There was a report last year the said sources indicated Cushing tested positive at the 09 Combine.

This articles says he appealed the suspension at February's Combine. Are they talking about this years 2010 combine? Did he just appeal it 3 months ago or was it last year?

If he tested positive last year, why was he allowed to play all season? why did he not get in trouble till now?

I'm so confused and so sad.

Steroids also break up scar tissue which is a critical element from recovering from a ligament or a tendon. I'm currently on a dexamethsone gel delivered by an ultrasound.

That's a corticosteroid, not an anabolic steroid. Very different things. For one, corticosteroids don't build muscles.

well at least the Texans were aggressive in improving the team this offseason.....oh wait, never mind

and how about Dunta turning heads in Atlanta....what a great front office we have

inactivity, complacency, and a commitment to mediocrity

Go Texans
