Your post is full of fail
Maybe I should have put a big IF in front of the whole post.

I don't believe any of that is true. I was responding to someone saying Joey Defranco's gym won't be negatively affected if it is later proven that Cushing took steroids.

I was just putting the pieces together, that Defranco must know something we don't (like Brian Cushing as a person) to stand so emphatically behind him in this situation. Otherwise, it could be the end of his enterprise.

I'm saying this, because I believe Defranco's relationship with Cushing is more than just professional, and that he would have a clue. If he is as tight as he says he is, then he knows.

If it turns out that Brian is on Steroids, with that statement Defranco just put out, his gym, career, life is over.
Completely disagree. His gym is going to be just fine. The results speak for themselves across many many athletes.

His dvd 'Strong' is just AWESOME.
Follow me here. The results speak for themselves. Athletes are proof of those results. Brian Cushing is one of those athletes. Brian Cushing got popped for steroids. Brian's results are because of steroids. All of Defranco's clients must be on steroids.


Defranco has just made it clear that Brian is more than just a client. They are family. It makes it more difficult to distance himself if more evidence proves Brian is guilty.

At the very least, he should have kept his mouth shut... he would still be able to deny it later... like the MMA guys did.

The only way DeFranco should have said what he said, is if he is as close to Brian as he leads us to believe, and he knows for a fact that Brian does not use steroids.

Default Re: Cushing suspended 4 games for violating policy on performance-enhancing substance

I placed a Thread in the Other Sports Talk section. But I felt that this would still be of interest for those following the Cushing case. At least in the case of cyclist Landis, after all this time, we find that things are not always what a "player" would want to make us believe.

Even back in 2006, the experts couldn't explain his "screwy" high testosterone to low epitestosterone positive test........at which time he denied any drug use or manipulation vehemently saying that these results were a result of natural hormonal thyroid abnormalities which he was treated for and cortisone shots he received for an arthritic hip (anticipating surgery). Now there IS an explanation.


Landis admits drug use, claims Armstrong used

Quote:
Floyd Landis, the only cyclist to lose his Tour de France title due to doping violations, admitted to ESPN.com and The Wall Street Journal that he used performance enhancing drugs throughout his career.

He also claims several other cyclists — including former teammate and seven-time Tour De France champion Lance Armstrong — used performance enhancing drugs and that team managers, owners all knew of the drug use.

Armstrong did not respond to messages seeking comment from the Journal. He has been accused of doping several times during his career, which has always denied. Armstrong also has never been sanctioned.
Landis says he doesn't have documentation for many of his claims.

Landis sent at least three e-mails to cycling and anti-doping officials, ESPN and the Journal reported, detailing his drug use and accusations, particularly with American riders. He claims that he and other American riders learned how to conduct blood transfusions, take the synthetic blood booster Erythropoietin, or EPO, and use steroids.

One e-mail, dated April 30 and addressed to Stephen Johnson, the president of USA Cycling, alleges that Armstrong's longtime coach, Johan Bruyneel, introduced Landis to blood doping and human growth hormone in 2002 and 2003, according to the Journal. Armstrong then helped Landis understand how the drugs worked.

"He and I had lengthy discussions about it on our training rides during which time he also explained to me the evolution of EPO testing and how transfusions were now necessary due to the inconvenience of the new test," he wrote in an e-mail published by the Journal.

You may want to reveiw the 2006 HAPPENINGS surrounding this event when the accusations were fresh and Landis' explanations puzzling.

If the MODS wish that I delete this post in this thread, please let me know.

Bill Romanowski calls Brian Cushing a liar

In an appearance earlier today on Sirius XM's Mad Dog Radio, Romanowski discussed the recent four-game suspension imposed on Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, who tested positive for hCG last September.

"[H]ere's the deal," Romanowski said, "The only way you can get that substance that he took, hCG, in your body is to inject it, okay? So let's get that clear. So his sob story on TV was, I'm just going to say, was a total lie, okay?

"Do you think when he was getting injected in his ass that he didn't know what was going on? Well, bullcrap. Let's get real. Be honest about it, Brian. I'm sorry you got caught but be honest about it. What that substance is is a substance from pregnant women's urine and what it does is when you have taken a cycle of steroids it turns your system back on from being shut down. It is very, very common in bodybuilding. That is a bodybuilding supplement, or a bodybuilding drug, where when these bodybuilders go on massive doses of steroids for months at a time, they will take that drug to turn their normal system back on and get it working again."

I would think that off-topic threads shouldn't count cause some of those guys have been going on for awhile now.

Still though, this is the first Texan busted for substances and suspended from the NFL right?+
