Where are you at with this whole Cushgate drama?
I certainly hope so. He hasn't lost much of the fanbase, if judging by the boards is any indication, yet. If it turns out he's lying, I think he's out of houston
I'm not buying what he was selling in the press conference.
Nobody can say for sure. But I would be willing to bet dollars to doughnuts that the guy is a steroid user.
Doesn't really bother me other than the fact that he got caught.
Depends on if Im supposed to vote with my head or my heart.
I voted "lying" because I'd be lying to myself if I voted otherwise.
Still a fan.
I don't believe him..the tumor issue..press conference hurt more than helped.
I can't believe so many don't care. Very strange.
Its one thing to get busted for PEDs. Its another thing to be on steroids. But its serious to me when someone lies in the face of fans.
Either you believe him that he did not knowingly put steroids/PEDs into his system.
Or you are aknoweldging that a player stood up in front of the media and fans and blatantly lied.
I voted "Dont Care" because at this point I have no idea if he did or didnt.
I think there is compelling arguements for both sides.. and I dont think we are going to get a whole lot more information at this point. I HOPE that sometime in the near future he will announce some medical data that gives a good reason for why the hGC was there, something that puts the steroid theories to rest.. but I doubt that will happen.
So my stance has become:
"Either you did it or you didnt, I cant say for sure...so lets just forget about the past and move forward. Keep yourself clean, dont fail any more tests... you will always have the asterisk next to your name, and the hall of fame is probably out of the question now, but you can still win alot of superbowls and be mentioned in the same sentence with the greatest linebackers of all time, and thats gotta count for something."
Would have been nice to have a don't know option.
Can't speak for others, and I have not voted yet. But it's not that people don't care, but I think that many feel that it's done, he is going to serve his 4 game suspension and nothing we can do about it. Time to move on.
I don't believe him. I am still a fan of his, but I hope he doesn't do it again.
^^^This is why I selected that option
He just needs a masking agent for his masking agent (Rickie suggests weed)....and occasionally a bro for the off-season (see Seinfeld).
Here is how I see it. Cushing falls into one of these three categories.
Cushing is telling the trouth. (For some reason his diet pills, suppliments, or whatever he takes is causing the FP.)
Cushing THINKS he is telling the truth, but is not being 100% truthful. (He is taking a banned substance but has been doing it so long that it doesnt seem wrong.)
Cushing is lying to help save his reputation and image. (He is taking a banned substance and knows that without it he wont be special. But wants to save face and gain everyone's respect back.)
I really want to believe its an FP, but the deck is stacked against him. At this point he is guilty until proven innocent.
Yep, that's the button I would have chosen if it were avaliable.
each and every non believer will go to hell
Sorry, I figured if I left that out it would have made you choose one of the three for some closure.
I guess my plan backfired on me.
Exactly the reasons that I voted the way I did.
