and c'mon there is a clear difference between taking steroids to swing at a ball, or run track, or swim in a pool and taking it to try and physically hurt your opponent.

Another solution is lie detectors, much cheaper and only test the ones that fail it.

They are still like 85% accurate, plus you would test the ones that fail and only go with the actual lab results.

The problem is that they are only really measuring stress levels, so if you can remain calm you can say what ever you like and still not fail the test. Which means that if you train yourself to beat the lie detector you can abuse all the PEDs you like and still not get tested.

Steroids are a lot worse in combat sports. You aren't trying to kick somebody in the head in basketball or tear someone's arm off in baseball.

every now and then a thread comes along showing the kind of people that this forum attracts. this is one. the reason steroids are different in combat sports is because they make you stronger. and fitter. and more athletic. and you are using these attributes to try to send some one to sleep. if you cant understand that, i weep for you i really do.
