So risk prosecuting your champions and let the abusers who can't win, continue to use PED? Just sayin'. I'm sure a part of Dana or NFL or MLB does not truly want to test their (top) athletes, those guys are making them big money but do enough testing for good PR

I agree, but in time at least in theory they will finally get with the clean program and just win & fight on purely gifted and trained merit.

This sincerely might just be ideal, but just a thought on how they can start addressing more concisely the PED usage in the sport they test for anyway, but in very loose terms. Maybe precisely cause of them busting way more athletes which happen to be loved as well on top of losing the top prospects and champions, because of taking advantage of the wink-wink testing which is done, but any well knowledgeable guy like a Victor Conte can easily drive a 747 undetected through it's testing policies.

This would create a weird situation where the top 10 ranked fighters might actually be in the middle of the division performance-wise. Fighters would eat the horsemeat until they got to the top 10 then stop, and hope they don't get matched up with some juicebeast outside the top 10.

Agreed that random drug testing in some form is needed though.
