    Full listing of sanctions since USADA was brought in. Interesting to see that for the same PED there were different suspension times.

    Haven't seen any updates on Ben Rothwell since he was flagged in May, not even an article interviewing him about it. Searched threads on here too and couldn't find anything after Sept. Any info on him?

    Barnett in a similar way is in limbo too though has spoken publicly multiple times about his lack of trust in USADA.

    Rothwell is likely going through arbitration. USADA is barred from saying anything about it unless Rothwell or his camp do, an even they they're restricted in what they can say before a suspension comes out.

    Also, if you go to the UFC's USADA portal, you don't need to mess with filtering by sport.

    Thanks for the brief note, is there other info that I'm missing not on the USADA site? There are a few that have been caught with Ostarine for the first time and have had different penalties.

    Thanks just surprised there hasn't been any comment on it for that amount of time, would be good to see him back in the HW division.

    A lot of the ostarine suspensions are cases like Romero, Means, and Good where they could show they had a contaminated supplement, and it was backed up by testing an unopened box (purchased by USADA, not the fighter or their team) from the same lot. So they'll reduce the sanction in some cases. In others, they either didn't keep track of what they'd taken, or were actually intentionally taking it, so they'd get more time.

    FWIW the average time from violation to decision is 168 days. Rothwell's at 371 days and Barnett's at 446 (those are the 2 longest outstanding cases.

    Normally what makes things take longer is Arbitration (which has only happened a few times) or fighter's claiming "tainted supplements". Mir for instance went the tainted supplement route and it took 377 days to announce the decision that they didn't believe him.

    FYI, Jones "Dick Pill" case went through arbitration but only took 125 days, whereas this time we're at 200+ days and still no USADA decision (due to Jones' delays). I doubt he'll ask for arbitration so we should know the final decision (4 years) within the next few weeks (I predict it'll be announced right before/after the announcement of Conor's next fight).

    53 players per team x 32 teams = 1696 players (not including practice squad players).

    Good luck hunting all of those players down for random drug tests!!

    Glad to see Brandon Moreno didn't get penalized, street tacos are full of clenbuterol here.

    Yeah, cause handling the 13,000 Olympic athletes is easy, but 1700 all within the US would be impossible?

    Lol @ thinking Olympic drug testing is the same as USADA’s random drug testings year round. Nice try, kid.

    You really don't have a clue do you?

    Seriously, tell me you're trolling and not actually that stupid? Tell me, why does USADA test bobsledders in the middle of summer? Why'd they do 606 tests just in the first quarter (i.e. winter) of 2017 on Track and Field athletes?

    Just in case you ARE that dumb, but teachable:
    In 2017 USADA did 12,754 tests
    In 2016 USADA did 12,756 tests
    In 2015 USADA did 10,545 tests

    To quote USADA: "An important part of USADA’s testing program is the ability to test athletes without any advance notice in an out-of-competition setting. Athletes are subject to testing 365 days a year and do not have “off-seasons” or cutoff periods in which testing does not occur." Hell, just in the 4th quarter of 2017 USADA did 2208 Out-of-Compeition tests.


    USADA oversees the testing of athletes worldwide, yet you think they couldn't handle 1700 NFL players?

    I know you're an idiot when it comes to GSP, but didn't realize it's more a general retardation with you.

    UFC = 400 fighters
    NFL = 1700 players

    1700 > 400

    they already have trouble tracking down 400 fighters, now add another 1700 more NFL players on top of that, you really are that dumb aren't you?
