    those who are major against PEDs but big fans of guys like DC, Conor, GSP, etc.

    Would you still root and support your favorite fighter if they had a slip up with usada?

    PEDs should be legal.

    I would hold the needle and help him shoot up.

    That's what true fans do.

    I laugh out loud at the ones who consider PED an issue in 2019.

    The only issue is that great fights are being canceled and great fighters are being sidelined still

    My favorite fighter is Overeem.

    He was the heavyweight GOAT on the horse injectables.

    I give some of them a BOTD like i did with cheaters like Jones(The first time) , but if you test numerous times you are a fucking cheater and cant be in the GOAT discussions.
    Going back to the topic i will root for GSP if he tested positive but i wont consider him the GOAT(Which he clearly is) but he would never cheat anyways so thats just hypothetical .

    No.

    You have to accept that most of the athletes you've watched during your lifetime were on some form of PED if they were one of the best in the world at their sport. If I didn't like PED users I would have to nuke the entire NFL from my viewing habits.

    Only if they made a big deal about being clean beforehand.

    "We"?

    That's cool. You were one of the pioneers to make the abbreviation "lol"?

    No I care about the fighting in the ring or cage.
    I don’t care about the person they are generallly.
    There are always exceptions to that.

    A few decades ago you wouldn’t know anything about the boxer or fighter.

    When you get to the pinnacle
    If athletics you have bent every rule to your benefit along the way.

    No a fighter has to do something massively fucked up like rape someone for me to turn on the over one transgressions
