The good news is that Thigpen will now have to undergo regular testing, therefore, he will have to quit the juice. That should lead to a drop off in his play and his durability.

and it will help him in the long run...that stuff looks like it can do some nasty damage to the body...of course we have no idea how long and often he was using the stuff.

It was developed by the Soviet era East Germans and was their preferred steroid because it gave athletes some pretty remarkable improvements quickly, and showed little of the nasty side effects of other steroids of the time. It is now a black market lab designer steroid that is not used by body builders because it is more for building lean muscle. It is the preferred steroid for those looking to improve their speed, with a safer than most steroid effect, and very hard to detect in urine testing. It does not add big mass to the body like most steroids according to the articles I have read, but East German sprinters saw some huge improvements after using it. A cycle of this steroid is apparently quite costly and pretty hard to get your hands on.

I think it's safe to assume that Thigpen may not be as quick as he was last year.

yeah for the performance enhancing drugs should be a 6 game suspension...first offence...10 second...3rd year ban
Party drugs...2 is fine to start

So if another Rider gets stung...are we gonna hear conspiracy cries coming from that idiotic fan base...saying the league is only testing riders?? or something to that affect...

Probably not. However, he is now on the wrong side of 30 and had some bad injury trouble in the NFL.

When athlete start to get older, sometimes they need an extra "boost" to help them keep up with the younger guys.

Or when they've been sitting on the couch at home, not involved in any sort of professional sport and are magically able to play for Riders almost immediately.

Very good article, shockingly from a man who covers the Riders insinuating that two Riders on the same drug helped the Riders to within a sniff of the Grey Cup seems fishy.

He also flat out mocks the use of the *cough *cough "injured" list to stash players at full salary.

Refreshing!!

Different drugs and one Campbell took was not a steroid, but was a PED.
