    TRT (opens a can of worms)

    Post  KalDog on Mon May 20, 2013 10:26 pm

    I'll keep this short and sweet

    TRT, I know what it is and what it does.....

    What I don't get is, why do people blame dislike every fighter that's on it? Yes, it may give them an advantage, however, if the athletic commissions have ruled fighters can use it then who are we to judge?

    Shouldn't we be pissed off with the system and not the fighter?

    On a side note, I would make an educated guess and say the majority of fighters are on or have used in the past some form of "not over the counter" supplement

    Yep,completely agree,the system is to blame,if the fighters are staying with in the rules set by that commission,then they've done nothing wrong IMO.

    If tomorrow they all banned TRT use and that fighter gets caught using in there next fight,then they are cheating,simple.

    fans don't treat fighters the same who are on it,Randy,Hendo etc don't get a tenth of the shit other fighters that are on it do.

    it's the same with weed and all other stuff,if the rules state it's not allowed in your system and you test positive for it,you suffer the consequences of your actions.

    If they allow it,then toke away my friends.

    I think Exactly what pain said. Hendo and Randy are Murican heros, no one but no one gave a fuck about them on TRT.

    Really anyone who is on it is only allowed to bring themselves up to a level playing field. Doctors and comissions and people in suits decide what this Level playing field is. Fans who arent PHD in a related science shouldnt have a strong opinion.

    Who really knows about these T and O levels in great deail? Sonnen and Overeem failed for taking too much of some stuff = Bad Guys. Randy, Hendo, Belfort all have been withing limits = Good Guys.

    Also Belfort has been as straight talking as Hendo and Randy... and Matt Hughes if im not wrong have been. No one has exactly been publically singing its praises from the rooftops who has been on it.

    Vitor is no differnt, its clearly a positive thing on these guys and if a Doctor isnt declaring them supermen with an unfair advantage ill be happy for Vitor to keep delivering highlight reel KOs Very Happy

    Woah, look how young Vitor is in that photo with Ali.

    Dunno, I've seen on other sites the stick Vitor is getting, it's like he's the second coming of hitler.

    Yeah, he's looke frickin awesome in his last few fights but TRT isn't teaching him to kick people's heads off

    Definitely a poor system - to me it's either all or nothing. Everybody does or nobody does, including those who claim to need it.

    Weed is going to become a difficult one especially in states where it is now legal. And with the medical aspect as well...

    Id say theres a good chance of Weed being Legal in our lifetimes I think it will be less and less of an issue as time goes by. More States will legalise or medically legalise it even and fighters can smoke when they fight in those states.

    I agree about the even playingfield but thats too Idealistic, do fighters at greg jacksons know more about and take 10X more legal supliments than fighers from the red devil sports club in russia? Yes, im certain of it.

    Creatine, Protein supliments etc.. some fighters in the 1st world will readily have access to these things, more knowledge about body building etc.. and thats the same across all sports. Some Ugandan figter who trains in a hut with his dad isnt on a level playing field to GSP with his team of scientists behing him. Even look at the Olympics there were all sorts of accusations about the Cinese using Hormones to alter their athletes.

    Drugs/Medicine etc. are and will always be a big part of sport and we can never truely have a level playingfield. Your Diet and what supliments you take a a part of the sport, some fighers dont get it or arent interested but others want every physical advantage they can get and thats not just confined to MMA, its in every physical sport.
