I love lifting weights and love getting bigger but when shit like this happens its a whole different story, I would hate to walk on the streets knowing that everyone knows my arms are fake and exploded, just my opinion, people that take steroids put a bad look on any thing from football, to mma, to bodybuilding.JMO
Not dissing on your opinion at all here. Believe me, I agree with you.
The thing is that a lot of these guys who spend a ton of time in gyms are so exposed to the rampant use of steroids that it almost seems like it's only a matter of time until they use themselves. It's got to be so frustrating to work so hard and then see a guy get the same results in less than half the time. Plus, once you hit those peaks its so hard to get over some of them that it's an easy way out.
I guess I'm a bit more sympathetic about steroids than most people. It's just sad that they are so rampant in our society and it's a drug that the public has largely turned a blind eye toward. I mean, honestly- go ask any drug enforcement officer out there and most of them couldn't tell you the first thing about steroids.
The sad thing is that the more rampant their use is, the more it brings those guys who played it straight over to the user side. It upsets the whole balance of sports to the point where to be competitive you almost have to use. This is especially the case in American Football.
