Fuck man. I hate Mayweather as well, but can you at least still call things down the middle? He doesn't fight Shane, you bag him, he fights Shane you are still being negative about the whole fight now back to your own article that you posted.
Also for the record, I haven't seen the whole article, or don't know how much of it you posted, but based on what I read from that. He ISN'T accusing this 'mystery' guy of being a steroid user. He is simply stating that you just don't know. His whole point was that a guy could end up in hospital with serious injuries, and because of the poor quality of testing, nobody will know if steroids or anything is involved.
It's no different if the government did not want to name registered sex offenders (not saying they don't, just being hypothetical), and I say that they should name them, how do I not know that my next door neighbour isn't a sex offender? I'm not suggesting that my neigbour is an offender, my point is that you don't know who is and who isn't.
Like I said, not sure how much of the article is posted, but if that's all it is, stop taking things out of context and be negative about the whole thing. You aren't happy about him fighting Mosley now, so who RIGHT now at this point would make you happy?
This isn't about my dislike of Mayweather. This is about someone making an accusation like that out of the fucking blue. Even with Pac, while I disagree with that whole thing, at least you could point to his ascension in weight and power, and say "well that looks weird".
This, there's no names being mentioned, and he's simply continuing to bring Pac's name into a conversation trying to convince the world that he was in the right. I'm not debating whether or not he was right in calling for blood testing with Pac. I've said before that I have zero problem with them making blood testing mandatory for all fighters.
But seriously. Does that not strike you as kinda off the wall that he would make that comment?
Not about Pac, Not about Shane, not about someone he's got an interest in, but just pulling it out of his ass, and pointing to a fighter who was put in the hospital and saying "well, if we had tested the other guy, he wouldn't be in the hospital right now"
That's not making any questions, that's flat out saying that that guy's in the hospital quite possibly because the other guy wasn't blood tested, in essence saying that other guy was on something. Because if they tested him, then they wouldn't have let him fight. How else would the end result be different? I don't think it's the same as the sex offender analogy you used.
I respect your opinions on things, Fitz, so if you think that there's nothing wrong with what he said, I'll accept your thoughts there. You don't seem to be an over the top Floyd fan, so unlike others on here I'd respect your thoughts, knowing it's not just blind endorsing of Floyd.
And this isn't blind hatred or anything on my part. I read that and I was shocked that someone would say that, whether it's Floyd, or Pac, or Chris fucking Byrd, my reaction would be the same.
And Fitz, the comment was in his interview with Sirius Radio. It's on Fighthype's front page.
