It's no longer a blue world, Max. Where could we go?



I guess in my personal bleeding heart commie sensabilities I do agree with the sentiment that rampant deregulation is one of America's problems, but I feel that the dudebro supplement industry is way the gently caress down on that list to the point of being hilariously trivisl to even bring up

the American government not bothering to check what's in the supplements its citizens are putting into their mouths and its refusal to punish bad actors because it might be bad for the bottom line is definitely a great example of why this country is trash. if we had a functioning free market economy where information was actually available to consumers, instead of a situation where firms could operate under government approved obscurantism until they kill someone, Jon Jones would likely still be fighting.

I do expect the supp market to be a lot less wild wild west once Orrin Hatch leaves the senate because a lot of. This is due to legislation he's fiercely protective of that prevents these companies from ever facing any liability. This is because he represents corporations from Utah where the huge supply of young dudes comfortable going door to door selling people religion has made Utah the MLM capital of the world for companies like lifevantage or whatever and regulating them would be Bad for Business.

America is a lootocracy and this is a great example of why

That's what I'd think for a normal person but Nick thought he'd never paid taxes in his life because any kind of responsibility in his life has to be delegated, so it doesn't surprise me that he's loving up his life because he assumed that one of his hangers on was pressing the have a career button on their smartphone but it still sucks

Looking forward to Jon's dipshit management telling everyone he expects to be fighting soon then spending a million dollars on a marathon arbitration hearing that gets him both the maximum suspension as well as a written statement by the guys he just paid saying what a colossal dumbass he is

I loved the official's written decision after the dick pill thing where the guy or girl writing it clearly thought the excuse was a load of poo poo but appeared to not be able to say it because of the parties submitting an agreed set of facts

Penne has been suspended for 18 months for steroids. She was apparently taking some supplement at the direction of a doctor who was unfamiliar with the needs of UFC athletes. She tried to get a retroactive TUE, but couldn't get it because that supplement was not medically necessary.

Cyborg got it for a medication and not an IV. She is also more important than Penne and more likely to get leniency in the name of profits.

Cyborg also took an actual medication for a bona-fide medical condition. Penne took a sketchy supplement because a doctor said "hey, I think this supplement is good".

If I recall the thread conversation back then the reason for using the medication was a real stretch and it also had a reputation for being used as a PED or masking agent. Also come on its Cyborg.

The Cyborg TUE conversation is what the second Jones failure would sound like if he weren't a complete dumbass -- most likely a doping cover-up but with that veneer of medical authority.
