The more Sean Sherk talks about his ‘bogus’ steroids situation, the more I want to punch him in the face. Today he reiterated his dumbass position that he should be allowed to take whatever supplements he wants and if they’ve got steroids in them, that isn’t his problem:
He said a glucosamine supplement he took was later found to be contaminated with a testosterone booster. But he said if that’s how the steroid got into his body, he can’t understand how he should be held responsible for it.
“Even if it was a tainted supplement, I had no intentions of taking it and it was somebody else’s error,” Sherk said. “I think they should be at fault rather than me. Contamination of supplements is an issue. There have been people who have tested positive in the past for that reason, but I don’t think the fighter should be held responsible. It’s not the fighter’s fault.”
For someone who’s apparently paranoid about what goes into his body, Sean sure doesn’t seem to care that much about the fact that there’s a good amount of unmarked and illegal substances in his supplements.
There’s that gay old saying “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me” which I think applies to this situation perfectly. Sherk now IMPLICITLY KNOWS that supplements as a whole have a problem with being tainted and containing illegal substances. As far as he’s concerned, it’s not his problem. Which is about as dumb as can get.
Hey, I don’t really give a shit what happens to Sherk as a result of his retarded world views. But if he beats BJ Penn down the road and wins the title back, and THEN TESTS POSITIVE FOR STEROIDS AGAIN, I am going to go absolutely batshit insane.
