I don’t really want to get into a big debate on this whole steroid thing again, but just for disclosure reasons I thought I’d put it out there that I think Sean Sherk’s positive test for Nandrolone was caused by one of the several hundred different kinds of supplements he takes. Regardless, I still think this piece of news is stupid:
Sean Sherk passed a lie detector test saying that he did not knowingly use steroids. While certainly not conclusive, it can’t hurt his chances at getting his suspension over turned or at the very least reduced.
I’m not a lawyer (jeez, I have to say that a lot lately huh?) but I have watched several seasons of Law & Order, and one thing I can say as fact is that Jill Hennessey was the hottest Assistant DA on the show. In fact, if there was a God and there was a heaven, I would spend my days there engaged in a L&O DA orgy, with Jill taking the lead. Unfortunately my priest said that’s not the kind of thing that goes on in Heaven, and with that my faith crumbled. Now I just have a dark hole where my faith was.
The other thing I learned from Law & Order is polygraphs are bullshit and haven’t been considered valid since the last of the Communists were thrown out of this great nation of ours:
While some people believe that polygraph tests are reliable, there is little scientific evidence to support this claim. For example, while some claim the test to be accurate in 90% – 95% of the cases, critics charge that rather than a “test”, the method amounts to an inherently unstandardizable interrogation technique whose accuracy cannot be established. A 1997 survey of 421 psychologists estimated the test’s average validity at about 61%, a little better than chance.
So I have no idea what the fuck Sherk and his lawyers are trying to do with this polygraph crap. The only thing I can think of is that they’ve identified the supplement that was tainted and are now building their case around proving Sherk didn’t know it was tainted. Of course, Keith Kiezer has already laid out the practical approach to getting cleared of a steroid charge. But I guess since Sherk’s ruling is in California and the CSAC guys are morons, his shark lawyers must think this might work instead.
