Brian Cushing – Trains WAYYY Too Hard

For serious?

I used to think that athletes who tested positive for performance enhancing drugs tainted their respective sports, but now I find myself enamored by it all.

For what reason you ask?

Is there anything better than the excuses that come out of the mouths of these guys? I mean honestly. Brian Cushing, last years Defensive Rookie of the Year, blames his positive test on the fact that he “overtrained.”  I’m not nearly clever enough to come up with this stuff.

Suspended Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing said Monday that his positive test for a fertility drug last year was the result of overtrained athlete syndrome, a “unique” condition he contends can trigger hormonal spikes.

It’s true, Brian Cushing, a man who was linked with steroids during his playing days at USC, has the only known case of “overtrained athlete syndrome” in the NFL.

Do the Houston Texans not have a publicist? Do they not proofread these statements before letting their athletes read them?

If anyone, you know, like Texans owner Bob McNair, actually believes this shit, then I’ve given up on the human population. Cancel everything, lets fast forward to 2012 and start over from scratch.

Oh, and for all you “regular” medical doctors out there, The Cush has something for you.

I had a unique situation where something like this occurred and we have the science to back it up. It’s taken months. It’s really beyond what we ever thought and it’s beyond the regular medical doctor.

I give up.

  1. I agree that it’s becoming very entertaining to hear the excuses from athletes. Well, entertaining, and also a slap in the face that they think we could actually believe that bullshit.

  2. I couldn’t find the link but I also read the USC report from a couple years back that linked Cush to roids. The pictures were so revealing. The fact that McNair is pushing for lesser punishment is atrocious

  3. Who are you to say he’s lying? While I don’t necessarily believe that he’s telling the truth, we don’t know the specifics of the situation. Do I think he took some sort of PED’s? Absolutely. Am I 100% sure? No. I think that by slamming the guy, we are hypocritical because then everything we say should be also be taken into question.

  4. @THT – Some of the things that people say absolutely blow my mind. You test positive for a fertility drug and now we are supposed to think you train too hard and that’s what triggered the positive test? right.

    While I agree that slamming him until we know all the facts is probably not the professional thing to do, it’s hard not to when people like Peter King of SI take what Cushing said, and then go and completely question it.

    I don’t believe much of anything an athlete says, and in this case Cushing, because what do they gain from telling the truth? IMO, they lose more than they gain. (ie. endorsements, public support)

    • “While I agree that slamming him until we know all the facts is probably not the professional thing to do, it’s hard not to when people like Peter King of SI take what Cushing said, and then go and completely question it.”

      I understand, but we don’t know whats true and what’s false. Again, I think he did it, but I think there is a lot of power in the written word. It’s hard to shake some things said about you and he’s doing his best to separate himself with the things that have been said about him. Whether or not the things he’s saying are true, that’s another story.

      • this story isn’t saying the writer can prove he is lying, it is saying he thinks he is lying. based on the overwhelming support of evidence. and the other doctors and the billion dollar corporation that not only researched the situation, but allowed him to appeal, re-researched, and then came to the conclusion that this guy is a cheating dickhead.

        besides, if you are going to complain about this i would like you to write a letter to every newspaper and website on earth and force them to reveal their “sources”, which half the time we all know are bullshit.

        you also seem to forget that cushing originally claimed he feared he had cancer, the tumors of course resulting in his elevated levels. which is even more fucking dumb than this excuse.

        and 8thly, cushing also can’t know or prove for sure this bullshit medical reason is correct, let alone know at all personally if he did in fact unknowingly ingest a banned substance, yet you dont care that he makes public statements about what he has “done” ?

  6. Oh, and also.

    “Cancel everything, lets fast forward to 2012 and start over from scratch.”

    This.
