Pi this my people. Yall know me! I'm down with O-P-P! I got a gut feeling that Jimmy Lampley is going to open up a can of whup@ss on and turn a BRIGHT, BRIGHT LAMP on the continuation of the hot subject of get down with the roids and the PEDs. Being ectomorph once was an expected and noticeable part of the game, because of losing weight to make the weight division's limit. It ain't so now!!! And that is why upper of 75 percent of nowadays pugilists are on roids and PEDs. Oh, YUP! Those ___ ____ ___ are juicing, deep breathing, injecting and creaming and rubbing. The Powers that be are not going into accusing jack nuffin.' It is all about da moola, so they're just gonna take a buffin.' In plain SIGHT on HBO 24/7 Team Marquez was hiding syet. Alternate remedies for assisting training my ARSE! Fallin' Angel [fudging demonyo] Heredia is slick and quick. And is always up pulling a trick. That glass therapy seen on HBO 24/7 was disguising roids creaming and rubbing. That breathing in the oxygen chamber was just an old trick to hide vapor breathing in of roids. I'm reminded of how Luis Resto told his story of about how trainer Panama Lewis use to crush asthma pills and feed 'em to fighters. What HBO 24/7 need to do is cut out the bullsyetology and subpoena the evidence hidden in plain sight. Yall know what goes down in Mexico. Every damn cheat known to humanity. And roids and PEDs didn't physically assist Marquez with winning. His skill did that. See the cat did the roids-and-PEDs thang [sic] for aesthetic as a backup plan to influence nowadays judges, fanboys, scribes, talking heads, etc., etc. Nowadays pugilists are on dat syet to win the hearts and minds of judges, scribes and fanfaronades, who are madly in deep love with the Hulk-and-Hercules buffed-up LOOK! Da game is full of optical illusions. This is one before the fight even STARTS! Holler at some close decisions and rotten ones for the last few years. The once-adored-ectomorphic fighter is on the losing end 90 percent of the time. WHY??? You don't have to be 2011 TSS ROTY Doc [psychogist] Mortcola to figure out what's behind this trend/behavior. Clearly the myth that big is better and that muscle-boundness is stronger, better, more aesthetically appealing and da BOMB than slightly and/or no muscular development is ruling da game nowadays. It is just like the Miss Universe Beauty contests nowadays. Flat-arse damsels, dames and dolls use to be in, but now if they are not packing much bootah, dey are lacking and will be the first contestants to get shellacking. The hurt bitnezz is now more of a beauty bitnezz for body looking good, than for hurting dat arse. Straight-up too many of the pugilists nowaday are gettin' tore up from da flo' up wif doze roids and PEDs to get dat look, so dey can get an edge up. And I ain't gonna shut da fudge up. Yall kno' me! I'm down wif [sic] O-P-P! Get 'em Jimmy Lampley! Holla!

-SouthPaul :

Kill the story on PED, instead do a peice on the strangle hold Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions has on the sport & how it's preventing some of the more compelling bouts from being made. Sit both Arum and Richard Schaefer in between Lampley..force them to address the differences. If that gets no where ..have them duke it out with 8 ounce cleto Reyes loaded up with titanium brass knuckles.

-Radam G :

Ain't gonna be no haps fo' dat, SouthPaul. Moola FIRST! Moola in da MIDDLE! Moola LAST! Ain't'na d@mn thang funneee! Ya' hap' ta' make dat monnney ta' live in diz world of milk and honnnnney! That is why at every level, you have crooks. And dey care about doze looks. Buffed-up roids-and-PEDs looks bring much moola, and keep 'em promoting big wigs from havin' ta' cook da books. FACE IT! Don't MACE IT! We live in the time of guys havin' to be Hulked up to get paid up. Gals havin' to be bootay-licious to get laid up. Hehehe! Holla!

-SouthPaul :

Well, in that case, whoever wins TSS year end forum awards I expect PED testing. Too much great stuff said this year ..ain't no way you could've done so without doping!

-Radam G :

Hehehe! You are a roid of sneak cracks. Hahaha! I could imagine Editor Mike telling Deepwater to pi$$ in this bottle, put some crap on this popcicle-like stick and make a fist and "don't cry like a bytch while I'm drawing blood." Those of the combo ways to catch dat jive dat cannot help you fights. But turns you into eye candy for da freaky-dee-kees. I cannot even imagine Deepwater's slick, quick comical retort to Editor Mike. Haha! Holla!:confused:

-Schteeeve :

I love Lampley's no-nonsense approach. He's what every journalist should strive to be: a respectful skeptic.
