Byrd is not coming clean but he says he's an idiot for getting caught taking Tamoxifen. Tamoxifen is a chemo drug given to breast cancer survivors to reduce estrogen levels where the cancer cells were shown to be estrogen sensitive (stimulates growth). Now Byrd talks about breast enlargement. Ha! Why enlarged?...because of steroid use, you idiot! Steroids increase estrogen levels and tamoxifen reduces it. It also reduces related water retention.
Byrd should have come clean. Instead, he gives a half truth...talking about seemingly innocent Tamoxifen without talking about why he need to take it...to offset the roids. We don't need any cheats, especially those without the guts to come clean.
Great post, Marv.
It cracks me up all these flimsy excuses PED users come up with. Manny Ramirez gave similar lame excuses when he was caught taking hCG.
Jim, speaking of smoke screens a good analogy is seen across college campuses every day. Kids are telling the truth when they say they burned incense, but of course it's to cover the smell from all the joints they just smoked.
Marv is correct, Byrd is telling a half-truth.
