how does a "roider" act? Aside from the "rage" that we see?
Rage. GSP is too calm. Koscheck couldn't get under his skin at all. I think if GSP was roiding, he might have been more aggravated.

i think roiders have to have a certain blase attitude toward their body, as in, willing to prostitute themselves for profit or fame,

gsp doesn't seem cheap like that, he's too proud and protective of his body to do that

i could see cain roiding to stay on top
i could see kos roiding to beat gsp

I don't see Koz beating GSP if he even chewed a can of spinach (including the can).. before walking into the cage...

Do you think it's always that overt though?

I mean, don't get me wrong, I totally agree that a lot of people will cheat just to get the fame and money, but I don't think it's always a case of guys viewing it as cheating. There is a large group of people who don't see it as any different from taking over the counter supplements. Actually, a lot of people who use steroids properly are in great shape, and can stay in great shape much later in life too.

I think the thing with us as fans is obviously that we feel like using these drugs can give one fighter a distinct advantage over another who doesn't chose to use them. There are some exceptions though, and not all people who drop a dirty drug test are always trying to cheat. It just seems that more and more nowadays when guys get busted, their explanations are murky and full of inconsistencies. Thus, it seems even when a mere smidgen of doubt is raised about somebody, failed test or not, it can create a bunch of controversy and tarnish a person's career.

I don't think there is any way to try to guess who would be the next. We can list fighters we have a bitter taste for due to them beating the crap outta someone who a person liked.. (Cain vs Brock) LMAO..And try to predict they are a roider, because they fought good... However I know GSP will always be greaser boy to me..

The difference with Pacquiao is that he has never tested positive for any banned substances. Instead, it's just rampant speculation based on his reluctance to submit to the blood testing demands of Mayweather. Actually, if I am not mistaken, Pacquiao came out and said that now he will do the testing and even give blood in between rounds if that's what Floyd wants. However, the speculation still remains because of how shady the first round of negotiations were. Also, I'm sorry, but I don't buy Manny Pacquiao acting like he doesn't know what steroids are. People who get elected to congress should know better than to try the playing stupid approach.
