Five players tested dirty at eCamp

The five players are: linebackers Jonathan Langa and Marvin Golding, defensive back Kayin Marchand-Wright, as well as receivers Melvin Abankwah and Matthew Norzil. Langa, Golding, Marchand-Wright and Abankwah all played at Saint Mary's University last season while Norzil was a member of the Laval Rouge et Or.
Come to SMU, party, get a fake degree and do steroids !

Ah yes ! The loaded supplement excuse :lol:

"I fully accept responsibility of the stanozolol metabolite and methandienone in my test," Langa wrote in his email to all nine CFL teams. "I am sorry that I was not c[b]areful enough to know there were banned ingredients in the supplements I was taking. [/b]It was not my intention to use a banned substance."

That's quite the supplement that had stanazolol in it :roll: :lol: :lol:
You know come to think of it, I have the exact same problem with my Flintstones Chewables. Every now and then, the company slips in some HGH by mistake.

Langa's girlfriend used his supplements in her shake. She's really not happy.

Effects of methandienone on the performance and body composition of men undergoing athletic training.

Abstract

  1. In a previous study of the effects of methandienone (Dianabol) on men undergoing athletic training, strength and performance increased, but not significantly more when the subjects were taking the drug than when they were taking placebo. The subjects did, however, gain more weight on the drug, with increases in total body potassium and muscle dimensions. It remained an open question whether the muscles had gained normal tissue or intracellular fluid. 2. In an attempt to distinguish between these possibilities the trial has been repeated, using as subjects seven male weight-lifters in regular training, and including measurements of total body nitrogen. As before, a dose of 100 mg of methandienone/day was given alternately with the placebo in a double-blind crossover experiment. The treatment periods lasted 6 weeks and were separated by an interval of 6 weeks. Body weight, potassium and nitrogen, muscle size, and leg performance and strength increased significantly during training on the drug, but not during the placebo period. 3. The finding of increased body nitrogen suggested that the weight gain was not only intracellular fluid. The increases in body potassium (436 +/- SEM 41 mmol) and nitrogen (255 +/- 69 g) were too large in proportion to the weight gain (2.3 +/- 0.4 kg) for this to be attributed to gain of normal muscle or other lean tissue, and imply gain of nitrogen-rich, phosphate-poor substance. Although this action of methandienone might be described as anabolic, the weight gain produced is not normal muscle.

Gadzooks!

I wish I could un-see that. puke

Here is what Anthony Coombs said on Twitter:

"The @CFL should punish players better who use PED instead of turn a blind eye some of us ACTUALLY work really hard to improve our game."

Rob Maver replied, but his reply seemed like a response to someone not even in the CFL. Anyway, I wonder if Coombs is implying there are a few cheaters, or is he saying usage is not uncommon?

CFL tested all of the ecamp competitors and have to work within the framework agreed by the CFLPA.

I think it should start with the CIS programs. SMU tested only TWO of its players during the season (likely two they knew weren't risks). After they received news that four of their players had tested dirty they "randomly :roll: " tested nine (likely players they suspect could embarrass their program).

So the CFL is doing more than the CIS schools or the CFLPA to protect the integrity of the game from cheaters.
