ANOTHER VICTOR CONTE CLIENT TESTS DIRTY!

June 26th, 2012 By Pedro Fernandez

GUYS AROUND VICTOR CONTE ARE TESTING POSITIVE

Victor Conte

San Francisco, CA- There is little doubt today, that if you’re an athlete hooked up with Victor Conte, head of Sports Nutrition for Advanced Conditioning, formerly of BALCO Labs, then you tend to come under a great deal of scrutiny in regards to Performance Enhancing Drugs. Marion Jones, former Olympic gold medalist, went to jail for committing perjury regarding her steroid use. Barry Bonds, former San Francisco Giant and all-time Major League Baseball home run leader, was placed under house arrest regarding his not telling the truth under oath about steroids.

Andre Berto

BERTO HAD “TRACE ELEMENTS” OF “SUICIDAL STEROID”

Andre Berto, former world boxing champion, tested positive for steroids a fortnight ago, that’s why Josesito Lopez was called in at the last minute to take on and upset Victor Ortiz on Saturday night. The drug Nandrolene, or some “trace elements” of it were found in Berto’s system. This steroid stays the longest in a an athlete’s system and is akin to committing “athletic suicide” if you know you’re going to be tested as it can stay with you from 18 months to two years.

CONTE’S ONLY KNOWN BASEBALL CLIENT SUSPENDED!

Now another one of Conte’s clients, Marlon Byrd, formerly of the Chicago Cubs, now with the Boston Red Sox, has been suspended for 50 games for testing positive for steroid-related drugs. Now a lot of people say whether smoke there’s fire, but I disagree this time. Look, Conte worked with David Rodriguez, head case, steroid user, and undefeated heavyweight pretender. From that I have to tell you I think his heart is in the right place as he worked for free with Rodriguez for almost a month trying to get them cleaned up steroid wise, as well as mentoring David both physically and emotionally. After that experience, my impression was that David wasted Victor’s time and his manager Bob Spagnola’s money.

MARLON BYRD ISSUES STATEMENT


Marlon Byrd

“I made an inexcusable mistake. Several years ago, I had surgery for a condition that was private and unrelated to baseball. Last winter, I suffered a recurrence of that condition and I was provided with a medication that resulted in my positive test. Although that medication is on the banned list, I absolutely did not use it for performance-enhancement reasons.”

BYRD SAYS CONTE HAD “NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS”

In regards to Conte, who must have an Excedrin-type of headache of late, “Victor had nothing to do with this,” Byrd told USA TODAY Sports in a text message. “He didn’t know about me taking Tamoxifen or the positive test until two days ago.” Tamoxifen, known in the United States is Nolvadex, blocks the effects of the estrogen hormone in the body. It is used to treat breast cancer in women or men and is used by steroid users to prevent the growth of breast tissues in men and to stop post-cycle crashes.

AM I IGNORING MY OWN BASIC INTINCTS?

In closing, being a former law enforcement officer, I don’t believe in coincidences. That being said, I do believe that Conte is clean in all this. Look, Victor is a type of guy that sizes you up. If there is something to glean from you, he is more than likely work with you. That’s Victor, plain and simple.

DON’T BELIEVE CONTE WOULD RISK MORE PRISON OR HIS NAME

But I just can’t believe that he would give his clients nowadays anything illegal. Although I’ve known Conte since his days playing bass with Tower Of Power, all I can say is that during the time I spent around him since his BALCO days were over and is now running SNAC, Victor didn’t do anything that would make me, and I looked, even slightly suspicious of him.

COMMENTS

  1. Pretty sure Conte isn’t behind this. The guy knows more about steroids than the people on the lookout for them. No way he gives Nandrolone and Tamoxifen to his clients. I mean come on, a rookie wouldn’t do that… Berto was juicing long before Conte. The torn bicep is the clue, same as Toney and same drug… No way Conte is giving these to his clients, it would make absolutely no sense at all. There should be lie detector tests given when people fail and say they didn’t juice… You’ll see 99% of them decline that one…

  2. Martin, break out the Polygraph machines…good idea….but the line to take them would indeed be short!

  3. Pedro,

    First off I want to say: great title; It totally sucked me in! I definitely believe that Conte is on the straight and narrow now. I agree with Martin’s post. Conte has nothing to gain from juicing his clients. If I was still playing football, I’d probably contact Conte, or at least order some of his SNAC products. Keep up the great work!

    Blessings,
    Micah

  4. How come you guys are so “understanding”of Victor Conte? Why give him a slack when he got a bad records you can look at?

    And yet, condemned Manny Pacquiao of “suspected” PED use when you got no proof to show at all?

    I am now beginning to suspect Nonito Donaire of PED use. I will not be surprise if we found out one of these days that indeed Donaire is found guilty of using PED/steroid.

  5. I just think he is smarter than the guys testing, he wouldn’t get beat if he did. Plus, he’s married in the last couple of years and I don’t think Victor would ever again risk going to prison again. I think he’s straight on the drugs.

  6. I know he’s a friend and all, but come on. How many of his clients have been caught lately?

  7. We don’t talk. David Rodriquez killed that, so there is nothing to gain by me talking openly about Mr. Conte.
