He's making Junie Browning seem intelligent.

Jon should hire a publicist and be quiet. I've said before that I'd be a fan of HW jones but until then it's more fun to not be.

a fan.

I hope Dan gets the KO then becomes a paid spokesman for TRT and lands huge deals with Geritol and Preparation-H.

Yes, Jones needs to talk less. Whether a guy is a fighter or not, there are medical reasons for a doctor to legitimately prescribe TRT. He doesn't know it at 25, but when JBJ's is in his 40's and suffering real symptoms of low T levels, he'll probably understand a little more. If the governing bodies could keep medical needs versus using it for advantage in check, then it shouldn't be a problem. No fighter should complain that another fighter shouldn't have NORMAL levels. I don't know enough about it to say how they keep it in check, but if it is only at normal levels, then what is the problem. If a fighter naturally has above average T levels, should he not be allowed to fight?

TRT should be for normal people? What does that even mean? If any other champ said that I would still be scratching my head.
I think what he meant by "normal" people is people who aren't competing in a professional sport, like us.

I personally disagree with him, medicine and everything else in general is evolving so it's good for the Hendersons of the world to be able to keep making a living in doing what they love when they should be retired, aslong as they're within limits, of course. That doesn't mean he's wrong though, it's his opinion.

That's pretty arrogant, if that's what he meant. Sounds as if he is implying they are better than "normal" because they are professional.

Granted, they are far from normal athletes. That is what Jon should have said. "TRT should not be used at the professional athlete level...."

Oh well. Nit pickers will nit pick (like me). I'm still a huge Jones fan.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I don't that much about Trt, but say if Kobe Bryant took Trt right now would his game be better?

Yes. According to many posters, it makes you as powerful as God, but as evil as the devil.

I pretty much "dislike" you man...but i agree on this one 100%.

everything that Joned says is put through 1000000 filters. If he makes a small pause between 2 phrases...that certainly means something: depending on who he is fighting, it's either arrogance, disrespect, cockiness or other bulshit.

8 Jones threads on the first page.

Daaaaaaaaaaamn...

The attention he gets is unreal...

PS: WAR BONES!!!

Probably.
