And tbh the Rory is on steroids seems to be mostly a mmaforum thing. I wouldn't be surprised if Rory has no idea that people actually think he is roiding. So he might not have thought anything g of his comment.

I'm not saying he's on them at all. I always give them the benefit of the doubt.

It's like at a real job, you never want to complain, ever. If you have the crappiest day at work you never want to complain, if there's a problem you deal with it like a grown up but complaining about anything never ever provides positive results. The reason is it taints people's perspective of you, it lets them think the negative things about you that they want. It's a chink in the armor, it lets the haters hate. I know it seems stupid but you can work your way up the ladder in most companies by always being positive, if you are the best at your job and bring a negative attitude you'll get fired eventually if your negative attitude starts effecting other people. If somebody knocks on your door for a random drug test you piss in the cup, close the door and get on with the day. That one comment will incriminate him to all the BJ nuthuggers that want a reason to hate on Rory.

If he was asked a question he should have said that he pissed in the cup and then forgot about it even if it ruined his day. If there's anything he can do about it sure make a fuss and bring it up with people who have the power, but that's not at all what he accomplished.

Even if Rory has been using a PED I bet he has still been working 10x as hard as BJ for this fight. just sayin.

I hope Rory isn't juicing (he's not) because he might actually murder Penn in the cage.

Honestly man we are just gonna have to agree to disagree on this. I consider your comparison incredibly silly/ridiculous so that pretty much confirms that we wont see eye to eye on this.

Vada has nothing to do with the UFC. They dont pay Rory. Rory does not have to impress them. He does not work for them.

The only reason he is a part of it is because it was a stipulation BJ Penn put out there and Rory wanted to fight BJ so he chose to accept. Not to mention that if Rory backed out of it then everyone would be accusing him of doing steroids. So he really had no choice but to put up with it and say okay. He probably found the whole thing annoying to begin with.

So he is just giving us an honest answer of what he thinks about being randomly woken up in the morning to take a piss test. And for a fighter a good nights rest is almost as important as the work out itself.

The people who think thats any type of evidence that he does steroids have their minds already made up on him.

For example you ask me if I murdered someone and I respond,

"Nope"

is much better than

"I'm sick of questions like this, it's annoying, it ruins my routine I wish you'd just leave me alone"

every single word he utters on the matter makes him look worse. The best way to handle it was how Brock Lesnar did, saying no and then not talking about it more, made him seem not guilty.
Well..., assuming the fact he never once said anything about the test themselves, only how and when they are taken, you example is stupid.

A less stupid form of your example would be, midday during your free time, you are questioned, "Did you murder someone?" You answer calmly and politely, "Nope."

You are woken up early in the morning, "Did you murder someone?" "No I didn't ******* murder someone! Why the **** are you bothering me with this dumb shit? Leave me the **** alone!"

To summarize, being annoyed or pissed off by the timing of something does not mean you have a problem with that thing in itself. I'm willing to bet that if they would've brought him in for testing during lunch or after, he'd have no problem with it.

probably they took this statement out of context. Journalist ask him some question about the testing and shit he said what he thought about it.

this. Nailed it right there. It is just the timing he was frustrated about. I hate being waken up in my sleep for stuff that can safely wait for another couple of hours. If I, who mostly does nothing but sit in front of a computer for most of the day, hate it that much, a guy who practices his heart out and is counting on a good night's sleep would be much more frustrated.

Exactly.

And a murder example is such a horrible comparison. But if i knew i didnt do anything and they were coming in to my house and waking me up in the morning every month or so to take a lie detector test. That would be EXTREMELY annoying.

Rory Macdonald is not trying to pull out of it. He is just pointing out that being woken up randomly early in the morning is annoying. Which what person in his right mind wouldn't be annoyed by that??

Correct sir.

You guys said everything i said but maybe in slightly better wording.

Rory is doing nothing wrong here. People who are ragging on him because of this are doing so because they have their minds already made up on him and they basically want him to pop positive so they can be right.
