And no, the sample couldn't have literally just sat around for years without affecting the integrity of the test as someone earlier suggested.
You completely ignored my point. He tested positive for synthetic testosterone. That does not happen magically, no matter how long it sits. The only way that gets in a sample is either someone tampered with it or he was taking synthetic testosterone. You can belabor the point all you want, but it does not answer how synthetic testosterone got into his sample.
I am not saying he should have been found guilty. Protocol is there for a reason, and the integrity of that must be defended even if it means a guilty man is found innocent. Yet if you believe Braun is innocent, then you have to believe the sample was tampered with. It was not because it sat around too long.
