All they proved is they could recreate a false positive, but I guarantee you they did not let a normal urine sample sit around for a few days and suddenly it came back with synthetic testosterone. If that was even in the realm of possibility it would take an immense amount of time, effort, and money to even come up with something like that.
His whole argument the whole time was the sample could have been tampered with it. I have no idea why you keep fighting this battle about a sample magically getting synthetic testosterone by sitting around for while. It simply does not happen. That is why they do a second test for synthetic testosterone after they find abnormal levels of testosterone. Testosterone levels can change over time skewing the ratio, but at no point does that cause production of synthetic testosterone.
His primary argument wasn't that his sample was tampered with.
