If you're going to insist that Braun was guilty as sin in 2011 (again, I don't care) and that it absolutely boosted his performance, it leaves you in the uncomfortable position of explaining why he's been awesome all the way back to college. Seriously, this guy would need to be pretty much the best and most precocious PED user ever to pull it off. Good luck proving that.
The problem with damning Braun as a dirty player is you've got a lot of explaining to do. It requires an extensive narrative for which we don't have any evidence at this time. Brisco's one-time screw up suggestion at least makes sense, but then why keep kicking a dead horse?
Again you are acting like testing was hard to beat, it wasn't. I don't have any explaining to do because I really don't care if he was dirty, clean, or in between. But when presented with the question I have serious doubts regarding his innocence. You obviously don't.
