It's a lot of planning and execution and, to date, no one's found any trail he left behind. And you don't get to call 2011 the tip of Braun's iceberg without, you know, producing evidence of the actual iceberg.
Your story is mostly holes. And this is the problem Braun's accusers have. If you want to argue he was guilty that one time in 2011, then we're back to dead horse kicking. If you want to argue he's been using his whole life, it's all accusation and no evidence.
That's just nonsense. No offense, but you have no idea what you are talking about. Athletes have been beating the system for decades. It's really not that hard. Actually, catching an offender is harder and rarer. It requires perfect timing by the league. If Braun is an evil genius, than so is Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, J.C. Romero, A-Rod, Edinson Volquez, Marlon Byrd and dozens of other players.
And Braun surely had help in college. All big time college programs have tons of money and support, and volumes have been written about how college locker rooms are more like labs. Doping is a major part of sports, both pro and college. it's everywhere that money can be made.
