I can appreciate that yes, I imagine player obtain PEDs in less than honorable ways, but no one is really belaboring that point.
So it seems a bit much to say "you are accusing them of crimes". Which you did in order to make your example work.
Yes, technically it is possible that it worked out that way. That was the Edinson Volquez story. A doctor prescribed him something and then he tested positive for it (though he tested positive for a non-PED, what he tested positive for was something used as a masking agent for PED).
Point is, I hate when people are accusing people of cheating or even downright breaking the law without a single shred of evidence other than "they got better or look bigger" and "other people did it before".
