Again, I'm still not saying it potentially can't. I'm saying ethically, and legally we cant discriminate because of a legitimate medical deficiency. I say ethically because it is a legitimate medical issue. It may not be for everyone involved in TRT at this time, but we can't punish the ones it is a problem for because someone abused the system.
I understand where your coming from. But I'm making it clear, anyone on trt, whether they like it or not, or even want it, they have an advantage, even over young bucks. Being on trt means a daily dose of steroids (testosterone) which brings their levels above normal. If trt meant only getting to a max of 1:1 ratio, why even declare it? They'd pass all tests anyway.
As for hendo in particular, I wouldn't call him a cheat. I believe he's doing everything he can to stay legal with the condition he has. But does he take steroids? Yes. Does he gain an advantage? Yes. Even if he hates having it.
