  • We stumbled over here different web address and thought I might check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to going over your web page repeatedly.

  • This report if false and untrue. Bourousis was never suspended for any such doping ever. This is a blatantly false and libelous article and the website needs to remove it.

  • It is amazing that this article still remains here after it was proven so long ago that Bourousis never doped and was only joking in a private phone call with his father in law, in which neither of them knew they were being taped.

    In which he passed numerous drug tests after the incident that he took voluntarily and yet such an article like this still remains here.

    So sad and pathetic. This site really should be ashamed.
