    can we have more on this story, please? at least find out what Greg has to say about this infraction and if he has any explanation. He at least owes that much to his fans. What prohibited substance did Byron Pope test positive for?

  3. David P says:

    Dexamethasone is not a performance-enhancing drug but a type of steroid medication with anti-inflammatory effects that is usually used to aid an athlete’s rehabilitation.
