I see you have taken time to look at wikipedia article.
I don't need Wikipedia to know that ephedra isn't a steroid.

1) Androstenedione is not an anabolic steroid.
It's an androgenic steroid. All androgenic steroids have some anabolic effect. In fact, it isn't uncommon for physiologists and endocrinologists to refer to "Anabolic/Androgenic Steroids", or "AAS".

2) Androstenedione wasn't included in the list of prohibited drugs until several years later after Jones-hall fight.
Yes it was. At least, according to Marian Muhammad of the IBF, author of the document in question:

"Because [Roy Jones Jr.] positive for substance(s) that are supposed to be banned by our organization. Roy took our title into the ring; it doesn't matter who the lead organization was."

Now you can try to weasel your way out of these sad facts by pointing out that the WBA was the "lead" sanctioning body for the fight, and the WBA had not banned androstenedione, but that's just lawyering your way around the facts. Androstenedione was banned by the IBF, Jones was tested by the IBF, and he failed.

3) The claim that Ripped Fuel contains androstenedione is completely false. It never contained it.
So Jones is a shameless liar running away from the consequences of his cheating. I'm not surprised. Still, it doesn't change the fact that Roy Jones Juicer blamed his positive steroid test on having used "Ripped Fuel".

And, of course, TwinLabs "Nor Andro Ripped Fuel" DOES contain 50mg of androstenedione per capsule.

No more excuses - 'tis Roy Jones who juices!
