This may all be true, but I can't believe it would lead to guys not playing their hardest or doing whatever they could to win. Just doesn't jive with the high-level competitor these guys are. They're the ones out on the field being watched. They want to do as well as they can for or despite CGC.Fwiw, a lot of tail end CPJ guys/first year or two CGC (year or two older than Juanyeh Thomas) wouldn't piss on CGC if he was on fire.
The skinny on the whole "nobody can bench 225 20x" was apparently a farce. The day they "tested" was immediately after a max out day and nobody wanted to push it hard and blow a pec.
Also the OL weight stuff is just not true
