Actually, when ever I hear of a cheat being caught, I think of it as a great day for sport. The best thing for atheltics and US sports in the past decade was the Balco scandal, as it shows that more and more cheats are being caught out.Trojanhorse said:
Sorry Trojan, can't agree here, its not a sad day, if he cheated he cheated. Just because he was representing Ireland, we can't exonerate him from the fact that he cheated. Can you imagine the furore that wiould go on in Ireland if it happened that he came second, (or fourth) and one of the other medal winners had cheated.Trojanhorse said:
Not really, the drugs have to be one step ahead of the authorities. How else could they know if they exist or not? And Balco was sheer fluke, an annonymous tip-off, gave that game away. More cheats are being caught but thats cos more people cheat, I reckon.jjcarroll said:Actually, when ever I hear of a cheat being caught, I think of it as a great day for sport.

Are you Tony O'Reilly?sideorder said:It is a sad day for the horde industry in Ireland but if ye had all listened closely to the report they said he was found guilty but they belive that the doping was not intentional. Also there is a strong rumour going around that it was deliberately done by another competitor in order for Cian to be brought down.
Closer to what? The horse's mouth? If so, please assume the stance once more and ask him/her ie the horse with horse sense, on who's behalf was the horse doped?sideorder said:no just someone who listens a liitle bit closer than the rest of ye and doesnt point the finger too quickly
