    Re: Cheating and Money

    Unfortunately, this proposition is sort of a double-edged sword.

    Yes, if there was less money, there would be less incentive to cheat, and hence probably less cheating.

    BUT...

    If there was less money, people would quit track after college and/or after one Olympics to work in other jobs; you wouldn't get long professional careers like Michael Johnson, El G, Geb, etc.

    Not quite. It's actually LOVE of money that is at the root of all evil. This is perhaps one of the most misquoted sayings in human history...

    Cheating and Money

    Questions: would there be less cheating if track and field did not provide as many lucrative opportunities for prize money and endorsements? Would there be less cheating if the clock was turned back 30 years or so? Is there more incentive to cheat today?
