    Re: why are they attempting to pay ben johnson anything?

    >How old is Ben Johnson now, anyway?

    Just turned 42 a few days ago (Dec 30).

    >And didn't he leave the sport in disgrace
    >10 years ago?

    Yes and no. Was booted out of the sport in disgrace for two years in 1988. Came back to run in the early 90s then got booted out of the sport in disgrace for life in 93. Tried to come back numerous times (all unsuccessful) until a self-ordered test registered a positive for a banned diuretic. Kind of redundant to boot him out of the sport in disgrace for life again, but given these latest panderings, maybe it should have been re-enforced.

    >It's a sad statement about our sport that he is still an issue
    >in any way, shape or form.

    No arguement there.
