    He may be innocent of any wrongdoing, but note from story on front page that Monty's name just came up in another criminal investigation.

    That's for the NCAA to think about, which I think they should do. One suggestion would be to suspend them for a year from supplying any team uniforms to colleges.
    In the case of NIKE or Adidas, that might mean something, but that would be meaningless to companies like Asics, Puma and Mizuno. It would be like a father punishing his ten-year-old son by taking away his driving privileges.

    Gee, Asics certainly knew that he was still an collegiate student-athlete. I'd like to see Asics sanctioned, even though this apparently happened back in the mid-1990s.

    Or is signing collegiate athletes to under-the-table shoe contracts commonplace? Was it so in the 1990s?

    I hope Jon Drummond, Mo Green and the rest of the '00 4x100 relay are not delusional to think they should keep their gold medal after this revelation. This ridiculous semantic distinction between running in the heats versus running in the final just does not cut it anymore. And I don't want to hear about some legal statute of limitation either. Once an achievement is tainted, it is tainted! It is most unfortunate when five runners have to suffer because of the sins of one, but that is track and field......and life.

    As I said before, I hope a lot of young people (not just athletes) watched this program and learned something from this "little man's" fall from grace.

    The difference between a real journalist and one who plays one on TV could be seen in two high-profile track interviews: Oprah with Marion and Gumbel with Montgomery.

    Jones blabbers on Oprah about being misled to believe she was given "flaxseed oil" by Conte and this ridiculous notion goes unchallenged by the Queen of Daytime talk. Surely someone like Jones, a college educated woman and track veteran, wouldn't take just anything, would she? But we get no follow-up question, no investigation, no nothing from the Queen.

    Meanwhile, Gumbel becomes indignant when Montgomery claims not to know about what he was given by Conte. Gumbel removes his glasses and basically says c'mon, Tim. Then Tim admits, yeah, I knew it was steroids.

    Marion had her choice of shows to appear on -- 60 Minutes, Real Sports, etc. -- and it looks like she chose wisely. She's a chronic liar who needs to confess for the first time in her life about the depth and detail of her drug usage, if only to teach her kids the value of telling the truth.

    I thought it was interesting that he decided to take the high road when Marion Jones' name came up, but at least he's not as detached from reality as she is.

    "Prior to the 2000 Olympic Games in Australia, I broke the rules," Montgomery told Gumbel. "I used testosterone, and then I used 'GH (human growth hormone) four times a month. I have a gold medal that I'm sitting on that I didn't get with my own ability."

    I now rank Gumble right down there with Costas. I think he is one of the latest track attackers more interested and blinded by the negatives associated with the sport than the positives to lead to its development. Why on earth would he seek to interview a Tim montgomery after an olympic year filled so much other drama and positive achievements?
    I take it you missed his interview with Bolt last month.
    Isn't this one the first of the new season?
    Gumbel doesn't single out track & field when it comes to exposing skeletons in the closet. If you watch the show regularly, then you already know that he's an equal opportunity muckraker.[/quote:3w1e8uqa]

    preaching to the choir man, I am a bona fide fan watching this show regularly. But we all kno that what is hot is what will sell. Just thought the new season started with the Montgomery episode, never knew he did an olympic special.
