    I'd rather there be doubt but some legitimate performances than certainty and entirely fictitious results.

    And this is the problem. Whenever anybody does something special there will the doubters and skeptics who believe drugs are involved (whether they are or aren't). This will be the case for all athletes in all sports for the rest of our lives. Unless of course PEDs are allowed........... but that opens up another can of worms.

    Yes, and when you create a reputation, you get treated differently, that's life in general, your credibility comes into question.
    Do you realize that this is what is now happening to Jamaica? Slowly, surely, a reputation is being created.

    Sherri Ann Brooks, Yohan Blake, Marvin Anderson, Lanceford Spence and Allodin Fothergill in 2009. Julien Dunkley in 2008. Steve Mullings in 2004. Patrick Jarrett in 2001. Merlene Ottey in 1999. Donovan Powel in 1995.

    The list is growing, the reputation will follow suit.

    If Blake is eligible put him on the relay, no excuses about any team not fielding their strongest relay, cuz we know some will bring that up :shock:

    This is general, by the way.

    Blake isn't important to the relay? The man has run 9.93 this season and has displayed phenominal top-end speed and with his relay experience he would be an asset. If Blake is cleared that Jamaican relay will once again be the clear favoritie. Without him, the Americans could be considered co-favorites.
    blake's relay experience? do you realize that he almost got the racer's club team disqualified two weeks ago in london for leaving early.. he's a fine young talent, but he's not mature enough to be on that relay.. they should bench him for the pos test and let him learn a lesson...

    we had the jack black argument on other thread it applies here too..
    Benching him for the doping issue is one thing. That makes sense (although if he is cleared to participate then some would argue there isn't a reason to bench him. But, you said that he wasn't important to the relay team. You are VERY wrong.

    So true! That is exactly why I find myself skipping over most
    posts by some people on these boards: They have built a
    reputation as irrational, destructive, annoying, low in content,
    or otherwise better not read---with their net-contribution
    being decidedly negative.

    Still no smoking in my opinion, but that doesn't mean you all should give up hope.

    Yeah, no drug culture in Jamaica mon.

    I don't like cricket. Oh no! I love it!

    How does it feel to be in cloud nine? I'd imagine it gets lonely.

    Thanks.

    In all seriousness, if this had happened to five USA athletes, there would have been a lynch mob ready to hang them all, with a lot of people making none too subtle statements about how deep it all goes, how long it has been going on etc.

    also i would have thought the IAAF would be appealing any aquittal for procedural reasons

    Tell it to the three amigo's who are trying to make this seem as big a deal as it was across the pond, they know who I'm talking about.



    One love!
