    The point is that all the screaming and yelling about the drug problem in baseball, the NFL tests and doesn't catch anyone or next to no one. Is the testing for show?

    Still maintaining that Marion's best strategy this year is cut the 200, focus on LJ and 100. Even with reduced speed she could be formidable in LJ. Her 6.75 indoors would seem to indicate something is going right with her technique since she was probably about a half second slower (over 100) than in Sydney, where she managed only 6.92.

    I'm not sure just what it is that you are trying to say but isn't another way to look at is that drug use is/was so widespread in MBL that why would you go some back alley Balco route-just get it off the trainer.

    One interesting aspect of this is the fact that T&F and the NFL had the majority of the names on the list yet MLB is criticized for having a weak testing system.

    Testing works right?

    The suits who run the sport must be heaving a sigh of relief at the timing on this one: the gods really smiled on the sport, what with both NBA (including Knicks-Nets) and NHL playoffs in full gear, Yankees-Red Sox consuming the northeast media moguls, Dodgers-Giants big on the left coast and the couch potato crowd glued to their sets for two days of NFL draft. Imagine the play this would have gotten on a slow weekend.

    OK, I'm worried now. Jones keeps denying much contact with Conte and BALCO but I saw a link to an ad of theirs last week with her photo plus a vitamin/mineral regime he had her on; it was extremely detailed (sorry, don't have time to find the link right now). Heard a radio sports guy about an hour ago say that the usual "trusted sources" are reporting that the whole THG situation will explode in the next 2-3 weeks, he was however, talking about Bonds.

    This thing IS beginning to look a bit more ominous than it did a week ago...

    For the first time, after reading the THG stories, I am worried about Marion.

    Either C. J. Hunter acted alone and it is guilt by association, or Marion is the culprit.

    I must admit that her Charlie Francis move now really looks more sinister than naive.

    If she falls, a lot of people will be disillusioned.

    Maybe Marion juiced up from '97 to 2000. That means she stacks up pretty impressively against the others on the all time 100 list, faster by far than any East Germans, slower only than Flojo, and IMHO leaving Evelyn Ashford as the fastest clean athlete ever. This also offers a far more credible explanation for why she is so far off "form", as opposed to silly arguments like "maternity leave", from which she has had more than ample time to recover.

    If true, this is a story:

    "A nutritionist charged with distributing illegal drugs to
    pro athletes told federal agents he gave steroids to
    track stars Marion Jones and Tim Montgomery in
    exchange for endorsements, a newspaper reported
    Saturday night."

    No MJD, you are not alone. I, for one think that the BALCO money went for C.J.'s "mineral supplements".

    CNN is reporting the story now. Actually, they are reporting that the NYT is reporting the story. It would appear that I must be a monirity of one that thinks that there is no there there(at least yet).

    You missed one point from the NY Times article that further connects the check to Jones even if she didn't sign it:

    "A person familiar with the bank records in the case, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the $7,350 payment was made for services provided exclusively to Jones and that "the largest portion, if not all of it, was for consultation." The person did not provide more specifics."
