    Re: IAAF Annuls Chambers Marks

    Let me also note that while IAAF annuls from date of test, T&FN wipes out the whole calendar year for steroid positives, so Chambers is removed from the No. 5 spot in last year's World Rankings and those below him move up a spot so the current standings are

    1. Capel
    2. Williams
    3. Collins
    4. Gatlin
    5. Aliu
    6. Brown
    7. Campbell
    8. Greene
    9 (and teetering?). Montgomery
    10. Emedolu

      What happens if Montgomery is proven to have received a banned substance from Conte, but doping tests reveal he was clean? How will tfn respond?

        Maybe it would depend on whether or not anyone (i.e. Tim) comes out and admits he was on it at the time.

        Which of course no one will ever hold their breath for.

          "9 (and teetering?). Montgomery"

          Didn't you just violate your own precepts, gh? You just brought his performances into question, without any substantial justification. It's all innuendo now and guilt by association, isn't it?

            Looks to me like there's so much substantial evidence out there that GH may have been kind by using such a nebulous word and adding a question mark to it.

              Just read about a prosecution memo that was released. When searching Anderson's house they found vials of steroids with the actual names of the drugs written on them (are these people idiots?) and containers of creamy substances. They've used the Baumann excuse, said they were for shampoo and lotion when travelling! Can't wait until they claim someone spiked the shampoo!

                What am I missing here? I just read the Marion thread on the "Druggie!" Board next door, and I still don't see any substantiation of drug usage. Lots of finger-pointing and name-dropping, but no direct link to MJ or TM. I'm not so naive to think it isn't POSSIBLE, but I thought the rules stipulate that we need real facts before we impugn reputations. MJ deserves that much (cf. Regina's case, which is clear now that she was dirty).

                  I thought long and hard before adding that caveat. I don't think it's unwarranted, given the information in front of us, to note that his career is hanging by a precarious thread, even if he has tested negative. The "guilt by association" thing is now perhaps enough to get him bounced. The alphabet soup boys are playing by a new set of rules these days.

                    "The alphabet soup boys are playing by a new set of rules these days."

                    I'm unclear what that means. Would IAAF/USATF hang someone with circumstantial evidence?

                    edit: did this just change boards?!

                      USATF/IAAF don't do the hanging anymore: USADA and WADA do and from what I've read they sure seem to be leaning towards circumstancial evidence convictions. And if they're not, McCain is?

                        Garry, I'm more than a little surprised at what you wrote above. Are you party to other info that has yet to be released? Seems like it's a, "he said this" - "no he didn't", situation. Conte's lawyers said the report was BS and since the interview wasn't recorded how can they prove it? Do you think there's some plea bargining going on behind the scenes where he gets a lighter sentence for grassing on the athletes? That's all I can read into it; they've had an offer that isn't acceptable and publically denied it to apply leverage to get a better deal.
