    a very straightforward, honest, and true observation. no matter what else happens from here on out, we're in a very sad state that we may never live to see the end of.

      I found that he implied that track and field was 1) dirtier than any other sport and 2) doing nothing about it. In fact, we're in this situation because the sport is MORE vigilant than the other, but the media interprets more penalties are being equivalent to more problems.

        "Maybe we shouldn't be surprised if this year's Trials aren't the feel-good festival they were in 2000."

        But wasn't it feel-good because we were just too naive to know it too was dirty?

        to quote two cliches: the more things change, the more they remain the same - this too shall pass

        The good news is that now our skepticism is on the alert all the time. The bad news is that no GREAT performance will be universally credible.

          "And maybe we should stop wondering why track and field - once the purest sport known to man - has fallen so far in the American experience."

          The purest sport known to man? When track was completely pure, ALL sports were completely pure. When it ceased to be "completely" pure, no other comparable sport was either.

            The Tour de France is starting soon and Lance's ex-phsyio has written a book accusing him of doping. Interesting to see if it deflects interest from T&F or just adds to the coverage. Co-written by a Brit journalist, David Walsh, who I have always liked. He's been pointing out for years Lance's relationship with the cycling equivalent of Charlie Francis.
