  • Ban the WADA !

    Governments, the IAAF, national associations and athletes should stop abetting the WADA in its violation of basic human rights. If the drug war can't be won without abusing self-incrimination, the presumption of innocence, due process and unreasonable searches and seizures, it's a war not worth winning.

      Let's ban the police force whilst we're at it. It so unfair when they collect evidence on all those rapists and murderers.

      If you can't catch them in the act then how can you be sure they did it???

        Well they can end their lack of distinction between sports (both in length of ban - 2 years or even 4 is a much stronger ban for a footballer as it is for an athlete, added to the fact that an athlete can use a track during his/her ban, while a footballer can't train with a club - unless it's life or nothing, and more importantly the 'whereabouts' rule), and even more importantly, that between drugs - what stupid (GH - may I use some Eldrick insults here?) idiot really thinks a rugby player snorting a line of charlie really deserves the same ban as a steroid or EPO cheat in T&F? (And that a drink-driver, woman-beater etc. should get off scot-free.)

        I can't believe Seb Coe thinks there should be no distinction in the latter case, I believe he's a well-educated man.

        Let the leagues or teams ban cocaine offenders in team sports just as the NFL and other US leagues ban them along with other offenders who 'bring the sport into disrepute' rather than cheat at it.

          Increase WADA's powers.
          Increase WADA's funding.
          Increase research into drug-testing for new-wave PEDs.
          Ensure any athlete in an Olympic sport is banned for the next Games following their ban.

          But remove non-performance enhancing drugs from the list (particularly marijuana).

              Agreed. It doesn't belong on the list, and removing it would increase WADA's credibility, and enable it to focus more on those PEDs it should focus on.
