        I actually think they should have their own leagues or “heats” in cases where there’s not enough to cover two tiers of pros. Jack Lalanne used what we’d now call performance enhancers to boost his HGH & attributed his long & healthy life to them. I see very little actually wrong with blood packing in an endurance sport, until you lie about it. There’s my issue, I don’t consider A-Rod a wimp, he’s just a cheater & in reality you look at the top tier of batters & they all juiced, so he was just being competitive. Sadly the reason Lemond quit riding was in large part because his last tour he was the only one on the podium who wasn’t doping & by the time Lance was riding, just about everyone who finished the race was on something. Pushing the envelope is the point, but unfair is unfair & there should always be a place for “natural” athletes.

        I don’t care that Lance doped, I care that he ruined the people who wouldn’t lie for him.

          true but if you have to use something that makes you something you’re not….. then what are you really?? You failed your own tests… your own challenges and basically… you just want to “win” over accomplishments gained by hard work sweat and training. I work out with Marines, and the Airborne… it is about overcoming obstacles, it’s about pushing your limits, it’s about gain with pain but honest hard work which puts you over the top, not some injection that makes you into a superman….

            There are physical limits to what you can do natural, we use enhancements of every other sort… why wouldn’t we seek to make our bodies more, reduce recovery times & get more effort out of less weight. I know for a fact we give Spec Ops & pilots performance enhancers for use in the field, not “steroids” but stuff that’s illegal in pro cycling.

    Here’s one that Ziyi may recognize “The petty man is eager to make boasts, yet desires that others should believe in him. He enthusiastically engages in deception, yet wants others to have affection for him. He conducts himself like an animal, yet wants others to think well of him.” ~ Xun Kuang

          Courage is not the absence of fear but acting despite fear

    Those who dope are losers. Those who lose to dopers are winners, and not by default.
