    gh really wants doping talk to be buried when he can help it doesn't he?

    it took approximately 3 hours for the original Montsho thread to turn from a topical one regarding her suspension to the 3000th rehash of testing protocols and the predictable injection of old positive stories with no current news value.

    As soon as that happens, I promise you, similar threads will disappear from this forum and end up in the Not Track section.

    It is my impression/understanding that the 'positive' is about as minor as can be. Assuming that is correct, it is not a major doping story.

    The BBC story doesn't say what it is, though....

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/commonw...games/28776120

    "The Botswana runner's samples showed traces of the banned stimulant methylhexaneamine after she surrendered her Commonwealth title last month by coming fourth in the women's 400-metre final in Glasgow, Scotland."

    I hope you're just as critical of Rhys Williams and Gareth Warburton, and don't follow Dai Greene in playing the poor victim card with those evil supplements conspiring to bring them down....

    He sounds like such a hypocrite...it was just the other day when he was criticising Lashawn Merritt.

    With regards to Montsho, it's methylhexaneamine....

    It is the same Stimulant that Yohan Blake and four others tested positive for, the difference being that it is now listed (named specifically) by WADA.

    Newspapers care not if it is minor; they try to make every doping story a major one.

    I must have missed the memo informing me that methylhexaneamine is minor....

    But your point about newspapers is a good one, toyracer. It's funny, but the English papers made such a song and dance about Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson, but you have to search the English papers to find articles on Rhys Williams and Gareth Warburton.
