    Why? Drug cheats are taking money from clean athletes. Doesn't matter who gets a pass; they're still cheating.
    When a student cheats and tries the 'but everyone else is doing it' (some are; most aren't), I just say, 'stinks to get caught, huh?'

    It would be a lot easier to ban drug cheats for life if you were certain you were capable of catching all the cheats. I believe that a large number of athletes who competed and won medals at various championships are numbered among those not caught. Testing is far too unreliable and inconsistent to have any real confidence that you are catching most of the cheats much less all of them.

    Why is it wrong impression. I think all of the reported NCAA shennigans, especially concerning basketball and football, but also TNF to a lesser extent, appear to confirm that nztrackfan is correct.
