    I think they also need an interpretation / competence unit

    I think that their attorneys read the rules and gave them a little competence. They would not have had the misconceptions about what they thought the rules would be to mislead them. Clearly, repeatedly implying that this is a doping violation is willfully attacking a top athlete that has not committed a doping violation and for whom there is no evidence of any doping. You seem to want us to be calling him a doper because you think that the April 'miss' should count even though he was at a meet where he is likely to get tested (and multiple elements also work against that as a violation). Just stop.

    Sucks for Coleman. They read the rule wrong and he cant compete in the diamond league final. Loses out on $50k

    As 26 noted earlier, that $50k might be small change relative to the long term loss from his reputation being tainted.

    Go stop yourself.

    I have never said that Coleman was a doper. What I have said is that he missed 3 tests in a 12 month period.

    And while that doesn't make him a doper, it sure as hell in my books makes him a dope.

    During the Brussels DL press conference, Reese, Lyles and Thiam all spoke openly about how they have missed tests before (Norman noted he has had close calls) and about the "annoying" process of testing in general.
