    I said “could” not “would.” I do not know what Nike’s corporate retirement policy is but large publicly-traded corporations tend to be less flexible. And Masback may not need financially to continue to keep working at Nike unless he wants to do so.

    And I’d expect that TAFN has a different retirement policy given their enlightened owners. :-)

    Without Nike, would professional track and field exist?

    How can Salazar be banned but none of the NOP athletes are in trouble?

    Good question on the second point....if not in trouble at least questionable...its not like Salazar was some rogue element in the program...

    As to the first point it really is hard to see how....

    with all the real action going on, I've not been paying close attention to the ins and outs of the Salazar case, but as I've seen it in scanning, there are no accusations against current athletes (or even former ones?) in the USADA decision. Isn't it all directed against Salazar himself?

    Which begs the question of how did all those people he doped never get caught?

    not to parse things too finely, but there's nothing (right?) in the USADA investigation which proves (or even suggests) he doped any athlete under his sphere of influence is there?

    Big-ass smoking gun to be sure, but......
