Well at least you can argue that the article is showing how our sport is trying to clean up it's image. It will be a cold day in hell when you see a pic and read an article like that about the NFL or MLB, two sports that definitely have a doping problem.

+1 What he said.
As much as I've enjoyed baseball, I'm getting so sick of the prima donna attitude a lot of the players have and then what you said about how if they did to the NFL/MLB what they are doing in cycling? forget it...

I was really turned off by baseball about a year ago during the all star game...ok, so they are introducing all the players on both sides and only one dude said hello to his mom. What's up with that?

yep.

Even by WADA numbers, a higher percentage of golfers score positive than cyclists, but no one goes after fat rich white guys-poor politics.

why would people dope in golf? I'm not questioning you or the studies, but it's like how hard is it to hit a ball without taking drugs?

Have you played golf?

Drugs make the pain and sadness go away.
