  1. Re: Doping

    First: love the podcast (really the only reason I enjoy driving in my car when I can’t be out biking… at least I can listen to your podcast).

    Second: You asked for thoughts on the whole doping situation. I think doping… and the penalties that befall those who dope… should all be handled by the individual sport groups, the organizations governing each individual sport. It just doesn’t seem right to use hundred of thousands of tax payer dollars (especially in these times) just so high priced lawyers can investigate doping in various sports. Shouldn’t the NBA be responsible for outing basketball dopers, the NFL/AFL be responsible for football dopers. Let whoever watches over baseball, and soccer, and golf, and cycling, and whatever sport athletes might be inclined to dope in… let these organizations police their own sports. If a company/sponsor or whoever wants to file a lawsuit… fine, go for it. But, really, I can only imagine how much of our tax money is squandered investigating sports’ doping problems. In fact, it’d be great if some journalist would investigate those federal agencies that are doing the doping investigation to see just how much money is being spent. Total dollars for all sports… I’d love to hear that number and I’m sure a lot of other tax payers would too. I mean can’t the FDA and whoever else is investigating doping in sports find something better to spend our tax dollars on. End of rant… for now.
