    I don't think EVERYONE is on roids. No doubts the guys that make up these roids are one step ahead of the guys trying to detect them but labelling all professional athletes as drug users is just wrong. Drugs are not a neccessity in professional sport. How many times did Lance Armstrong get drug tested and passed every one of them?? and not to mention Ian Thrope....the guy may fancy blokes and wear leather pants but he absolutely kicked your butts in all of his races and what did you say? oh Ian Thorpe must take steriods (wipes tears from his eyes)

    Its funny cos if this chick was not American you guys would not give a sh1t and call her a cheat. She is a disgrace to the sport and your country. She should be shamed for what she has done. But who should get hte medals? the silver metalist got done in the last Olymics and i'm sure 3rd had been caught out before. Are you saying the men are smarter then the women?

    ok now here we go........

    Just because you pass a drug test doesn't mean you're not on them! E.G. hGH is completely undetectable to date! In addition, many hormones can be used to advance training and the drugs can be halted in time to have any trace of the drugs out of site by the time drug testing is present.

    and not to mention Ian Thrope....the guy may fancy blokes and wear leather pants but he absolutely kicked your butts in all of his races and what did you say? oh Ian Thorpe must take steriods (wipes tears from his eyes)
    Exactly what the french said about Lance Armstrong. I don't give a rats ass about any of these sports, I just know that almost all athletic professional athletes do drugs of some sort. I'll admit that golfers (although I'd bet many of them are taking things like amphetamins like Adderall to improve focus), most baseball players, etc really have little need for most drugs, so there are plenty of exceptions in there. But, with regards to people who need to be stronger, run faster, jump higher, etc, there is a ridiculously high probability that they're all taking some sort of performance enhancing drug and its completely justified in their minds (and mine) because they know that the person next to them is doing it,too. Did you see that picture I posted?

    Its funny cos if this chick was not American you guys would not give a sh1t and call her a cheat. She is a disgrace to the sport and your country. She should be shamed for what she has done.

    I couldn't care less about this dumbass or where she's from. Look at her competition, its obvious from their ridiculously muscular builds (even in comparison with her; again, see the picture she's smaller than at least 2 of the people she's running with!). There is no way she was the only one on performance enhancing drugs.

    Jesus man, I'd swear to god you must be a journalist

    Hell, with the BILLIONS of dollars that into the olympics and professional sports you'd think people would realize how very affordable it is to test every single person in the game, however, this doesn't happen! Why? If it's not obvious to you already its because everyone knows its happening so owners, officials, etc. will just stick their heads in the sand until someone makes them be accountable for accusations flying around.

    hmm that was quite a rant from me earlier wasn't it.............beleive me after reading what was said in the Aussie papers i've gone easy on her. At the end of hte day its a damn shame cos she was gunna go down as one of the best female athletes of all time. Now her whole career has gone down the tubes.

    isn't the whole point of random drug testing meant to catch out the people using the drugs that are in and out of the system quickly?

    That picture that was posted of marion, and the girls on either side, does work towards reducing marions look of being on the juice. Her slanted pose, coupled with her half leggings covering her muscles helps.

    I've seen a number of women sprinters over the time and marion has to be up there being the most muscular and most male like, even when you compare to other female sprinters of the time.

    The first two pictures on this page are very close to male like physique and fat distribution, and miraculously her booty has disappeared too.

    Her carrer was over anyways.
    No big deal.
    Now she can write a tell all book, and make more money.

    Not only that read the entire story, she is working with the feds against her ex-husband tim montgomery so she can get less of a sentence for tax evasion.

    Vicor Conte already did his time, so all she has to do is say, i got it from him, and end of story.

    you're talking about 2 sports which need a ball to be hit as far as possible

    esp baseball, hit ball, run fast, pitch hard, throw long etc, how many times a week do the baseball pro's play?

    baseball = barry bonds = balco

    as for golf, tiger woods has been calling for drug testing for the PGA for a while now and it's pretty common knowledge within golfing circles that some pro golfers have used and still use beta blockers to slow the heart rate down to keep cool under pressure which in turn improves focus and control

Look at the chick on the far right, she's got bigger legs than 3/4 the guys on this board!


    i think any guy that finds these chicks attractive are really "on the down low" lmao..might as well make the commitment and completely go over the fence fellas because your 3/4 of the way there

    Ya, I may as well just switch to guys because I like girls with some muscle. That makes sense.

    Once again, to clear things up...This is what I consider perfect:

    Yeh that pic of that pole vaulter is wonderful. Unfortunately, if you go looking for other pics of her, you will find that none compare to that pic. It's just a crazy hot pose, and she looked hot that day. The thighs, the shoulders.

    Understood, but sluggers are few and far between. I personally believe that plenty of pro baseball players take stuff, but I don't think its like football and a few other sports where its very prevalent.

    as for golf, tiger woods has been calling for drug testing for the PGA for a while now and it's pretty common knowledge within golfing circles that some pro golfers have used and still use beta blockers to slow the heart rate down to keep cool under pressure which in turn improves focus and control
    Figured they'd use something for focus. If they get too big they'd be risking their fine motor movements necessary for a good put, so I'm sure they focus on "focus"

    Random drug testing is a farse; its ridiculous. It's a front IMHO. Its so organizations have the appearance of caring about drug use/abuse in competition when they really don't give a damn. If they did they could easily tighten the leash on many athletes; there is more than enough money to ensure that.

    Word.

    Nobody puts a gun to athletes' heads and tells them to go pro. It is their choice. Consequently each and every one of them should get regular tests done; including blood tests. Put the onus on them to maintain a normal hormone profile.

    I'm all for legalizing everything under the sun for personal use but I don't think that competitive sport should come down to who can cram as many pharmaceuticals into their system and be able to sneak in under the radar.

    ...and that vaulter could vault my pole any day.

    Marion Jones sentenced to six months in prison


    WHITE PLAINS, New York (Reuters) - Disgraced Olympic sprinter Marion Jones was sentenced to six months in prison on Friday for lying to federal prosecutors about her steroid use.

    District Court Judge Kenneth Karas imposed the sentence after Jones pleaded guilty to two charges last October, part of a stunning demise of the five-time medalist from the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

    Jones, who once pulled in millions of dollars in product endorsements, is now in financial ruin

    Honestly that is rediculous....6 month for roids??

    Micheal Vick run a dog fighting ring and gets what...24 months??....

    I think they are making an example of her and its too harsh. So many athletes have done it, take her medals (they did) and her sponsors (they did) but jail time is not fair IMO. She has kids, just not right.

    I think a lot of it had to do with her being an 'accomplice' to her ex-husbands multi-MILLION dollar check fraud scheme.

    As in, she knew he was doing it, enjoying some of the benefits, and didn't rat him out.

    Funny thing is I heard that Vick will most likely now do 12months, LOL. The world is a backwards place my friend.
