Alberto Salazar life time ban

    Good riddance.

    Now, if they could do the same to all the other dopers ...

    Absolute piece of work. I’d say we’ll never know the half of his sins.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,154 ✭✭✭KaneToad

    It would be great if he started naming names.

  • Registered Users Posts: 933 ✭✭✭jamule

    it would be interesting if he started , what has he got to lose now by telling the truth or even throwing out a few names for the craic.

    I'm sure his former employers will have paid handsomely to ensure his silence 😇

    Unfortunately lifetime bans won't hold up for doping from WADA as we have seen time and time again. USADA ban is only a 4 year. The lifetime is in relation to misconduct and handed down from SafeSport so very much a Michelle De Bruin scenario

    Sure, I'm aware of that.

    Doping was actually his lesser sin, IMHO. The way he mercilessly bullied his athletes, especially female ones, was just unbelievable and cruel. The stories from Kara Goucher and particularly Mary Cain are mindboggling. How someone was allowed to conduct himself in such a manner is outrageous and Nike has a lot to answer for.

    Athletics is just one big drug game. I have no interest in it anymore because of the doping and Ireland is also riddled with it. When I see our past hero’s commentating who were drugged to the nines I just turn off the telly.

    "Ireland is riddled with it" really?

    Do you really think that Irish athletics is riddled with drugs.

    Or are you talking about and including other sports as well.

    I don't see any evidence of athletics in Ireland being riddled. Of course there were isolated cases, and I'd hazard a guess the very odd one that wasn't caught, but that's a far cry from being riddled
