Anti-Doping News

On Wednesday, two pharmacies were raided and eight people were arrested in connection to an internet-based PED distribution operation. Athletes apparently involved include Gary Matthews, Evander Holyfield, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and Jason "Typhoid Mary" Grimsley. In an amazing turn of events, not a single track person has been named in connection to this bust.

Or maybe not so amazing. The nature of the system above appears to leave fairly obvious paper trails, and no one in a sport subject to WADA oversight would take such risks. High-profile sports such as baseball and football, however, have yet to truly deal with reality, and their athletes are apparently just that stupid.

I never really looked at it like that! So true though.
