    Must admit I expected this to be about nonce sports coaches when I saw the title.

    Chap raises a good point tho; the recovery time for Warne before the 03 world cup from his shoulder injury was pretty eyebrow raising for a bloke who was already in his mid-30s.

    Him getting pinged for a known steroid masking agent just before the tournie started corroborated those suspicions.

    I remain of the opinion the one year ban, reduced from the mandated two on a reason that sounded pretty adjacent to utter BS, was a disgrace.

    I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
    I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.
    I am most importantly never concerned with what I am not.

    Some drugs being used not yet approved for human use. Findings show entire teams have been doped by sports scientists. Wow.
