    So doping has been a problem for years be it Steroids, blood doping and so on. Its just become a bit moreprominent thanks to Moscows rather unsubtle approach to it :rolleyes:
    But yar what do people think the punishment for individuals found guilty of it should be? At present I believe its a four year ban for a person found guilty of a first offence and a life time ban if it happens again but flexible for an athlete if they did so in a truly honest mistake [in fairness the banned substance list is vast..]

    Yar what do people think then, fine at present or would you like them tweaked ?

    I think the 4 year ban is okay, because they will also have the guilt that comes with it and ruined reputation

    Most of the people caught are the unfortunate ones in my opinion

    Its like the Volkswagen emissions scandal - they were unlucky enough to be caught, but all the manufacturers were doing it (as was revealed in some corrected tests carried out after the scandal, where ironically Volkswagen-owned cars outperformed the others)
