    I'm probably wrong on this, but can you actualy be charged for having a drug in your blood stream ? It's not something I've ever needed to know :p: But I would of thought they'd need catch you in posession of the drug rather than just having it in your system to charge you ? Unless of course you commited another offence like driving under the influence.
    The fact it is in his system proves that he must have got it into his system somehow and that's by taking it which is ILLEGAL. Since ordinary members of the public aren't normally drug tested, this kind of thing isn't common but if a police officer were to drug test you now and you were found to have cocaine in your body, you'd be arrested and charged most likely...

    They've both committed crimes that me or you could have done in the streets and get done for but do they because it's on the football pitch? Unlikely.

    1. What did Robin van Persie actually do? He's been accused of rape and he's in jail at the moment.
    2. Mutu's drugtaking wasn't on the football pitch because I don't recall him doing a Robbie Fowler :rolleyes: but was after a training session and so, immediately after the police should have been called by the FA or Chelsea FC or the police should have arrested him once it got splashed all over the papers.

    i think it only matters if its intent to supply or caught in possession, it could have got into his blood stream through numerous other ways than through a 20 quid note

    Then it'll be up to his defence and his lawyers to prove that he didn't deliberately uptake that illegal substance but it didn't even get to the courts! How else do you get such a high proportion of cocaine into your body accidently that it shows up on a random drug test... ?

    Of the teams capable of beating Australia, England head the list ahead of maybe India and South Africa. Not saying they WILL beat them but England are rightly 2nd best in the world right now on merit. But Australia havent been at the top for several years by panicking after defeats in warm up games.

    He's had his foul moments which have warranted him red cards in the past for violent conduct. If you wish we can have these footballers interrogated by police. Why should the Rule of Law not apply on a sporting field?

    And I'm not going to make a prediction, I'm just going to sit back, watch and enjoy, (except for the Lords test because I'll be in Cuba)

    lol. Try putting a bit of carpet on the door. That way you won't hear him kicking and he won't injure himself. Does he have anything he can play with in his stable? Try a haynet with smaller holes so it takes longer for him to eat.
    He doesn't have anything to play with, but I'll se if I can purloin something off one of my friends...he actually doesn't have a net, our horses have haylage and it's fed off the floor. He's in quite a good stable though, it's next to the office and he's quite enjoying watching the world go by him. I'm going to take him for a walk this evening as well. Hopefully he'll behave himself...

    Because it wouldn't be in the public interest I would see. On a sporting field, it is regarded that some violence will occur due to the nature of the game. If it can be sorted out by internally without taking it through the public costs then its all good. But if somebody takes a class A drug and is called up for it, just because he works for Chelsea FC, it doesn't mean he should be immune from prosecution - in fact, he should be made an example of.

    Pat Cash has been complaining about the seeding.. Hewitt is world No 2 yet is the 3rd seed, while Roddick is world No 4 but is the 2nd seed.

    http://inhome.rediff.com/sports/2005/jun/16cash.htm

    Does this mean Hewitt will be in Federer's side of the draw? What are your opinions on this?
