    Chelsea said they'd never have had any interactions with the doctor. He's a flakey liar apparently.
    Ye, just like JT originally said he'd never had any interactions with Wayne Bridges girlfriend...

    Shocking article. It wouldn't surprise me if most athletes at the top of their game are doping. Even if they aren't PEDs, they're all taking a ton of supplements, injections etc. to boost their performances. At what point does something go from just "performance enhancing vitamins" to PEDs? Genuine question

    Its a relative grey area, most people would agree that using anabolic steroids shouldnt be allowed in sports but when you look at examples such as golfers using laser eye surgery to improve their already healthy vision (which isn't banned btw), surely youre performance enhancing just as much as the first example?

    Its all down to the authorities at the end of the day which is why its so widely debated. Sports recently are also becoming so much more competitive and results are decided on such small scales that athletes are starting to experiment more because some see these grey areas as loopholes probably.

    To illustrate the question further, let us consider a Premiership footballer and a sprinter.
    • The footballer uses an inhaler to control his asthma.
    • The sprinter takes THG, a muscle-building 'designer' steroid.
    A lot of people would say that the footballer's inhaler is fine (if he really is asthmatic) but the sprinter is cheating. That's certainly the position of the sporting authorities.Asthma treatments definitely affect performance. In fact, they contain banned substances. They must be approved before an athlete may use them. Why are they allowed at all, if such drugs as THG are not permitted under any circumstances?There is nothing wrong with the sprinter; she could compete without her steroid (though she might not place as highly). The footballer has a medical condition that would otherwise make him unable to compete without doubling over and wheezing.But the sprinter might argue that asthma is a natural disadvantage, just like being a slightly slower runner, and that if we wanted to be consistent we should take the footballer's inhaler away too!
