Very difficult question.

I've a feeling that in the sports were it matters, that there is a fair bit of "everyone is doing it and I/we cannot compete without drugs".

Could it be the coach pushing a good (but not outstanding) "athlete" to use drugs to "make the next step" ? Or is it the guys down the gym ?

Tony, this is an excellent question, I wonder if we could actually find out the answer from some research somewhere ?

Another high profile sports person. This time in womens tennis. she is alleged to heve tested positive to Cocaine.

When are we going to stop discrimanating against sports persons.

If she was rock star we would't bat an eye lid.

A politician, we would be up in arms.

A model, we wouldn't care.

A school teacher, burn them at the stake.

A truckie, every one knows they need it.

Law enforcment officers, surley not.

Forget the fact that drunken spectators create havoc on a regular basis.
