She's a sinking ship, and everyone associated with her is scrambling not to go down with it...

Sad to say, but Marion is going down ... Way too much smoke around her ... She's been scrambling for over a year now ... Her performances last year were weak at best ... I think she would have done well to take her child and stay home ... Everything since then has been total negativity and has damaged any remnants of what might have been remembered as a sterling career ... Now her memory will be forever tarnished !!!

That was basically my sentiment during her comeback, but I'm not so sure the doping hounds would've let her alone even in retirement. They seem obsessed with going after anything and everything rumored to have happend in the last 4 years.

___I think that there should be a statute of limitations when it comes to drug cheats. I would go for a 10 year--time limit.

I think drugs are way overrated...I've taken anabolic steroids and HGH and if you think that's going to make you a champion you're sadly mistaken.Oh, they help to some degree but they're WAY overrated ..I know from experience, how many people on this site can say the same thing?I knew Ben Johnson was on Winstrol V injections, I could tell by the way he looked.He looked just like me before a bodybuilding contest.But that alone didn't make him a 9.79 sprinter.Believe what you want,I know from experience!!!!!!!!

I agree, but to be fair, they do have a big effect or they wouldn't be so widely used. Overrated or not, they aren't a non-issue.

I agree that drugs are not the end all be all that some people believe ... Proper technique, proper development of strength and so many other things also come into play .... However ... Having said that No matter how good you are without them, drugs will make you better ... So if you are a 10.50 sprinter there is nothing out there that is going to take you to 9.80 ... BUT if you are a 10.00 sprinter you are close enough that PEDs could be what you need to take you over the edge ... Drugs are not the answer, but they are part of a solution to a particular destination if you have the right ingredients ...

I like that analogy.
