|Subject: ||RE: PEDdy Hellebuyk's Masters career wiped off the books|
Hellebuyk is like the guy who steals a car, says how sorry he is for stealing it, but still wants to keep the car. I'm glad they rejected his statute of limitations crap.
It's not about forgiving people or being merciful - it's about justice for everyone that a drug cheat has cheated. Doping is not a victimless crime. Drug cheats are cheating every clean competitor that they beat. Marion Jones cheated every clean runner she beat plus every clean member of her US relay team who also lost her medal. Leaving records by cheaters in the record books cheats everyone who might be in the record book in place of the cheat.
People can forgive Hellebuyk or not as they wish, but he shouldn't get to keep records that he obtained by cheating.
