Subject: RE: Solomon suddenly world class and Rupp soloing 3.50 indoor miles - Come on Letsun, ask the questions!

Message:
A friend of mine after today's results was talking about doping and saying the it is more of an even playing field and the Americans now had a shot. He basically implied a lot of foreign athletes were using but they couldn't use as rampantly in the past.

I saw his point.

I then threw this at thim "If Solomon and Rupp weren't American, you'd be wondering what they were on."

And he agreed.

The point being this guy is so skeptical of athletes he is not fans of without any proof just looking at their results. But ones he is fans of he is not skeptical of.

So I had to laugh when I saw this thread.

We only tend to ask questions towards others, not our own guys.

There is nothing wrong with "asking questions" or even fans saying "so and so must be using because of X." That leads to discussion and debate which hopefully leads to a cleaner sport.

So I've restored this thread.
