Subject: RE: PEDdy Hellebuyk's Masters career wiped off the books
I love how there is this school of thought that people somehow deserve a medal for being honest after lying for such a long time. "oh, he finally manned up, and told the truth. Good for him, I like him now."
People like Eddy H lied, cheated, STOLE MONEY! Not to mention illegally obtaining the drugs in the first place. If it were any other business you'd not only be fired, but arrested and sued for grand theft, and fraud, among other things.
When an athlete cheats in track, they are by that very action stealing money in that their performances are fraudulent and keeps other athletes from earning their fair share.
There is NO room for sympathy for these athletes, from Eddy H to Marion Jones, and all in between. Tolerance is why it continues. They chose to cheat their profession, and everyone a part of it. All of their records, results, medals should be wiped out when they are found guilty.
If you were in the race, and did everything right, followed the rules, and in the biggest race of your life you got 2nd. And 3 years later you find out the person who beat you was a cheat, and a liar, and cheated you out of what was rightfully yours. I'm sure your sympathy would quickly melt away.
Oh no, but they seem like such good people! Well gosh, we can't punish them since they seem like good people. And everyone who commits murder is evil. Some good people do bad things, and some bad people do good things. But doping requires a SYSTEMATIC MANIPULATION of the truth. They first decide to take the drug, then compete with it, then take all the praise for a good performance, and the money, records, awards, attention that comes with it. And even when they get caught eventually, hand in the cookie jar, they continue their deceit until maybe one day they confess. And then we award them the sympathy vote. NOPE! Their doping required years of calculated manipulation, which is in no way a single act of good/bad. So NO! people like EDDY H are NOT good people. Sorry, but their good deeds only cloud the fact that they saw it as ok to lie and deceive everyone for years and reap rewards from it. Sound like the act of a good person?
