You f***wits this proves that they are testing their athletes. They also caught Dunkley last year before Beijing so where's the coverup?
You are being manipulated if you think this proves anything. Just like in the NFL, claiming a super-awesome testing regimen, then catching a few people low(er) on the totem pole to save face, is the oldest game in the book. That way they can say "see??? we told you we tested everyone thoroughly!" without actually losing big name athletes.
shawn merriman isnt a top tier name?
They bopped merriman because he has a big mouth. During his suspension an interviewer told him something to the effect of "stay off the juice, you're already nasty, you're gonna hurt someone." meirriman laughed and said "I gotta do what I gotta do."
So, incredible talent + big mouth = caught cheating and or blackballed
Mediocre talent = made an example off at no major loss to the organization
Incredible talent + ability to keep quiet = the good life
