Let's see if I've got this right...

Shawn Crawford is a "drug cheat" because he didn't fill out his paperwork right when he retired so he received a drug ban for missing 3 tests.

Mike Rodgers is a "drug cheat" for a stimulant in Jack3D.

Because they're Americans.

But Alozia and Ross simply made a "breach" for not reporting whereabouts and missing tests.

And Matt Davies simply "breached" a rule for a stimulant in a supplement product.

Because they're Aussies and Aussies aren't drug cheats.

Have I got that right?

(willingly or unwillingly) Taking banned stimulants means: drug cheat, drug suspension a/o drug related disciplinary warning.
Mistakes on your wherebouts form: disciplinary sanction a/o warning.

Simple as that.
