Jones 'Devastated' by Doping Allegations

Eldrick, could you be just a little overstating the case about T&F posters? :-)

The same fans that are bothered by the most high profile woman's athlete today being a drug cheat, are prolly the same fans upset at the dug cheat Barry Bonds getting records. Simply a matter of integrity. Oh well.

I know this is a grotesque fillet of the quote, but:

Jones: Um...I have always said - and I will continue to say - that I believe in a drug-free sport,
(meaning: yeah I don't want my competitors taking drugs that might bring their times down)
I have never ever taken a performance-enhancing drug,
(none of the drugs I have taken has ever been proven to be PEDs)
and I:m just quite pleased...happy...ecstatic - any adjective to describe how I feel right now in terms of the fact that um, this "B"-sample proved that um that I have never taken a drug,
(she should have said 'proved I did not have EPO in my urine' it doesn't the slight bit prove she has never taken a drug)
and that I haven:t taken a drug. And I hope really, Robin, that this whole situation with me is used as a catalyst - a catalyst for more research in testing, a catalyst for better confidentiality samples and just to protect the athletes.
(this is true the testing needs more confidentiality; and by the way MJ, the A/B protocol did protect the athlete)[/quote]

Police and detective work, not drug testing, is the real answer to catching the cheats.

Jones attorney apparently behind the Great Escape from Zürich.

It was one of those phone calls that came during a time of day that prompted Rich Nichols’ instincts to tell him it wasn’t going to be good news, and it wasn’t. On the other end of the line that day roughly three weeks ago was a client from Zurich. She was in tears.

It was track star Marion Jones. She’d just been informed she’d tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug.

Nichols, her lawyer, calmed her down as best he could and told her to come home immediately.

Would just like to say I haven't a clue what to think, except it's all sad and messy.

Profound, huh?!
