Who Was the Greater Cheat...

Ben Johnson or Milli Vanilli?

It:s a tragedy for me to see the pee turned green...
And I never will forget the day I wept,
World record, I:m gonna miss you.

Milli Vanilli! They made a lot more money than Ben Johnson and (sorry to say it but) music is more popular than track'n'field.

I vote Ben Johnson as the greater cheat.. he took unfair advantage over clean athletes whose livlihood and career were on the line and could not be "lipsynched" by someone else

I could not tell "millit' from "vinilli".. I just remember hearing about the "scandal" but if their audience was mesmerized by their presence and satisfied with the sounds they were presumably making, wheres the harm?

When you hear a CD or record, you do not know who is actually making the noise.

If a track audience is mesmerized by a cheat:s presence and satisfied with the performances the cheat made, where:s the harm?

We are talking apples and oranges here.. There is real harm to his clean competitors in the cheater's track performance ... I just can't see how the listener suffers regardless of who makes the music he is hearing..

There were like POTENTIALLY 3 clean sprinters in that Seoul final lol.

I still think Johnson trumps it though.

The real scandal with Milli Vanilli was not that they had to give back their Grammy, but that they were ever given one in the first place.

'Zackly. Their music was pretty awful.
I voted for Ben Johnson. Show business is all about illusion anyway, plus there was no real harm done to anyone by MV pretending to sing, while athletes who take drugs do take money and glory away from those who don't.
