    Bugger you FD. I was doing fine, holding it all together with just the odd chuckle and snerk……Then BAM! “Performance enhancing dogs” destroyed yet another keyboard.

    I’m firmly rooting for Team Getallthedrugsintoya.

    I only watch sport because they can do awesome stuff that I couldn’t even imagine unless I was hopped up on pills. All credit to the boys.

    Gloria, would Juliar Gillard in a sack race be considered cheating?

    I can’t help but feel we owe an apology to those who have “levelled the playing field” by imbibing performance impairing drugs. Come back Ben, all is forgiven !

    Have just devised a new game (patent pending) : the object is to see which player can cheat and/or dose most. The rules aren’t important, it’s winning that matters.

    No prizes for coming second etc…the winner takes all (literally).

    No sprot without performance enhancing dogs. Or gods.

    So even the old blokes at the local bowlo are into drugs too? Who would have thought. Saturday morning roll up has taken on a whole new meaning. And it gets worse. I’ve just realised that the only way they can get what the winningest athlete in frame 7 is going to get is with the use of a certain performance enhancing substance. Little blue pills, I’m told, are very popular with the bowlers in the Wednesday arvo Mixed Pairs.

    @leone- You try and drug test a bunch of seniors and get a single clear test.

    Realising your idols have feet of clay and are easily manipulated. Disturbing.

    That they are groomed from the age of 12 to think of nothing but sport should have made this possibility obvious if not inevitable.

    drovers, I have a working title of *Sprort - but Capitalism also sums it up neatly. Both will be run past the focus group.

    The fact that mega-bucks are involved makes it almost automatic that the drug dogs will be present. I’m surprised that anyone else is surprised. Good old Andrew Demitriou can always be relied on to be on side with the mega-buck brigade. “Adhering to the ‘three-strike’ code”. I imagine he would have allowed Lance Armstrong the right to contest another three Tour de France races.

    Money makes the world go ‘round in many sordid ways; money, money, money, money and bugger the sword bowlers, and the bummers.

    We all know where this is headed:

    Drugs in sport.

    Dogs in sport.

    Drugs in dogs.

    Sniffer dogs.

    Date of destiny.

    What about the musicians? Clandestine taking of Beta Blockers to enhance playing performance is rife throughout the classical music community. And that’s just a gateway drug - no one’s thought to posthumously strip John Lennon of any of his gold records because of drug use, have they.
