    Because he was doping? Cheating is cheating no matter who does it.

    Where is the evidence? There is no proof that he doped.

    I think it's more likely that he doped as opposed the "the man" hunting down random athletes for god knows what reason.

    You actually need to do research to find the evidence, not just looking at a single article. Holy crap.

    I am now convinced that Striker is either an anarchist, a mormon hitler, or an eccentric enviromentalist.

    None of the above. There are few things that provoke me and targeting innocent people in a witch hunt is one of them.

    Ice, he tested negative for his drug tests. I doubt he was justly punished.

    Welche, I have read that on yahoo. Honestly, there is a chance his ban will be overturned.

    Of course there is a chance but if I remember correctly there are 10 witnesses who said he doped.

    Alright, but let me quickly throw this question out there.

    What would the government gain by targeting athletes, exactly?

    That is a matter of debate, Ice. Honestly, I think it is a show of power.

    I think the government would rather a show of pride in the state. That is a really bad reason for destroying a symbol of national pride.

    >Moronic
    Nope.
    This is a legitimate topic of discussion. You're just turning it into "Striker's an idiot, next". You can talk about the actual article on doping and stuff, instead of insulting him. If you wanna talk about Neil, make another thread and take it there. Thanks.

    On topic, someone answer me this.
    If I'm reading correctly, he's basically been at this since 1996? And it finally took now of all times for about 10 teammates testify against him?
    It's 5 in the morning, I could be being stupid again
