Well, given the posts of the past few weeks and the pathetic attempts of the IAAF to cover up the rather obvious drug taking by athletes, the revelations in the Sunday Times over the weekend should come as no great surprise.
So pointless wastes of space who run, jump, chuck stuff, swim, ride bikes and all the other overhyped and meaningless trivia that masquerades as sport of national importance take drugs to improve their performance. Well, after Lance Armstrong came clean (pun intended!) what did we really expect?
According to the Times, 29%-34% of the 1,800 competitors at the 2011 world championships had violated anti-doping rules in the previous 12 months. Surprise, surprise! That’s a lorra, lorra cheats! But the real surprise (not) is that the IAAF knew about all this shit going down and just suppressed the reports which, unsurprisingly, it had the power to do.
Now, to be honest, I always thought that Seb Coe was an attention seeking, arrogant, self opinionated cunt so I’m delighted that this ‘revelation’ has made his protestations over the last few weeks look pathetic, rather like the man himself. After all, he wants to be the head honcho of the IAAF so what did you expect him to say? “Yeah, OK. There’s loads of cheats out there but we really don’t want you know about them because it makes us look like a load of wankers.”? Well, that at least would have been honest, wouldn’t it?
There’s just too much credence and celebrity status awarded to these tossers. At the end of the day, how the hell do they make a living? I mean it’s not like they do anything important or even useful, is it?
I’ve got a simple, cost effective answer to all this – stop testing for doping altogether. Let these idiots waste their bodies with these substances and do what they like. It levels the playing field at a stroke, hopeful rids the gene pool of a few of the worst offenders and, to be honest, who really cares anyway?…
