There's no such thing as a pretty good aligator wrestler.
Yeah, I certainly think testing is better than not testing. Power numbers from the last couple of years are dropping, do you think that is coincidence, or evidence of testing working? There is now a fear of getting caught, where before there was none. Everyone inside baseball knew that roids were a growing epidemic in the late 80s/early 90s. It got way worse from there, culminating in what we got in 2003/2004. It could have been nipped in the bud when it wasn't so prevalent. For multiple reasons, though (bad press, not getting in a fight with the player's union, not making labor talks tougher, selling seats with guys hitting record #s of HRs...) baseball turned a blind eye to a minor problem and let it rage out of control. Its their fault, and the press is finally starting to say so, as well. Cycling is a bad example, IMO, also. In cyclying, like in track, the sport is so one dimensional that if everyone is using, no matter how talented you are, so are screwed if you don't use. Baseball requires more than just pure physical output. If cycling didn't test they would have ~100% using. From your post it sounds like you think there should be no tests at all?
And here I thought that you were referring to Joey Slaton!
UNI Panthers...Because it's just right.
