    Armstrong got better than he deserved. The process that got him banned for life was only necessary because the process that should have caught him was corrupt and rotten to the core. He was essentially caught with law enforcement techniques, which will also eventually be used to catch all the dopers in tennis, which also has a rotten doping control system, just as law enforcement was necessary to root out doping in baseball. Do you think Al Capone got a raw deal? He was taken down after some very rough police work of dubious legality. Maybe we should have let him off.

    And just look at baseball - scandals galore, record books rewritten, rules strengthened, number of drugs tests increased, and we still hear that last week Alex Rodriquez is allegedly still getting HGH shots in his house from some petty crook.

    Look at soccer, where the president of the Spanish football league allegedly oversaw the systematic doping of players at a top football club when he was head of that organization. Doping was legal in Spain and it now appears that this allowed a culture of doping to completely take over Spanish sports. I would not be surprised one bit if, eventually, we find that every Spanish tennis player in the top 100 has been doped to the gills for the past fifteen years. And we might even find that every top player, period, has been doing the same thing. The only reason Wayne Odesnick got caught is that he wasn't rich enough to hire a professional, discreet doping doctor, like Fuentes or del Moral, that could oversee his doping and organize the safe transport of his dope to tournaments around the world.

    If I were a player with a private jet I would be worried that the cops in Miami or Paris are planning to board and search it. Doesn't Djokovic have a diplomatic passport that makes him immune to the laws of countries he visits? Nice.
