Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro, the #1 Sunshine Queen
To be honest, I think that if we knew all that goes on behind the scenes, especially concerning PED that we would just give up on watching sports altogether. I take it that the article in question is about China (???). No, I wouldn't send the entire team home because there is always a chance that some (or even many) are completely innocent. It's also possible that some were doped without knowing about it themselves, or even that they were forced to take PED. And finally, it might benefit others who may be just as guilty. I've never been a fan of pointing the finger at "the big bad east" - be-it the former Sovjet Union, the DDR or now China while pretending that we're the honorable ones and that everything is hunky dory in the west. The fact that the west - including and especially the US has always been able to be up there in the medal count with those countries who's athletes are supposed to be doped suggests otherwise.
