    Russia Doping Scandal

    Since the McLaran Report showed systematic, state sponsored doping by Russia,should the entire delegation be barred from the Olympics?

    At this point , I say yes! When China was found to be doping swimmers and the records were set , the entire program was not attacked.
    I feel it is about time they went after the country not just the ones who get caught. I M H O

    And now I read that the IOC [ I think] has tested past MEDALISTS and have found over 60 from the last two olympics,that have tested positive to banned drugs with the new tests.

    The IOC chickened out of banning all Russian athletes and will allow the sports committee themselves determine if they should be banned in each area. More politics?

    We talk about cheating all the time. It is always them. Is there any us? Many of your swimmers are huge. They are as big as other swimmers who we point fingers towards.

    I am sure there are some US cheaters,but the US antidoping program is taken as the model for how things should be run and there is not systematic, state sponsored cheating.

    I dont think all should be banned, but those who are clean should be allowed to compete. I would say def more drung testing, by non Russian members at random drug testing locations.

    WADA should be the "outside" drug testing committee
