Got to protect those endorsement $$$$'s

More spin that the gullible will fall for ... all done to get people thinking that Maria didn't get an unfair advantage. 

I'm not surprised though ... however, I am surprised that tennis actually caught one of their cheats ... more by default than by design, all things considered.

 

Edit: Nike have dropped off but they've had to jump off a few athletes in the more recent past (Armstrong included)

A cardiologist on SEN this morning described it as a dodgy drug that increases stamina. He stated it was performance enhancing.

The same cardiologist rubbised claims she would be using that drug due to her families history of diabetes and a magnesium deficiency. 

Russians and Eastern European athletes have a history of doping with the same drug.

well...there ya have it

With new found time on hands maybe she can pop over to Windy Hill and give a pep-talk !!

Yes she did admit her fault, albeit, sugar coated and made excuses. I don't believe for one second she has been taking meldonium for an illness for the last 10 years. 

Pushing the limits, sounds too familiar. A drug cheat is a drug cheat and I have no sympathy. 

I am with you Ethan. Maria has been taking a PED for years

WADA were to slow on this one

2 years min...

Tennis has been slow with  drug testing and gambling.

They are a classic example of why sporting organisations should not be supervising themselves.

They have a vested interest to find nothing wrong.

I lost interest in large international sport some years ago only to then find my loved AFL was as bad as the rest of them.

The more money involved the more corruption. The only reason I stay involved with AFL is the MFC but I take little notice of games that do not involve the MFC.

Gawd, imagine how much she'd get beaten by Serena if she didn't take it. ^_^

It's so hard to believe these claims about Sharapova. For a start...

The family doctor went rogue.

She was duped.

It was the good meldrumium.

It's not performance enhancing anyway.

She wouldn't take banned drugs ... she's a good Aussie sheila.

She's been set up by the WTA. They need a scalp and she's it.

She is so brave. #standbymaria

To paraphrase another demonlander who was talking about Tiger Woods, youse will know who, all they have to do is drug test Serena. If she's not on anything, it doesn't matter what the others are taking.

From wiki (so it has to be true!) ...

"meldonium “demonstrates an increase in endurance performance of athletes, improved rehabilitation after exercise, protection against stress, and enhanced activations of central nervous system (CNS) functions.”

There's no truth in the rumour that 'meldonium" increases ones ability to "screech" ... however, it is one of Latvia's largest exported products (apparently)

Like the Essendon players she was very careless and like them, she's gawn.

I don't know how careless she was ...

On the other hand, at least she put her hand up.

Good to see the sporting media the world over looking after there own.

"At a sensitive time for the sport, tennis may not be able to show shamed Sharapova much leniency after her failed drugs test."

    FEARS by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s worst fears about the absence of Max Gawn were realised when it received a shellacking from Fremantle’s ruckmen Sean Darcy and Luke Jackson who dominated the hit out tally in their game at Optus Stadium on Sunday by a massive 47 to 19. As a result, the 50-point deficit at the end of the game proved to be a loss that was long foreseen that was two years in the making and demonstrated a complete lack of hindsight and planning from the club. To add insult to injury, Jackson was a D

    RAIN CHECK by Whispering Jack

    The Frankston Dolphins broke a run of six straight losses against their neighbours, the Casey Demons and kept their hopes for a long-awaited return to the VFL finals alive with a 27 point victory over at Kinetic Stadium. Casey was welcomed to the Peninsula by grey skies, heavy rain and angry seas with threatening white-capped waves whipped up by gale force winds. After a slow start in the opening term when they failed to take advantage of the breeze, it appeared that the Demons had decided

    THE PEOPLE SPEAK by The Demonland Crew

    DEMONLAND - Good evening, Demon fans and welcome back to the Demonland 2024 Grand Final Podcast ... before we took that last phone call from a Demonlander, we were discussing how the club overcame it’s midseason slump, the season-ending injury to Christian Petracca and the loss for a brief period of skipper Max Gawn due to a  crack to the base of his right fibula, to slowly surge up the ladder turning our detractors into believers and how it ended the year triumphant in the finals with our capta

    EARLY BIRDS by KC from Casey

    Wet, slippery conditions and threatening rainfalls greeted the VFL Bombers at the end of their long journey southeast of the big city on Sunday. The threatening weather combined with the fact that neither side had realistic prospects of advancing to action in September, meant that spectators gathered at a cold Casey Fields weren’t expecting a classic exhibition of football. Nor did they get one. Instead they were presented with a dour struggle that never reached great heights. It was a
