Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

Wanted to put this in the first thread (The W), but it's locked, so...

Attorneys say Jones' 'B' sample came back negative (sportsillustrated.cnn.com)


    Questions have long been raised about the reliability of EPO testing, and this negative `B' test will spark further debate.

    "I believe there are issues with that test," said Howard Jacobs, another Jones attorney who has defended several athletes on doping charges. "It's a difficult test. From what I saw on the `A' sample, it was questionable as to whether it should've been called a positive. I can't say I was shocked that the `B' came back negative based on what the `A' looked like."

See, if it had been steroids that she tested positive for, I would have been quick to be skeptical that Marion had been clean for the race in question. EPO just made no sense given what Marion does, and as I thought, the backup sample proved it.

Sorry, wmatistic, better luck next time. ;)

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Honestly with the other evidence leaked from the grand jury, I was already convinced she was cheating so this to me was just kind of the rest of the world seeing it. If she wasn't in this particular case, well good for her. But I don't buy the arguement that EPO isn't something that would help her just because it's more for endurance. She has to race several times in a day and it could help there, or multiple events as she usually does, and certainly it would allow her to train for longer periods of time which would help come race day. Argument doesn't hold water, and combined with her ex saying he saw her use EPO and her coach being known to have provided EPO to several track stars it wasn't a good excuse and I think that's part of what irked me.

That said, again I'm glad she was clean in this case, but a little unsure of why one test is weighted more than the other.

It's not. If you are clean in the A sample, I don't think they test the B sample at all.

Any clean result is weighted as authoritative, if I understand how it works.

On one hand, it's like they're saying 50% is a passing grade. But on the other I guess having one test say you're clean puts enough doubt into the process to where they could never uphold a suspension in a court so they take the easy route and let it go.

Guru is correct. If either sample says you're clean, then you're clean. That's pretty much the standard in drug testing no matter where you go.

She finished fourth in the qualifying. The person that finished 28th gets to go on to the next round, but she doesn't.
