Non-negative means they only tested the A sample. So they still have to test the B samples before declaring him positive of doping charges. But, interestingly enough, since this is his second offense, this will end up being a lifetime ban this time around.

Talking

A bit of topic, but current terminology really irks me. A "non-negative" should be called a "positive", just like a "person of interest" should be a "suspect". The media etc should stop the PC BS and call it as it is. Now I have had my vent, we can get back on topic.

D'oh...and there was me earlier in the day suppressing my cynicism and hoping his 'personal problem' wasn't anything too serious.

Also, as far as I know there is a distinction between non-negative and positive tests - something to do with discerning what chemicals are present and in what quantities. At least, that's how it worked in the (non-sports) drug testing lab I worked at.

non-negative IS the same as suspect. positive would be the same as guilty.

I've always loved the term "Non-Negative" another great double negative to equate a positive , everyone should use it in everyday life.

As for Pfannberger, at least his team didn't throw him under the bus. About all I can say on that matter.
