"Question lads:
When players constantly, blatantly dive in front of millions, then deny it (alongside managers and coaches) post match when replays clearly show they cheated, should we give them the benefit of the doubt that they don't dope behind closed doors?"

(I'm asking here as I don't think it'd be allowed on the general football/soccer thread)

Been using that line for years, with a small adjustment: make sure to mention the diving is for a potential gain on one play while the drugs are for guaranteed gains on every play.

Or don't. Don't ruin people's fun.

The Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, also known as the Helsinki Commission, today announced the following briefing:


Thursday, February 22, 2018
3:30 p.m.
Capitol Visitor Center
Room SVC 203

Live Webcast: http://www.facebook.com/HelsinkiCommission

In 2016, Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov blew the whistle on Russia’s state-run doping program, revealing a deep web of deception and fraud that he had once helped facilitate. This revelation led to the total ban of Russia from the 2018 Winter Olympics and intensified the debate over corruption in sports.

After fleeing Russia for fear of retaliation, Dr. Rodchenkov now lives a precarious life in the United States, relying on whistleblower protections and fearful that Russian agents may one day come knocking.

This briefing features Dr. Rodchenkov’s attorney, Jim Walden, for a conversation on combating fraud in sports and the role of whistleblowers in safeguarding the integrity of international competitions. It will also include a discussion of the Oscar-nominated documentary Icarus, which chronicles Dr. Rodchenkov’s journey from complicit head of Russia’s anti-doping laboratory to courageous whistleblower.
