Doping in other sports?

I think those two things are unimportant, I don't care about them. I think his actions seem to be on the side of what's good, so far. And that's good enough for me.
Cool. I think Magnus' conduct - and the fact that he has this orbit of disciples and much of the chess world is unwilling to call him out - cheapens what positive outcome there may be, and this appears to be the difference between us. Even if he may be right, I can't just excuse all his histrionics as being above reproach.

But hey, we know from cycling that we have different viewpoints on how much peoples' personal conduct away from their vocation should impact our stance on them within their vocation, so I'm happy to agree that Magnus is probably right to call out Hans, disagree on interpretation of Magnus' conduct in doing so, and leave it there.
 
Speaking of second order effects:


And from VG:


Det er en sørgelig sak, og det blir stadig mer klart at dette handler om en kultur i norsk og internasjonal sjakk hvor juks på nettet har foregått i massivt omfang. Og det har heller ikke blitt tatt så alvorlig som det burde ha blitt, sier Bae til VG.
Jeg visste at han hadde jukset. Alle sjakkfolk visste om det. Men det er fint at han står frem. Jeg synes ikke at han burde blitt president, men han har sikkert gjort en god jobb, sier Hauge.

Can you give a 10 second rundown for someone who can only speak English?
 
Sure, but there are far more diplomatic ways to do it, too, and given the status and gravitas that Carlsen has as a name and a voice in the chess community, to just go "take ball go home" and then resign by switching the webcam off and tantruming out of the room, rather than actually say anything about what he wasn't happy with (leaving us with that Mourinho interview post) while speculation ran wild?

Even if he may have been right about Hans, and certainly there had been plenty questioning him before all this kicked off anyway given his history and rapid development, if you didn't know who either of them were and were just given their ages, you'd have been forgiven for thinking Magnus was the teenager and Niemann the 30-something from their behaviour after the game that sparked it.
Niemann definitely does not come across like a 30-something from his behaviour.
 
Croatian football player Mario Vuskovic (Hamburger SV, 2nd Bundesliga in Germany) had a positive test - with EPO. This is unusual and quite interesting, we all know here there’s no EPO in football lol lol lol

That‘s going to be exciting.

Wow, and he's only 20!

There are probably some bigger stars they could pop in the Bundesliga, but I suppose this guy will do for now.
