  • 19:10 Lets look at white-collar crime. It causes no direct harm (like an assault) and what makes the act criminal is based on what we as people perceive as right or wrong. Those cultural ideas are then translated into law. So take insider trading, by your logic we shouldn't go after insider traders because they can afford really good legal teams who can get them off if enough money is spent. We obviously don't do that because not trying to catch anyone guarantees we catch no insider traders. If we catch less at the time and go back and catch them later then any harm they did has already been caused but it ruins their reputation and will deter (som not all) others. For me doping tests are the same, we decided that to keep the playing field as level as possible we should test. Marion Jones had all of the resources but she had medals taken off of her and her name is mud.

  • 8:00 a fairer playing field for everyone to cheat. What about those of us who don't want to, it just guarantees people like me can never compete. At least in a less than perfect drug testing world we can go back and ping people retrospectively. I might be pissed off I came 4th and then moved to 3rd way after the photos have finished being taken and I am retired but its something at least. In a world of sporting ego's and BS about 'legacies,' those cheats who get caught later and the stadium named after them gets its name changed its going to hurt them.

  • You really turned me around on this. I was in the "ignorant about anti-doping" camp, and felt that anti-doping was a means to level the playing field. It doesn't take long to realize that it's a thin and ineffective means of appeasing some individuals without actually solving any problems.

  • The "create a level playing field" thing is such obvious nonsense. If anything it's exactly the opposite. It's adding yet another differentiating factor i.e. people who find a way to not get caught get a huge advantage. In that sense, it's no different than access to good equipment or coaches. The only way to create a level playing field is to make sure everyone has equal access to the resource. In the case of drugs, that means either testing has to be perfect, or you have to let everyone take them. edit: lol, i unpaused the video, and Clarence said the same thing.

    Denis LilaDenis Lila18 päivää sitten
  • I get your point, but just because everyone is allowed to take any drug, that Doesnt change the fact some people have more money/better connection etc. The playingfield would still not be fair cuz those people could get better drugs then the rest, and the rest might still get dirty shit cause it would B cheaper

  • Commenting for the algorithm. I remember reading a book on the Balco debacle when I was young. Don't even know how it ended up among the books but, there it was. Still, I didn't think it was as even as widespread as you've talked about. Wondering how much of it is involved in European football/soccer.

  • yes, I'm 55yrs old, almost 50yrs in all kind of sport and I can say I have seen almost everything. I have lost in Balcan Championship Weightlifting to a guy from East Block Country in 1997y. He was obviously ''on'', he was shaking like a twig and eyes bloody red like a vampire. He beats me so easy that I'm sure he will lift 20kg more if he had to. Then I have heard about ''milk drops'', Test suspension, hiding and clearing agents, I was so disappointed I almost quit the sport entirely. So, F**K THE DOPING CONTROL, I 100% AGREE!!!

There should be no drug testing, iwf should focus on judging instead of making stupid rules who can complete and why. Every athlete should be free to use whatever they want and get help from their country for what they use. Period. Looking at these old farts trying to write laws and decide between what's right or wrong is ridiculous. You don't want to take it, don't take it. If someone wants to compete,get them compete

  • Hey Clarence, I don't know if you'll read/see my question at all (maybe I should get Patreon and I would have a better chance of Irish-senpai noticing me again) but I have a big question for you. I've been following you since 2011 and know of all your trials and tribulations with the Irish WL federation and sports council, and getting funding when you were actually competing. To me in my eyes I see your decision to take drugs at least in part due to frustration with that whole system and the lack of support it gave you personally as an athlete. From the beginning there seemed to be bad blood. My question to you is, do you think you would have went this route with anabolics if you lived/were born in a country with a better support system and structure, like Germany, South Korea, Spain, etc? I'm not asking "would you have reached the same numbers" as probably not, just would you have stayed "natty" if you had coaching that didn't suck for lifters not using copious anabolics and a proper support system of funding, but also access to doctors, physios, etc, in a national team setting? I hope you find this as interesting of a hypothetical question as I do. Thanks!

  • I’m a trans weightlifter and I can’t even begin to describe how the “anti-doping” and “fair sport” rhetoric is so harmful to us, trans women especially. When trans women win medals, they’re immediately under scrutiny bc of their gender, because “it’s not fair” as if all the other cis women they’re competing against aren’t on drugs.

  • People who don't know much about professional athletics live with the naïve ideal that in a perfect world, drugs are cheating and of course you can't cheat to win as a professional athlete because that just isn't allowed. Whether you agree that it should be allowed or not doesn't really matter, because it simply is and that isn't going to change anytime soon, no matter what laws or regulations are put in place. Better to simply draw attention to the reality of it so people can educate themselves on what it really is and what it means for pro athletes and maybe also how it can be done more safely. No amount of regulation or precautions have managed to stop it yet and doubtful any ever will because the reality is that most organizers and sponsors secretly don't want it stopped because athletes that can perform beyond natural ability draw more money and attention to the sport and the athletes themselves have to continue to push to keep up with that demand. Excellent work Clarence.

    • @benadryl cabbagepatch well you can have your opinion but if you read USADA protocol, even if you have access to short metabolite PED, its difficult to hide it. plus, IV is considered PED now that its banned and steroid is just one example of PED. USADA cathces all kinds of PEDS, not just steroids. your blatant statement of 'everyone is on steroid' show that you take a simplistic approach and over generalize. we know ani-doping isn't 100% but you cannot deny getting randomly tested 20 times a year vs no anti-doping the consequences are obvious. also everything you say is just word of mouth there is no evidence to support of it. its the same criticism i give to clarence.

    • @WB L costa got busted for using IV, not for steroids and rodolfo never got busted. Also passing drug tests does not mean a fighter is clean.

  • I fully agree that most of if not all top level athletes are on drugs. But can someone help me understand why most aren’t caught? I know there’s ways to cheat and I also know that the best of the best (Ronaldo, bolt, Lebron) are given special treatment because of who they are and the money they bring in. But what I don’t understand is people like Aphiwe Dyantyi, he is a professional rugby player that played internationally for South Africa. He was one of if not the best winger at the time when he got caught for doping and was given a 4 year suspension. Why? Why do only some top athletes get caught instead of being allowed to get away with it? Is it just to make it look like they’re testing properly or is it just some other sort of corruption?

  • You're absolutely right. But I think the main problem now is that sports are not about competition anymore. There is so much money and economic interests revolving around it, that its not about winning, losing or just fairly competing. Its mostly about preserving (possibly increasing) the value of the brand (a club or a single athlete), the visibility. In order to do this, u need to be in the elite, even if u dont win titles.
