Shane Warne

  1. I assume everyone has heard the news already -- that's if you follow the cricket!! He reckons he knew he was taking the drug (whatever it was) to reduce fluid, but he didn't know it was a diuretic. WHAT THE.....????

    From the Australian Sports Drug Agency guidelines....

    "....What is inadvertent doping?

    Inadvertent doping occurs when an athlete takes a medication to treat an injury or illness without realising that it contains a prohibited substance.__

    Athletes are subject to anti-doping policies that enforce the principle of strict liability - athletes are responsible for any banned substances found in their body.__

    Athletes are responsible for checking the status of all substances and medications they consume._ Ignorance is no excuse!"


    Sorry Shane, but it looks like you are gone this time.....

    Took the words right out of my mouth. His Mum gave him a diuretic!! Hmmm that just begs the question...does he think he's fat???

    Well l think that the whole thing is very sad as all he will be remembered for (regardless of what happens at the tribunal) is all his mistakes and not his amazing talent - As l was saying to my BIL (who is a doctor - and loves cricket) this is quite a common practice amongst some people - i.e. for weight loss - i.e. before a wedding etc) Have a number of friends who have told me this is what they have done !!
    I do hope that eventually he will be remembered for his abilities.

    The plot thickens

    I read that the sample was given on the day that he announced his retirement after the world cup.

    The cynical view begs the question...did he think that they wouldn't disclose the results until then?

    Don't get me wrong. Shane is arguably one of the best cricketers the game has known and has my respect for that.

    Maybe the pressure at that level alters your thought processes?

    Anyway, a fair go is the least he deserves.
