Lots of holes in the argument but I can see this as being part of the 4 yr ban suggestions.

However that little Bacca player was on growth and now best player in world.

--------
(Lionel Messi):

-For a recognised medical condition. Therefore, presumably a similar situation to a diagnosed asthmatic being allowed to use an otherwise banned substance. Although in those cases the use of that substance is ongoing. Yes he benefits from it by being 5'6" rather than 4'7" as he was predicted to be without it. However, he is still short for a man and is disadvantaged in some ways. Like many short players he happens to be a great dribbler.

Have you noted that a ridiculously high percentage of Aussie swimmers are asthmatic and that not one commentator has raised a question that the best player in the world was on a highly beneficial drug the effects of which do not diminsion over time.I don't mean he does not shrink.have you noticed he seems impervious to being kicked about.Are his bones and joints so dense as to improve his performance.Have not a clue but then the question never get raised.

Our sport will get continued bad PR but other sports seem to glide over their problems.
