I think the question comes at what point do you use drugs? If you are unable to play without the aid of them, I personally think that is where the line starts. The 'grey area' is a hard one to manage and I just don't think football is doing enough. The double standards compared to other sports is ridiculous. So many players have niggles and they use injections to get them through the game. Is that performance enhancing? If not, then could it be abused? In many sports there are TUE's which are certain drugs that can be given legally to bring you up to 100% A question cycling has gone through (they've moved on since) is whether you take more than you need that could be seen as enhancing your normal ability.

The question of sleeping pills to help plays sleep is another interesting one. Again going back to cycling, 1 rider got sacked and 2 others suspended for taking them without their team (Lotto Jumbo) knowing. (they were caught as they couldn't be woken up the next morning for a meeting)
On the question cobblerwatch raised about 'testing statistics would suggest this is not a huge problem in football', I don't know how regularly and crucially when they happen (I doubt very often) but the lack of positive tests to me can only be a bad sign.

Gregor Robertson case seems a regular one. If you are not sure of a contract, then you will do everything in your power to get fit. As a knowledgable man, If he wasn't happy about it, then I think there could be more to this than meets the eye.

anybody that knows the slightest inclination about the game of football knows that O'Toole should be in the team. We really do have some idiotic fans.
