Professional Football is the new opiate of the masses designed to suck money out of people's pockets by inducing them to spend lots of money on pay to view matches, either at home on TV or through ticket prices, or on cheap to produce but costly to buy kit, and as for that bunch of panty wasters called football players.....

Greek and Turkish teams should all be banned from UEFA because they suffer from the same level of corruption, and Cypriot teams should occupy all the vacant spots.

Blimey. Bunch of cheating bastards....

Drug scandal rocks Turkey who could be thrown out of World Championships as 'dozens' of athletes test positive

EXCLUSIVE: Turkey is at risk of being thrown out of next month's World Championships in Moscow after "dozens" of its athletes tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in a series of recent anti-doping raids last month.

As part of a target-testing operation carried out by the International Association of Athletics Federations, large numbers of Turkish athletes were drug-tested both in and out of competition in the run-up to the Mediterranean Games, which were held in the Turkish city of Mersin from June 20-30.

The results of the anti-doping operation have yet to be made public but the number of positive cases is said to run into dozens.

"We’re talking about a lot of athletes," said a senior athletics insider. "It could be as many as 30."

It is understood that the athletes have all failed tests on their 'A' urine samples and are now waiting for the test results from their 'B' samples. Only then will the cases be publicly revealed, though a formal announcement is expected within days.

If the adverse findings are confirmed - and it is very rare for a 'B' sample to contradict the result of the 'A' - then it would represent one of the biggest ever doping exposes in athletics within a single country.

The decision of the IAAF to target Turkish athletes for drug tests follows a series of high-profile recent doping cases involving the country's track and field stars.

In May, it was announced that Asli Cakir Alptekein, who won gold in the women's 1,500 metres at the London Olympics, had been provisionally suspended after abnormalities were detected in her blood profile that indicated she had been cheating.

If found guilty of a drug violation by a disciplinary tribunal, she will be stripped of her Olympic title and banned for life, having already served a two-year suspension for doping.

Another of Turkey's most decorated athletes, two-time European 100m hurdles champion Nevin Yanit, was also charged with a drug violation in May after testing positive for a prohibited substance.

Last week, the crisis within Turkish athletics deepened when it was revealed that a further eight of its athletes were facing doping charges, including Esref Apak, the 2004 Olympic hammer silver medallist, who finished third at last month's European Team Championships in Gateshead.

Alarmed at the possibility of more Turkish athletes testing positive at the World Championships, it is understood the IAAF sent a team of drug-testers to Turkey in a preemptive strike.

The world governing body operates a global "registered testing pool" of elite athletes who are subject to out-of-competition testing, 18 of whom are Turkish, but the recent raids were focused more on second-tier athletes outside the elite pool.

The scale of the doping problem in Turkey is said to be so serious that the IAAF could now take the ultimate step of suspending the Turkish athletics federation and barring its athletes from competing at the World Championships, which begin on Aug 10.

The 2020 Olympics should be held in Pathos and funded by the Brit expats.
