Visnovsky was one of our best players, so I don't know what the hell you were watching

agreed he was awesome. Invisible how? Because he played so solid and didn't make turnovers you assume he was invisible? Just because he doesn't light the lamp it means he sucks?

That's not what I'm saying at all. I'm saying that "I didn't realize that my over the counter drug was illegal" is the most frequently used excuse in the book. When a hockey player uses it it's much ado about nothing. When a baseball player or a track star uses it it's front page news.

There is a clear double standard in how the media reacts to doping stories.

True but this is a different story. He went and got clearance but took to much. IOC admitted it was the medicine and only given a warning. I do agree the over the counter excuse is bs for obvious athletes. When you see buffed out athletes use that excuse you know it's crap
