Ed, you and I both. Unfortunately, Andrew is right. The sport's brass has built the image of the sport on the backs of its stars. If a dozen of the WC medalists got busted (and it's quite possible that even more than a dozen are dirty) what would that do to the sport? The die hards would possibly even appreciate it and would stick with the sport but we're going to keep following the sport no matter what happens. The casual observer, knowing little more of the sport than a few big names, will more likely than not lose interest – especially if those few big names are among those who were busted.
