Wednesday war room: Horse play

Wednesday, August 8th, 2007

The estimable Dave Doyle comments on the CSAC reducing James Toney’s drug suspension from one year to six months in length: Or maybe they’re sending the worst signal of all: Maybe California’s commissioners are a pack of hypocrites with a glaring double standard.

Monday mundane: Syringes for everyone

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

Gregg Doyel at CBS Sportsline has a new article on MMA’s drug culture titled Steroid scandal could destroy what UFC has built. He tends to write in more of an emotional style than say, me.

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

Your article of the day from the Associated Press about Oregon regulating MMA – despite the fact that MMA shows have already taken place in the state, just ask Matt Lindland.
