There are similarities with the situation in the NFL, which at least now acknowledges it has a problem, in terms of the media/public reaction to doping in comparison to other sports (in this case baseball).

Lads I know that would sneer at cyclists during the Tour de France, "Sure they're ALL on drugs", shrug their shoulders at the idea of rugby players doping, "Sure look at how hard they get hit".
Would the media here (Kimmage aside) go after an international rugby player if they knew he had taken PED's in the past?
Would GThorn be willing to grenade that metaphorical ruck?
