Finding Excuses for Failed Drug Tests Goes High-Tech

ESPN reports that Melky Cabrera created a fake website selling a fake product to explain away his failed drug test.  My hat goes off to Melky for incorporating new technologies into PED denial, but this makes me long for simpler times when you could just claim someone spiked your toothpaste (or you ate weird Spanish meat, or had too much sex…).

Apparently the website cost $10,000.  That’s got me thinking. With all the PED use today, there’s got to be a market for plausible deniability.  You could create spikedsupplement.com, record transactions with ball players and cyclists for outrageous sums of money, and you wouldn’t even have to actually send them anything!  In fact, whether they’re using or not, a smart athlete should just set-up an autopay account as an insurance policy for when someone does spike their toothpaste.

  1. And then you go to jail for selling juiced supplements to athletes without their knowledge…because the records that you did it are all there (whether you actually did it or not)
