    导出博客文章Its a malaise as old as sport itself. In the wake of recent revelations,
    following a Russian cyber espionage group making athlete drug testing
    information public, the question of what qualifies as an unfair advantage in
    sport has yet again surfaced.Rafael Nadal,who is known to have a strong view on
    the matter, asserted that sport should be clean and look clean. He said, Its
    terrible news. We cannot though believe an agency which is outside our
    anti-doping programme.Hackers, nicknamed Fancy Bears, leaked drug records which
    suggest that Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Simone Biles and a host of other
    athletes have been using Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) drugs. The WADA though
    was quick to confirm that the athletes had been granted TUEs by the concerned
    sports federation and national anti-doping organisations.TUE certificate allows
    an athlete to use an otherwise banned substance with the intent of aiding a
    genuine medical condition. The leaks raises doubts over the provision being more
    abused than used.Personally, I know how hard the controls are. We are obligated
    to inform every single day of the year where we are and set aside one hour of
    each day for anti-doping control, Nadal added.Tired of being accused of doping,
    Nadal had written to the International Tennis Federation president earlier this
    year, asking for all his drug-test results and blood profile records to be made
    public.All sportspersons who believe in the spirit of the game, want to compete
    against other clean sportspersons. I believe in the anti-doping programme 100
    per cent. If people are not doing the right things, they dont deserve to be part
    of the world of sport, he said.
    Reddick Cardinals Jersey
    . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the
    Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when
    their ragged power play continued to struggle.

    .Y. - General manager Billy King says the Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a big
    man and confirmed the team worked out centre Jason Collins, who would become the
    first openly gay active NBA player if signed.

    . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey
    Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of
    focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his
    struggling team. That came on the heels of Bryan Murray taking the unusual step
    of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the
    players himself.

    .Y. - Jerome Samson scored once in regulation and
    again in the shootout as the St. The Denver Nuggets were cruising as they hit
    the midpoint of their six-game road trip Thursday. They had built a healthy lead
    over the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center on Wednesday with the ball
    moving around the perimeter and finding open shooters.The well slowly dried up.
    The ball movement stopped as Washington upped its defense. The lead quickly
    disappeared. The Nuggets looked like they ran out of gas, fatigue killing the
    teams spacing and ball movement as the Wizards found that last bit of
    energy.Denver scored just 12 points in the fourth quarter, seeing a two-point
    deficit balloon to a 92-85 loss on the road. The Nuggets had just 33 points in
    the second half and committed a league-high 29 turnovers this season. As the
    game wore on, Denver saw the energy that built them as much as a 14-point lead
    evaporate. Their sharpness and precision whittled away.There are repercussions
    to not being ready to play (Wednesday night), Nuggets coach Michael Malone told
    Christopher Dempsey of The Denver Post. Back-to-backs are always tough, but when
    you have to dig so deep to make it a three-point game late (Wednesday) night,
    they jumped on us in that second half. You could see our pace slow down, we
    missed free throws, we missed open shots, and thats what fatigue does to you.So
    is the energy-sucking reality of a road trip.The Nuggets will head to Orlando on
    Saturday for their fifth game on a six-game road trip that has taken them from
    Utah to the East Coast. It is Denvers fifth game in nine days. Adding in all the
    travel, it is an exhausting set.The Magic know all too well the rigors of
    travel. Saturday represents the ending to one of the most difficult stretches
    they will see this season.Orlando returned home from a five-game road trip
    Wednesday in a loss to the Boston Celtics. The Celtics, like the Wizarrds did to
    the Nuggets, blew the doors open in the second half, outscoring the Magic by 31
    points for a 117-87 win.dddddddddddd. It was a disappointing and frustrating
    moment for a Magic team that won four of five games on that road trip.As dutiful
    players, no one would blame fatigue for the blowout loss at home.I dont think
    that should be an excuse as far as us coming off a back-to-back, Bismack
    Biyombo. Everyone is playing back-to-backs. There are a lot of teams winning
    back-to-backs. We have to be responsible and handle our business. We have to
    find a way to get back to playing our game, trust the next guy, do the right
    thing and set the right screens and get back to being the team we want to
    be.Undoubtedly, though, fatigue played a role. The team just completed an
    eight-day, five-game road trip that ended with a back-to-back at home against
    the Celtics. That would make six games in nine days, an incredibly brutal
    stretch.And the last game of that road trip began the Magics only stretch of
    four games in five nights. Orlando completes that stretch with Saturdays game
    against the Denver Nuggets, making for eight games in 12 days. That is about as
    jammed a schedule as any team in the NBA will have for any stretch.That fatigue
    and that exhaustion got tested in Charlotte as Orlando fell 109-88. In the
    process, the Magic may have lost three key players to injury. Bismack Biyombo
    (shoulder), Nikola Vucevic (knee) and Jeff Green (ankle) all left during the
    game because of injuries.By the time Saturday comes around though, the Magic may
    very well be exhausted. So too might the Denver Nuggets with how their schedule
    is playing out.The schedule, though, does not wait for any team. ' ' '
