    The guy is a disgrace for the entire sport. But, as ususal, nothing will happen. People don`t care about such things.

    Well, I was wrong. He was banned and fined as well. It is a very cheap fine,but at least it is a beginning. I know that I’m the only one bothered by those cheats, but it’s nice to get some compensation from the authorities.

    I don’t think you are the only one bothered by cheating RL

    Three years is nowhere near enough of a deterrent for such an offence. If I were an Irish trainer who had not used steroids before – I’d now be thinking potential gains of using steroids are worth the chances of being caught. :roll:

    Gosh …3 years sounds lenient though

    Cheating should be met with a life ban , nothing less will do ,,,once it is proven beyond any doubt , life bans would change the landscape …pretty darn quickly

    When I saw the thread title, I thought RL had meant to go to the Silk Road site and post an order :)

    Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the difference. https://lazybet.com/

    Ricky’s right. There is no way to be too severe.

    Life ban, all previous results annulled and compensation due to all owners/trainers whose horses were beaten by Fenton’s animals would be fair.

    If they also made it a criminal offence like they have done for athletes in Germany, this would be a further deterrent.
