No number of wrongs ever make a right. Yes, the #replacementrefs blew a lot of calls last night going both ways.
It is time for honesty and honor to come back to our sporting events. The players/athletes all know whats right and wrong maybe a little self policing by the teams would go a long way. Coaches need to call BS even if it means reversing a call favorable to their team. Show our kids what honesty and honor really are and what role models should be.

There is an arms race between doping labs and doping detection labs. Many of the substances which are undetectable during one sporting season become detectable a few seasons later. Current standards keep old samples around for many years and have new tests run on them as they come out. So they can detect doping from 5 years ago, and 5 years from now they'll be able to detect today's doping. These efforts should certainly be better funded and encouraged.
The real problem lies in the culture of doping and its incentives, and I think most effort should be placed in changing the culture. Athletes should be encouraged to blow the whistle and discouraged from following the "everybody does it" lure. Most importantly, sponsors should become financially responsible for their athletes' doping. The athletes who get caught nowadays don't have to give back their endorsement payments retroactively. This should be changed.
Plussers, represent! Let's let those #iSheep feel the burn!
