Cheater #1 - Alex Rodriguez, a baseball player, was penalized by Major League Baseball this week for use and possession of banned performance-enhancing substances, including testosterone and human growth hormone, and for engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct or frustrate the investigation into the matter.
Penalty - suspension for 211 games (through to the end of 2014.)
Cheater #2 - Oracle Team USA, a sailing team owned by Larry Ellison, was found guilty this week of cheating by illegally modifying their AC45 catamarans used in the America's Cup World Series. See video about the cheating.
What do you think the penalty should be for Oracle Team USA's cheating?
How about a suspension for the team for a certain number of "games"?
It doesn't even have to be as draconian as the 211 games that Alex Rodriguez was hit with.
It seems to me that a reasonable penalty would be to suspend the team for their next 17 scheduled races or 9 days of racing, which would only be to the end of next month.
Wouldn't that be fair?
What do you think?
