Coach defends player over cannabis test
From correspondents in Bratislava
December 3, 2005

SLOVAKIA Davis Cup captain Miroslav Mecir leapt to the defence of Karol Beck on Friday after the player was forced to battle allegations that he had failed a drugs test.

Beck, the world No.57, had to skip the opening singles rubber of the Davis Cup final against Croatia with his team insisting the 23-year-old had been ruled out through a knee injury.

Beck has also been ruled out of Saturday's doubles which could prove crucial to the tie which stands at 1-1 after the opening singles were shared.

"The doctor said that he would need two weeks to recover. I don't think therefore that he could play Saturday," said Mecir....

So Beck is a pothead? :confused: I thought Simon Larose was an apt example of what not to do...

It is a prohibited substance, but is not performance-enhancing, so he will probably only get a slap on the wrist. A lot of sports don't even regard cannabis to be an illegal substance. Still, what an idiot...

You really think you're that cool because you support a player who is #1 in the world (and I can't help but notice that you do so AFTER he became #1)?

You can think that Karol is a loser all you want, but he's won over a million dollars in prize money and has a successful career. What do you do? Brag over someone's accomplishments on a message board who doesn't even know you exist. Cheers!

Would you please just put me on ignore and stop following me around?

If you had any comprehension skills at all, you would know the difference between bragging and defending.

How do you know I only began to support Federer after he became number one? By your logic, every tennis fan innately knows of the existence of this message board. Great thinking there, genius. :rolleyes:

I've never seen fit to brag about Federer's accomplishments; they speak for themselves. Please show me a post where I in fact have bragged about Federer's accomplishments. As for Beck: I call him a loser because I don't like him. I very much doubt he would care, it only offends vacuous rabid fans such as yourself.

What do you do? Brag over someone's accomplishments on a message board who doesn't even know you exist. Cheers!

And what do you do? you're a fat moron who writes over 30 posts a day of crap, cheering on karol beck's accomplishments and lusting vainly over male tennis players. great work there son. :confused:

Miguel Gallardo of Mexico just got less than two months of a suspension for the same thing, and didn't even have to give back any prize money or anything, same thing most likely for Karol.

Well, I have to say that I am glad that weed is the drug that Karol is in trouble for.

He made a silly/foolish choice- since he is a professional athlete and you are tested for recreational drugs. I would be a hypocrite if I condemned him for smoking pot since I used to when I was younger and had friends who smoked up. And I still have some who do- including an econmics professor, a corporate attorney and someone in the financial field who works with one of the most highly rated mutual funds in the country. But- and this is a big but- Karol is in professional sports where you are tested for recreational drugs and he should not be so foolish.

Still, I am glad that it was not a performance enhancing drug. He was not trying to be a cheat. He was just being a bit of a dufus.
