It's impossible to strip somebody of their titles unless you can prove that they were won under the influence of drugs/ or whatever the hell the dopers do to stay ahead of the pack. If you can prove that player X won tournament Y whilst under the influence of performance enhancers then by all means strip them of THAT title and prize money and any titles and monies won in the following 2 year period...However you can't just award those titles to the runners up as you can never know who along the the trail the drugster's list casualties might have gone on to win those tournaments. It's not like athletics where it is obvious that but for a drugged up winner, the 2nd placed athlete would have gone on to win the race....
