UPDATE: David Pinto links to a Q&A with the renowned Charles Yesalis:
So is there anything that would get drugs out of sports?

If the customers of elite sport withheld their purchasing – turned off the TV or didn’t go to the stadium or ballpark because they were really irate about doping. Having said that, that is one of the stupidest things I’ve ever said. It ain’t gonna happen, period.
