    I've always believed that prison is for violent criminals who need deserved rehibilitation. Those who are non-violent and just commit white collar crime should be forced to pay restitution. Too many of these criminals just don't have to pay back their targets........

    Thats true and I agree, but one must also realise that this is 'professional' sport. That means it is a job, therefore there should be no real difference between a corporation boss committing fraud and going to jail and a sportsperson committing fraud by cheating IMO.

    With Marion it was mostly the check fraud left over.
