STAR LETTER.Byline: IAIN CAMPBELL Iain Campbell (born 28 June 1985 in Kirkcaldy) is a Scottish professional footballer currently playing for Scottish Premier League club Kilmarnock.
He started his career with Dunfermline Athletic and joined Kilmarnock in August 2006 for an undisclosed fee.
2YOUR story about cycling winner Alexandre Vinokourov having been a 'convicted drug cheat' sounded bitter and xenophobic xen·o·phobe
A person unduly fearful or contemptuous of that which is foreign, especially of strangers or foreign peoples.
Well, he did serve a ban two years ago and has since raced all over the world including the recent Tour De France.
He did serve his ban and has moved on, much like a member of Team GB (David Millar David Millar (born January 4, 1977 in Malta) is a Scottish road racing cyclist, currently racing for UCI ProTeam Saunier Duval-Prodir as a time-trial specialist. In 2008 he will be riding for Team Slipstream, and will become a part-owner. ) who also served a ban in 2004.
I don't think you would have mentioned it if a certain Mark Cavendish Mark Cavendish is a cyclist from the Isle of Man (born 21 May 1985). Originally a track cyclist competing in the Madison, points race, and scratch race, he moved on to become a professional road racing cyclist in 2007. had won!
Sean Atkinson, York IC SAYS: Perhaps not, but had Millar won..
@bradwiggins Well what a day, blind drunk Adj. 1. blind drunk - very drunk
besotted, blotto, crocked, fuddled, pie-eyed, slopped, sloshed, smashed, soaked, soused, sozzled, squiffy, pissed, pixilated, plastered, cockeyed, loaded, wet, stiff, tight at the minute and overwhelmed with all the messages IC TWEETS: To be fair, I think you were entitled Brad..
2WOULD you like to put the record straight by informing readers that Mark Cavendish also had a convicted drugs cheat on Team GB helping his bid for gold in David Millar.
It wouldn't have mattered if GB won I guess.
Ian Ayliffe, Salisbury, Wilts IC SAYS: I refer you to the above reply..
2I TOTALLY agree with Ian Holloway that drug cheats should have no place in today's sport.
Norman Grimley, by email IC SAYS: The debate over whether athletes caught should be banned for life will go on. 2IN the wake of the criminal investigation into the Terry/Ferdinand inquiry, I feel it's time players took more responsibility at the effect careless tweets and comments on the issue of race and the implications these comments are having on the footballing public.
Too many times we are hearing players from all sides misusing this fantastic tool due to the lenient punishments given by the governing bodies.
@Persie_Official Federer is the boss IC TWEETS: So you're leaving Gunners to take up tennis? It's now time a greater clampdown clamp·down
An imposing of restrictions or controls: "Advertisers and broadcasters would raise howls of protest against any strong clampdown" Wall Street Journal. is put in place by clubs, officials and players alike to protect the integrity of our game.
Michael Duncan Calvin, by email IC SAYS: Not sure about that, but players should be careful what they Tweet. 2I WAS very glad to see Bradley Wiggins win the Tour De France and strike gold but there is a question of whether he's a Brit.
Wiggins was born in Belgium to an Australian track cyclist.
Not a good combination for him to be called a True Brit is it? It looks as if the trend these days is to import as many foreigners as we can.
G. Naughton, Cheshire IC SAYS: If you check out Brad's Tweet above, I'd say he's definitely a Brit! 2THE demise of Portsmouth could have been prevented if the Premier League had been as decisive as the Scottish authorities action with Rangers.
Perhaps their fans should follow the club who a few years ago they mocked, Southampton! Who's laughing now? Joe Smith, by email IC SAYS: Many Scots would disagree.
@chrishoy Goooooooooold! Awesome!
