    Well, the whole point of any sentence like that is to punish the offender (in sports, by depriving them of the chance to compete and thus lose their source of income), with the idea being that after the sentence is complete they will have learned their lesson. Assuming they did not reoffend during that time, then sure, why not let them compete again?

    I think they should be allowed to compete after their ban. Once they've served their ban, that is their punishment. Just like once someone has served their time in prison, when they come out they theoretically should be considered just another person. Of course, this isn't always the case. But for an athlete, unless they should deservedly be banned for their entire life, then I don't see why they shouldn't be able to continue.

    Although they should be able to compete again, they are likely to be hated or disliked, as they would have destroyed their reputation and everyone will just involve them with cheating. Which is always going to be the case. Just like when someone comes out of prison, people will always change their views on them if they know they've been in prison.

    Yeah I agree with lewi, if the athlete has served his punishment, then he/she should be allowed to compete again.

    It's quite unlikely that they'll do it again after a long time ban, if they dope again they should be banned for life
    The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but Im just not close enough to get the job done.

    I think everyone knows my stance by now.

    For those who don't: War is bad, mmmkay! So is corruption, racism, sexism, prejudice, nationalism and cheese (though the latter not so much).
