I think sports’s different things to different people.
Yeah, I don’t know if it was ever confused with, ideas of or nobility. I think it’s, competition. And between human beings, if you think about it, takes into all accounts.
But if this. . . in a competition both should be equal, should start off in equal positions. . .
I don’t know, maybe in a perfect world.
And then the difference comes from or speed, you know - and cheating - natural, natural, - and cheating - natural strength and speed.
And cheating is probably. . . I mean. . .
There are different kinds of cheating, too, - picaresque - I mean. . . there are some things are a bit more . This recent case, there was a rugby player who. . . the team had, had used up all of their allowed changes of players. So the coach sent him out with a fake blood capsule in his mouth. So that when it, when it burst it looked like he was and he had to be sent off the field and they could send on a better player. It’s kind of clever.
.
Yeah, I mean it’s competition. . . it’s competition, you should use all the that you have.
All is fair in love, in love and war, yeah? That’s what you’re saying?
I mean. . . it’s something like this. If we, if you think about it from a philosophical of view, those who are able to conquer their foes, with whatever means, be it or otherwise. . . - drugs - maybe they don’t need as many rules to govern their actions.
They’re above ?
Perhaps.
I don’t know. I think with sport, we do need some rules and , and rules of conduct and behaviour. Gentlemany, gentlemanly behaviour. You know? I think without that -
I don’t know how many people consider rugby or football a gentlemanly . Perhaps cricket.
Maybe fifty years ago.
Yes.
But it’s true that things, things are changed a lot. Especially with technology now, they’re making kinds of advances in. . . - of course - athletes’ and. . .
Of course.
It gets very borderline as to whether it’s cheating or not.
With gene therapy they’re talking, I’ve heard about blood vessels that the capacity of normal human . . . or blood cells that increase the capacity of normal human capacity for oxygen. Which means you could perform for much harder and much longer without being .
Well they were doing this, also, with blood transfusions. I think plasma and other things to, inject more . . . white blood cells is it?
I don’t know.
Into a person so yeah so more and the ability to produce, or have more oxygen in the body. And I think they’re, nowadays I mean with new technologies, biolo-, biological technologies they’re developing things like . . . they’re modifying the glucose cycle. The genetic , all sorts of things.
So we’re not, now we’re not going to know who’s the fastest, who’s the strongest because it’s going to be . . . you know, if I race against you, you’re going to have some of these blood vessels in you, you’re going to win.
Yeah, yeah.
Sure, we’ll know . . .
on a normal day I think, I’d . . . might be able to beat you in a race.
Yeah, well. –yeah -.That’s going to be the future.
I think we’ll know; it’ll be the team. We’ll just see more Real Madrid’s on top.
Yeah, exactly.
