David Howman Quotes


Everyone is resisting another WADA, they don’t want to have an independent body taking control over their fiefdoms and they don’t want to see another fall like a Russian fall and that would be likely if you had a world anti-corruption unit or whatever you wanted to call it. —David Howman You mold your style according the presidential requirements, i was a lawyer, a barrister who went to court every day. Every judge is different and you adapt your argument according to the judge so it sort of comes naturally. Howman, who often represented athletes in New Zealand who could not afford his services and paid in cricket bats and All-Blacks rugby jerseys, has been there through all the highs and lows. When WADA opened in 2003, drugs in sport had already become a worldwide epidemic and fair play was merely a quaint idea. Doping was firmly entrenched in the sporting culture, largely tolerated, if not tacitly accepted, by those who competed in everything from cycling’s Tour de France to baseball’s World Series. With no meaningful out-of-competition testing, a mish-mash of sanctions and banned substance lists, entrepreneurs such as BALCO mastermind Victor Conte operated in near impunity, pushing out designer steroids faster than tests could be developed to detect them. From a small headquarters in Montreal, WADA has grown into a global agency with four regional offices and 35 laboratories, although four are currently under suspension. —David Howman It would be nice to see these things through but you know you have to leave at some stage so you’ve got to be committed to saying, OK it’s time, i’ve left in place a team that is extremely competent they can take over and do it as well as I could have. —David Howman While the NFL and Major League Baseball are not signatories to the World Anti-Doping Code, in recent years WADA has been working with them and other professional leagues in the United States to try to bring them closer to WADA’s program, in particular with the NFL, we have been offering guidance to enhance, and increase the transparency of, their testing program. —David Howman Al-Jazeera’s allegations are very concerning, particularly as it relates to the NFL’s and MLB’s testing programs, while the NFL and Major League Baseball are not signatories to the World Anti-Doping Code, in recent years WADA has been working with them and other professional leagues in the United States to try to bring them closer to WADA’s program. —David Howman

Best Quotes By David Howman

As it relates to the particular allegations by Al-Jazeera, WADA expects that they will be carefully investigated by the relevant authorities and that, if warranted, necessary and appropriate steps would be taken. —David Howman He was able to beat the system in ways and means where others were complicit and others understood what he was trying to do. And I’m not just talking about his team. There was a healthy disrespect for the rules. I don’t think that will happen again, we spent a lot of time, a lot of money. We fended off a lot of legal action (that was) all for nothing. And we’re not going to be compensated. We haven’t even been apologized to, and that’s regrettable. —David Howman (The NFL has) a bit of an issue with their collective bargaining agreement, which has not lent itself to the same, let’s say, progressive anti-doping program that the Major League Baseball people have, and similarly at the NHL, i think there needs to be an attitudinal shift from the players. They should be making sure that they’re delivering clean sport. They should be making sure that they’re not protecting the bad guys, the one or two who may try to cheat or actually cheat. —David Howman I don’t confine my comments to the NCAA within the United States. I would say internationally that’s an area where there needs to be much more done because there are young athletes who are tempted to cheat in order to try to get the professional contracts, i don’t think you can even say that there’s such a thing as an amateur athlete these days except within the college system in this country. —David Howman They will say they don’t fail tests because they’re all doping free, they need to be dovetailed, so there is a consistency and a profile built up of players that is across all these particular programs. —David Howman
