Drummond sues Tyson Gay and the USADA

FORT WORTH — Olympic gold medal winner and track and field coach Jon Drummond is suing top sprinter Tyson Gay and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, alleging that they falsely accused him of administering and providing performance-enhancing drugs to the star athlete.

The defamation lawsuit was filed Wednesday in Tarrant County civil court against Gay and Travis Tygart, the chief executive officer of the USADA.

Gay was handed a one-year ban by the USADA this month and told to return his silver medal from the 4x100-meter relay at the 2012 Olympics after testing positive for a steroid at the U.S. championships in 2013.

Drummond, who coached Tyson from 2007 to 2012, said he was notified in mid-April that the USADA intended to seek a lifetime ban against him, preventing him from participating in any professional activities related to track and field, according to the lawsuit.

1. Who? Do you mean Tyson Homosexual?



In addition to blocking traffic from websites they don’t like, it looks like the web-geniuses behind the American Family Association’s OneNewsNow site have a few other tricks up their sleeves, such as automatically replacing any use of the word “gay” with the word “homosexual” in any of the AP stories they run … leading to instances in which proper names are reformatted to meet their ridiculous standard, such as this article about sprinter Tyson Gay winning the 100 meters at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials in which he is renamed “Tyson Homosexual”:

Though AFA has since corrected its article, it looks like this auto-replace feature has been embarrassing them for quite some time now:

And while they may have fixed this particular instance, it looks like they haven't gone back through their archives and corrected other articles where this happened, such as this article where professional basketball player Rudy Gay is referred to as "Rudy Homosexual."
