I will never understand why folks risk their career for small dollar amounts.  While $100 was a
lot more in 1977 than now (maybe not?), still, it is a paltry sum compared to one's career.  WHY?
No doubt, there must have been a whistle-blower.

Equally, why do guys cheat during a contest?  For what?  These are not a life-altering events.
I just can't help but think back to the recent log-padding that caused a multi-year, retro DQ and
a multi-year ban.  WHY?  Was it worth it?
