Spieth's fizzy drinks and disappointed Rala - It's Comments of the Week

Here are some of your finest offerings on the week’s biggest stories.

FORMER WADA CHIEF Dick Pound delivered the second part of the damning report into world athletics’ doping crisis — but Eoin Cowan may have missed the point:

Who names their son Dick Pound???

Eoin Keith shattered the course record in ‘Britain’s most brutal race’, and Teddington was one of many seriously impressed readers:

I am in awe of this man but at the same time I think he needs to see a psychologist about this disease he’s suffering from that makes him want to do this! I’m tired after driving that distance.

Fran Heavey had his say on the Ballon d’Or longlist and, in particular, Iker Casillas’s nomination:

I play in the CCFL Saturday League and I deserved a place on that long list ahead of Casillas.

And Fran made it a double when he weighed in on Munster’s decision to recruit Andy Farrell:

Is our sudden Irishisation of Andy Farrell our response to the Saoirse Ronan debacle?

After Wednesday night’s results saw Leicester draw level with Arsenal at the top of the table, we asked if the Foxes can go all the way and win the Premier League. John F believes:

Leicester could win it because they are the only team around the top who are performing above their level, all of the big boys are under performing by a long way

He’s one of golf’s biggest names, but Jordan Spieth’s decision to endorse Coca Cola didn’t go down well with Joe Bloggs:

As a sportsman, or any man really, that’s a terrible product to endorse.

News that Munster forgot to bring the correct kit to France last week invoked mention of legendary Irish bagman Rala from John Carey:

Rala must be very disappointed with this.
