LOL. Entertaining. A perfect example of how many people debate politics.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
I feel as if the guy has been singled out, not because he was doping but because he was too successful. Unless the USADA is full of idiots they already know you aren't going to win the Tour without some sort of doping - and that is what bothers me a bit.
He wasn't targetted because he was doping but because he was too damn good at it and he won too many times. Had we won 3 Tours they'd of ignored him entirely. The point? Don't pretend to be against doping when in fact you're just against too much of it. The hypocrisy there bothers me.
I experience a form of this every day on the way to work. I can go 5mph over the speed limit and the cops don't care. However, if you make it obvious (10mph) over then they'll nail you. In both cases the law is being broken - so it isn't really the law that matters - but rather, who is being obnoxious about it.
Maybe the rule should be changed from No Doping to No Being Obnoxious.
