why hasn't anybody thought of an online petition asking for Phat's resignition?
CCN is of course aiming at that, but UCI can apparently simply ignore CCN and Cyclingnews and others are letting them get away with that.
I think (as others have also suggested) CCN's weak point is that those asking for the change are putting themselves forward as replacements. UCI can apparently pretend that they're dealing with a rebellious, mutinous minority trying to take over the ship.
But an explicit, direct, in-your-face online petition signed by the fans with enough votes and an explicit message would perhaps be more difficult for the UCI to ignore, especially if the press pick it up.
