Race radio. I commented on information with information - that is Ferrari did not appear to be using clever forms of words to sidestep questions as suggested by another poste
He may have been lying through his teeth - but he said "no involvement with doping" in various ways, also that he was actively examining court action against USADA - he said "court action" not "arbitration" which should interest observers of this process, and so it is worth considering why he said "court". It has also been done - that is Heras took the federation through spanish courts rather than cyclings own processes, and I believe the hold cycling has over doctors is weaker than it is over riders who are obliged to use arbitration first.
I think it unlikely he will, and certainly not until the italian investigations have concluded. The suggestion he might is interesting none the less. Why say it if he is not considering it?
What clogs up the forum is ad hominem posts devoid of content such as yours above.
[BTW - Butch Reynolds won huge damages against the US federation and rightly so. What the US supreme ruled on was a matter of jurisdiction, not his rightness of claim or entitlement to it. In short telling him he had to go after the international federation instead: I have said before one reason international sporting authorities such as IAAF, UCI, FIFA all hide in places like monaco and switzerland, and want local federations to declare sanctions in first instance, is so that the assets are protected from actions by athletes and to make legal challenge difficult when they get it wrong -by deliberately muddying the waters of jurisdiction - as they did in the Diane Modahl case and in that case it bankrupted the federation.
The main takeaway from both of those, is doping "justice" is far from flawless]
