If you want the horrible truth, I spend a fair amount of my working life 'correcting' people. It's good for my karma to admit when I've been stupid.

All this happy talk - maybe I will start posting trollish comments.

Default Italian Olympic Committee

A must-read:

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/ital...lem-in-cycling

. Roberti is a former military judge and angered the Italian Olympic Committee anti-doping investigators by refusing to share evidence he has collected during his meticulous investigations.

Why wouldn't the Olympics movement let law enforcement/judicial do their job then come in later, after their work is done? A perfect example of the IOC's "anti-doping controversy" policies.

Default Mark Block and Nike's London Olympics Box

An old story, but definitely offers some insight into just how much the IOC enables doping.

http://www.letsrun.com/2012/block-0701.php

Mark Block was banned by the USA Track and Field federation for 10 years starting just prior to the London games and was photographed leaving Nike's hospitality suite at the London games.

The guy running letsrun.com appears to have a conscience and gets the "big picture." Let's hope his press credentials haven't been rejected going forward.

Here's the discussion thread. None will be suprised it has some pretenders attempting every possible way to discredit the basic facts. http://www.letsrun.com/forum/flat_re...4667211&page=0

Default VeloNews IOC Summary

An excellent retrospective on the scandalous politics of the IOC. I'm shocked velonews would publish it as their long, long history of protecting UCI/USAC every way possible would suggest otherwise.

Legendary summary of corruption in sports governing bodies, first and foremost the IOC.
Good lord.

I mean you know it's rotten to the core, but still, to have it thrown in your face like this. Wow.
And the nature and depth of the corruption. Jaw dropping.

Lets see which media pick this up.
