I'm not completely opposed to the idea of CCN contacting Lance. Lance seems ripe for bus-throw-undery (credits Dear Wiggo). Strike while the iron is still hot, Vayer may have thought.
And yes, the truth could eventually also set Lance free.
His recent interview with CN was like a wind of fresh air. For the first time I saw a glimpse of sincere repentance and self-reflection, even though it were just flashes. I briefly had a feeling that his sworn enemies (Floyd, Paul) must not necessarily remain his enemies till eternity. Of course, still a long way to go. But I'd be willing to welcome a truthful and repentant Lance back into society, provided he rats out Pathetic and Heinous.
Premature was a good choice of word. I was thinking about beleidigt and kindisch.
And happy my thoughts about certain individuals are once more confirmed.
This is one of those points, when true faces are shown.
This is the point when people interested in cleaner cycling can be seperated from people who are still and were always just sitting on the trainwreck of hate, playing cycling-saints as a magic hood to hide the hate.
That threadopening monkey and the rest of his beloved, holy crew are the best example. Anyway, appreciated.
But more appreciated are those who did really convert into cycling saints by just making sense.
Sadly they are very rare, but always welcome...those converts.
When you like digging in dirt, you have to consider that you will have to work with dirt.
Ashden's main point, which is that he wasn't informed or included well enough, is just pretextual. He wouldn't have cared if it was anyone else.
He reminds me of a gynaecologist who does pick his patients.
