Poor Pat, he is upset that anonymous people on twitter keep pointing out when he does something stupid.

The easy solution is to stop doing stupid things.....instead Pat chooses to write an email whining about it.

Is JV the team owner he's replying to?

It's disgusting the way that personal financial interests control world sport in both football and cycling (the only two sports I know all that much about).

A world cup in Qatar, and a WorldTour race in China feeding straight into Pat McFraud's pocket? It's like Sepp and Pat are having a contest to see who can do the worst job of running their given sport before someone says enough is enough. They're constantly raising the stakes to see who can be the most corrupt and who can be the most generally incompetent.

Mafia bosses missed a trick when they turned to selling drugs and prostitutes. They should have just gone down the sports governing body route instead.

McQuaid is really selling the idea that the UCI has an unassailable lock on cycling and that a rival league is just something that could never possibly happen.

Russian mafia went after FIFA hence they got the world cup.

Dunno where you're from, but the BBC did a couple of documentaries on FIFA corruption in the month or so before that vote. A lot of the tabloid press here started saying it was very unpatriotic of them, and that we should have kept our mouths shut. Conveniently ignoring that people who conduct themselves like that are really not the kind of people you want to get into business with. I was really keen on having the WC until I saw the extras that came along with it. The bill wasn't such a problem, it was that FIFA require that countries pass laws freeing them from paying tax, restricting free speech, making certain advertising illegal.

I dread to think what Pat would do if cycling were big enough.

"nom de plume idiots" - hey thats funny lol.

But I agree that Pat needs to realize that there are "nom de plume idiots" on twitter no matter what sport you are in. Cycling is no different in that regard.
Lighten up Pat.

Although it is probably uncommon in the higher echelon sports to see team owners entering the fray on twitter. Maybe see it in MMA or RollerDerby grrrr.

He's not selling. He's intimidating or, er, um, uh... intimating (yeah, that's the word I'm looking for... sorry, a product of the Californian education system here).

Default Lying liar who lies

This is stunning denial.

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/mcqu...armstrong-case

If guys are beating the system, they're beating WADA's system, they're beating the controls. The UCI can't do anything about that.


If I have this right, WADA recommends opening a case, the UCI is the one with the authority to open the case. And we now know thanks to the USADA letter, they don't.

The UCI has always been in the forefront in the fight against doping.

Their anti-doping record tells you all you need to know about their effectiveness.

Good for CN for asking the questions. If only other cycling media would step up.

Pity CN didn't go for the fat F***s jugular. He really needs to be gotten out of sport and probably society in general.
