If the main aim is to win the TDF with CF and if they think Wiggins would put that a risk in some way why would they take him ? If they just want to take Wiggins for PR then something is wrong, it's about winning the race at the end of the day, not what the BBC thinks.
I don't think it would blow over quickly. Wiggins is not the type to STFU if he isn't in the team.
In terms of the sporting decision, it makes a heck of a lot of sense to have Wiggins on board. Froome could fall and break his collarbone on the cobbles, whilst wiggo might be sitting on top of GC at that point.
I think this is what the Froome revelations are about. It's Froome's powerplay. "Look, I told you that SKY/Brailsford?WIggins are duplicitous".
Myself, I don't like SKY. Refuse to have the brand in my house. I refused to join my pals out taking photos of the recce this week. I have a fairly dispassionate view. To me, Froome is doing a good job of looking like even more of a tw@ than Wiggins.
