Well, it varies a lot between people it seems. While there are a certain group of people who do think that doping is a very bad thing there are also a lot of people who seem almost treat it like someone got caught in a white lie.Arnout said:I think the social price is already high. All past results of the riders, not only the ones that he obtained while doping (that is, the one he got busted for) are regarded as doping results and all future results will be suspicious as well.
Ricco is one of the worst examples around. While he was still suspended he was signed by Ceramica Flaminia, was part of their team presentation and was hailed as a champion on their website. It's the attitude of the people responsible for that at Ceramica Flaminia that I have difficulty tolerating. And it's not like it's an uncommon attitude.
