i was going to make the second point that you made but thought better of it. Enough posters have already pointed out to velocity he is in a minority with his views and left him to them. But well done for your post. Well made.DirtyWorks said:You keep going around and around on this with nothing gained.
1. There's just no way to define the tipping point. You have the luxury of 20/20 hindsight to call the tipping point. I see this so often and it's a fatal assumption. It's as if history happens in a safe continuum. It doesn't. If not a Festina, then some other team would have finally gotten busted. And then, you would have the same false confidence only using a different team as the tipping point. That's not how life works.
2. Again, you are ascribing a feature 'anti-doping crusader' to Bassons that he may not agree with and I certainly don't. You completely ignore Armstrong's role in Basson's promotion to your 'anti-doping crusader' pedestal. If Armstrong did/said nothing, the story likely would have evaporated in chaos in this forum. Bam! no more pedestal.
See you on page 23 when you are still trying to make a point that is not valid.
There is no way Bassons considers himself an anti doping crusader.
