lots see that as a roid rage, I might have even jumped on that meme.Cookster15 said:Yeh, it was a worry but those incidents mean nothing in terms of Evans doping or not. Just means Evans is a prickly character when he is doing his job and under pressure. I think when the pressure is off Evans can be quite calm. I know people who were at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics who said Evans was one of the easiest people to talk to on the field at that time and very free with his time and words. By contrast there was an Australian gold medallist who shall remain nameless who was quite prickly and even arrogant towards their fellow Aussie team mates. These are personality traits not indications of possible doping.
but i think Cuddles is merely on the autism spectrum, v high functioning. And the stress and anxiety erupted. You never saw it with Armstrong, but leading the tour, in the yellow, the press conferences, the stress, Armstrong was the exception. Come on, (other) folks here, you could see this as quite NORMAL behaviour.
its really a confirmation bias. you see him as a doper, you will see it as roid rage.
i think cuddles did a little bit to get by, I dont even think he did blood bags or much epo. call me a fool you are welcome.
but these instances, Evans was a pacificist, the least aggressive person. He would not have been like Bobby Jullich and Jerome Bliejlevens or Tom Steel's bidon.
The Clinic tends to lose rigour, when rigour is what should be strived for, when all we usually have is circumstantial and indirect evidence, it is more important to achieve a rigour.
