Have to agreewitn you WP; the Boonen example is a poor one. Boonen at the time was facing criminal charges for his cocaine use, additionally many in the sport including the ASO were worried about him and wanted him to seek counselling and rehabilitation for what was generally accepted at the time that TB had a very bad alcohol problem which lead to cocaine use. The UCI did attempt to suspended him under the former rule of harming the image of the sport which didn’t come to much. Boonen eventually appealed to the French Olympic Committee for the ASO ban. The parallels between the Froome and Boonen cases are few and far between.Wiggo's Package said:OK, so the more I press you to back up your theories the more you slide awayfmk_RoI said:As you appear to be either unwilling or unable to read what I've written, we're going to deal with one thing at a time WP: which part of what I have already explained about the importance of the Astana and Boonen cases have you not understood? Do you require me to cut and paste what's already been posted? Do you expect me to repeat myself using different words? What is your problem here?Wiggo's Package said:Like I said, please indulge me. Explain with links/evidence how you're able to infer so much from the Boonen ruling if it that ruling is not in the public domain. Just imagine you're really clever and I'm really dumb. Shouldn't be hard from the tone of your posts so far
I've been very civil and patient with you so far WP, despite the ease and frequency with which you hurl the label fanboy at people you disagree with, which frequently includes me. If you want to ditch the civility and go back to name calling, can I politely suggest you pick a fight with someone else? Cause it bores the tits off me.
Btw "I've been very civil and patient with you so far" :lol: :lol:
I rest my case, your honour
