This is what I love. Someone can say that something will happen, like say that RCS will whack Froome over the head with the disrepute clause, at the eleventh hour too, so he won't have time to appeal. And then when that doesn't happen they can say well that's cause RCS didn't want to, they're actually happy having Froome in the race, especially with the top secret deal done with Lappartient that Vegni blabbed about. (But, of course, Vegni did want to give Froome a one day pass to use his motor on the Zoncolan, but he wouldn't let Poels have one, just look at the way the Dutchman's legs weren't egg-whisking up the climb.) So now we've got ASO having the magical ability to stop Froome winning, like they've stopped oh, I don't know, no one winning in the past (with the exception of LA, who they stopped getting to eight by making him retire, and Merckx in 75 when they ordered that fan to punch his lights out, and Delgado in 89 when they had him tied and bound in the boot of a car right when he should have been starting the prologue) and if that doesn't actually happen and - God forbid - the salbutamol thing is still unresolved and Froome actually wins the bloody Tour, the argument will be that, well, actually, ASO didn't really try. They didn't send their ninja mechanics in at midnight to add iron filings to his bottom bracket or Prudhomme just couldn't bring himself to order his driver to force Froome off the road in the neutral zone, or whatever bit of nonsense you want to make up for yourself.Benotti69 said:fmk_RoI said:They did such a good job stopping LA get to seven.Benotti69 said:
I didn't notice they were trying.
But i did notice he didn't win 8.
