More juicy than that53*11 said:even more TUEs?Wiggo's Package said:Sutton is playing is hand beautifully. Every time he speaks out in defence of Wiggo and Brailsfraud he digs them further in a hole :lol:thehog said:Sutton was touting the Jiffy bag story around twitter before it got to Lawton. Lawton swapped the story out from a piece on Shane to Wiggins. Nice deal.Wiggo's Package said:Walsh in yesterday's Sunday Times:
- An "I wanted to believe" mea culpa about his blind faith (such a useful trait in a journalist!) in Brailsfraud, Wiggo and Team Sky. Still no criticism of the Dawg. Just an observation that he and Brailsfraud are now closer than they've ever been. Poor David just can't join those final dots...
- Brit team doctor David Hulse who was opposed to "overloading riders with medication" was sacked after the duff 2010 season and given the usual payoff in return for signing an NDA, in came Leinders and Bartolucci to teach Freeman the dark arts (echoes of Prentice Steffen being kicked out of US Postal and replaced by those nice Spanish doctors). In 2013 Sky's sidelined Brit doctors Farrell, Baynes and Usher "ganged up" on Freeman to stop him getting a fourth TUE for Wiggo ahead of the 2013 Tour of Britain. They insisted on a change of team policy so two Sky doctors had to approve Sky's TUE applications. Freeman scuttled off to the all conquering Team GB track squad...
- Team Sky insiders believe Shane Sutton is the source for Lawton's jiffybag story (no *** Sherlock!). However, no one on the team dares to publicly criticise Sutton as they fear Sutton has provided a witness statement to Lawton stating it was triamcinolene in the jiffybag. Sky insiders say Sutton is a "brilliant coach and a loose cannon" and now the cannon is turned on them. Walsh says "in time the truth will emerge"
And there is some mind-blowing stuff about Sutton, Sky and BC which is not yet in the public domain. The only reason Brailsfraud is clinging on in the face of huge pressure to resign is that he knows that, notwithstanding everything that's already in the public domain, things could get much, much worse
