They talk of cheating liars, but it's OK for cheating liars to lie about the cheating.
Cheating liars who continue to cheat and lie are great and worthy of fanship.
Ex-cheats who try to tell the truth are rats, but are probably ratting untruthfully, because they used to be cheating liars.
Cheating liars who change are rats and worthy of hate.
By the way some of these douches talk about rats you would think they were in the mafia. What normal, well adjusted member of society even uses the term "rat"? The problem cycling has with omerta is as much the fault of this kind of thinking by the fans as it is the actions of the pros. Thinking like this encourages the sport to continue with the "bad apples" approach to doping instead of dealing with the situation honestly because there are people dumb enough to not only believe the lies but to promote the lies.
