good post 13.131313 said:This whole thing just confirms my "Moron of the Day" thread, but I think I need to expand it to "Moron of the Month". And guess what, a guy with a reasonable amount of education and an ability to string a few semi-coherent sentences together can still have pretty impaired cognitive function. This clown is a prime example.
That said, his "I don't know if Lance doped or not" comments jump the shark from stupid to downright insulting. Are we supposed to forget that his own director has admitted to everyone but the media that he was doping with Lance, and that several of his teammates are ex-postal guys? Seriously?? From all of his comments, he's a doping apologist of the highest order. I find it particularly ironic that he's so quick to point out "how far we've come", then call for the FDA's investigation to be the final word on the Lance issue. Newsflash: if the system were really working, we wouldn't be relying on government agencies to catch dopers.
Wearing big, stupid glasses doesn't make someone smart.
But was not Garmin supposed to be part of the solution, and working on the system. Why invoke the FDA as the arbiter of truth, they have no relationship to cycling, sport, UCI, IOC, and WADA besides some indirect supervision because of their legislative remit.
There are non-analytic positive rules in WADA and UCI. To invoke a non-negative sample, with a positive B, as the only arbiter of doping, is just being an apologist and enabler for doping.
Millar is a liar and a propagandist. Simple.
