In the ealry years of previous decade after Armstrong got exposed and Contador busted, there was a real and quite widespread hope for serious cleaning up of the sport among the fanbase including members of this forum. However unjustified and naive that hope may look in hindsight, it was very clearly present back then, both within the confines of this forum and the wider cycling world.the forum Clinic, we know it, has lost some of its verve
imagine if Sky had won the previous year TDF, Gran Camino, Omloop, Kuurne, Tirreno, Catalunya, E3, GW, Dwars.
back in 2015-16 the forum would have crashed
The rise of Sky and specially the way they managed to turn riders who to many looked like (road) donkies into dominant Tour winners quashed these hopes and illusions for good. Regardless of how justified those impressions were, they caused Sky being seen as a destroyer of hopes and dreams, the ones who dragged the sport back into the ugly days of past . There weren't these kind of hopes and emotions running high prior to the rise of Jumbo-Visma anymore and as a consequence the backlash to their ensuing domination has been lot more subdued and less emotional, both in this forum and outside it.
There are other factors that play a role in the difference of treatment Sky and Jumbo-Visma have got, but state of the cycling world and difference in expectations people inside it had prior to the onset of their respective domination periods is for me by far the most important one.
