This is a good post. Thanks.tellywatcher said:My position and a question for all the fence sitters out there.
Sky - undecided whether there is team involvement in doping, not convinced they are being as transparent as they could be, which just creates suspicion
Wiggins - I actually like his personality so I hope he is clean but wouldn't fall off my chair if he wasn't , I don't find his transformation to a GC rider that unbelievable
Froome - I wish I could time travel 20 years to the future, just to know! I would fall off my chair if he turned out clean.
The question - what would it take to convince you of guilt?
For me, without a positive test, it would only be confessions from teammates or coaches, or a team employee being caught with a bag full of EPO. Analysis of performance will only ever get me 50% convinced, but an accumulation of evidence does have some merits, no?
It's an interesting question, one I've wondered about myself. I think it's impossible to say ( in that so much of how and when someone gets convinced of something is based on feeling not logic), but I think for me it really needs some credible rumours from within the team starting to bubble up through the media, or something similar. Apparently Braiosford is nicknamed Mugabe, and yet despite this you never hear bitter ex teammates telling tales. It will be very interesting what happens with JTL over the next couple of years. . .
