He’s always had issues with Patrick Lefevere. He can’t help himself.He has said a lot... by saying nothing. Thijs is usually the first to sprint towards his phone or computer at the slightest inconvenience, and now there's crickets. He always looked more like a PR-machine for Dumoulin, but with the development of Jumbo's programme over the last few years, it would seem he has shifted his focus toward them. The most compelling thing he has expressed about this incident is that ''Groenewegens actions are perhaps over the line, I think'', only to write this abomination of an article last night, in which he defends Groenewegen, somehow? You can tell he is scared shitless of having to express critique, otherwise he'd maybe lose a source, lose a quote or perhaps lose someone to have on his podcast. You just know he'd scream for someone to be hanged if, say, Andrea Vendrame was yesterday's culprit. No credibility whatsoever.
I always find it odd that journalists and other people not directly involved with a situation need to judge emotional reactions of those that are involved. Whether it’s a race situation or something horrible like this. Imagine being a bystander and witnessing a friend seeing his friend being pushed (by accident) down a mountain. The guy screams what a criminal he is being in shock of what just happened and you just tell him in front of everyone who witnessed it that it’s wrong for him to say that.
Like i said he can’t stand PL and he couldn’t help himself.
