This is not the issue. If the UCI were even-handed about handing out doping suspensions to begin with, then I'd be more sympathetic to this as an issue.weeniebeenie said:I think that's the main problem. I would be angry if I was serving a lengthy ban for doping, but then a T&R commission is set up and everyone else escapes with 6 months.
Interesting. I'm convinced the T&R concept is the Vrijman Report they didn't get with the IC. That's the effort, not a fair accounting. As much as Hein is still selling the Wonderboy myth, it wouldn't surprise me to read that becomes an extra bonus to the Vrijman Report.weeniebeenie said:However, I don't know how you get around it unless you agree to significantly reduce lengthy bans that are currently being served in the event that the people serving them agree to provide a full confession to the T&R commission. This would obviously include Armstrong and Ricco.
It sounds like WADA is giving the UCI no quarter. Ideally, the media sees through the UCI's clever attempt to shift blame by following WADA's lead and reports it as that.
