Hein is totally corrupt, and a bit incompetent. He actually seems to like doped cycling.hektoren said:I'm tired of all the nay-sayers, all the conspiration-theorists in here. It's not that I can´t, sort of, understand their rationale, I mean, there's been plenty of collusion, doping, hidden forces, enablers, dirty doctors, that's a given, but come on, take five, read the statements from Phat McQuack over the last few years, and what you'll be able to take away from it is a guy who obviously hasn't got the greatest PR-department, frequently has predecessors' statements getting in his way, but all in all is a positive force against doping.
I admit, there's been a lot of bad, not-quite-thought-through statements. There's been, of lateley, the WADA-UCI spat about the TRC, which will be resolved, but c'mon, the BAD guy here is Verbruggen, not Pat McQuaid. Clean cycling really has moved forward under his rule. I don't like to admit it, but it really has done so.
Now, call me naive (which BTW is the exact opposite of all Evian-comsumers worldwide), but I really believe there're parts of Pat that wants to go about the upcoming process in a decent way, sod all previous allegiances, and he may yet be the central star in a TRC we'll find just, in-time, and as well as looking backwards will be looking towards the great future that is in store for cycling at large.
Pat is a totally incompetent, and a bit corrupt. Don't actually think he likes doped cycling, but not overly motivated to fix it.
There is a moral difference between the two, but they both still should go. Problem may be that HV virtually invented UCI if i recall correctly - large inbuilt difficulty in getting rid; he's built it around himself.
