Call me a cynic but TASS throwing some quote marks round some words doesn't mean they've actually been said.python said:what are you talking about, robert ? did you read your own article ?
the wada panel that traveled to moscow is saying they dont have any problems nor restrictions so far. under the 'news' you posted there is nothing to appeal yet.
to remind, in essence, the wada is interested in the moscow lab data base of the past years tests on russian athletes that might or might not shed light on the data base that rodchekov snicked out when he ran away. according to that rodchenkov's data many more were doping than the mc laren report covered.
there are only 2 simple scenarios here:
1. the russians managed to counterfeit the data while the delay was on.
2. there were real technical issues made public earlier (but of course never elucidated in western media) that made the delay an objective occurance. poor robert, was denied the opportunity to bot-link those reasons since the 'free and independent' media ignored them.
we just have to wait. if the russians faked and forged, i very much doubt it will go unnoticed and w/o the grave consequences for their sporting machine.
but presenting the story the way i just did just does not jive with the devils we all know they should be.
to balance out the transparent political bias and the irrelevance of the X number of adas demands, if reported as neutral news, it should have been mixing in that some high wada official already addressed the delay acceptability vs the results the wada is after that and the delay was in part wada's own fault being not fully prepared in december.
again, but such a reporting is making the predesignated villain less of a devil. unthinkable.
