I am, you are, we all are as we make individual decisions to dope or to follow/support/fund professional sports which provide incentive to dope with varying levels of tolerance of and activism against cheating, as the case may be. We can choose to boycott a la the German media and the races and hence doping will have to stop. Blaming the system is a cop out - we are the system.Sanitiser said:Most of us agree that doping occurs because of the 'system' but in the end who is the most to blame?
I think that's what he means too.on3m@n@rmy said:I think he means doping in cycling.
p.s.- i didn't vote for the same reason as mombus
clearly, an individual rider can't change d1cksh1t. Nor can one Team, one Teamdoctor, one Sponsor, let alone one fan, etc.Ferminal said:I think that's what he means too.
But there's no one to blame for cheating in professional sports, it's just what happens and will happen forever.
The more important question is who is to blame for cycling being in the state it is in, but like you say, it's far too complex to answer with one vote in a stupid poll.
I was very much in doubt. I leaned towards the UCI but ended up voting for the DS. UCI is probably most responsible, but I was going with the thought, ex dopers needs to be kicked out of the sport in order to clean up properlySanitiser said:Most of us agree that doping occurs because of the 'system' but in the end who is the most to blame?
LOL. D1cksh1t on docks, or anywhere for that matter, is a fine thing to want to change... dang slippery. If d1cksh1t could be changed, sandpaper would be better but I'd feel sorry for the ducks.sniper said:clearly, an individual rider can't change d1cksh1t.

The UCI, on the other hand, would have the power to bring about change, by means of serious testing, and serious banning.
So no change = UCI to blame principally (not exclusively).
