So go watch the soccer and boycott the TdF, that way you will be able to feel that you are taking a stand.
Like me boycotting the TdF can make a difference anyway. Well, when I watched the Giro last year I just switched off. I stopped watching the Tour religiously a long time ago.
All the BS, the lying, the cheating, the dissembling that extends throughout cycling makes me think: why bother?
Then someone like Brad comes along, and for years is very vocal about the problems, someone who makes you think, yeah things might change if people like that talk about it bravely. (Because for sure nothing will happen if everyone shuts up again.) And then gradually, he stops talking about doping and starts playing the game. That's disappointed me.
Brad's not stupid, if he's reading what I'm saying I'm sure he wont treat it with contempt, he'll know where I'm coming from. He's a pro cyclist, who has stated in the past he hated doping. I'm sure he knows the score, as much as he says he doesn't in his recent interviews.
And I'll watch what I want when I want, thanks.
