i see what you mean. but be aware that it is implicit in your statement that, if tennis and football players screw with their bodies and take the fans for fools, you want cyclists to do the same.andy1234 said:And to put this into the context it was written in....
This is purely a statement about how the press cover cycling, not doping in general.
The fight against doping is absolutely necessary and doping should NOT be swept inder the carpet.
However, as long as the media reports on other, equally dirty sports, without reference to doping, I would be happy for cycling to be treated the same.
you're also forgetting that there is a reason (in fact multiple reasons) why the press focuses more on cycling then on e.g. football when it comes to doping.
