15 February 2013 - 04:50 PMamnesty is a great idea, if done at the right time, and by the right people for the right reason, Once the UCI is hung out to dry and the new team of leadership is in place. Not so that the governing body can get everyone to stop looking to protect themselves.
and when the majority of the guilty parties have been caught and penalized at least some.
05 February 2013 - 08:30 PMI agree and disagree. Yes the complicit nature of the governing body has helped dismantle cycling credibility but the much bigger issue is the perception that all of cyclist are dirty. Where in baseball it is more a select few with so many still perceived to be clean. Outside of these walls most casual fans believe that Lance, all his teammates, everyone else who has won and by proxy all of their teammates are all guilty of cheating. Football, and Baseball of had a select few, they got caught and punished (again in the eyes of the public). Same with Olympic sports.
Have you watched a hockey game, tell me they would not benefit from EPO? Soccer? Basketball? I am not saying they are doing it but I do not think A-Rod is the only guy in his declining years who has mentally struggled with fan disenfranchise and decided there is another way to keep his reputation as a great player by crossing the line.
I do think Cycling has been more aggressive with testing. something tells me Bio Passports in other sports may show a different side to them. Even Lance who hatted them said they did change the tide.
05 February 2013 - 05:02 PMI agree on Tennis, look at Nadal's wind after 4 hour match (longer then typical marathon run) and Soccer seems to never get scrutinized. Do they have testing in those sports?
04 February 2013 - 04:37 PMCycling could use a scandal of magnitude in another major sport to make it look less like the Dirty Bunch. I believe lots of other sports could get nailed if someone went looking, Soccer and Tennis being at the top of the list.
04 February 2013 - 04:33 PMwho is the next big polarizing figure in Cycling? is there anyone?
