...For instance not allowing Greg Lemond to ask his questions at the Interbike press conference.
Greg Lemond was allowed to ask his questions. He even got to ask the first question. But in Greg Lemond style he had to be an a$$ about asking his questions...
One of the 'rules' of a press conference is that the journalists are allowed to be an ass, ask difficult questions and expect an answer. To push for the truth and not put up with PR bullcrap.
Often a public press conferences is the only space where people are able to question powerful, otherwise controlling figures. Who else is going to give Armstrong a hard time and push him on this issue? He won't agree to interviews with Kimmage or Walsh. He has a press blacklist. He changes the rules to suit himself.
it's sure fun to watch ignorant, nationalistic bigots cry about the fact that the world has developed enough that it's no longer easy to unfairly discriminate against people.
Why are you not jumping to the defence of Frank Schleck? Why did you quote a list of people 'supposedly' implicated in CERA use in the tour in the Frank Schleck thread? Do you not live in the world you describe in which it is 'no longer easy to unfairly discriminate against people'?
Given that inconsistency, it's almost
like you are just a nationalistic, flag waving Lance Armstrong fan who wants different rules applied to your poster boy. Almost
I, on the other hand just hate everyone who dopes, and hate the ones who deny doping even more. That's consistency. Admire the American Lemond for his balls, hate the European Ivan Basso for his lies.
