I wholeheartedly agree, that's why I said the EU as it is.

The freedom of trade and movement the EU has implemented is the cornerstone on which Europe has the potential to unite and progress.

But, as I said in other threads, I believe the whole problem about the European project is that it has largely been done top-down, instead of bottom-up. That is why the whole EU bureaucracy has to be thrown into the bin. The EU needs structural reforms, and it needs them now.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
