hmmm, interesting choice of words which I shall blame to the regular MariaV program entitled: "sucking up to a swiss Fedtard".

----

What bothers me about this entire thing is the hypocrisy of sports journalism in all of this: until a couple of years ago, they were still swooning over Lance as the perfect athlete: the intelligent, hard-working ultimate professional.
I'm thinking about one particular journalist who wrote a book about the hero Lance (so, he earned quite a bit of money from it) and now, he claims that he knew a long time ago (since 2000 or so) that Lance was doping.
FFS, how do you combine your hero book with knowing he was doping?

Talking of those hero books: In a library in Australia, they were wondering what to do with all those Lance Armstrong hero books. They came up with a funny solution IMO: they moved all those books to the "fiction" section of the library.

Edit to add picture posted in non-tennis (by riboy)


So, after having turned him into a hero, claiming that Lance would never sink as deep as Virenque, Pantani & co but Lance achieved what he achieved due to hard work and sheer talent....yadda, yadda, yadda....many of those sports journalist are doing a massive U-turn on him.
They just go where the money goes: before, the "hero story" sold books, articles, t-shirts, bracelets,... now, the "cheating bastard" story sells articles and will sell books, movies, tv interviews,...
Not that I'm surprised by that U-turn but there's just too much hypocrisy on either side in this particular story. I guess the only explanation is that so many people really wanted to believe in the hero Lance story. It was easier to just push Pantani & co aside as villains.
Integrity doesn't come into it. "Show me the money" is more like it.

Many of those sports journalists were a whole lot more lenient towards Lance because of him being a cancer survivor, which he also used. In his interview, he talks about his life-time ban as having received the "death penalty".
--> Talk to Marco Pantano and Frank Vandenbroucke, dude. Compared with them, you're still being treated like royalty.

Does this really surprise you, Hilde? It's all about money these days, journalists are no exception. And sports is only business these days.

OK as no rich Swiss here has taken the bate I'll go back to work!

Not the fact that they're all mainly focusing on the money is a surprise to me but the fact that many of them made a massive U-turn for all to see and yet, not a lot of people actually seem to notice it because your memory has to go back further than 5 seconds ago to spot the

Well there's no surprise about yet another umpire helping a top player. I mean they let Nadal/Djokovic get away with their time wasting for years. The top guns are the money makers after all

Hiii I'm good. I sought the opinion of my (very honest) linesman evaluator friend on the whole situation from last night and he can't understand what everyone is whinging about. So I know who's opinion I care about

Also he told me that if you want to really rile up Pascal Maria you have to ask him if he wants some Australian Champagne.. I dared him to call it out tonight as he's working in RLA but he declined

All those hatas here, they have no clue whatsoever. And like the players never make errors, how many chances Wawa had to get the 2 sets to 0 lead and in the 5th.... was a break up and at 4-4 had 3 BPs before "that one".

Also another Enric story. That same friend was eating his lunch yesterday and Enric was at the same table. Enric apparently mentioned that he hadn't seen him for a few days and my friend said "I was at your match yesterday! I was sitting with your number 1 fan"
Enric asked who that was and he said "You know, Peta. You chatted to her on the tram the other day" and Enric was all "Ohhhh Peta, yes her" hahahaha Just a little embarrassed
