I don't think Sky or Mo cheated but they pushed the boundaries of the rules to the point of absurdity.

The Tory Lord Seb though is a different matter.

Very little evidence in this so called report. And the day any MP can legitimately lecture anyone on ethics is the day hell freezes over.

It's the same as tax avoidance, if it's legal - meh. If they don't want it to happen, change the rules.

 


Optimistic as ever

Totally agree Jimmy Carr got slaughtered for obeying the tax laws. The police can't nick you for being under the speed limit but "morally you were speeding". If politicians don't like the laws then change them. As to Sky this committee has turned justice on its head. Apparently it is now up to Sky to prove they are innocent and that there was nothing illegal in the jiffy bag. I thought it was up to the accusers to prove wrong doing and beyond the slurs there doesn't appear to be much evidence.

They tried to have a go at the Queen for having investments in places where she is the head of state, that's how absurd they are when they knives come out for someone, anyone, else.

You say that about the police but I had an encounter recently where a car pulled in front of me from a lane meant to go straight on, while I was in a filter lane to turn, and then proceeded to not pay attention to the road missing about 3 opportunities to sod off. After I beeped him he then decides it's a good idea to watch me in his mirror, instead of getting on with it, and then drives at a snail's pace with me obviously right behind him. When the road clears I overtake him and carry on my way, only for him to come steaming up behind me while i'm waiting at the end of another road to turn. Fully locked his brakes and nearly stacks in to the back of me, then gets out flashing his badge while walking up to my car saying "I could have you done for driving without due care for driving that close" to which I replied, "I could have you done for abusing your badge and having ideas above your station, so sod off". And he did.

I'm sure that they are all within the laws of their sports even if they have probably pushed the boundaries.

You can't do away with TUEs as some athletes need them and the sport would be worse off without these big names. You need to trust the bodies that run the sport, and Wada, that they are only giving out TUEs for genuine needs.

 


It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.

He a professional runner. He gets paid to attend races, just like a tennis player gets paid to play tennis. A marathon will get increased publicity if he is running, which is why they pay him.

The same reason that Woods or McIlroy get more for turning up in the middle east, than the winner of the event probably does.

Good luck to him I say, I don't understand your bitterness. He sacrificed so much to build a legacy for himself and got to cash in a little at the end. If the organisers saw fit to pay him that much, take the money.

 


Vive le Roy!

ooooooooooooooooops ! Makes you proud of the honours system, with sir chris, sir mo and lord sebastian!

Ahahahah did anyone ever think they were clean. Even in interviews they are all admitting it. Then they all knock the Russians.

You can't make it up.

Wonder how many footballers suffer from asthma.

Amazing how many pro sportsmen suffer from it.

In the old days asthma would have assured no chance in pro sport

Ahahahahahah

Even though I have just posted I agree with this angle too.

But they are ALL having a laugh at our expense. Bradders claims he didn't know what he was taking. Pleeeeeaase.

Sir Bradley did not take any medecines without the authorisation of WADA the world anti drug authority.
