David Brailsford doubts need for 'truth and reconciliation' process (BBC Sports)
Did not read the link, sorry, but I bet it says "Look towards the future" "Past is past" "Evil era over" "blah blah blah"
But I think T&R is fantastic. The MORE T&R the better.
Give me a T! "T!"
Give me an R! "R!"
Whats that spell? "TR!"
Whats that spell!!? "TR!!"
I can't hear you! What!!!? "TR!!!!!!!"
Yes, the more T&R the better. I think they should invite anyone who has ever COMPLETED a TdF to the T&R session. And Vaughters too. Make a TdF completion TUE for Vaughters so he can come too.
+ Polish... I have not read a lotof things myself. But you already know what is going to be said without ever reading it.
We have some bright folks on this forum. They can speak eloquently regarding articles they have not read. I'll hold my tongue since the link I followed seemed to be talking about something else entirely.
"We have some bright folks on this forum. They can speak eloquently regarding articles they have not read. "
That's pretty much it. "Dumb and Dumber" got it totally wrong. Basically Sir DB said there have been plenty of confessions already so why not get started with the info they have. To me this implied that Sir DB wanted the digging to stop, "no need". So far his success story remains intact and he wants to leave it that way."You'd look sweet upon the seat, of a bicycle built for two!"
I've just read the BBC link. Incredibly, it does say, word for word, "'Look towards the future,' 'Past is past,' 'Evil era over,' 'blah blah blah.'" How did he do that?!
Elle, you are sly..."To be free and to live a free life - that is the most beautiful thing there is."
The word for word, "verbatim", article. I kept going back and forth trying to find what s-ly elle quoted. Then I realized. Ha Ha, made me look.... There is some BBC sports "analysis" in a side bar, but that weren't sir Dave... to think that so MUCH time could be wasted on SO little... Last thing in the world Sir Dave wants is for the press to clear all the Sky noise away and doggedly pursue the case of a certain Dutch Doping Doctor and his role in Team Sky's awesomeness. (sorry for the mixed metaphor SOL) The article actually makes it look like it was Paddy Mc's idea!
"Sir David Brailsford has questioned the need for a "truth and reconciliation" process in cycling after governing body the UCI suggested one is needed.
Pat McQuaid, president of the UCI, advocates a system persuading riders to come forward with information about doping without fear of retribution.
He believes it is the best way to examine doping in cycling in the past.
British cycling coach Brailsford said: "It is important you get the truth. But there is a law of diminishing returns."
He added: "Already I think there is a wealth of information that you can actually start taking action and putting tangible things in place - preventive measures if you like."
In November last year, the UCI set up a three-person independent commission (UCIIC), consisting of Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, former Court of Appeal judge Sir Philip Otton and Australian lawyer Malcolm Holmes, to investigate the Lance Armstrong affair.
The commission had asked the UCI for its own truth and reconciliation process to provide a full or partial amnesty for those testifying.
Initially, the UCI rejected an amnesty, leading to the withdrawal of Wada, the US anti-doping (Usada) agency and pressure group Change Cycling Now (CCN).
It later said it would give "necessary assurances to those coming forward" and a public procedural hearing was held on Friday to discuss the stand-off.
The hearing heard that the UCI had yet to release any documents to the independent commission, before it was adjourned until Thursday 31 January.
"It amazes me that we've had no documents whatsoever," Britain's 11-times Paralympic champion Baroness Grey-Thompson, told UCI counsel Ian Mill."
Are Brailsford and his team even eligible for T&R?
Or do they have to wait 5 or so years to spit in soup?
Maybe Brailsford will appreciate T&R in 2019...can spit all over 2012.

That's self-evident from the lack of proof reading in your posts!
