Your thoughts on the link from my quote ??
Not sure if your "trolling" to have another cheap shot, but I will respond honestly with my thoughts.
From reading the Sports24 interview, the linked reporter seems to have taken some liberties.
Professor Gerard Dine seemed more concerned with the whole organization of decision-making
powers of the "anti-doping" process and stated they should be reviewed.
He stated "I've always said that regulation should be under the guise of an independent sports authority, independent of economic power and independent of political powers. WADA which is ultimately a pharmacy organization, does not have the power to do that."
The reference to the plasticiser
(re:According to The New York Times and Lâ€™Equipe newspapers last October
... and that was a reference to a "disclosure" on a German TV program, which was never substantiated)
in the interview, was an editor's note, and Professor Gerard Dine was not responding to that question.
So once again, read between the lines, and it all becomes clear. Creative journalism, at it's best.
Go read the Sports24 interview, then see how the "journo" at cyclingnews, selected a statement,
added some editorial of his own... and come up with his own sensationalist article.
It so transparent, and happening so often, and hasn't made one ounce of difference to the outcome.
Will agree with Professor Gerard Dine that the whole organization and the "anti-doping" process
has a lot of problems, including the analytical process... and the whole thing needs an overhaul.
Threshold limits need to be set, on all banned substances, in the process... as I have already said.
Just my opinion, DYOR.
