for the record, i was only meaning to doubt the ingenuousness of your stated belief that the spanish ruling wouldn't be appealed by the UCI. despite what you may believe about the integrity of the case against contador, which you obviously feel strongly about, i think it's glaringly obvious that the UCI are at least likely to appeal it. i can't believe you can't see that.
With repect, I think you may have a misunderstanding, sir.
My quote was
Still have difficulty seeing either WADA or UCI (severely or jointly) coming up with anything new to sway
the CAS, into accepting an appeal, (and if they do) to convince the CAS to uphold their appeal.
So I did actually consider an appeal... so I think it's glaringly obvious that I did see that.
... the case against contador, which you obviously feel strongly about...
I don't feel that strongly about it, but I have been willing to see there is a possibility that he is innocent.
I am sure that I am not the only one, amongst the 10,000+ odd members, here,
but I seem to be the only one that willing oppose the "the in group" line on Contador,
and accept flaming, ridicule, personnal attack etc.
Any other person, with my belief, is not getting involved, and not willing put up with the agro,
or so it would seem.
It happens often here with "the in group" and Christopher must be well aware of it, possibly, accepts it.
Sorry we have had this misunderstanding.
