Well, Paul, how about baseball in the 90s while all you guys in the media were looking the other way? And as far as baseball having solved its problems, has anybody seen Bartolo Colon pitch lately after his miracle "surgery"?
And don't get me going about the NFL? Is there anybody out there who seriously thinks most of these guys aren't doing PEDs? Have you ever seen what they look like.
Or how about Derrick Rose recently stating to ESPN that juicing was a huge problem in the NBA and now suddenly he can't remember his statement. Lets get serious.
Its easy to complain about cycling but does anybody really think American sports are any cleaner.
The key difference is the way that cyclists point the finger at each other. One gets caught, and immediately starts pointing to others. There was also quite a stink raised in France about American cyclists being "dirty." That is what I think Daugherty was talking about, not the fact that doping is any more rampant. I could be wrong, but thats my take. Its not about the drugs, its about the attitude.
