Well, they're being put in "garde a vue" by the French police which means being locked in a cell with hardly anywhere to sit, no food, water, sleep impossible, and incessant accusatory questioning and threatening harassment by the police, all this without having the right to a lawyer for the first 72 hours. Flogging might be preferable, at least that way everyone can observe the injustice.the_dude said:dopers should be subject to public flogging. and if you're going to dope, for dog's sake, don't win the damned stage.
Yes, if the test they're using has just a couple of percent chance of a false positive, then it is quite likely that a false positive will occur in the 5 or so tests Ricco has had since the start of the race.philippec said:wholly predictable.......
They should be forced to complete a stage with their jersey replaced with a "I'm a cheater and love it!" on front and back. If they start going slow to try to abandon, have the race director's car follow from behind, giving a whipping when necessary.the_dude said:dopers should be subject to public flogging. and if you're going to dope, for dog's sake, don't win the damned stage.
