The decision today by WADA is a terrible miscarriage of justice. Probably Easily the worst in history.
When I said I hoped 2016 would be a ‘year of facts’, I was hoping they would be my facts, the ones that suit my worldview.
Unfortunately, WADA have chosen to look at all the facts, many which I have chosen to discount. I like to think it’s the facts I reject that make mine the best.
My facts have been hand selected, like I’m a ‘facts sommelier’, picking facts carefully and thoughtfully while discarding the ones I don’t like.
Being a facts sommelier gives you a far better outcome, a much more palatable one too.
WADA are like some ‘facts Dan Murphy’s’. Just every fact in the world under one roof, with no careful eye on which ones are completely unpalatable.
That’s why we’ve ended up with this result. Every fact has been sampled leaving a bad aftertaste. Like when teenagers make rocket fuel using whatever alcohol is in their parent’s cupboard. Sure, you get a result but it’s rarely a good one.
Is this the world we want to live in? Where unpalatable truths win over carefully crafted narratives?
It’s time to wake up.
The barbarians are at the gate and today we got a glimpse of what it will be like if they get inside.
