My comment , justifying my wish for change : “ Currently the “ UCI “ is being mismanaged by an Irishman who was “ Banned “ from competing at the Olympics through his ignoring IOC requirements in Sport ! The “ UCI “ are holding Elections in September 2013 , where he is seeking re-election . During recent times it has become apparent that there are question marks regarding his conduct and that of Top Management in the running of the “ UCI “ !
Not only Fee paying Athletes are placing information in the Court of Public Opinion BUT ALSO former members of the “ UCI “! When even colleagues of the Management are calling for change , there must be justification for an inquiry conducted by a third party , such as CAS , WADA or IOC ! The “ UCI “ is supposed to be a Union for the Cyclists but it is trying to be ALL THINGS to All the stakeholders !
When you have Presidents stating in Public that “ THEY DECIDE who will be sanctioned “ , it becomes obvious that there is NOT JUSTICE for ALL ! Truly the only way forward for the “ UCI “ is to take part in an “ AMNESTY FOR ALL SPORTS “ which should be conducted by a commission created by WADA & IOC ! With their Joint efforts they will be able to persuade National Governments to stand back to allow ALL Past & Present Athletes to come forward and reveal their “ Doping Conduct “ without the risk of “ Double Jeopardy “ !
In a two tier “ Amnesty “ they can reveal on the First tier , their misconduct and those associated with them and then the Second tier can be used by those of the Athlete’s team , who see that their principals has not sought “ Amnesty “ , will to preserve “ Their entitlement “ to “Amnesty “ , declare the circumstances that caused them to be at jeopardy . With the Athletes ( Past & Present ) knowing that they risk “ LIFE TIME BANS “ from ANY form of Sport Worldwide , there can be little doubt that they will act to use the first Tier entry to “ AMNESTY “!
Those being found out in the Second Tier , will not be able to avoid the “ Double Jeopardy “ and thus risk Government action as well as “ Life TIME BANS “! Their familieswill risk Jeopardy ALSO ! “ At the outset of the “ Paul Kimmage Defence Fund , “ I commented to the following site and have added tonight the following :
“ Journos being BULLIED BY the PRATS OF AIGLE does not sit well with me ! I am Skippy Mc Carthy and both PHAT & HEINOUS know me and in the past have been hospitable to me ! Should they treat me with less respect now then it will show their true colours ! YELLOW ! I URGE ALL to sign the petition , found here below :
“ Currently there are 1760+ contributing to the fund in excess of $54000 , a good start , which Paul has acknowledges in his Twitter feed . Whilst reading his tweets last night , I noted the following article :
I also noticed his reference to another person in the tweets , that I was aware of in the past years . Last year I had emailed Matt Hampson about “ Parrabuddy “ in connection with my desire to involve others in my attempts to get Para Athletes to the “ Giro & Le Tour “. Matt Hampson , now a member of the Paralympic Movement through a life style change and has perhaps been instrumental in helping many more people than he had in his former life style .
Here is the link to the story that Paul Kimmage was tweeting about :
With people in Southern Africa and Samoa being assisted by this foundation he helped create , the world is a better place . BRAVO Matt , you have started something that will surpass many other foundations and inspire ALL , World Wide !
