UCI pounds Dick

This is the story:

https://www.velonews.com/news/fea/8926.0.html

"The Union Cycliste Internationale also said Monday that World Anti-Doping Agency chief Dick Pound was blocking its investigation by withholding information. UCI said Pound must be held accountable and "conduct of this type will not be tolerated."

Mr. Pound has always struck me as being a bit overly zealous. Certainly, WADA needs a person who is committed to perform the job, but not someone who will condone the agency operating outside of the rules. The athletes have rules that they must be held to. WADA needs to stick to their rules as well.

The problem is that Pound is not qualified for his job. He's a lawyer, not a Doctor or scientist. As a lawyer, he is highly trained in language manipulation (lying). But he knows nothing about the tests he is sacrificing careers over. He is a Dick.

"UCI pounds Dick"... Now there's a headline I'd love to see on the cover of Velo News!

Dick 'pounded' one of our top cricketers for taking a diuretic, apparently just to
de-puff his face before a TV appearance.

"language manipulation"....Clinton said that one, once, I recall..."I didn't lie, I just manipulated the language a bit..."
