I thought this was a really interesting blog post from Tom Zirbel that brings some very valid points about the way doping cases are handled by the UCI and different national governing bodies.
Many of these cases seem black and white when you are just given a small amount of information. But when the whole picture is revealed it shows the infinite shades of gray in between.
To have a set of rules that are so absolutely cut and dry. It creates a far greater chance of innocent people falling through the cracks. Than if we go on a case by case basis and allow the experts on both sides to hash it out and come up with a rational decision. That's how I see it anyway.
