didn't read the petition?
You claim to not be moral police, but what is your basis for agreeing with the sentiment of the petition?
Probably something like, you think an injustice is occurring and you want it righted. It doesn't matter who it's against--Collins, SKN citizens, t&f fans, Moscow attendees--you think it's "wrong" for some reason, and that reason is likely a moral one.
In fact, if all the known facts are to be believed and it is believed also that those are ALL the facts, then your argument MUST be a moral one, because it appears that the federation has acted in accordance with applicable law and regulation, and well within the scope of their authority.
So, you might not want to be so quick in claiming that you're not judging in your moral capacity.
One other thing--it's amazing with recent doping revelations, that you think that information would surely have been released and a ban would surely have been instituted had Collins been doping, or had he been somehow associated with doping or with those connected to doping.
I have written MANY times on here, and for many years, that I believe that Collins could well be clean, and that I believe that he is--but even I would never claim to know all the facts, EVEN WHERE an athlete has returned positive test results, and EVEN WHERE an athlete has accepted sanctions.
Again, in your journalistic capacity, why don't you ask Collins, using open-ended questions, if he could elaborate on the relationship between himself and his federation, or if he could provide further details concerning his potential representation of SKN in Moscow?
It looks like everybody is against you on this one, including Collins' biggest fan--me.
