So on my run today, I was thinking about Centro's switch to the Bowerman Track Club and suddenty I had a revelation. Does this move mean that Rupp might actually be clean?
Rupp? Yes, I mant to type Rupp and not Centro.
Hear me out.
We all know that Jerry and Alberto do not get along mainly because Jerry thinks Alberto is shady as heck and wants no part of a doping program. I -like Jerry probably does - just assumed the group is dirty.
But if the NOP group is dirty, why in the heck would Jerry accept Centro? He would either end up tarnishing Jerry with a positive test or if he got clean it would tarnish Jerry's image as Centro would be no good.
So in my mind, Centro to the BTC definitely means that Jerry thinks Centro is clean.
And if Centro is clean then does that mean the whole group is clean?
That seems like a real possibility.
What are the other alternatives. Could it be possible that only the innermost or key most members are dirty (Rupp/Farah) while other (Kara/Centro) are clean? That's something I've never understood.
