What Are They Thinking? wrote:
Kind of odd to me that the CEO originally said, way back in his July blog on the investigation, that "SKINS will publish (the professors') report and our response to it, including any action we take, by the end of September."
However, they are apparently letting the report come out on its own without any skins' comment. In fact, RY's picture and profile are still on skins' website as a sponsored athlete, so they are certainly playing things pretty close to the vest at the moment.
Really thought that they would issue their own response more or less simultaneously with the report, but I guess that they will allow the report to percolate for a while, then respond based on public reaction? Or are there legalities where they have to allow the report to circulate, then respond? Or maybe they're doing this to emphasize the report's impartiality?
SKINS CEO is on a plane, and will land in Australia early Sunday. He didn't want to release a statement, and then be MIA for 24 hours. The embargo is scheduled to be lifted once he lands and is available for comment/questions. Seems fair to me.
