Basement dwellers, we need to once again raise our pitch forks. Just look at what Jaimie Fuller and The Guardian are writing about us:
There are a couple of points worth making here. While the results were greeted with glee by much of the ultra-running community, the Skins chief executive, Jamie Fuller, said he was worried about the abuse Young was getting. â€œThe findings are clear and we absolutely accept them,â€ said Fuller, who has ended the sponsorship deal. â€œBut we must remember that beyond being a runner heâ€™s a human being. In my view his background means there are special circumstances.â€
Only the stone-hearted would dispute that. Young has suffered enough cruelty in his life and, though he has been the author of his own misfortunes here, there is no need for others to glory in them. While cheating is cheating, the only person Young has destroyed is himself. There were no rivals on the road to cheat out of medals.
They are still assuming that everything Rob Young has said and wrote about his childhood is still true even though we have a mountain of evidence showing holes in his stories and that infamous picture of Rob sealing himself up in a suitcase for comedy. They are calling us "stone-hearted" when in reality they should be calling themselves dumb and gullible.
