    I think you're missing my point, I'm not implying anyone has been paid off, rather the people who hand out the bans might not be objective when deciding the length of a ban when taking into account the fighters worth.

    Look up the recent Nate Diaz case in the UFC, very similar in some ways, but two very different outcomes...

    Yeah but my point is specifically about UKAD and Whyte, I mean we have to look at the cards on the table right? Every scandal in history is different... yes it is a scandal... but they mechansims and circumstances, especially the motivation... is always different.

    Diaz and USADA are different organisations, I don't think USADA have an independent panel like UKAD and NADP. They handle results differently.

    So I am just speaking about Whyte, how UKAD handle results, how many people involved, and how much money can be used for bribes, and then the risks involved for every person if caught with bribes.

    Whyte isn't a megastar, he has made a nice buck... before tax and expenses

    Aydamn, you are the one who started throwing insults talking about research and calling me a liar. Once again it looks like its you projecting onto other people. You talk yourself up as all knowing, but all you are is a 1st page google copy and paste. Its cool, i understand your insecurities of being wrong on a forum, you have already alluded to that in a previous post.

    You can argue your opinion all you want, fair enough, but dont throw insults around about 'liars' and 'research' when you dont even know yourself.

    My friend I appreciate this must be annoying for you as a Whyte fan, but seriously - if what anonymous posters think about Whyte's PED issues bother you this much - you need to get out more.

    You are right Furious.

    I’ll be taking annual leave to calm down a bit and see life beyond the forum.

    I won’t be commenting on anything Whyte related for one month and you can hold me to it.

    I think having different opinions is fine, I just think you should reign it in a bit. You don't gain anything from it on here as people will always have their views.

    He doesn't gain anything because he's trying to defend the indefensible

    Right is right and wrong is wrong.

    Our Adyam aka Inferno is trying to twist those two principles around in order to justify Whyte cheating and risking Rivas life in the process.

    I didn't say anything about silence and your point about confidentiality ended when this became a public matter reported by in the press by a highly respected journalist. I realise you have been pushing an agenda to justify your own arguments in this matter. The fact remains that this case has damaged significantly the reputation of UKAD and the BBBOC.

    You state that investigations are very involved yets a decision was taken with little or no investigation despite the governing and testing bodies being aware of an adverse finding in Whyte's test that was suggestive of possible misuse of prohibited substances.

    If resolving this matter is not about corruption then it is about incompetence on the part of the governing and testing bodies. It has been a missed opportunity by these bodies to show how open and fair their procedures are and avoid the damaging the sport further.
