Life's tough. It's tougher when you're stupid.
In order of seriousness and moral culpability: 1) Doping2) Getting caught3) Denying it4) Attempting to shame people who disbelieve your denial. 5) Getting caught again after hitting stages 1-4. The more serious the screwup here the less patience I have for the offender. I wouldn't really care about Tyler and his f***ups had it not been for the whole "how dare you disbelieve me" routine. You need to read the article in Bicycling from last year by the guy who rode with him in college. Tyler and his family basically tried to bully the guy into writing an advocacy piece. If I was him I'd have sent a telegram a couple weeks ago telling Tyler's old man to eat s***. Doping used to be "everybody's doing it." UCI and WADA only made a pretense of caring. The real rule, the one that actually got applied (as opposed to the written one) was "don't be indiscreet and get caught." The unwritten rules have changed and they are probably tougher than the written ones are now. Break 'em at your own risk. And I will note that it's not black and white all the time - though it often enough is.
He's just a spoilt little kid. Someone needs to give him a conscience transfusion....word verification: frump...google made me cry. The big meany.
