Is running without your bike legal? If you have to run and get a new bike should you take back to the point you came off your old bike and start from there?

A very watered down Pom then in my opinion. My opinion only. Then again, most countries will cling to anything where success is involved.

Dual nationality is a horse's ass. You are from where you were born in my opinion, but I don't make the rules I guess!

For me, parentage is far more important than the location of birth. Being born in England doesn't even guarantee you a passport. You have to be born in England to parents with the right of abode in England to get one.

Froome has an English father and that's perfectly English in my mind. He was entitled to a British passport at birth, so again - that's good enough for me.
Is he still English, now that he has been "caught out"? :wink:

I note the inverted commas.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

Not much different to the headache tablet excuse, surely?

From what I read, he has asthma and he took a legal asthma medication. It appears he may have taken too much of the inhaler.

Sounds even less of an issue than you claimed essendon were guilty of as he also took it under doctors orders. Will see what the authorities make of it
