First of all, I didn't ask you, I asked him. Secondly, as I'm sure will come as no surprise to you, I don't care what you think. And thirdly, your analogy is silly: I neither said, nor implied, that if one was a fan of a person ultimately found to have juiced, that makes one a juicer. The point, which, I mistakenly though was obvious, was we have been down this head-in-the-sand despite considerable circumstantial evidence before, in the aforementioned cases, so the "no proof, no story" line is not only unimpressive, it's wrong: he may WISH there is no story, but wishing doesn't make it so.
