Past has made Doubting Thomases of us all but kneejerk criticism of sceptics doesn't help
Every time we sit down to watch sport, either in person or on television, we bring to it our own unique collection of experiences.
We are fan or rival; occasionally we're an honest broker without emotion beyond looking for a transcendent experience; sometimes we are sceptic or lover, then again a full-throated supporter and then there are the howling ghouls who seem only to be there to hate. That's just a small part of the fan experience.
Cycling this past three weeks has had all in full view and occasionally it felt as if the press coverage was mirroring the fans on the road. Which is a problem.
