But while we must want to level the playing field and see all cheats removed from the game, we must be careful not to taint the innocent and falsely accused based on nothing more than an accusation you like the sound of.

People in sport lie. But many tell the truth. In a game of ‘he said, he said’ we must demand innocence remains intact until evidence can be presented to defend the allegations.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester’s statements at this point are no more or less believable than the accusations levelled at some of their employees.

To say otherwise without evidence is poor form indeed.

[Well, perhaps just Leicester and Arsenal. There could actually be some evidence against Chelsea, or, at least a second source.]
