...Gaimon and think it is absurd he is getting heat over alleging/insinuating/thinking/saying that he thought Fabian motor-doped. He has further explained himself, but really, is there any need for that???

---------------------------------------------

In "Draft Animals," I repeated a rumor that's well-documented and many years old, and I presented it as such. I stand by my opinion, but it's exactly that, and anyone who actually opened the book would know that what I said was far from an "accusation." Put a gun to my head and that's what I believe so I'd be a liar if I left it out, but I claim no revelations or proof, so I don't see it being "taken off the shelves" except by the folks buying it. Ironically, that part in the book is dismissing conspiracy theories about motors today as clickbait, and it's now been turned into clickbait.
My friendship with Tom Danielson is a big part of the story, so usually when I get hate mail, it's calling me a hypocrite for not being enough of a "doper hater." I didn't expect this to be pulled out of context or turned into mudslinging, and I'm sorry for anyone who's wasted time or energy on it. That's not how I wanted to sell books, and it's not worth this headache. There were some things I had to get off my chest and some tough times to share to give a picture of the sport as I experienced it, but if a juicy tell-all is what you're looking for, don't bother buying it. I don't reference any scandal you haven't heard before, and I'll probably show empathy towards dopers that you want me to hate. I expect that type of reader will be disappointed.
