YOUR VOTE DOESN’T COUNT, and that’s great! Can you imagine if a big bike race… like The Tour or Paris Roubaix… came down to a beauty contest and “experts” decided which two teams would contest the final sprint as well as how the rest of the teams would finish?
What if the UCI pulled in billions of dollars and the racers made zero?
That’s how it works at the highest levels of American College Football, which is “amateur”. The teams generate billions of dollars and the players make ZERO.
And, AND!, at the end of the college football season some “smarterthanme people” get in a room and decide who the best teams are and their final rankings, except for the top 4 voted-best teams who get to play each other.
They say it’s tradition, and best for the kids.
I say, BS.
So, as I watch my struggling Trojans bounce around the bottom 20 in the beauty contest and eat pizza and yell at the TV screen when the refs blow it I can only say thank you to the UCI and ASO, andUSA Cycling. Because even though you make a mockery of what your customers and fans want and vote for…
… at least your vote doesn’t count, when it really counts!
