A) The Tour didn't put it on the list, at the time it was on the international list that the Tour and almost every other sport uses.
B) The Tour didn't publicize his use of the substance - he did it himself by talking about it with a reporter who did an article.
C) The Tour never said a word about it until the statement clearing him. He may have taken criticism about it, but that was not because of anything the Tour did.
I would not be happy in his shoes, but I wouldn't try to shift the blame from myself, where it truly lies, to the Tour which did almost nothing at all to bring on the public calumny. And THAT, my friend, is why he is being a jerk.
I would be PISSED if I were in Vijay's shoes. I would also be PISSED if I were in Lee Janzen's shoes. And the REASONS are identical: because I clearly didn't pay enough attention to the PUBLISHED rules and when I disobeyed those PUBLISHED rules I came off looking like someone who either doesn't care about the rules or is too lazy to read and follow instructions.
In BOTH cases I'd be pissed at myself. Nobody else. Because it was NOBODY's fault but mine that I didn't follow simple instructions.
