Please God Make It Stop

Um, what did we do to deserve this?

"There will be grave consequences for the French Federation, for teams and for riders if Paris-Nice takes place with a full field outside of the UCI regulations and structure. For now, I don't want to go into the details of what those sanctions might be."

In all seriousness, I don't see why people can't simply tune out McQuaid and the entire Paris-Nice episode. Riders and teams will ride, the points won't count toward the Pro Tour which wasn't happening anyway, and despite his dark tones McQuaid can't afford to take any real action against anyone. If he alienates the top 20 teams in the world, then I don't see what's left of his job besides spreading Cycling to small, indifferent countries with poor roads and better things to worry about.
