    And Lance is crying All the way to the bank…interesting to see that once the USADA announced it’s bogus witch hunt, donations to the Livestrong foundation TRIPLED in one day…

    “HE passed all the tests.”

    As had been said before, there are methods that don’t show up on drug tests yet.

    Found guilty by rumor and innuendo.

    Which means that there is no evidence that Mr. Amrstrong has done anything wrong. There is only the fact that he defeated all challengers and passed every drug test required. But the judges in their opinion think that is enough to cast doubt on his honesty. Guilty until proven innocent.

    Gave up before the lawyers drove him into bankruptcy. Sensible.

    Yeah, let’s just ignore the eyewitness accounts, the cell phones, the blatant improbability of it and the rest of the EVIDENCE.
    .
    Where do you guys stand on Barry Bonds?
    .
    As to the French, yeah, how DARE they try to keep their signature contest clean?
    .
    Lance figured he could outsmart the system and he did fool some of the people all of the time. He may have believed that what he was doing was “Not illegal” But then some people like to believe that “It’s not illegal if they can’t catch you!”
    .
    Far as I can tell, Mr. Armstrong is one of those people.

    Relevant to what?

    If it’s not important, at least make me laugh.

    Wasn’t he tested when he last got on the podium in France a couple of years ago? That was quite a feat for coming out of retirement.

    Kept thinking of all the “supplements” all athletes consume, that are “natural”, and okay. Opium, pot, and coca are also “natural”, and some “legit” things can match “performance enhancement”. Blood transfusions of course aren’t “natural”, but neither is riding the Tour de France for so many years.

    When I use performance enhancing drugs, I always have a big audience to witness it. - - —*
    This is saying Lance is a stupid idiot.

    Why exactly does the USADA have an “ax to grind?”
    .
    They have a responsibility to ALL current, past and future atheletes from the USA to keep their reputations clean.
    .
    Their preference would be for Armstrong to be clean and that they could clear his name and move on. But they COULD NOT!
    .
    East German “female” swimmers! Oh absolutely! Not a question in the minds of most Americans. Chinese girl finishes up the 400 IM with a Freestyle 50 split that matches Ryan Lotche’s last 50… It could happen… NOT! Women don’t swim as fast as men period Take a look
    .
    Ye is suspected of doping for two main reasons. 1 because of her performance and 2. because of the Chinese history of doping.
    .
    The USADA wants Americans to be free of the second reason for doubt.
    .
    I like Lance. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. I liked John Matusak (May He RIP) too!

    Last time Lance won the Tour d’F was in 2005 – 7-years ago.
    .
    Isn’t there a statute of limitation, or is ‘doping’ as bad or worse then murder?
    .
    That said, it is highly doubtful that he would have given-up were it not for some solid evidence . . . .
    .
    Regardless, to have accomplished what he did with or without the aid of some ‘stuff’ was an amazing achievement, and is therefore not likely to tarnish his ‘persona’ power much.

    Yes, there is a statue of limitation. It’s 8 years. There was really no reason why he couldn’t have kept 5 of his victories.

  15. yusodum

    yusodum said, almost 2 years ago

    statute, sorry.

    When reading these comments, I really get the impression that most posters have not been watching the Tour over the years.

    What was happening was that the stage times slowly and quietly were reduced from 8 hours to 6 hours while the bikers looked stronger and stronger.

    Then suddenly they upped the testing, and the stage times returned back to 8 hours.

    Enter Lance, and suddenly he’s doing all the stages in 6 hours and winning. However, he is still passing all his drug tests.

    Then he retires, and his team appoints his old lieutenant, Floyd Landis as team captain. He does abysmally. Suddenly Lance flies in to be moral coach for the team. Landis then has a press conference in which he states something like “a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do”. He then gets some excellent times, wins the tour, and gets busted for doping.

    So, yes, we have really only been sitting waiting for when they would bust Lance Armstrong. Sorry, but it really was that obvious.

    Oh, and disqualifying Lance favours German riders, not French ones.
