    If these stories are true, does that make Armstrongs denials look more believable? The Tour has managed to catch all the big players in recent years, except the one they wanted the most.

    What a bitch. I'm with Mizzou, these fucks will never learn. What's worse, finishing 10th clean or getting busted after winning?

    And then he disappears, presumably because he found out? A grade A pussy.

    Go America.

    Apparently he doesn't.

    And if this is true, it sucks.

    Uhhh, thanks for the tip. It wasn't necessary. Armstrong cheated too. It hasn't hurt him any. He gets the kid gloves treatment.

    Whatever reporter finally has the balls to expose Lance for the fraud that he is will be my hero...

    Nobody in this country wants to touch that story because the everybody wants to believe that Armstrong didn't cheat.

    If Landis failing this test results in more investigating of Armstrong, I'll be very happy about all of this...

    How are they going to test Lance any more -- run an autopsy?

    You're going to be presenting your rock-solid evidence of this any minute, right?

    Wow. I can't wait to see what the guys on Around the Horn have to say about this.

    What a kick to the stomach this story is. I hope it is not true.

    I'm sure it's all just a misunderstanding. Somebody probably spiked his water bottle. /benjohnson
  11. I think this actually, like someone else already pointed out, make Armstrong look better. They tested him for years and he came up clean again and again. But they catch Landis, guys like Ullrich and Basso were implicated in a scandal, and on and on. Now that doesn't mean Armstrong never juiced; it just adds to his defense.

    Meanwhile, this just makes cycling look like more and more of a joke.

    Pretty good quote from Floyd's mom in the AP story:

    Arlene Landis, his mother, said Thursday that she wouldn't blame her son if he was taking medication to treat the pain in his injured hip, but "if it's something worse than that, then he doesn't deserve to win."
