    I never said you were wrong, just saying you were saying the exact same thing as board whipping boy trounced.

    In some sports, if you cheated and don't get caught, it's a badge of honor.

    I asked a longtime cycling writer, a guy who has covered the Tour for decades, if he thought Lance cheated and he said, "Without a doubt.."

    I asked him why no one has written that and he said, "Nobody here wants to read that..."

    Re: Reuters: Landis has positive doping test?

    No, the first of his two ex-wives is not making the accusations in this story.

    To interrupt the Landis and Armstrong crucifixions for one second ...

    FWIW, the expert interviewed on ESPN says B samples very often read differently when dealing with testosterone positives. He also said every testosterone positive that has ever been appealed has been overturned.

    Their basic premise, it seems: Testosterone is so easy to catch that there's no way he'd have doped that way.

    I'm with Mizzou.

    The annual fellation of bicycle riders by the American media is sickening.  

    At least with Bonds you can make some sort of argument that even with steroids his skills are pretty sick.  When it comes to riding a bike, it's just a cheating contest.

    You really, REALLY do not want to go there trounced. If that's the case, then ANY of the people you've ever held up as being good and legit should and would be called into question and trashed.

    trounced --
    No matter how you torture the English language, cheating on one's spouse is an idiom. The words don't even mean the same thing, let alone suggest anything toward one another. That's linguistically.

    Logically, your argument never gets started. It makes no sense. A, so B. You're missing an entire step.

    Try to speak the tongue we've all agreed on, please.

    I think the character of anyone who cheated on a spouse should be called into question. How can it not be?

    Right, and Tyler Hamilton didn't blood dope....he has more hemoglobin because of a twin brother that was never born.

    That stood out when I read the story. Loading up on testosterone is ancient in the world of doping. I can't believe somebody would try that now.
  12. Mizzou,

    Maybe I'm getting the wrong impression here, but based on your posts it appears that you beleive that the Lance doping story is there and someone is sitting on it. Wouldn't breaking that almost be a Wood / Stein moment for someone?
