The repercussions of the case are likely to go far beyond Heras's own
personal disgrace.

The exposure of the team's number one rider is likely to prompt insurance
giant Liberty to review their sponsorship of the Spanish-based outfit and
could cause other leading businesses to withdraw their support from cycling

The positive from Heras, widely recognised as one of the most exciting
riders on the circuit, further undermines the reputation of a sport that has
had its image badly tarnished by a succession of similar episodes in recent
years.

Poor word economy. "The end is near!" gets the same point across in
fewer words.

Brian, interesting points, I am sorry if my reply rambles as I am sick with

yes, on the other hand, some other sports are viewed as clean because they
either do not test, or the terms for the testing are defined by the sport in
question's players.

do sponsors want to put their advertising dollars into
- a sport that is actively being a leader and looking for drug use to
keep things clean - I believe this is good,
- or do they want to put their dollars into sports that stick their head
in the sand ( for example baseball )
- or put their dollars into something like bodybuilding where drugs are
the norm
it's their choice to spend dollars to best promote their company. I am just
saying that if I was chosing, I would chose the people and sport that is
proactive.

The convictions of Hamilton, Heras, etc. can be viewed as either the glass
half empty or the glass half full.

Dumbass -


For the past several years you've been trying to make the case that
doping makes cycling less exciting.


thanks,

I think the writer was engaging in hyperbole. Did you rent Adams' Family

Dumbass -

Heras won the Vuelta in the last week this year and what was it, 2
years ago?, he won it on the last day.

You are correct. Very, very boring.


thanks,

K. Gringioni.

Happy? No. But it really doesn't matter how I feel. It's how Liberty Mutual
and other sponsors (actual and potential) feel.

Okay, prove it. Point to one person who was fooled when you lied.

I thought you were going to say "It's not a lie when I believe it."

Look inside yourself.

Is it not a lie when you believe it?

All the time. Didn't they give you some tools for that at Harvard. If they
didn't, let me know.

He can't be a very good lawyer then. Perhaps he needs to brush up on Lying
101 as taught at most reputable law schools.
