    You actually think you have Lance all figured out LMAO. I'd be suprised if Lance's decibel level of whining comes anywhere close to you girls(musette excluded, of course). The trains long gone, Lance is on it - your not, and the rest of you, like always, are dropped in his dust to write the OBIT. Lance put his head in the guillotine, all thats left is for the AFLD to drop the blade. Nothing changed, Lance has still not officially tested positive for anything and if your to be believed the AFLD is setting themselves up to be Lance's whipping boy(OT: I'm starting to believe in Martians more and more each day - did he also pay the lone assasin, I mean lone bum with a backpack, I mean lone doctor without an escort, to show up for a test so he could begin the process of decoupling from the Tour? I heard he's a shrewd business man and it wouldn't surprise me if he refused to pay for an escort, at least the non-Hollywood type.). I'm taking Jimmy Poop's advice and not posting on something that isn't worth as much as his surname. The Giro route change is intriguing. Bad communication?? too remote?? Or could it be something more sinister. I mean, what were they thinking, altering the beloved Cuneo-Pinerolo so it doesn't pass on French soil. Back to the other site that is ahead of the train.

    It does speak for itself.
    5.4.1. precedes 5.4.2.

    Otherwise both sections would be incorporated under one single section.


    As far as you have heard...........
    Heard from which sources?
    Other websites? PR spin?


    The word "if" permeates a lot of your posts.


    It's curious how you and several others here, only seem to post about one topic, namely Armstrong.
    Repeating the same old lines, reptitively.

    You do know that Paris-Roubaix, for example, is being raced tomorrow?
    No thoughts about that race, or any other race, per chance?
    or maybe you're still burnt after your ill fated touting of Tom Danielson, some years back?

    I can see why you dearly want to see your man at the TDF - because you and your kind have no other reason to post on this site.

    There is only a handfull of people who do talk about current matters including racing rather than Armstrong all the time. It's sad this site has come to only a handfull of solid people and the rest that talk about Armstrong like he is a God, pure shit.

    Oh, so he's in the fucking lab with the scientists performing empirical studies? He may do fundraising, but LiveStrong is a promotional vehicle more than anything else.

    Go fuck yourself. I, like millions of others, watched a family member rot away to the brink of death from cancer. The last person I want championing the cause of cancer is a fraud like Lance Armstrong. How about we stop believing in his comeback myth and start believing in the everyday people who fight this disease without the resources of an overpaid athlete. If you want to believe the myth, or if you choose to ignore the hypocrisy of his doping, then fine. Just don't chastise others who think that Armstrong's character is less-than-stellar.

    If you really think his charity is the shit, then hit up charitynavigator and go over the figures on your own. And you may want to ask Armstrong's chum College about their initial rationale for starting the charity.

    Well, jimmyrot, since you resorted to vulgarity, I'll do the same: You go fuck yourself.

    I lost both my parents to cancer, so this issue is pretty close to me. Your blind hatred of Armstrong is imbecilic but... you're certainly on the right board to post it.

    and StrongArm's tactics are all the more reprehensible for manipulating a constituency liable to emotional cues

    Congratulations! You've put together a whole phrase of multi-syllabic words and managed not to say a damned thing! :rolleyes:

    cycling and cancer are in no ways tied, they are mutually exclusive. There is no relevance to fighting cancer in this sphere. You are conflating the subject. Armstrong cannot shield himself, behind the illness.

    Dont frame the controversy in those terms. It is a doping issue, just like Landis. It is not a French issue. No need to make it something it is not, and put a halo on a guy who does not deserve it.

    I lost both my grandparents to cancer within 2 weeks of each other and I can say that what Armstrong is doing and how everyone is treating him is wrong. He is living on a lie and using a lie to try and help people.

    There is numerous evidence against him that he's doped. Everyone knows it. You don't need to test positive to dope.

    But for him to actually parade around like he is God and saying that all his achievements were done the right way and everyone treating him like God at the same time whilst he is living this lie is morally wrong.

    Anyone else find that morally wrong? Or is it just me?

    You see. There is a difference between me and Lance Armstrong. That is I'm not living a lie. I admit I have made mistakes and I grow from those mistakes. Armstrong on the otherhand is living a lie and doesn't want to admit he has made mistakes and parading around like he is God and the best person on the planet.

    If he wants to live his life that way so be it. And if people want to still follow him based on these facts, then you are all sad human beings yourself.
    The sooner Armstrong is busted and comes clean, the better. If he comes clean first I will start to respect him. Until he admits to it, I will not respect him or his groupies who worship him.

    if he came clean, no reason to respect him, more respect is deserved to all the people Armstrong has bullied and sought to hinder their careers. Like Bassons and Andreu.

    Your parents died of cancer.
    Which has no bearing whatsoever as regarding a rider having apparently failed a dope test.

    Agreed.

    It's a doping issue solely.

    The cult of cancer martyrdoom invoked by Armstrong and his followers, when accused of doping, is ludicrous.

    Aside from all the bull most of the arguement here is about the technicalities of how the rules are applied? Call me a fool but I was going to sit back and see how the lawyers handled that. Yah know, the people who have been trained for stuff like that? I know it's nice to bitch at each other but 12 pages of crap is a lot off.... crap when all we have to do is wait to see what happens when LA goes to court.

    There are plenty of threads started on various subjects - but certain members are only interested in making postings solely about their hero and his latest travails.

    Try persuading them to post on other threads - you'll have your work cut out,

    With a bit of brain that could help much.

    How a tester could follow an athlete in his house?
    Should he break the law to do his job as DCO?

    It's only the responsability of the athlete to not push the chaperone outside of the law.
    If Musette were waiting Lance's come back after his training to give him some reconfort, should the DCO assist to that performance? :rolleyes:

    We can recognize a part of his work... but because of his lies not everyone believes in his sincerity and his honesty.
    Does he use the LAF to promote himself, to put more money in his pocket?

    You would probably say, it does not matter because he is increasing cancer fight too... but that is a very short term vision, because that money could have been used better, and if the story breaks that would make big damages for all other honest funds!

    Most people here have probably lost someone to cancer - I certainly have. I also I have no problem thinking Lance is a doper, a liar, an asshole, and an all around fraud. Your blind love of Lance is just as imbecilic.

    Or posting solely about hoping for the demise of Armstrong for past inferred doping, which most of the posts in this particular sub forum seem to be. But then again I guess the list of riders that have been found guilty or deemed guilty in a court of law just isn't quite long enough to be able to pick on from for the occaisional comment, despite the fact that you could pretty much pick from half the 5 times tour winners and nearly every Tour winner in the 70's, 80s and 90s...

    You guys are just as funny as those that believe cycling is becoming a clean sport. Top level sports will always feature, to some extent, a battle between those who seek that extra edge and those that try to come up with dope controls to discover what that 'edge' is.
