    When will Alberto Contador be discredited?

    Today?
    Tomorrow?
    Next month?

    When will Roid Landis be acquitted?

    When will Nike renew with Lance?

    thanks for the link. it was a good article. the following quote speaks volumes:

    they can all talk about wanting to clean the sport but it is incredibly hard to change culture.

    okay...i'll read on.
    BUT.....
    but to begin an article with some rock lyrics is the laziest of lazy journalism. I have always disdained this weak attempt at being 'cute'

    f*cking print journalists

    it's on par with the grammar-challenged writers who use the overused parentheticals such as ''(Think so-and-so....)" , because we poor readers are too stupid to make the connection on our own.

    Tears for a cheat is the refrain.

    Otherwise well-done I think...and he didnt need to infuse his article with the idiotic refrain from an Eagles song

    OTOH-----he SHOULD have used 'Comfortably Numb' by Pink Floyd....not THAT I get!!!

    :D

    One thing is clear and that is Discovery is in disarray! Their times tactics and overall plan was woefully inadequate. JB is without a doubt the worst coach in the professional ranks. With all their riders constantly testing positive I don't understand how they are able to keep their team illgible to race. They are in disarray...The French are a shill for the team and tilt the playing field for them, but it does not matter since they are so incompetent. They could not win a one day race in lower Alabama let alone 7 of 8 Tour De France races. The entire bike community is a shill for LA and Discovery...I am sick of this. When will this all end?

    This betays Kimmage's bias:

    It was an hour later when Bradley Wiggins arrived. The 27-year-old Londoner had performed brilliantly since London but his Tour would end in the back of a police car.

    “They’re not bandits,” a spectator roared as he was escorted into the hotel. It just felt that way. He had been screwed by Vinokourov, screwed by Rasmussen and finally, cruelly, screwed by Moreni, his testoster-one-popping teammate. Tears? Don’t make him laugh.

    “For the first 24 hours after it happened my reaction was that I was going to get out of the sport,” he told a press conference in Manchester on Friday. “Once I got home with my family I settled down. I want to show there are enough of us to make a difference.

    “I couldn’t care less about the result now. We need to get it done and dusted, then try to start restoring credibility. It’s not the end of the Tour, but they need a rethink about who rides in the future. A lot of riders are angry. There have to be life bans for the cheats. The rewards of winning are so high, they are ready to take these risks.”

    It is time for a new omelette. Hand Bradley the egg

    -------------------------------------

    Wiggins, the savior of cycling. Kimmage just knows Wiggins is clean. He's British after all. No need to ask any questions about his ITT performance. Only the few riders who beat him were dirty? Then again, given Kimmage's sentiments, how did he beat all of the dopers behind him in the ITT?

    Hypocritical article, poorly written and sensationalistic. The man just wants to sell a few papers. I think he cares not about the future of the sport.
