    I hear the same BUT I also hear that it's not blood but red bloodcells without DNA material in it (but ... I am not an DNA expert)

    For all those who can read German, it's about the Ullrich case and Gemrna media:

    Looks very good..

    I'd like to know everyone's thoughts about Ullrich just doing this to blow off the media so he can make a return? Just throwing out theories...

    Very nice letter, CH.

    Yes, it's important to acknowledge any help given to encourage kids and JU certainly came through for you guys in that instance.
    Nice gesture by JU.

    Good on you for acknowledging that publicly, CH.

    Mark McGwire, Barry Bonds, Floyd Landis, Tyler Hamilton and Lance Armstrong gave time and money to charities too! Are they as cool as Operation Puerto's Jan Ulrich?

    If the bags contain red blood cells only and nothing else then we are no nearer to an end of this madness. Whilst I'm not a DNA expert, I am a Biology teacher and I can tell you that as the only cells in the body without a nucleus, they are also the only cells with no DNA (apologies for going all teacher on you all).

    As for the book, any chance of a synopsis in English CH for those of us who don't speak German?

    Nice letter by the way, as Lim said. I remember a while back you saying that you were close to proving that the 'JAN' in the OP documents wasn't Ulle. Any news on that ?

    The separation process is not perfect. There will be enough stray cells other than the RBCs to do a DNA match.

    That's how Tyler Hamilton was nailed to the doper cross. Imperfect spinning of spinners in the centrifuge. Perhaps some of Jan's DNA is still left.

    It hardly matters----as he was already fired by his employer, he then ran away and quit, thus confirming his guilt publicly for all to witness. Certainly not a winning Lance Armstrong tactic.

    But Jan Ulrich supporters will remain in deep denial just as Nike Lance Armstrong fans do. The 'everybody but my guy is a drug cheat' motto.

    Denial is why the idea of "Grand Tour Stage Racing' and 'Doping' are inextricably linked forever. Ulrich serves as more proof.

    A Red Letter Day for anti-doping and commercial fraud.

    Ulrich will be quickly forgotten.

    But not this year because I just got my "2007 Nike Dopers Apologist Calendar" so I will be able to remember all my favorites through the year. :)

    FF, If you order now you will get a bonus "I'm a doper" coozy to keep you drink cool while watching all your favorite sporting events.

    He don't want a play because I am a bonafide former doper, but since I admit to it I ruin all the fun. :p
