Lance failed at least twice. This is an established fact.

Note that "facts" are now determined by the number of times an
allegation has been repeated on rbr.

It's not so much a factor of how many times an allegation has been
repeated, but rather who is repeating it, that determines its veracity.

From Velo News:

"Viatcheslav Ekimov could find himself with a gold medal following
startling admissions by Tyler Hamilton that he doped to win the 2004
Olympic time trial championship."

http://velonews.competitor.com/2011/05/news/ekimov-reacts-to-hamilton-statements_175067

Apparently, Velo News doesn't know that Ekimov already has two other
Olympic gold medals.

And if Ekimov is any kind of man he will come clean about the
boosting, EPO and T he's been taking.

He's a god damn fraud too.

OK Brian, I'll play along with your delusion.

What *exactly* is Lance going to be doing time for ? Don't be a candy
ass. man up and tell us exactly what "crime" he has committed that can
be proven. And before you start with the "obstruction of justice"
nonsense, you have no idea at all as to what he actually testified to,
if indeed anything. So therefore you can definitively say that he can be
tried for that.

And while you and Anton are messing up your Jizz rags with this, He
doped. Get over it. It's not worth the bother or the taxpayers dollars
in pursuing this.

A telling point. The prosecution

We've all seen this but only in 1990 do we have a clean rider on the
podium for the years Armstrong doped his way to first place.

You have to go pretty deep to find a clean rider.

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4111/5040547056_3dacf5edfd_b.jpg

1999 winner of the Tour de France is now Fernando Escartin.

2000 winner is ( you have to go to 8th place to find a non-doper ) is
also Fernado Escartin !

2001 winner is Andrei Kivilev

2002 won by José Azevedo

2003 won by Haimar Zubeldia

2004 won by José Azevedo

2005 won by (former 8th place) Cadel Evans

Methodology was to wiki the tour then wiki the gc until I found no
(historically) doping allegations/implications or positive tests/
suspensions listed.

Also note 2009 - now won by Andy Schleck

Really? You're more gullible than I thought. "Clean"? It's an
illusion, you have no idea at all if these guys are "clean", and
there's every indication that they're not. Your "evidence" of no
allegations/implications is simply silly - anyone who was in top 20 on
GC in a GT for the past couple of decades is suspect, and more than
likely a doper. Just what it takes to be in that group.

I knew your pursuit of LA was ridiculous, but this list you've
compiled seals the deal.

If I remember correctly, didn't Hincapie get his US pro championship

You *are* referring to rbr, correct? There's so little obvious
"essential" content that I've always assumed the lengthy drivel contains
the real message, written in code.

That is a good article.

But someone should have advised Flandis and Tugboat that when bad news
hits, the best thing is to meet it head on, dispose of it ASAP, lick
your wounds and carry on trucking.

And Someone should tell Lance Who that the best thing to do when they're
Running You Out Of Town is to get Ahead of the Crowd and make it look

it's just speculation that Georgie said anything damming to the Feds;
they are publishing on the hope he confessed sins to the grand jury- I
don't believe there are *any* leaks in the investigation itself.

I think we should pause to congratulate Lafferty
on doubling down on his Armstrong obsession by
carrying it over to the circumstances of LANCE's
upbringing, hence the disparaging "Gunderson"
references. Clearly LANCE's biological father realized
the evil that LANCE would become, and escaped his
pernicious influence when the demon-child was but
a two year old. Who can blame the dad, really?

Of course they are. That doesn't mean they are incapable of tell the
truth. It seems the Feds are going to have a lot of corroborating
evidence. Lance will do time on this one and his dance card will be
filled to the rim.

Quoted above, first you say that
"he's called Frankie, Floyd and Tyler liars"
and then you say
"Mr. Lance will be defaming his former teammates who are
telling the truth, if he actually calls them liars. He's really
close
to the line now by attacking their motives and brining up their
past lies ..."

You can't even keep your own story straight. Is he in trouble
for calling them liars, or is he in trouble because he will
call them liars? Did you, as an attorney, recommend that they
pre-emptively sue him now for what he will say in the future?
I mean, the best defense is a good offense, they always say.

Your legal theory that LANCE is close to a legal line by
bringing up [acknowledged] past lies of someone he wishes
to impugn is very creative. LANCE may be up shit creek without
an innertube, and maybe deservedly, but if he actually gets
successfully sued for making a factually true statement, I'll buy
you a hand-carved commemorative soapbox.

OK. They are liars. Let's go with that. So if Lance calls them liars
he's telling the truth AND he's defaming them? Interesting theory.

I'm just saying that you shouldn't get your panties in a bunch if Tyler
and Floyd are called liars. Because they are.

Whether Lance will do time or not remains to be seen. I'm not sure who's
getting charged with what. All the stories in the media are focused on
the fact that Lance cheated. Big deal, should come as no surprise to
anyone. I'm more interested in knowing if they found a paper trail or
financial records and who was or wasn't implicated there. That stuff is
too boring to write a newspaper column about but more important when
you're trying to prove ... fraud?

What a vivid imagination you have Anton, from the word of a lying SOB
who said he saw Lance take drugs to this
long list of illegal activities, that's some leap. Bob Beamon would be
proud. No doubt the prosecutors will have
all the financial transaction documentation as evidence of these
activities. Naaaa!
Sorry, but while this latest event has a few of you Lance haters
frothing at the mouth, I see it as just more ho hum.
Let me know when you've got some "real" evidence.

I won't answer your rhetorical question but is this a primary source

Very well, thank you. If you had concerns that anything current regarding
Lance would affect them, I think it's a good three years too late for that
to be an issue. Actually more likely 6 or 7. The "Lance effect" on sales was
strongest during his first three TdF runs. After that it was generally
accepted within the bike biz that Lance had as much effect boosting
competitor's sales as Trek's. Or, to put it another way, Lance was very good
for the cycling biz in a generic sense.

Some denizens of RBR aree subject to weekly and/or monthly restrictions
as regards bandwidth, and every little Helps

Similarly, some news wires, publishers, or other disssipators of what
passes for news, bitch if one quotes full articles instead of the few
lines permitted as "fair comment" etc. with a hyperlink to the full item.
.
This was another poster, but it does need watching as some - like AP -
threaten court action and Lance can't spare his liar (OOPS) (Lawyer)
right now to defend us.

Rest assured that Davey doesn't want to Pee on Anyones Parade, but perhaps
we could just neaten it up a Tad?

Regards, Davey

Lance failed at least twice. This is an established fact.

Armstrong Tweeted: "Congratulations to @eki_ekimov on his 3rd Olympic
Gold Medal!!" That was a reference to his former US Postal Service
team-mate, Vjatcheslav Ekimov, who was second to Hamilton in that
Athens time trial. It appears Armstrong has no problem with titles
being retrospectively stripped in such circumstances. Good to know.

( Great to know. Anton )

"And together we all allowed one man to dominate the sport, to its
detriment."

What detriment? The sport grew tremendously while Lance was winning his 7
TdFs. The detriment of scandal? Something in any way unusual for bicycle
racing from an historical context? The detriment of having an American
beating the Euros at their own game? The detriment, if true, of learning
from the Festina scandal and finding a better way to cheat?

What was it "we" allowed? What were "we" supposed to do? If Lance doped, he
didn't win 7 TdFs because he doped. He won because he had a system in place
that other teams lacked. Other teams that most certainly were doping at the
time (as proven by those who were caught). To the extent we gave him
sainthood, sure, guilty on that one. But it's absurd to suggest that cycling
suffered greatly due to Lance, or that any one thing Lance did caused that
to happen.

Thanks for sharing your utterly vapid, amoral position on what
Armstrong and Co. did, Mike. How many Treks and how much profit did
you make off Trek/Lance product during the lying years?

Mainly questions surrounding my experience at the OTC with the coaches
that Lance later had. Questions about his teammates and statements
they had made on training rides. A lot of other specifics that I
can't recall or don't wish to talk about now. I still have friends
out there.

When you say "if you take the time to read this...", what does "this"
refer to? I don't see a link.

It is reasonable to recognize that the prosecutors are not a bunch of
fanboys and amateurs. The fanboys and amateurs arguing this in RBR are
not familiar with neither the evidence nor the law. Where you and I
differ is that I include you and Lafferty in the list of fanboys and
amateurs.

Dumbass,

Calling them liars does not imply a claim of perjury. May I
remind you that you're not an attorney and shouldn't claim
knowledge in this area.

======
Dude, he's called Frankie, Floyd and Tyler liars and and implied that
they've committed perjury.
I hope a few of these folks get together and sue his Plano ass for
defamation and business interference (some of them).
======

So it's only the last one standing who has any accountability? These guys,
by popular account, have been lying and making upstories FOR YEARS. Now
suddenly they've changed their tune, saying they're telling the truth now,
they were lying before when they denied various allegations against each of
them. What makes Lance's liability in lawsuits and/or personal credibility
in general any different from the rest of them?

And then there's Floyd. You really want to bring him up in the same
paragraph as "honorable" people? Floyd continued to make up stories (lie)
after his big confession. Some people cannot help themselves. Maybe Floyd
*was* treated like a second-class citizen when working for Lance. But he
can't help but make up fictional stories that sound like they could have
happened, to bolster his claims. Specifically, as I said before, Floyd was
not riding "old" equipment that was any different from what anyone else on
the team was riding. Floyd continued to spew nonsense long after his
"confession."

How much nonsense from others? I don't know. But I think it unlikely that a
low-level mafia grunt would be able to successfully sue his boss for libel,
and that might be what we're looking at here. It could be a bunch of
now-repentent mafia grunts, but I think that's a distinction without legal
merit.

Regarding the case in general, as I said elsewhere, what will give
credibility to the "Lance is a lying doper" line will be one or both of the
following-

#1: Forensic evidence, which has been amazingly lacking so far, at least
what we know of. Maybe there will be a big surprise the week before the TdF.

#2: Grand Jury testimony from multiple sources documenting the same event
the same way. So far, we have many people each with their own separate Lance
doping tale. What we don't seem to have are even two people documenting the
same event, despite the fact that Lance was typically around more than just
one person when these things are said to have happened. If it turns out that
we do have such testimony, then it's pretty much case-closed for the
Lance-is-clean camp.

FuckTard, as an attorney, I can tell you that Mr. Lance will be
defaming his former teammates who are telling the truth, if he
actually calls them liars. He's really close to the line now by
attacking their motives and brining up their past lies. And if he
actually calls them liars, then he is also calling them perjurers as
well---actionable. And the Uniballer won't be able to use truth as his
absolute defense. Now, please go back under your personal rock and
jack off some more before amusing us further.

Triple-shot venti mocha. Should have been a double-shot grande. Better yet
something from Main Street Coffee rather than *bucks.

But why not just answer the two questions I asked? Tell me why they're not
reasonable. Or that they're already been answered. So far we continue to see
regurgitation of the same stuff, over and over and over, as if reprinting
multiple stories of the same person saying the same thing somehow makes it
more credible. Here they are again-

#1: Forensic evidence, which has been amazingly lacking so far, at least
what we know of. Maybe there will be a big surprise the week before the TdF.

#2: Grand Jury testimony from multiple sources documenting the same event
the same way. So far, we have many people each with their own separate Lance
doping tale. What we don't seem to have are even two people documenting the
same event, despite the fact that Lance was typically around more than just
one person when these things are said to have happened. If it turns out that
we do have such testimony, then it's pretty much case-closed for the
Lance-is-clean camp.

Armstrong's tight inner circle crumbles

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/otl/columns/story?id=6572159

LOS ANGELES -- After all these years, all these miles and all the suspicion, it's still somewhat astonishing to see the cars on the old Blue Train uncoupling one by one. This may forever be remembered as the week when Lance Armstrong finally lost control over the U.S. Postal Service cycling team that formally disbanded years ago.

One of Armstrong's most prominent support riders from early on in his seven-year reign as Tour de France champion, Tyler Hamilton, admitted to his own doping past and has given the CBS newsmagazine "60 Minutes" an alleged eyewitness account of Armstrong using performance-enhancing drugs that will air on Sunday evening.

The network also reported a potentially even more weighty revelation, saying that George Hincapie, the only man to have been on all of Armstrong's Tour-winning teams, has told federal authorities investigating Armstrong that the two men supplied each other with banned substances and discussed their use. Hincapie has not confirmed the story and said he never spoke to "60 Minutes."

Armstrong has never strayed from his blanket denial of doping. But taken together with Floyd Landis' year-old detailed confession and allegations of Armstrong doping, the new material constitutes a far more serious assault on Armstrong's integrity than anything previously unearthed in the 12 years since he became a global superstar. It also represents a total rupture of formerly strong bonds between the ex-teammates, bonds that once would have seemed impossible to break, whether because of camaraderie or common interest.

The supremely efficient Postal teams of Lance Armstrong's heyday ran on schedule -- his schedule. More than any other organization of that era, they were built on the principle of all for one and one for the Tour de France. Other races were tuneups or afterthoughts, and other individual aspirations were footnotes, if they existed at all. Postal riders were self-effacing and loyal to their leader; the Tour was one big buddy movie on two-wheelers.
[+] EnlargeGeorge Hincapie
PASCAL PAVANI/AFP/Getty ImagesArmstrong, right, and George Hincapie in the Tour of Switzerland cycling race in 2010.

At least it was made to appear that way. What the world was permitted to see of the team off the road was tightly monitored. Minders sat in on interviews. Journalists sympathetic to the team were enlisted to keep tabs on who was saying what in the press room. Hostile journalists were photographed and blacklisted. The Blue Train was also a gravy train that altered the trajectory of many careers. Woe to anyone who tried to derail it by raising doubts that the team was clean.

Through that filter, Hincapie, Hamilton and Landis were all initially viewed as charming sidekicks defined by the roles they played for Armstrong, and they had to work hard to establish separate identities. But Armstrong's grip on their psyches persisted after they left the team, mainly because his power and influence within cycling continued to grow. When Hamilton and Landis were busted for doping in 2004 and 2006, respectively, neither seriously considered telling the truth about his own history or the toxic culture of the sport that had turned cheating into a rational act and lying into a lifestyle.

Both riders fought their positive tests and didn't rat on anyone, confident they had calculated the odds correctly. "If you point your finger at [Armstrong] and a few other people who run the sport, you're not allowed back in," Landis said Friday.

That construct is crumbling before our eyes now. It took the two former Postal lieutenants who had the least to lose -- having already lost so much -- to bring the heaviest sledgehammers to it thus far. The triggers for their confessions and allegations may seem clear-cut: Landis was angry, and Hamilton was subpoenaed to appear before a federal grand jury hearing evidence in the case. But it would be unfair to oversimplify their stories. Both men have suffered for their hubris and mistakes. There are a lot of decent people in cycling who have been warped by its extremes like plywood in the hot sun.

"I know what these guys are about to go through, and it's a rough road," said Frankie Andreu, who five years ago admitted using performance-enhancing drugs to prepare for the 1999 Tour, the race that marked the start of Armstrong's dominance. "I have a lot of respect for them for telling the truth."

Andreu and his wife, Betsy, were once close friends of Armstrong's, but the relationship soured after they testified in a 2005 arbitration hearing that they had heard him tell doctors he had used performance-enhancing drugs when they visited him in the hospital during his cancer treatment in late 1996.

In comments on Friday to VeloNews.com, Andreu said of Hincapie, "You can't find a nicer guy, a more trustworthy guy, a more respected person in the peloton. Lance has ripped apart, attacked and shredded anybody that's said anything against him. I don't know that that would work against George."

Veteran U.S. rider Michael Creed said he observed "a lot of self-hate" in Hamilton while they were briefly teammates at Rock Racing in 2008, and feels compassion for him now.

"Would it make more sense to lie after you get caught, or now?" Creed asked rhetorically. "What makes more sense? I don't think you're ever married to a lie."

Landis, who torpedoed his own credibility more than once in the process of contesting his doping case and then coming clean, said he hoped people would "look at the big picture and try to make a judgment on everything that was happening. ... Don't look at [Hamilton] and work backwards and say, 'This guy must be telling a lie and there must be a reason.'"

The Hincapie report remains unsourced at the moment, and should be regarded differently unless that changes. If it's true that he outed himself, there could be implications for his career, unless the admissions were to fall outside the eight-year anti-doping statute of limitations or a deal has been struck with authorities. What would be his record-tying 16th Tour start looms little more than a month away, and he has spoken recently of wanting to race one more season.

What ultimately matters is not what any media outlet reports Hincapie testified to, but what Hincapie actually said behind closed doors and how it weaves into the vast, sprawling Armstrong odyssey. By virtue of never having been involved in a doping case, Hincapie has a larger reservoir of public goodwill than Hamilton or Landis, and that could make him a more sympathetic figure. He also might engender more fan disappointment, judging by the comments on his Twitter feed.

Those old Postal teams were disciplined. They rode team time trials with geometric precision and they swarmed to the front of the peloton at the base of major climbs, blowing up the group with a high tempo and making sure one or more helpers were with Armstrong on the way up. They protected him. On the rare occasions that he was isolated, it was a jarring sight. This week, it feels like his escort is dwindling.

That is a good article.

But someone should have advised Flandis and Tugboat that when bad news
hits, the best thing is to meet it head on, dispose of it ASAP, lick
your wounds and carry on trucking.

And Someone should tell Lance Who that the best thing to do when they're

Life isn't fair. No matter what field you're in, there will be people
cheating to get ahead. There are businesses around me that save boatloads of
$$$ by paying their employees under the table. My lifestyle would be
enhanced were I to do the same, but my ethics won't allow me to cheat like
that. Oh, but it's only the IRS, you'd never get caught, everybody does it.
Yeah right. I know exactly where Mercier is coming from.

But I like who I am, and I wouldn't want to become someone else, even if it
meant I'd be more "successful" by traditional definitions.

We all make choices that reflect upon our values & goals. The tough part,
for many, is living with the ethical standards they're ocmfortable with,
without looking at things in life with a scorecard. I get frustrated at
times, being sometimes less competitive on product because I have
significantly-higher expenses than someone else, but it hasn't driven me to
want to cheat, and when I examine changes to my business to become more
competitive, I always have to look at whether those changes might require
moving long-time ethical boundaries. At some point, the decision could come
that it's just no longer practical to remain in business, just as others
decided they can't remain in cycling at a competitive level. Many would
suggest that the better choice of action, after having invested all these
years in the business (or cycling), would be to do what you have to to level
the playing field. Cheat. But the more-important investment over all those
years is in your ethics.

he do for employment. Sugestions please. Some that come to mind,

1. Gunderson's Snowball Stand
2. Gunderson's Plano Fix a Flat
3. Gunderson's Famous Sperm Donor Center
4. Gunderson's Shoe Shine (At an AMTRAK location near you --
franchises available)
5. Gunderson's FuckTard Twelve Step Program
