It's not that i can't stand Armstrong, but we can't have a media that chooses the guys who they want to give a pass to on the steroid issue. It's more likely then not, Lance Armstrong did steroids.

Read the lastest articles. It looks like all the racers are being accused. Two droppped out of the Tour de France. They have to prove their innocents as Lance has.

zwrites,
Have you not done your homework? How many times has Lance been tested? Over 500 times. How many times have they found steroid use? Zero. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that math. Cheers!!!

Well Avant, you haven't been looking too hard. Restating your opinion over and over again does nothing to further your point.

I believe in Lance's natural ablity ...it's Avant that doesn't. I was responsing to all his negative posting, from other articles on Lance.
Thanks...for pointing out these issues out...Like I said these other racers will have to do the same.

You also believe in the fair god mother, if you think Lance didn't use things, other his natural ability.

Larry King (it doesn't get more mainstream than that really) asked Lance directly: "did you cheat?" the answer? "never." Cyclesport magazine, Pro Cycling magazine and countless others have asked over the past 8 years, the answer's still the same. and there's stilll no proof from France. nothing conclusive has come out of the L'Equipe stories.

question for you avant: did Lance steal your lunch money or something? you're constantly crying into your milk about him, move on please. let's get back to the Tour as it's happening!

I'm tipping Landis with the removal of Valverde due to collarbone fracture... any thoughts, out there?

as i said, i don't even like lance, but i haven't seen the smoking gun yet either. until he, they or someone comes up with it, he's innocent.

now what about Landis? anyone think he's got it this year? or maybe the french might finally have something to crow about with Moreau! that'd be a shocker!

I dont think Landis will win the tour as i cant see him holding it together in the alps selvodelli or hincapie no how to and with support from the rest of the team i think one of them will win it. Why does everybody think Lance cheated he has been tested so many times and never found guillty he is just simply the best

kaiser, if you have money, then you've got to be stupid or arrogant to fail the drug test.

just yesterday I was watching a special on the french TV5 about the 100th anniversary of the TDF...lots of people from reporters to coaches to Tour directors ,etc...one of the most famous riders of all time , Jacques Anquetil admitted to using amphetamins, and he said he did whatever he wanted with HIS body, also that type of drug was not illegal at the time, and EVERYBODY knew Jacques did it... and he was still a HUGE heroe among his people...drug or not, Lance was still the best during 7 years...and Dr. Fuentes´s comment doesn´t prove anything and NO Kai doesn´t say it all....it´s so easy to be behind a screen and slander people, Avant from Vegas must be french to hate LA so much...we women think he´s terrible attractive, a real male...and a real athlete...whether you like it or not...in case you didn´t notice evryone is using something...it didnt make them No 1....
