El Paso I agree with you 100% about USADA but they have also selected only those who have said he cheated and willing to testify but they have interviewed and spoken to a whole lot more than the 10 they have on board but these riders said either they will not testify or stated he did not cheat and these riders are of no help to USADA cause.
It would do USADA more service and credit if they said how many were approached and how many said no he did not cheat, how many are no comment as well as the 10 we know of.
Its a lot like only counting the votes in an election that support your cause!!
You bring up some good points here since we don't know who and if any riders really spoke with the USADA.

I'm thinking that this may have been the prime problem that the federal investigators ran into, thus causing them to close their case.

I observed a faslness in Travis Tygart during the USADA vs Floyd Landis case and I wouldn't put it past him to continue doing so.

There is quite a difference between disagreeing and attacking a person Chris.
But, I can see that you still prefer in being dishonest here.
I'm surprised that you're not going to Canada, so that you can have a visit with Gus!
Canada would be great. Texas OK except for the Texans. As for attacking,'the pot calling the kettle black' comes to mind. Anyway, it is all over now. Guilty along with the rest

I will be back in 6 weeks NY, CA, CO, thankfully not Texas
Actually it seems more like you have cold feet and no back bone in coming to Texas Chris.

Problem between you and I was never about disagreeing or disagreement Chris.

Considering that we have many British living here in El Paso and we also have several Canadians who had served in the US military before retiring here in El Paso, I really don't care what you think about anything in that direction.

I rather doubt that you even know anyone from Texas beside myself!

Hope you and Jeannie enjoyed your time here in the US.
