Lance has made us ashamed.

How can one person make other people feel ashamed?

I'm not happy to see that Americans are so stupid in needing to dope and cheat in sports, but it is the current crime that's been taking place within all sports around the world and within the United States.

I'm just pissed off because all too many of you still sit on your complacent butts and bitch about it, but you cannot be bothered to stand up and tell the agencies involved, ie USADA, US Cycling, etc, etc that enough is enough.

Why not do as I did and write your political leaders and the Dept of Justcice in banning all along with the UCI from entering the United States.

And just as I predicted, no one seems to be interested in talking here anymore now that Lance Armstrong provided his attempt at admitting to his own doping.

Will be interesting to see who's still here at the beginning of February.

Before Armstrong finally admitted he had been doping, he had very strenuously denied it for years.

However considering the huge amounts of money involved in placing high, and especially in taking first place, and as opposed to just being another run of the mill athlete, only an idiot would have taken his denials seriously, and regardless of how many drug tests he had managed to pass over the years.

Q: But when and how did I learn that the "chemists" working for the criminals usually are at least several years ahead of the "experts" who are supposed to catch the violators!!

A: Actually, my learning about that had nothing to do with athletics. It had a lot more to do with the fact that I noticed a lot of warehouses and office buildings with major problems, and such as for instance extensive asbestos violations, would go up in flames at about 3AM in the morning, in other words at the standard time for organized crime arranged arson fires in the types of structures that are normally empty on the midnight shift, and almost every single time the "experts" from the local fire department would then insist that the fire had been caused by bad luck rather than arson, since those clowns, er,excuse me,I mean "experts," could not find any sign of the arson related device and/or chemicals that had obviously been used.

So, you're saying that you have a lot of organized crime there in your community.

Even though the fire dept may not be figuring out the problems, wouldn't the insurance companies investigaters be looking into those fires as well considering insurance companies hate paying out the claims?

My, my Gus! Is that the best you can come up with these days?

Most of the time you cannot even write a decent piece by yourself.

Turtle doesn't need any help from me Gus. He does all right all by himself.

News today stated that the feds are going to reinvestigate Lance Armstrong and it looks like they're never going to leave him along. Sure hope that USADA leaves the life time ban on him.

Hope Chris is okay as he's not been around screaming his British Tarzan Jungle scream.

Surely Lance was recognized as his true self some years ago?

Well, George Carlon always had a way of telling it like it is.

But, then I have never held any athlete as a hero in the first place.

I have however enjoyed and respected various atheletes for their accomplishments and success in their competitive events.

But, then heros have never come out of sports in the first place.

Where has geeman gone ? I hope you read and reply geeman as you seem to have gone quiet and are taking a very low profile, since everything we already knew about la was accepted by la himself.
There are so many comments and views expressed in your previous posts which have now been shown to be incorrect.
I am not a gloat er, so i will not go through them and highlight your errors with joy and a condescending manner. The only point a wish to make is about one comment you made some time ago which is just utter nonsense:
"2001 to 2009 EPO was the biggest selling drug in the World. Wonder why that was?"
Where ever you got this quote from (or did you just make it up) it is completely and utterly untrue. The first time i read it i was in stitches laughing. I have now checked up on this online and found it was as i thought utter nonsense. I also have two good friends who work as pharmaceutical reps. So i brought up your comment over a drink one night and they also were in stitches laughing about your comment.
So geeie, try to stick to the truth and stop the embellishing which obviously comes to you frequently while writing. Maybe write some contemporary fiction instead! you certainly have the creative mind for it. Hope your alive up in the glens with bitter bickering pals digging peat and wearing skirts.

Looking at the amount of 'clean' riders now confessing why are we asking why Armstrong took EPI etc.?

Cycling fans knew what was going on and I find it distasteful that people can't look at the sport and accept PEDs were 100% part of it. All the organisers sponsors journalists also knew but only a few wanted to say what was happening.

There is the question 'is Cycling clean now?' I suggest that the question for Cycling and ALL Sports is 'WHAT is the new PEDs' as it will never disappear.

I may be wrong but history suggests otherwise.

I say let them ALL take whatever they want and let's see how far the Human body can be tuned.

So Turtle, what exactly did your pharmaceutical friends have to say about "EPO?"

I know several pharaceutical reps as well Turtle and not all of them have a clue about drugs related to sports. But, we also happen to have several hospitals here in El Paso who have various staff members who are very much into verious sports like that of running and cycling. Many of them have a real understanding about drugs and sports. None of them are laughing.

I suspect that you are a person who has been here before, but maybe under a different name.

Seeing that many sporting fans actually have an understanding of what illegal drugs have done to the health and lives of various athletes, I really believe that you're suggesting here is actually quite stupid as I rather doubt that you would allow any of your family embers in trying that theory out!

With all illegal drugs there are risks mainly due to mis information and organised crime involvement so legalise and you get real professionals who will offer true information making it safer.

The availability of choice does not mean you need to take drugs. It's illegal just now and that doesn't stop anyone doing it!

I agree it can ruin lives but so can many legal substances as well like smoking and drinking!

They're illegal drugs for a reason and we have already seen enough proof that they have killed several cyclists already.

If you're so convinced then have your family members be the first ones to step up and begin taking them!

I think your comment of family members taking performance drugs is irrelevant when my comment is levelled at Sports Men and Women who actively take them anyway! My suggestion is legalise it and they will be bettered cared for.

As far as being illegal that is because someone says they should be! The same people that us who knew smoking killed and caused huge suffering through other illnesses costing trillions to treat. Yes these people who only make decisions to benefit themselves so I don't accept any morality behind bans when they would be lifted in a heart beat if there was something in it for them.
