Actually they just need to show he probably was cheating scum, something that would be extremely easy right now.

If they get PROOF ABSOLUTE then armstrong goes to jail for perjury and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.

Sorry, that is not gonna wash. Lance was drug tested before each race and he tested clean. It has been just a witch hunt ever since. Somebody is jealous that he could keep winning in spite of the health set backs. Armstrong is a winner who will forever have that.

It's a civil case, dumbass. As I said, they don't need to prove anything.

If it's more likely he took drugs than didn't, he loses the case. If it can be proven beyond reasonable doubt, he goes to jail for a few years.

Tests proved he didn't...just because those peanuts that he beat are saying after all these years is not proof...but come and get him, limey. We'll give you a sample of Yorktown again.

Good point. In the US, at least, criminal convictions require proof beyond a resonable doubt. OTOH, civil verdicts are based upon the preponderance of evidence. That is how O.J. Simpson could be acquited of murder in criminal court, but convicted of wrongful death in civil court. But it is unclear to me if this case is in the US, UK or somewhere else.

I have been uneasy about this case. I don't really understand how the anti-doping agency works. Even if there seems to be some evidence that Armstrong used drugs, I would think that his having passed all of the drug tests would be the determining factor. It is popular to belittle circumstantial evidence, but it is often much more objective than the testimony of human witnesses. OTOH, why did Armstrong drop his appeal? This is quite confusing since it is apparently a matter of a sport's own disciplary standards. That would be different than criminal or civil laws since, and I assume that cycling is a self-policing sport. E.g., when Pete Rose was banned from baseball, I don't think that there was (at the time) a strong enough case to convict him in court, but that was not necessary. They only had to convince Commissioner Bart Giamatti, and Major League Baseball is pretty much a dictatorship.

Lance is a liar, a cheater and a sorry human being.

But then again, there are those who still think OJ is innocent.

LOL!!!

I think he dropped his appeal, because he is just plain tired, and would like to spend time with his family. He has had the public eye on him for decades, and we all know the tar and feather brigade has nothing else to do, and that they do not stand by their own test results is admission of failure on their parts. Tour de France has forever lost any status in my eyes. And from now on their advertisers will lose my business. The tests were clean, the man won. It's a done deal, drop it.

I don't claim that Armstrong did or did not violate drug policy -- I was not there. I do wonder, however, why he did not fail a single drug test if he is demonstrably guilt.

There is no evidence of dopiing in bloodwork tests, peanut. No doctors proved Lance was doping.

OJ should've been executed..you need a straight jacket.

If you read through the witness accounts and the statements you will find that the profound scheme was the use of a performance enhancer and a masking agent which was successful in the early years. Once the questions were asked and a suitable process for looking through the masking agent was produced, the filed drug samples were re analyzed and found to be tainted.

The proof is without question.

Armstrongs rants are of no avail.

He should try to be a man and accept the ruling.
