minoridiot: A couple of us, all who ran track in college, were talking the other day about doping. The consensus is was ALL who are competetive at that level are taking some sort of performance enhancing substances.
This Looks Fun: Subby, way to step it up and not take the easy 1-testicle road.
YoOjo: He was up against Jan Ulrich for his earlier tours, Jan's idea of breakfast in the off-season was cocaine, so I dread to think what he was full of come summer.I don't care either way about Armstrong, he unfairly dominated in an unfair competition, seems legit... it was pretty exciting to watch at the time, I miss the 00's Tours.
Yanks_RSJ: He's not wrong, but that's not what he steadfastly maintained for over a decade.
Edward Rooney Dean of Students: somedude210: monotestyAnd I learned a new word today.
Marcus Aurelius: Yanks_RSJ: He's not wrong, but that's not what he steadfastly maintained for over a decade.So he's not stupid then.
Yanks_RSJ: Marcus Aurelius: Yanks_RSJ: He's not wrong, but that's not what he steadfastly maintained for over a decade.So he's not stupid then.Surely not. Just a liar and self-righteous prick.
Marcus Aurelius: I know quite a lot of those. They're fairly common. I have been known to mangle the truth myself from time to time.
Yanks_RSJ: Marcus Aurelius: I know quite a lot of those. They're fairly common. I have been known to mangle the truth myself from time to time.That's all fine, but let's not act like it's unwarranted to call old Lance out on it, particularly when he was enraged and the very notion that he would do anything untoward."How DARE you people accuse me of doing all those things I'm doing?! I'm a cancer survivor! Everyone else is doping but not me and don't you forget it!"Just like Rafael Palmeiro and Roger Clemens.
Marcus Aurelius: I love doping. The best sports spectacles I have ever seen were chock full of dopers. Steve Carlton speeding his titties off so bad he couldn't stop twitching. Barry Bonds mashing anything thrown near the plate. Lance Armstrong smoking the field on a climb up the mountains. Without doping I would have seen none of this. And some self-righteous busy bodies want to deprive me of this experience for reasons that are completely beyond my comprehension.Fark them. Fark them hard. Fark them long.
PowerSlacker: There's no way Lance could have won seven tours in a row racing clean. I'm not sure he could have won any.Then again, I think the last time the tour was won without doping was in the 1970s.
rosebud_the_sled: There is not a single top-tier professional athlete today that doe snot dope. They are all filthy liars and hypocrites. None of them measure up to the ability of the athletes of 50 years ago.Perhaps there should be a new set of records. A set for filthy cheaters who are scumbags making the fat couch potato statistic keepers happy, and those real athletes that are keeping the spirit of real competition alive. Armstrong, McGwire, A-f**kingcheater-Rod, all of them should be treated as the lying sacks of meat that they are. They are no different than the pretend "wrestlers" on TV.Dance for us, monkeys, dance. Reserve the title of true athlete for those that are adhering to the true spirit of competition. They are all guilty, unless they go out of their way to prove their innocence.
hobnail: rosebud_the_sled: Like deer antler spray, but slimier.
Nogale: OK. I know little about cycling and even less about the Armstrong scandal. However, it seems to me that if - IF - there were ever a Tour de France in which none of the competitors were doping, one of them would necessarily finish first.
Tax Boy: the 2013 edition will feature some of the famous climbs from the history of the race, including a summit finish on on Stage 15, and Stage 18 in which Alpe d'Huez will be climbed twice by the riders, with the stage finishing after the second ascentThe riders probably will wish they were still doping during Stage 18
rosebud_the_sled: These days, we should point and laugh at all older "athletes" who are feeling the results of their steroid use.
