I have no idea. But I have little to no trust on the Spanish judicial system.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

I get what you mean about Virenque. Yes, the French populace have shown some mind-boggling instances of hipocrisy when it comes to cycling and doping. We've been documenting that on the Cycling Thread.
I always say when in doubt,run in circles.

Anyways,Cycling isn't the only sport that deals with doping,it is though the "famous" one,the scapegoat.

But nobody cares.

Cycling is the scapegoat and the rest can carry on with it.

Re: Lance Armstrong set for tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey

If more ex-professionals sportsmen/women come out and admit to being part of organised drug taking,or witnessed it happening,chances are that could change.

Re: Lance Armstrong set for tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey

It is the culture that has to change.

And the prevalent cultural view these days is that if you're a cyclist and dope, you're the devil and deserve eternal punishment. But if you're a footballer or a tennis player and dope, all you deserve is a couple of spanks and off you go, carry on everybody.

Agreed. I actually think that Handball might also be rife with doping, at least at the upper echolon level. The top stars have to play insane schedules year in and year out (league games, league cup games, international club games + 1 big national team competition like Euro Champs, World Champs or Olympics + qualifying matches) and it never seems to catch up with them. And don't even get me started on winter sports like Biathlon or Cross Country Skiing. I don't think you can contend for a medal in these sports without being on something.

Mirnyi | Maria K. | Ginepri | Kim C. | Verdasco | Elena D. | Dimitrov | Aga R. | Haas | Ana I. | Tsonga | Sabine L. | Del Potro | Julia G.

Re: Lance Armstrong set for tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey

Experts did not get to review Armstrong's blood values beyond may 2009. Shocking.

Why must corrupt jerks run everything?

Re: Lance Armstrong set for tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey

Hedo Turkoglu, the NBA basketball player, tested positive and has to face the insanely hard penalty of a 20 games ban (a month and a half).

NBA: The Ultimate Dopers' Paradise.

What I wonder is how the hell he managed to get caught. The NBA doping tests are the biggest joke ever.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal
