Re: LANCE ARMSTRONG TESTED POSITIVE!

Following up, the only thing that annoys me is how Lance has been crowned the God of All Sports, and nobody here will recognize Federer for his achievements last year

Re: LANCE ARMSTRONG TESTED POSITIVE!

They didn't even test for EPO six years ago, so this is all irrelevant anyway. You can't use 6-year old samples to accuse someone of something, especially when they can't even prove that those samples really did come from Armstrong.

This thread title needs to be changed, because it's complete bullshit.

A very significant part of Lance's appeal is that he is a cancer survivor, which really sets his athletic achievements apart from everyone else.



C'mon, Lleyton!

Yeah, I think the will to beat cancer was what gave him the edge over the other cyclists. However, I doubt the American media would have given a crap if he weren't one of ours. Of course if Fed were American...

They want to throw him off the podium, like how a year ago everyone was out for Paul Hamm...

It's not official and it's not proof. And who are "they" that decided? The French press? Please.

I suppose that means we can no longer say that Roger will win the US Open - as clear as Lance's drug test.

But that thankfully never happened.

Well said Miguel Indurain.
well, if its in the past, then of course it doesn't count.

WOW!

And the AP are always correct, aren't they?

What does Jon Wertheim have to say about this?
