Hehe but that's adorable. At least he knows he has loyal fans who won't make the U-turn (dedicated to Hilde ) when the circumastances change.

hmmm, interesting choice of words which I shall blame to the regular MariaV program entitled: "sucking up to a swiss Fedtard".
When being polite is being labeled as a vulgar act, things look kinda sad.

What bothers me about this entire thing is the hypocrisy of sports journalism in all of this: until a couple of years ago, they were still swooning over Lance as the perfect athlete: the intelligent, hard-working ultimate professional.
I'm thinking about one particular journalist who wrote a book about the hero Lance (so, he earned quite a bit of money from it) and now, he claims that he knew a long time ago (since 2000 or so) that Lance was doping.
FFS, how do you combine your hero book with knowing he was doping?

Talking of those hero books: In a library in Australia, they were wondering what to do with all those Lance Armstrong hero books. They came up with a funny solution IMO: they moved all those books to the "fiction" section of the library.


So, after having turned him into a hero, claiming that Lance would never sink as deep as Virenque, Pantani & co but Lance achieved what he achieved due to hard work and sheer talent....yadda, yadda, yadda....many of those sports journalist are doing a massive U-turn on him.
They just go where the money goes: before, the "hero story" sold books, articles, t-shirts, bracelets,... now, the "cheating bastard" story sells articles and will sell books, movies, tv interviews,...
Not that I'm surprised by that U-turn but there's just too much hypocrisy on either side in this particular story. I guess the only explanation is that so many people really wanted to believe in the hero Lance story. It was easier to just push Pantani & co aside as villains.
Integrity doesn't come into it. "Show me the money" is more like it.

Many of those sports journalists were a whole lot more lenient towards Lance because of him being a cancer survivor, which he also used. In his interview, he talks about his life-time ban as having received the "death penalty".
--> Talk to Marco Pantano and Frank Vandenbroucke, dude. Compared with them, you're still being treated like royalty.
I completly agree here. It is really kinda distrubing how hypocritical people are. I can't take this whole public drug debate serious. There is much more money in doping people and winning then there is in catching people and putting the whole sport into a questionable light. So what a puzzler how good the testing is...

It means I still haven't got a rich Swiss sponsor, Tom.

And being naive, correct me if I'm wrong but ITF & ATP are not solely responsible for the drug testing any more, isn't WADA supposed to be the independent body so the cover-ups of the Agassi times couldn't happen? I know I'm too naive.

I still think he was wrong.

I know that opinions of people who like Rafa also only count for me

If she's desperate enough, she can always come and clean my place*, but I think that she's only interested in swiss fedtards.

Belgians are Europe's richest
Swiss does not belong to Europe anymore oh well these manipulated statistics
The average Swiss owns about a million - no wonder she picks us - we are the top of the crop
The Belgians can pack in like Roanic..

...Although I have not found my million yet

I knew that you'd reply quickly to that one.
Edit: ...and another Swiss fedtard replies quickly.
---> Hook, line & sinker.
Too easy.

Obviously, though.
Why else do you think that Maria is fishing in Switzerland? You don't think it has to do with your natural charm, do you? Nope, she's fishing in Europe's wealthiest pond.
