    That awkward moment when someone you look up to and admire for all their good works, crashes and burns, all over their clay feet...

    Good on him. Why rat everyone else out? He finally admitted his wrong doing and the USADA knows for certain how rampid drug use is. Now they can try and implement stronger techniques in drug detection.

    Yeah, but it would've been nice to hear how the maestro himself managed to avoid detection (most of the time) so they could hopefully implement strategies to catch future/current dopers. That said, they may already have a pretty good idea of what techniques US Postal and others were using, so his input wouldn't be that insightful.

    first off, its "rampant".

    second of all, it's not like he was doing this all on his own. bribes to the UCI, money laundering, etc. They're going after him as the lynchpin to unravel the whole system, not to make an example of him, but because he was the worst offender. It's not just riders that are in on it - UCI officials & WADA were involved - the people that are supposed to be enforcing the rules.

    also, the USADA and US federal gov't got involved because US postal team was funded in part by tax payer money.

    first off - That's one that gets internet grammar heroes all excited.

    second of all - It doesn't bother me one bit if he doesn't call out everyone else involved. Like Jackalope said, it be cool to know the details of how he and his team pulled it off so frequently but I'm sure that info will be out in books as years go on.

    1) frequently? it was their modus operandi. It was part of their fundamental plan on how to win.
    2) the basics of how they did it are already out there. Go check out the USADA report and associated testimony.
    3) you should care, because some of the people involved with the "how he got away with it" part of the story are exactly the people that are supposed to enforcing the anti-doping regulations. Including a few people on the IOC. And the current (and previous) president of the UCI.

    He's not drawn up playing the "G" like a 6 string but he's still a hero... An ambiguously gay grammar hero.





    Just jokin... You make good points. You always do. Lance could be receiving mysterious boxes filled with poo and other random death threats telling him to shut it at this point.
