The Landis whistleblower lawsuit

Is here IN ALL ITS GLORY (google docs pdf).

Taking blood out, putting blood back in, hidden refrigerators, ball patches, the whole nine yards.

Of course Floyd prior to singing like the canary had been telling everyone how clean he was, begging us to believe he was railroaded by the lab, and asking for money from his loyal fans for his defense. The Floyd Fairness Fund. And wrote a book called Positively False. Now he stands to make a boatload of cash as a Relator in a fed whistleblower case.

The allegations are probably true, and I maintain that Floyd’s win in the Tour was one of the greatest of all time, illicit though it was, but Floyd is roughly as credible as a goose poop.



Lance Armstrong wants to race triathlons, Vaughters reaches seventh level of weaseldom

He’s one of those triathlon guys when it’s all said and done.

…In the end, no matter how much Tygart and Armstrong had fought each other, they still needed each other. Armstrong, 41, would like to resume competing in triathlons and running events that are sanctioned by organizations that follow the World Anti-Doping Code. Tygart wants to know how Armstrong so skillfully eluded testing positive for banned drugs for nearly a decade.

[…]

“I think it’s very valuable to them to know exactly how Lance avoided getting caught and how tests were evaded,” said Jonathan Vaughters, a former Armstrong teammate, a vocal antidoping proponent and a current co-owner of the Garmin-Sharp professional cycling team. “They need someone on the inside to tell them how it was done, and not just anyone on the inside, someone on the inside who was very influential. Someone like Lance.”

Bunk-owski. Tygart knows exactly how Armstrong dunnit, because the other guys who had also “eluded positive tests for nearly a decade” testified all about it. And those guys are on Vaughters’ team. He reaches the seventh level of weasel in his quote above.

(After 6-month suspensions those fellas will be back racing and cashing in on their doping by next season. But of course, they all decided at exactly the same time not to do it any more, and race totes clean now. ALL CLEAN NOW. Go home.)

When reading or listening to Vaughters it’s important to keep in mind some things: THE SAME PEOPLE
