So if one criminal escapes prosecution, all of them should?
Landis deserves investigation as much as the next fraud.

You do realize that backhandedly, you reiterated my point.

Floyd's in Australia at the moment. I'm not sure he cares.

The Floyd fairness Fund was to fight the charge that he had synthetic testosterone in his system. To this day he insists that he did not take any kind of testosterone and that he should not have been busted for that. He did admit to all knds of hematocrit enhancing doping, but he was not busted for that and did not fight that charge with the fairness fund monies.

He needs Fabiani. This is much more of a waste of taxpayer money than the Armstrong investigation.

I know we all love Floyd, but the Floyd Fairness Fund wasn't cool. It was a blatant fraud despite the usual narrative about most money coming from LA and therefore it not mattering.

It's turning out to be an absolute disaster. And it's only April.
...and now this. It's hard to know whether to laugh or hang one's head. Simply mental. Mad. An absolute farce.

Maybe this is Nov's backdoor way of getting the Lance file out in the open. Floyd said "charge me" then we can introduce all the evidence collected.

Not sure we all love Floyd.

Just another rider who s**t on the sport but remains in the headlines.
