Of course it does- as it might cloud the issue, in the cold light of day.
So don't go raining on his parade, this is snow joke.

Or maybe you'd care to speak about Floyd being charged with fraud.

Although this is the Floyd thread I’m the Hog and have latitude.

The SCA case has always be the great mysteries to me. This is why I have the Nov back door theory going on. You’d think now the Federal Investigation into Armstrong has been dropped that SCA would start to look at their options. They’re not a big company so to part ways with 7 million was a big dent. Something doesn’t smell right. That’s why there’s so much irony in all of this. If one man can lie to gain money at the SCA arbitration (and accept it) and not be charged then another raised donations to support his appeal is charged seems strange to me. Something is not adding up.

Maybe just me being crazy.

It was just a joke. Now about the Floyd Fraud stuff....maybe patrick does Knot NO anything about that?

I still have a feeling the fed's are trying to determine if the fund was used just for defense. Just my opinion.

First bolded part - Ok last time my poor attempt at humor flew right on past. I will try again....What is up with the fixation....on "Novitz's back door"?

Second bolded part - Well yeah ...duhhhh "something doesn't smell right."!

Seriously you might be on to something with regards to other options by the fed's. There is always more than one way to skin a cat.

Still no other media outlets picking-up the story, but Landis is starting the appeal of his French conviction:

I guess what I meant was regardless of the Federal investigation being dropped a lot of information came to light. The normally impenetrable Armstrong was penetrated! What I still find odd is why the likes of Walsh/Sunday Times and the SCA have remained tight lipped since the end of the investigation. Surely they would want to begin proceeding to reclaim some of their losses? Or did they write it all off long ago? Not even a comment?

Maybe Nov’ wants to blow the back doors off? Do it the old fashion way?

You mean like Livestrong?

Deceiving donors that contributions go to funding cancer research but instead go to "survivorship" and "global awareness", cutting deals with Livestrong assets to enrich its founder and expending millions for an international knees up to market its founder immediately after his Comeback 2.0 TdF (the script was that he was supposed to win that TdF but Contador spoiled his Irish knees up party).

You may be right on Floyd and his close supporters being suspected of using the FFF funds for purposes other than the mission statement. That would be a legitimate pursuit by the Feds of misrepresenting donors to obtain contributions.

You should put it to Markvw. He is omniscient on all issues.
