"El País describes Louis Rover as “perhaps the most intriguing” member of Contador’s defence team. The American is an expert in the use of polygraph testing, suggesting that Contador has undergone or will undergo some form of lie-detecting test."

Interesring. Apparently Rover's test is allowed to be used as evidence in criminal court cases in USA.

Anyways, finally something is hapening in the case, though the final verdict probably wont be decided till January (6-8 weeks after the hearing)

Rover's specialty is figuring out if your wife/husband/Boyfriend is cheating on you

You have to be stupid to take such a test while you're guilty. I mean, an accuracy of 61%... Would you, if you're guilty, take this test if there's only 39% chance you'll be declared innocent?

On the other hand, there is a 10% chance an innocent person is declared guilty...

This makes me wonder... It's much, much more safe for Contador's team to use the test in their defense when they already know the results.
 
"Did you willingly take a clenbuterol supplement during the 2010 tour de France?"
-"No."

Alright ladies and gentlemen, we have a 2010 TdF winner! He told the truth!
Uhuh. Let me phrase those questions please. See how clever a liar he really is.

Would the defense lawyer be the one moderating questions, or is common practice to let the prosecutors offer their input?

- Have you ever seen evidence of a team mate using dope when you were riding for a team of Bruyneel/Armstrong?
- Did Bruyneel have any active doping related role?
- Have you ever participated in any practices or taken substances as described in the WADA code as prohibited?
- Is your sexe masculin?
- Did you ever visit or receive visit from a Dr. Fuentes?
- Is Dr. Fuentes your gyneacologist?
- Is Contadope a nickname that suits you, based on the evidence you are hiding?

Okay... That one's just plain creepy... I wonder if anyone doubts it.

Is there a courtroom in the world where a lie detector test is admissible? I think the 61% accurate, if true, says it all about its usefulness. Somewhere above reading entrails but not far above flipping a coin.
 
I've not watched the video, but I assume he is taking some sort of lie detector test. If so, then the "are you a man" question" is typical. As I understand it, they always ask a few such "obvious" questions to help establish a base line for the test.

Also please note that the term in english is "gynocologist" and not the offensive term used earlier in this thread.

He has an entire team to take lie detector tests for him.

Why does he do this? Why does he turn to this kind of pseudoscience? That's just BS and totally insane. Come on people, a lie-detector test! WTF?!

Why not ask them to match his DNA to the Funetes blood bag? Or better yet, demand that WADA/UCI/Spanish authorities test those blood bags. I mean, now that he seems to be so eager to prove his innocence...

Perhaps he should have thought of this earlier and shoved a hair sample down the throat of the tester so they could rule out long term clen use...but hey, why let the tests decide when you could do a lie-detector test?!

Pathetic...
