He never said there wasn't a program, just not one he could "see".
"I never saw any such things." LOL.
powerste said:Kinda like Jonkers...another person not named by Floyd says he hasn't seen anything.
alanshearer said:Seems all part of an orchestrated PR effort. I suspect we'll see a similar story about once a week. Most, like Jonkers and del Moral really won't be saying anything, but their statements will still be dressed up and packaged as if it were something significant. It wouldn't surprise me if every once in a while they bring someone forward who carries more weight.
Yeah, there was doping on US Postal. I gave each and every rider their morning shot of epo, methamphetamines, testosterone, HGH and coke. I did it all, I provided it as well.
Digger said:I am a bit worried to be honest. I may need legal advice from people on here. I didn't see Lance doping either. Does this mean I could be called to testify on his behalf?
The beauty of this case is that if everything goes according to plan they won't need Landis at all.fatandfast said:I would keep your calender open if I were you They have asked Papp,Parkin and Lemond about Lance's state of mind so it's not to far fetched that our government may solicit your opinion. Plus keep in mind that they are starting to go after people that lie in congress so we will all have jury duty soon. If we have learned anything about justice it's that all those times Landis swore to tell the truth didn't count..those were just practice. Now that he is penniless he means what he says. I can't wait to see Landis on the stand and they ask about his character..When the Armstrong legal team present all those blood and urine tests that came back negative Landis will yell out"those don't count I saw him in a bus and we ran red lights in Texas!!"
Only if by "holding off" you mean "treating to some coffee".hfer07 said:but in all fairness & according to his own statement, he could be right- he couldn't have seen anything, since LA & Co were doping inside the bus, while he was outside with the hog checking the road & holding off the anti-doping chaperons ....

There's an 'is' in 'Polish' - so I wouldn't push it if I was you.Polish said:It may come down to a definition of what doping "is".
Is transfusion one's own pure blood doping or a not allowed method?
Maybe someone needs to ask the Doctor if he witnessed any blood transfusions.
Hinault has questioned if blood transfusions are a "PED".
Ullrich's lawyers have argued that transfusions are not a "PED".
Lance: "I never used PEDs"
But Lance, c'mon, you were seen transfusing blood!
Lance: "Oh that...not a PED"
How about the EPO in 1999 for crying out loud?!
Lance: "CFD not a PED. Seriously, in my case it was a Cancer Fighting Drug. Not a PED. Livestrong."
(0:00)Evil Euro 'reporter': "Lance Armstrong, Floyd Landis accused you of doping. What have you got to say to that?"
Matt Damon (as Lance): "Absolutley nothing to say".
Evil Euro 'reporter: "Did you ever use Performance Enhancing substances... sir?
Michael Imperioli (as Lance): How many times have I answered that question?
Evil Euro 'reporter': Well answer it now.
Robert DeNiro (as Lance): The answer hasn't changed. Don't ask me another stupid fucking question like that.
Cut to podium shot of Lance (Matt Damon) on podium - hire a midget to be camerman so "Lance" looks tall and imposing.
Add in footage of an actual bike race.
Cut to scene of Bruyneel looking baffled - played by Marlon Brando.

psychlist said:Correct me if I am wrong, but has anyone who has come forward to defend Armstrong in the past month or so been an American citizen? Easy to make claims when you are not in the US and subject to a subpoena by the Novitsky grand jury.
One good reason for them to not rush to call Landis a liar is that they might well be proven to be lying later on. Granted, that's not as bad as being sent to jail, but it's still a situation where they don't have anything to gain from coming out publicly to defend LA. Unless they're already gaining something, that is. *cough* Monetarily *cough*. But I don't know how likely that is, or if it would made any sense as a defensive strategy.henryg said:Bingo. Notice how no one who might have to pay a price for lying has anything to say. Why wouldn't they all be rushing to call Landis a liar and state unequivocally that none of it is true?
Notice no one will challenge specifics of what Landis says they just attack him personally.
