When King asked whether he had been stripped of his Tour win, Landis detailed, "It was taken away by the very same lab that's making these allegations," he said of his 2006 Tour de France title. "It's odd to me even more so now that they've made the statement to you. The reason this story is out there in the first place is because of an assertion made by this lab that now says they don't have a comment," he lamented. "So they've started this story and now they don't want to comment on it and I'm here to defend myself and I'm put in a position again where I have to deny this."

I don't disagree. I was suggesting that it would be disingenuous to believe or for Arnie to argue he didn't know the documents were stolen.

i doubt it would stop him from claiming that though. i'm curious if they'll be able to show a money trail from the hacker back to baker/landis. i don't know about the french legal system but in some states the rule on co-conspirators testifying against each other requires some corroborating evidence, direct or circumstantial, so timing of payments and cash withdrawals would be interesting to see.
 
Golly, y'all are far better at defending guys at the head of the doping snake, than the few haters trying to counsel caution, at the fanboys queueing up to stick the verbal knife into small fry, Joe Papp.
Literate, high quality smoke.
This role reversal thingy has a ways to go.:rolleyes:

He's the source. At this point, it's obvious that he's got a dog in this fight.

He's working way too hard and he hasn't failed to provide spin on any of this posts on this thread. He's revealing subtle things that are not in the public domain. So either he's full of crap, or he's on the inside. Although, I don't think he's a lawyer, because he's gotten too much of the Criminal Procedure stuff wrong.

Unlike Brower I do not have a dog in this fight. He has spent the last 4 years of his life trying as hard as possible to confuse and obstruct. You make take that as an insult, but it is fact.

You would think that if I had made so many mistakes you would have actually been able to point them out....but you haven't. You and your buddies would rather just use hominem insults instead of address any of the actual points.

Certainly a good point Patrick. At this point Papp is looking like the American Fuentes.

However prior to the extent of his dealing was know he was still a frequent target, even though he was a small fry.

What price to clear your name!

$802 - return flight to Paris.
American Airline's JFK to Paris CDG Sunday 28th Depart 22:15 arrive 11:35am.
1 week stay then return on Monday 8th March from CDG to JFK.

$550 - one week in a 3 star hotel in central Paris.

Getting around Paris is relatively cheap -he could rent a 'Velib' bike for $2 a day- so $1500 should cover flights, hotel, food and transport.

I am good for $20.

I have a boatload of airline miles, I can take care of the ticket. I also have an old teammate that lives in Paris. Floyd can crash on his couch.

So now all he needs is a couple euros for baguettes.

It was over the internet though, which distorts things. I'm sure if I put my leg hair shavings for sale on t'internet, and selected the websites to advertise on well, I could get 187 customers. In the scheme of things I'd say that was small fry.

If it was 187 customers from the pro-peloton, that would be a different matter. But then he'd have made more than $80k and would be living like Johnny Depp in Blow at the height of his powers.

Don't they have road-kill in France?

Hey, did you notice that he is wearing an OUCH shirt?...is that the same guy who tweeted a big FU to everyone in the world? He sure seems mild-mannered in that interview. Hey wait, isn't that also the same guy who made threats and jokes about the sexual molestation of someone? You know, if he would just shut up, we all might forget what a scummy little fukweasel he is and let this all pass.

Thanks for helping my point.
80 grand from almost 200 customers is $400 a piece. That means the users are very small fry.
80 grand would spot 2 or 3 top riders.

Anyhow, mustn't get to far into this, or else the thread will get teleported to the clinic.

I can't understand how grown men so readily believe anything Landis says, given his track record with the truth.

What is with the serial killer stare into the camera?

You would have thought that if Floyd's sugar daddy got his neighbor Larry King to put him on his show he would have at least prepped him better.

that depends on the 80,000.00 being sales or profits. they said that he earned over 80,000.00 which would be sales less cogs (cost of goods sold)

admittedly i have no idea what markup is but sales figure could be quite a bit higher. and that is what his plea covered, who knows what actual figures and time frames may be.

all this is of course theory, so i'm certainly not stating it as fact, but i'd be curious to know the whole truth in the matter.
