Joe Papp tried to name names and help, and with evidence. No one was interested. Instead, they wanted to tear him down and make him vanish.

The riders are ALL DOPED and they feel they have done nothing wrong. The managers and directors want to make money and win. Its the business. LOL, thats what keeps the sport turning over is victory. It has little to do with it being legitimate. Artificiality in our world is just as valuable or MORE VALUABLE than something being real. Look at the sex trade. :)

BIG MONEY!! And, FAME, and of course sex is what drives people, it was like that 2,000 years ago and its like that now. LOL
I always felt that's what drove Floyd Landis in a sense. Not so much that he was fighting "lab mishandling", that was the public attempt, but because he knew pretty much everyone around him was doping. I mean, since 2006, Kloden, Rasmussen, Sinkewicz, Honchar, etc. have all been officially declared positive in one way or another.

Once again, not excusing his, or especially his legal team and managers reprehensible behavior during his USADA hearing.
