I acknowledge those interviews. i don't like what I said, but they exist. Why? Because i was scared ****less and had been told that I better be scared. Lack of courage? Yep. absolutely. Confused? Conflicted? All the way. You got me.
I'll leave it at that.
Why don't you call up David Walsh and find out my perspective at that point in time. He spent 3-4 days visiting me in Colorado right around then. See what he has to say. It might illuminate you.
There's also an interesting article about Frankie in Sept 2006. You should look that up.
All too easy to sit back and search things I said on google and play "gotcha!"...
You quickly forget the environment in those times, because you didn't have to live through it.
I am on your side believe it or not. I've defended you many a time on this forum as anti-doping and not anti-Lance.
I like what you're doing. Said it 1000 times.
I just feel that there are others who put their b**** big time on the line and got them mashed in the process.

It’s just my reverse way of giving kudos to the "bitter ex-teammates".
That is all. I’m a fan.
I am serious about the blog/website. I think you should have it built. Explaining how power works and blood testing etc. Even think about building a iPhone app. I think it will work wonders. If the common man can understand gridiron plays then the can learn about the intricacies of cycling. (go read up on test cricket and you’ll see the fans have a very deep understanding of the sport).
