I never posted on this thread, but here is my take:

I hope that every time they stick Mr Armstrong, the Phlebotomist has a ham fist and a bad attitude and is fresh out of the local Community College.
 
I just love the way that Twitter is being used as a source of "evidence".
It seems to have become the new bible of the evangelical fanboy.

Strange, how one man's word can be taken as gopsel, while those who preach alternative doctrines are looked at as satanical conspirators.

No confirmation afforded, if you haven't got transparency.
Therefore, its no different to some kid appearing here, claiming to be a pro and knowing all. Total bulls**t.

I wonder what Don Catlin is thinking.....

His twittering has become tiresome.

As for dope testing; when was his first test, has he actually done 6 months of testing yet and why did he sack Catlin? - As above

Shogun, you do realise that those Twitter things could be made up? I mean, it's not as if he manipulates the media now is it?

Ha! If he is "making it up" then who is taking the live pics on top of COl de la Madone? and then other people post that they saw him go up...
I think at this point his style is pretty clearly his own and the posts about where he is training etc are pretty for real.

If he is tested 24 times thats two to three times as much as a teammate who podiumed in the TdF and just won the ToCalif. And three times as much as Basso.
etc etc

If you are using undetectable substances or methods then you can be tested a million times and it means nothing. And we know from the 1999 retrospective testing that this is a rider who will use undetectable substances. We know from FLandis, Vaughters, and Andreu that his team uses blood doping, and that is not detectable.
