I do think HV correctly called out Landis for his "victim" mentality in this statement of Landis: "I did see it and I do get satisfaction from seeing others made happy. My life could have been focused on that had you done your job (honestly) before I ever had the opportunity to wear a yellow jersey." Huh? Is he really blaming HV for his decision to dope his way to a TDF win? Both men need to grow up.

I never took any money, presents or other remunerations.
