Interesting that based on Horner's performance, if armstrong would have stuck with it he could have potentially put the smackdown on Dawggie this year for his 15th straight title. :D

That was a possibilty when he was part of a consortium to buy the Tour de France. :eek:

Lance 42y old vs Horner 42y old vs The Dawg vs Recharged Contador in the TdF 2014

I recon that tour can get more TV viewers than a world cup.

Anyway, . . . summoning all the Fortune Tellers!!! I'd sell my soul for a chance to peer into the future and see where LA's calls for Trth&Rcl will lead him. Not that I'm a gambling man *hint*hint* but if I were and I was privileged with access to a real fortune teller I'd bet on the following out come: No Where! He most likely screwed the pooch with the Dopra interview. That said--and mind you--I'm neither a gambling man nor do I believe in the efficacy of fortune telling, yet, I'm not totally sold on the popular position (in the clinic) that LA's cache of clout fails to balance and is only left to be slashed with red ink. Oh yeah: kiss my grits if you think that makes me a fan boy. I'm simply a realist. Well, to put it another way, only the future will tell.......

Hein would unretire and proclaim the peloton the cleanest ever. Never tested positive will make a comeback.

Armstrong hasn't changed a bit. Not humble, not going to be more humble. Still a legend in his own mind.

Fully agree. Wonder did his Mother ask Oprah the same question she asked Greg LeMond about Lance being such an a$$hole.

There was a time when I violently opposed LA and would openly bad mouth him in public. That has faded for me now. How does everyone else feel about that now?

It appears Lance figures if he ignores it they will go away. Acceptance insurance, who has a very strong case against Lance, has had to file a motion today to compel Lance to set date for deposition after his lawyers went radio silent. In the motion, Lance's lawyers are cited for "lengthy delays, unanswered calls ... and general foot-dragging."

Sounds like business as usual
 
Seems as if Armstrong doesn't mind paying his lawyers huge amounts in billable hours for basically stalling the inevitable.

So forgive me if I don't show concern over the money he is spending, or how broke he may be. Apparently he has more disposable income than any of us imagined if he is taking to such tactics.

In the end it doesn't matter. He's been stripped of his fraudulent Tour wins and he's a total non-entity in the sport going forward. That's all that matters.

Next is Bruyneel and Ferrari. When is the long arm of the law going to catch up to these clowns? Only time will tell.

I think he won 7 tours, my wife and son thinks he won 7 tours and shoot - everyone I meet face to face that want's to talk about it thinks he won 7 tours.
What I read - that's different.

I think he cheated and is the greatest TDF rider ever.

Huh? A doped athlete steals wins from clean riders and that's okay now?

Maybe you need to realize that he would have never been near a TdF podium without the PED's he's was on since being a teenager on Chris Carmichael's USA Cycling Team. So, no, not a champion. Not an American champion. Not a Lemond, not a Hampsten, not a Major Taylor. He belongs waaaaay down the list of clean athletes that got better results without PED's.

How about making a bicycle race where no one obeys any rules and still pick a winner? That is what you are advocating. I'm the World Champion in this no-rules race! Sucks to be you.

Armstrong should be allowed to work with Ferrari again then, to make it fair. :cool:

Well it worked so far, didn't it?:)

Not that I disagree, when it comes to Wonderboy, but still it can be difficult to know, who started using what, when, and because of that, it can be tricky to make certain conclusions. In a totally clean peloton, off the riders competing against Wonderboy in his 7 wins, who do you think would have won?
