RSNT to decide on Bruyneel today

Lëtzebuergesch is such a funny sounding Language :D

Nice little article there, but I don't thing that sacking Bruyneel will be enough to get RSNT off the hook. They worked with Celaya, who was an integral part of the USPS system and there are several pictures as part of the USADA reports that show current RSNT riders with Motoman - not really a conincidence, is it :rolleyes:

Only reason for having a meeting to decide that now, as opposed to after Bruyneels hearing, is to get rid of him. USADA will listen to you Johan, but your team can't be bothered, what do you make out of that? Why not come clean to USADA and spill all the beans? Did Leipheimer really stop doping in 2006? Wouldn't it be fun to give it all an extra spin?

Yeah, I am sure he can shed some light on Contador during the years of 2007-2009.
 
Of course it's the better move to sack him before he has a hearing or is officially banned.

Wow, http://www.wort.lu now suggesting as a big headline on their homepage that JB might have spiked Fränk to bind the Schlecks to RSNT (only in the German langauge version, english is different.
Apparently, it's in L'Equipe today as wort.lu name it as their source. Anyone has the printed version and can clarify that? The article is called "Fränk Schleck au coeur d'un règlement de comptes"

Busted! Great heads up Screaming Fist!

I am not sure if I totally buy the idea of Bruyneel spiking Frank Schlek's urine sample. I don't doubt that Bruyneel is dirtier than a mofo, but it would be way more likely that Frank knew what was up with Bruyneel, and he mst have known what he was getting into when he signed with Bruyneel.

A year ago people would have laughed at the suggestion. But now....

anything is possible.

Putting Shleck's own doping aside for one minute I think there credence to this story.

most definitely, that would be fun.

as ManInFull suggests, with Spanish authorities still sitting on the Puerto evidence, it would be fun to see Hog spill beans on Dirty as well.
 
Cancellara unsure about Bruyneel. Sounds like music to my ears. If he doesn't get banned, I hope that no one, neither sponors or riders, won't work with him again. Hopefully we've seen him for the last time in professional cycling. Good riddance!!

Hog holds the balance of power. If UCI go hard line then he can smash them with all he knows. Yes he'll take down himself but what has he got to lose now?

Go Hog!

this is the article from today's printed issue of l'Equipe:
FRÄNK SCHLECK AU COEUR D’UN RÈGLEMENT DE COMPTES?

L’annonce du contrôle positif de Fränk Schleck a fait l’effet d’une bombe lors du dernier Tour de France à Pau. Dans l’entourage du Luxembourgeois, beaucoup furent frappés par le détachement de Johan Bruyneel, le manager de l’équipe RadioShack, comme s’il n’était pas vraiment surpris par ce qui arrivait à l’aîné des Schleck. Auparavant, Fränk et Andy s’étaient opposés à leur patron et avaient manifesté leur mécontentement, comme à travers cet abandon quasi délibéré de Fränk au Giro. Les Luxembourgeois n’avaient pas non plus caché leur volonté de changer d’équipe. Ce contrôle positif est finalement tombé à pointnommépour Johan Bruyneel. Aucune équipe ne voudrait embaucher un coureur suspendu. Et comme Andy ne partira jamais sans son frère, les voilà donc contraints de rester chez Bruyneel. Grâce à ce contrôle positif ou à cause de lui ?
 
When Frank Schleck tested positive for a drug that didn't quite fit the profile, I jokingly suggested that Bruyneel had set Frank up either by spiking his drinks, his injections or his sample or by using his influence at the UCI to find Frank positive in some way.

Found it.

There will be a lot of people trying to give Hog a soft landing somehow on this one 'cos if he goes down hard e.g. a lifetime ban from cycling and no income, it could open up the impenetrable, untouchable and hidden centre of professional road cycling, the Belgs. Cycling would implode.

Good one! But even if it's not true, now Frank can take advantage of it.
