Bold/Italic: Active riders/DSes who welcomed the USADA decision (Yes that´s the only ones. What a sad story!).
___________________________________

++; Spoke out clear & direct, and said/hinted that the ban was the absolute right decision, and/or called it what it is: Armstrong is/was a doper.
+; Saying/Hinting that the decision is correct, but ended shy of naming Armstrong directly and calling it what he is: a doper and liar.
0; Undecided speech; trying to be sarcastic; no direct saying that it is the right-and-only-decision that has been made by USADA.
-; Rubbish like: "It´s too late", "if" (there is no "if"; USADA didn´t just roll a dice, but got trou the evidence and a revisory board before doing the preferral of charges), "it´s past", "hurts cycling", "what is the gain", etc...
--; Absolute pro Armstrong (even taking over "original" Armstrong phrases): "witch hunt", "was/is good for cycling", "never positive", "no evidence", etc...

He´s talking everyday on ESP. He was never shy to mention all the evidence on Armstrong. He´s just a little pi§$ed that cycling has a bad reputation...
 
I don't have cable or sat, so no Eurosport for me. Unless I happen to find a German ESP stream - Have to say Leclercq is about the best thing that has happened to them in a long while. Good to hear he's outspoken about Armstrong. I will try to get a German ESP feed for the next days or a recording of the last days.

And by the way: I've just got through Jimmy Engoulvent's twitter. He deserves a ++ (if not +++).

On Skysport24 they showed two Texans, who both still stand by our beloved Lance like a rock.
Thanks.

You can count me in too. A flawless "--".
 
Did anyone get the reaction from Hombre or House? They were BPC before BPC was BPC.

There is no joy in Mudville.

Interesting how many minus minuses are attached to people in positions of power in cycling but, hey, it's a new dawn. Everyone says so.

"the best thing that has happened to them in a long while" - totally agree.
My feeling is, he got a little bit arrogant lately. But not that I would bother.

He knows the circus and is something like a walking cycling-almanach.

Anyway, I am happy that we got rid of that Leinauer-troll. And at the Tdf, that über-hater Schulz was hardly involved, just doing his blog in the internets.

Your avatar - saw this movie few months ago. Venedig etc.
Somehow strange, but still good movie. Could hardly sleep and had some bad dreams. That bad, red troll. lol

- Scott McGrory

Was on radio after the capitulation and mentioned all the Lance buzz words like Witch hunt, done good for cancer, 10 years ago, more cancer stuff, etc. Nearly made me spew.

You could probably add in Tomalaris and Tan if someone wants to wade through their twitter rubbish, I had the misfortune for someone to retweet them into my timeline.

I'd put Phinney at - or even 0, unless there's something I missed.
He was praising Lance, but not doping related one way or the other. But then better keep quiet than hailing a liar & cheater. That´s better and surely qualifies for a neutral "0" at least.
Anyway he doesn´t qualify for "--", so i put him at "-"...

in, with a big fat "--".
 
My suspicion of why we haven't heard from GL, GH, FL, TH et. al. is that they've been cautioned to avoid the press or public to avoid any potential for tainting the impact of their testimony.

Well played, Travis!

a Brilliant & Foxxy thread well executed!

Maybe add a Hall of Honor, after the most recent pointed & rational posts.

It's a new dawn only in the sense that Festina was a new dawn...

You know i am a "fanboy" (;)) of Jan. Longtime i forgave him, suffered with him, etc...
But doper or not. If he says nowadays everything is clean, and even Pevenage said Armstrong took the arms race to a new level (thus Jan had to follow), i was expecting more of him. Something like "it´s good that doping fight works nowadays". He has nothing to lose anymore. So his comments were cowardly. I expected more...

i do not concur... jan is long done with this :S he knows he doped and he knows lance did what do you want him to say, he wants to be rid of these questions... good on him I say leave the old man alone he doesnt have to say anything... I like how he says he knows who crossed the line first he knows he cheated too in my opinion as a huge jan fan he is saying the right things just now

The sun sets on this dark age only when Brailsford, McQuaid, and Armstrong start writing epic tunes whilst sharing a cell block. Patty on the jailbar spoons, Dave can whistle and someone can shove a harmonic in Lance's mouth to hopefully shut him up once and for all..
 
2 things:

1) What did Kathy LeMond say?

2) why on earth is she on a "hall of shame"list to begin with? Her husbands been **** on by Lance & Pharmstrongs influence took Gregs bike company/dealings w/Trek down. So how again is she on the "hall of shame" list? Greg was also the.first to speak out on wonderboy...... Please explain?

It's a mislabeled list. Should be called "Lance responders" list or something. Pun intended.
