millar is as trustworthy as verbruggen himself

I very much welcome Millar's comments on Verbruggen, even though Millar's ultimate intentions are purely self-serving.
Such pressure from spokespersons like Millar could eventually help bring down McDruggen.

I really fear the UCI villains will go away with this. Sanction the main dude yes, but now hasty move forward while playing lets pretend we are not corrupt and doping is a thing of the past.

There are not many Tygarts out there.
Tygart still has Johan Bruyneel on his 'list of things to do'.
Lets hope Johann will try and cut a deal.
Probably a long shot - he'd make a lot more money putting it on sale in a book.
 
Samuel Dumoulin:
"Si l’UCI veut prendre une vraie décision, elle doit se retirer de la lutte antidopage et demander à ce qu’un système de régulation indépendant soit mis en place. Toutes les autres fédérations internationales sportives doivent faire de même."

"If the UCI wants to make a real decision, it must withdraw from the fight against doping and request that an independent regulatory system is put in place. All other international sports federations should do the same."

Millar says he'll be disgusted if Hein has a future

A bit disingenuous given his age.

He didn't call out Pat then?

I think Millar's neither part of the problem nor the solution - he just makes it harder for everyone else to reach a consensus.

yes, it's disingenuous. but it's still an important blow to verdruggem, given that Millar has an audience of people who believe in him.
So while I think Millar stinks, we should nonetheless welcome these comments.

Sanctions have been ratified.

Phil Liggett has claimed that Lance has now raised $600 million for cancer. Also stated that drugs don't turn donkeys into racehorses... All on foxsports in Australia.

Edit: Lance hasn't confessed or failed a dope test. Nothing to see here.

Phil, Phil, Phil....:eek:

like I said before - we need someone to expose Livestrong if we are going to get anywhere

what a pompous idiot McQuaid is. he is quoted as saying 'Armstrong has no place in cycling', while he doesn't resign, lolol. no matter what you think of Lance and the whole doping thing, he has a major place in cycling history, whether villain or hero. he won the TdF 7 times, it doesn't matter what anybody says now, he was the one standing on the podium when the race finished, you can not take that experience away from him, or me, I saw it on tv, it happened.
results are meaningless from now on, every past result of every pro race is questionable, every result from any race after today will be subject to reshuffling at a further future date when some new technology comes out...
what a great day for cycling, thanks Tygart and the US taxpayers

and congratulations to Greg Lemond, the only American to win the TdF.

YES! After all the Armstrong attacks against Lemond, the Andreaus and myriad others who questioned the greatest sporting imposter of all time, it's nice to be able to (in Lou Reed's words) stick a fork in him and turn him over, he's done.

Let the law suits against the Uniballer begin. May he wind up living with his mother in a used trailer in Plano, TX.

if you read the UCI decision (not the press release) you will see that UCI has numerous issues worthy of appeal with the USADA report. specificly the statute of limitations where UCI states USADA is acting illegaly. UCI however considers this to be a cause for arbitration by Armstrong and not by UCI (his rights are being violated).

Apart from that UCI states that USADA didn't follow proper procedure, and that it isn't independant enough at times (inciting retoric etc.)

http://www.uci.ch/Modules/BUILTIN/g...bjTypeCode=FILE&type=FILE&id=ODE5MjI&LangId=1

so no i would't say that it was weird to think UCI would appeal...in fact the decicion to strip armstrong isn't final yet as both WADA and LA can still go to CAS according to the decision
