Who gets tossed under the bus?

Page 3 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
I just don't think is anybody to be "tossed under the bus" other than LA & Hog. The single intent from to silence anyone involved in the case willing to speak out is the shortest path to make the bomb go off--even if they somehow find a way to do it- they're even exposing themselves to be not trust worthy of any mutual cooperation. Someone mentioned Big George-which by any rationale- is crazy to think of him being the lamb to be sacrificed, but in a survival scenario, I have no doubt in my mind they'll sacrifice as many as they must to & go through any means to get themselves a fair deal--but again- what is going to be accomplished by LA/Hog to put down Hincapie, when the whole world knows that all fingers are pointing at them?...

if George goes down, the the entire fanbase will realize that if their favorite current pro was up to his neck, then why are we picking on Armstrong and Hog.

Choose the current darling and universal favorite. Hope the public sees the sport as a corrupt cesspool and Hog and Armstrong were only playing by the rules the sport set.
 
DOn't know if anyone is really going to be thrown under the bus. There is probably enough evidence and testimony that all the rats are squealing on each other. They will all be hurt to the extent of their popularity. So LA and JB hurt the most, as well they should. They orchestrated the whole charade.
The feds have bigger fish to fry though. As runninboy brought up about the drug supply. Amgen, the sycophant investors? Hmmm. Will be interesting for sure.

IMO that is what he was doing a few days ago when he gave an interview where he was saying that cyclists dope because of the demands of the sport - at the same time saying cycling is so very tough on dopers.

My guess is that he will blame the 'Europeans' ie when I came into cycling it was clear that you had to dope to win. Look at Ullrich, Pantani, Riis, all dopers.

He may even blame his cancer on doping, and then switch the whole debate back to being about cancer.

This is why all he wants to talk about is his 5 kids (obviously wanting to become the father of a nation) and cancer.

This way he appeals to the USA-USA-USA crowd - and he shifts the blame onto others. He throws others, and cycling (as a sport) under the bus and he makes himself the victim.

this will probably be the outcome that the media, public and more importantly his sponsors will love and want.....but it all depends who suffers for this to allow uniballer come out as the victim and get away with it.

too many people would have to take the wrap in order for uniballer to be allowed be seen as the victim. too many allegations about him being a boss in it all, organising the doping within the team etc...

If he has to throw cycling as a sport under the bus to protect Lance Armstrong the business, then he will.

If that means ****ing on the UCI, his team-mates, Hog etc then so be it.

He is trying to get people to think of him as Lance Armstrong 'Cancer survivor and fundraiser' rather than Lance Armstrong 'cyclist'.

I am sure a tearful interview on Oprah will be along soon enough. Him, his 25 children, his mother, his girlfriend who looks like his mother.

Lance Armstrong poor boy made good, corrupted by evil Europeans, suffers cancer because of them, but comes back and defeats cancer.

now your sucking diesel...:D

i think your right he is gonna try and leave cycling lying bleeding in the middle of the road like a lump of road kill while he does his marathons and triathlons, if he can before the feds get him, and distance the cycling and become a 'sports star'...

Oprah is stopping her show so that might be the spanner in the works:D

In Lance's position, which does seem a bit desperate at this stage, by lack of any kind of shame, I would have myself recommitted for extensive checks (both kinds).

Wonderboy and the Hog have been collecting secrets for years. Riders, Directors, internet posters..... Now that it is hitting the fan who will they toss to the wolves first? They will make an example of someone as a message to the others to shut up.

My money is on a Director and maybe a rider.
please let it be Chris Carmichael

You been talking to the Fabricator?

This is crazy enough to be a great "final solution" strategy.

Wonderful effing world we live in, eh?

What happens if Lance and Wiesel are wrestling to toss the other under the bus and they slip & fall - and both get squished by the bus? Bump Splat.

Sadly, 2 weeks or so later, no one will even care.

Just another cyclist/bus fatality.

Well Lance should be ok - as we know he keeps some reserve blood in the bus.
But Wiesel could end up as roadkill.
