Skip to comments.26 TESTIFY AGAINST LANCE ARMSTRONG IN DOPING CASE
Posted on 10/11/2012 9:35:47 AM PDT by Para-Ord.45
Lance Armstrong said he wanted to see the names of his accusers. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency gave him 26, including 11 ex-teammates.
About 200 pages filled with vivid details _ from the hotel rooms riders transformed into makeshift blood-transfusion centers to the way Armstrong's ex-wife rolled cortisone pills into foil and handed them out to all the cyclists.

Until this, I thought Armstrong was being railroaded. The only way he could come out of this with a less than crappy smell now is if it was shown that all the witnesses were coerced into lying. Good luck with that.
In this country, we do not convict people on drug charges based on hearsay evidence or witnesses who all have admitted to or have been found to be drug users.
Yes, we do.
It sounds like they were ALL doing it and they want to focus on one guy. Let me guess the others will all get off scot-free for testifying.
Are you daft? People go to jail every day based on the testimony of fellow drug users and sellers.
"I loved the game. Maybe I'd have four of five new things on a car that might raise a question. But I'd always leave something that was outside of the regulations in a place where the inspectors could easily find it."
The history of bike racing is replete with performance enhancement. If they can't enforce their rulz at the time, they need to get more enforceable rules.
Attempted enforcement >8 years after the fact (though all contemporaneous tests results appear to have been negative) means not enough effort is being put on current enforcement.
These folks appear to be attention whores seeking continued and increased (public) funding of their fiefdom.
Ah, a Lancebot.
Most of the Lancebot Freepers have gone to ground.
Should I go back and check my posts and list their nome de plumes hoping the have the guts to try say stupid things like you just did?
Maybe 26 individuals are all lying and only Sir Lance is telling the truth/sarc off
Please provide evidence that Armstrong had a positive drug test.
Read the report.He tested +
In jurisprudence overwhelming circumstantial evidence can does and has convicted criminals.
Shame of so called “freepers”. Acting EXACTLY like obamabots who still say it was a video and their messiah can do no wrong despite the overwhelming evidence
I am of the opinion that if Armstrong wants to “fix” this, he will need to file a slander / defamation lawsuit against both the organization and the individuals in the report .... and win the lawsuit.
Wow. You’re really obesessed with this. Do you have a mancrush on Lance? You’ve posted 2 very similar articles within 13 minutes, and in both you beg for someone to argue with you.

There are no positive drug tests.
And we know that most every other person who competed against Armstrong has had positive PED tests.
They’ve probably also had their wins vacated. Most wins in cycling get vacated in a few years. The difference between them and him is once they got caught they admitted it, he still insists it’s all lies.
That is about the only way he comes out of this whole.
The IOC is a vipers' nest of corruption. The USOC was likely only under control while Romney was in charge. Where's the auditors report on the most recent budget expenditures of these attention whores?
I fully believe they all "do it"....but LA bucked the system and refused to admit it, which would ruin his miracle man image...
I remember that Tour race where he fell off his bike, got a nice abrasion on his leg, IIRC, fell way behind, on a HILL, and somehow, someway, he got back on and pedaled up the hill and won the race....
amazing feat, and in retrospect, very suspect....
Indeed. What gets me is that Ben Johnson wins the 1988 100m gold tests + and subsequently gets stripped of medal and his previous medals as well. Now a few years later documents are found in the former East Germany after reunification showing virtually the entire East German olympic program was doping. Now that involved hundreds of gold medal performances over the years East Germany competed. IOC decides its all too much to strip so many medals and thus the sound of crickets.
“amazing feat, and in retrospect, very suspect....”
Is it really suspect when almost every other participant in the race is using PED’s?
It’s just like any other drug case, get the little fish to turn in the big fish, that’s how it’s done. Armstrong was the biggest fish.
Hearsay, not even admissible in court. No facts to it. This is a report brought by abuse of government power by an idiot liberal that wants to use his position in government to bury Armstrong.
Right, and he actually expects us to believe that, in a sport full of cheaters, he was the only honest man AND he beat all the cheaters honestly. Suuuuuuuuuuure.
I guess your support for this liberal government employee makes you a “GovBot”, since you like that third grade term “bot”. Nice to know you support the government attacking private citizens without trial. If this liberal idiot of a government employee has evidence of a crime he needs to prosecute it, otherwise he needs to shut up and stop abuse government power to try to destroy a private citizen. So much for you being a conservative.
9 people testifying about their DIRECT knowledge of Armstrong’s doping is not hearsay.
United States Constitution, Article 1, Section 9: "No bill of attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed."
So much for the Constitution and your support of the government abusing its power to slander and punish a citizen without trial.
“is not hearsay.”
It is when it is not under oath in a court of law.
Well, since we’re not under oath in court, everything you are saying is just hearsay, and I choose to disregard it :P
The rumor was that he rode a Ferrari to victory over those 7 years. The rumor has proven to be true:
Well think about it for a minute.
If they were all using it, then how did he pass them all by???
What the hell are you on about? This isn’t a criminal proceeding. The legislature isn’t punishing Armstrong. Get a grip man.
So then why is the government making these statemrnts of slander against a US citizen? Go ahead and explain it for us, we’ll wait.
Slander? It’s not slander to report the findings of an investigation. That’s called reporting the findings of an investigation. Please show a little respect for the English language.
“If they were all using it, then how did he pass them all by???”
Either Armstrong was cheating, or they must expect us to believe he is from the planet Krypton, since he could whizz past all the cheaters with his superhuman abilities.
Still, it’s good that we have stories like this, to remind us that liberals are not the only people capable of wallowing in the muddy waters of self-delusion.
The bad side of Lance Armstrong. Vindictive, tries to destroy ex-teammates and those who loyally served him
more bad and evil side of Lance

“Lance is a cheater. Please stop glorifying the cheater. Lance and company stole the dreams of cyclists who are honest and wouldn’t cheat. It often meant leaving the sport, which many talented and honest riders did, or racing at a lower level and making very little money despite the same sacrifices, or sticking to a cleaner part of the sport like mountain biking. The honest cyclists train just as hard as the cheaters, and some likely also have the “tactical savvy, skill, and other elusive qualities only the greatest of champions possess” they just don’t have that extra “Euro gear” that cheaters like Lance and company made necessary to compete. Oh, and honest cyclists are completely ignored by Bicycling.com while cheaters are glorified.”
