    So the USADA proves it will ignore anyone not named Lance, and give anyone not named Lance anything they want in exchange for saying bad things about Lance. I can’t see how anyone would trust the USADA or anyone they payoff.

    I have an idea on how to combat crime: Tell all criminals they get immunity as long as they testify against some random guy we don’t like. Look, all these criminals have agreed to testify — that PROVES this random guy must be guilty. Crime will surely go away now.

    So surreal.

      He is hardly a random guy though Mick.

      I thought immunity was how things worked over there?

        Here’s how it works over here: The only people you can be sure never face prosecution are the guilty ones. 🙂

    Find out who gave the newspaper this “news”. Johan writes for them. Think of USADA response….
    This is possibly an intimidation tactic from the Armstrong camp. I trust USADA much more than Armstrong.

    It’s time to discredit the guys that “created” this – not the riders forced to comply. It’s the director, star and dr’s that need to be removed from the sport – permanently. Not the riders forced to comply. Go USADA!
