Re: So, is Lance Armstrong guilty or not?

i read the article and didnt really see anything strong enough to convict armstrong (at least IMHO).

an unidentified 'source' is weak evidence, if evidence at all. proof is needed beyond allegations and accusations. sadly, we dont live in an honest world.

i havent been keeping track of this issue, but if armstrong has passed drug testing, they need to come up with more than what they have.

so as things stand right now, i come down on the side of armstrong's innocence. peoples claim are. . .well. . . claims.

      Sore losers still want to rewrite history? Or is it the Xians are upset 'cause Lance won't thank Jebus for his win?

        So it's a Christian conspiracy? :)

          Some of them are SORE losers. :)
    • Some of those accusations are from ex-teammates who later became competitors. I don't see any proof that he ever failed any drug tests. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presumption_of_innocence

            where the sample has degraded over time and the results are no longer reliable. guess it all depends on what they are testing for.

            I'd have to research that.
