    Can he be humble?

      Mountain time.  I have an hour to wait.

      Biking Bad

        Per Lance, no cheating after his comeback

         

        Awe, that made him mad!

        Feeling the growl again

          I cannot post the words I have been using.

           

          Asked whether he pressed people to dope...

           

          "A leader leads by example..."   (his words).  Then says there's a big difference between doping up himself and demanding similar performance by his team, but not explicitly demanding doping.  Gimme a break...

            Spaniel, Exactly!!!    I am the leader!!! I am doing this to be the best!!!   What are you doing for the team?

              "explicitly" was verbally telling them, and he says he didn't although Christian Vandevelde said he did within Christian VdV's book.

              Being "a leader by example", though, he recognized that he did pressure them and he was wrong.

              To me, the distinction made sense.

              I cannot post the words I have been using.

                Yep.  Psychopath.

                :"I saw Ferrari as a good man, and I still do."  -- LA  (ie, total dodge of the question)

                "Is Ferrari the center of doping?" - OW

                "I'm not willing to comment on that " - LA

                 

                "I am deeply flawed.  I deserve this." - LA (finally, something we can agree on).

                  Not enough ownership fir me to forgive. Basically, it would be hard anyway.

                   

                  I wish a good LR or RA guy would grill him. Not some non-athlete. But, I like her early questions. She just really lacks the background to grill him properly.

                    Why would someone need to work so hard to destroy the lives of others, and cover their tracks, if they really felt their activities were legitimate?

                        When I was 12 I was racing a teammate in a training race. The criteria was "no hands, under water"  I looked over to see my competitor using his hands. I used mine after. Both were declared DQ after. I accepted it. I was only a kid. HUGE Lesson
