Can the caption for Lance says 'that he has to further confess that he is a Bulls supporter' .......she says 'Oh no Lance, what next?' or close enough

Let me try and translate this for you.

Arnstrong :   "I must further admit that I support the Blue Bulls".

Response :   "O no - thats disusting, what else."

I have a problem with the word "sies"   - in Afrilaans it more or less is an expressing of utter disgust or distastefulness - cannot think of an approproate English word that portrays a similar level of contempt.

i dont condone lance armstrongs actions one bit, he did the crime, so he deserves to do the time,,,,,figuratively of course.

but theres one thing i hated more than lance armstrongs actions, it was the way he went down. his freinds and former teammates were all the ones giving testimony to bring his downfall.
if it was say sources outside his for lack of a better word inner sanctum, then so be it, but to have his teammates and friends rat himout like that and sell their stories for all it was worth had me shaking my head in disgust, those muther fuckers need to watch band of brothers or something. with freinds like those, who needs testicular cancer.

Sasuke,

 

While I somewhat agree with you, think about it for a second. All of his friends knew the truth for the last decade or so, and Lance didn't exactly live his life in the shadows, or didn't stay out of the spotlight. He basically made all his friends keep quiet for that time while he bankrolled himself off a "charity" and made millions, while suing or bullying anyone who said he doped. What type of friend does that? There was no more rope left for lance. It was over anyway and lance was his own demise. Those riders just needed to clear their concious.

@canrugby,

each to their own i guess. but if lance armstorng was one of my close friends and he was making riches the way he did, i would be like oh u lucky mofo, i would be thinking its pretty stink the way he did it and all, but at the end of the day he would still be my bro.
one of his freinds who admitted to accepting $10,000 dollars to spill the beans on lance, is something i cant comprehend, cos i would never rat out my friends for money, not the way my bros and i wee raised.

Who received $10k?? Do you have a link? Or anything? I've never heard that....

Ahhh. So he accepted 10k to do a tell all interview.....

 

I thought USADA paid him 10k for his testimony.

 

Now that's cleared up, and is very different. Yes, I agree with you. It's a little slimy.

Why wouldn't I trust Beeno, I have posted with him for years, and I can't once recall him doing a vindictive or dishonourable thing.  Beeno is one of the guys who gives this Board life and character....somebody with a real sense of humour.

 

The fact is Dave you can't produce the evidence.....not unless you grow 2 inches.

My take on all thi si stha tLance Armstrong is one among many. This whole thing will slowly come out. I heard on the rdio coming to work there was some Dutch cyclist who is going to spill the beans. Doping was  rife and if you wanted to win you had to dope it appears. Not right we can all agree but a very competitive driven guy like Lance would not stand back. There are many doppers and liars out there in the cycling world. Why otherwise have there been comments about cycling being removed as an Olympic sport? Once you had doppe dan dwon the lies followed as a natural consequence,

They, as has been suggested, need a truth and reconcialition tribunal. Lance is the tip of the proverbial iceberg.

As for ou snapster all one can say is sies snapster! Bwahahahahahaha what chances of making ou snapster fit for  decent society?  He clearly has a big complex about only being 5.10 inches. I suspect though that is in a built up shoe. 5.8 or 5.9 is more likely. Shorties sometimes get these complexes. We should all however be thankful for what we have been blessd with.

Anyhow ou dave's lack of height and excessive girth are old hat now and although dave loves the subject its time to move on. I dont feel that bald patch of daves has received sufficient attention and am sure dave feels the same way! ROTFLROTFLROTFL

Lighten up and live!

Hahahahahaha. Hakwa do you have an archive of unfortunate pictures? Its something a bent oak would have come to think of it!

Moz the failure to produce evidence has been the death knell to ou snapsters case. As a lawyer he should realise that. Produce the evidence or acept the just verdict.

Not on paper KKK, try catch a wake up, unless of course you man up and point me in the direction of this documentation everyone has. You were the stupid idiot that said everyone had documentary evidence of their height, well if that is the case stop beating about the bush and help me locate this document - would it be my drivers licence or possibly be my work pass - come on KKK, give me a clue

Saffex.

 

Blood doping, and the use of EPO's effects different people in different ways. It's exactly the opposite of a level playing field. The people doping will use this as a justification as to why their doing it. It's BS.

 

If I take half a pill of ecstasy, and you take the other half, it will have two different effects on both of us. It won't be the same.

 Did he have mob connections to pull all that off, or were his team mates just weak? I'm sorry, but they were all in it equally and now they are bitter because he won and they didn't. He made the money and they got stuff all. They did not do this to come clean and because of their conscience, this was revenge because of envy. He did not want to share his wealth and they stabbed him in the back for it. Don't get me wrong, I'm not on his side and I'm glad it all came out, but I don't buy into the reasons given for ratting on him.

I don't have a problem with you being mad at the other riders, dbdraad. That's your opinion.

 

But the "mob" comment I find funny. Lance Armstrong kind of does remind me of a mob boss. He has lobbyist he sends to Washington(yes, he does), he has an agent in bob Stapleton who is a PR spin doctor. He is really a genius, you should look him up. Armstrong has lawyers, PR personnel, hollywood connections, political connections(rides bikes with George W. Bush, is very good friends with Nicolas Sarkozy), has threatened to "ruin" people who speak out against him, and MONEY. He "donated" $250,000 dollars to the very same organization that were supposed to be trying to bust him; The UCI. He tried to donate the same amount to the USADA. They rejected the offer. He has paid, bullied, and manipulated his way through the last decade of his life that yes, he is a mob boss.....

It is not only cycing - where doping was rife.  The 2000 Olympics in Sydney was notorious for the fact that it was virtually impossible for non-dopers to win any medals.   There was a drug factory in California that provided drugs that could not be traced by the testing measures applicable at the time,   Most medal winners were as high as a kite when they competing.

However, that was not the only problem - the other issue ws the tendency in Australia to hush up performance enhancing drug users by not revealing the contraventions by their own athletes in all sports.  

When the drug factory was found in 2001 and closed down - there was  marked drop in drug usage - but this did not stop usage of measures in cycling,   Because virtually every team had major drug users in abundance as team members and their would be massive disruptions in the whole cycling sport set-up would be dealt a near fatal blow - the sport authorities hushed up any sign of abuse up to about 2006  = when the started to take action ahainst drug users.   

Talking about the authorities - there was a cassic case in rugby in roundabout 2000.   The Reds were playing the then WP franchise in Super 12 and they suddenly could not find a drugfree player to plat at center - so they used a loosie in that position - since they new in SA they would not get away through hushing up of results.  

Even despite strict testing processes - there is still drug abuse amonhst higher level athletes and cuyclists especially are still abusing drugs.   Armstrong was not the only one - he was one of many.

There still is no concrete test that can be held up in court for blood doping. It's unreal. Athletes would be complete idiots not to do this.

 

Only in 2005 I believe did they finally come up with a test to catch EPO. Also, that's the year random drug testing was introduced in Cycling......................... Lance Armstrong retired in 2005. Hmmmmmmmmmm
