Seems to be the common theme for all the ills of the world, doesn't it ?

You guys are really insecure, aren't you ?

I never said anything about curing the ills of the world.

No, not insecure. Just trying to keep a level playing field. Maybe as an Aussie you don't notice the anti-US bias from portions of Europe. Trade "agreements" come to mind. The treatment of Microsoft in France is classic....but there I go trying to cure the ills of the world [Smile]

If Landis was doping - then good bye! But let's look at this objectively. Testosterone just doesn't show high on one day only....the guy was doing some allowed meds, etc..

Trade agreements we have also...At least we get to bring our own barrel to bend over.

I've no sympathy for drug cheats in any sport. I've less sympathy when our (Oz) sanctioning bodies accuse everyone else of cheating, then let our athletes with banned substances slide.

trade agreements go the other way too, Pablo. We're often on the end (or on the middle) of US Ag subsidies and quotas, so we're probably just as guilty of an anti-US bias there, but I'd really like to give Floyd the benefit of the doubt.

I just remembered a funny hormone joke. I'll refrain.

"Americans would never cheat!"

Your right. And I believe test results will show him innocent.

Since I started this thread, I will be the one to close it while it is still on an even keel.
